Summertime

Sweet moments in our Sweet NY-er kids summertime...
 Ryan was picked to play in the All-Star tournament.  His team was undefeated and won the Championship!
 He may be one of the littlest guys on the team (#3) but he brings a lot of skill and talent at center field and 2nd base. (During regular season, he played pitcher, short stop, catcher and 3rd)

Forth of July ~ love Rudy's puppy perspective of a parade
the following two photos are from WKTV

Comment from Jill on her fb post: I didn't feel like I was dying even though I look like it ;) Oh...and contrary to the clock, my time was 1:41:10. Didn't start until 11 min after the Kenyans. They were almost done when I started :)
Once again, our daughter, Jill ran in the Boilermaker race in Utica, NY where nearly 14,000 runners participated in the nine point three mile race.
This is the second time she ran and this time to raise funds for an ultrasound for CareNet Pregnancy Center of Central New York, an organization she works for. She raised over $2000!
She works as the director of abstinence education program.
Looking less pained, Jill is on the far right in this photo

Lorraine, you have such beautiful grands. Good for your friend, to run a marathon for a good cause. xo

Love your summer photos! To run in a marathon; wow. Good for her and for a very worthy cause too.

Debbie said...

I enjoyed all your pictures! How exciting to win the all star tournament....3 of my 4 kids played all stars, but we NEVER actually won the tournament so I am impressed. Congrats! And the marathon looked good too. Such a pretty daughter.

Where do you get your pictures in collages? Since piknic closed I don't know where to go?

Have a good rest of your day...

Have enjoyed catching up on your recent posts. My the baseball brings back memories of my boys when they used to play. Some day maybe we'll be sitting at our grandson's games. Your 4th of July breakfast looked so yummy!

Congratulations to both Ryan and Jill. I sure do miss the little league days. As for a 9+ mile run. I would have dropped dead before I ever hit the first mile marker...lol

Way to go, Jill! That's an impressive finish and an impressive fund raising venture. You must be proud of her.

Tammy@T's Daily Treasures said...

Ha! I love the comment about the Kenyans finishing before she even began. :) And the look on pup's face watching the parade is great! Congrats to Ryan and his team. I enjoyed our 10 years of little league -- Zack quit last year so, for once, I was free from running around and that was a very good thing, too. Have a wonderful week. Tammy
