Weekly Image of Life: A Lifetime of Memories

In my premiere post, Diving into Home, I strongly alluded to my love of softball.  I played for a total of 11 years as the starting catcher, and for as long as I can remember I have been a HUGE San Francisco Giants fan.  I grew up admiring players like Kurt Manwaring, Will Clark, Benito Santiago and Barry Bonds, and when the movie The Sandlot was released I envisioned myself as the female lead in its sequel.

Naturally, I was excited to take Alexandra to her first baseball game, and it was a wonderful night!  I don’t know if she will grow up with same love I have for America’s Favorite Pastime, but I do know that this is just the beginning of a lifetime of wonderful family memories.  In the words of my daughter…

This is my Pop Pop.  He’s from New Jersey so I forgive him for being a Mets fan! 😉

Making my entrance, but mommy’s so comfy I’m sleeping right thru it!

Ok, I’m awake!  Let’s see what’s caught my eye…

Flags!!!  I love how they blow in the wind.  So much movement.

I like the view from AT&T Park.  It’s a beautiful night!

Now that guy’s a fan. Giants Nation!!

It’s official.  I’m a Gamer Baby!!!

My family.  Some of the best people I know. 🙂

  1. Sweet! Looks like you had fun! I’m glad you are still doing things you love with miss lady in tow!

  2. Wow, you played for 11 years. So much fun memories. Beautiful post showing lots of love and joy in the family. I always wanted to have my son try softball but he’s been busy with skating, swimming and soccer. How I wish I have more time to bring him to his game practices. You have a wonderful family. Thanks for sharing these amazing memories. Everyday is a chance to celebrate them with the people we care about.

    1. I played from age 7-17 and a year in college until deciding to pursue other endeavors. Definitely some of the best times! I was a P.E. teacher before recently becoming a stay at home mom, so it makes me smile to know how involved your son is in various sports. I have no doubt he knows what an awesome dad he has, and thanks for helping us remember what’s truly important!

      God Bless!

  3. A beautiful post. You have a beautiful baby. What a start to new memories you will have as you watch her grow. Thank you for sharing. Thank you for visiting my blog as well.


  4. I like how the baby was asleep when you first entered the park, and then, she awakes, looks around and probably wonders, “who are all these people?” She’s a cutie. I really like her happy face on your Gravatar.
