Welcome - J I N X -

This is our new kitty - Jinx

Jinx has fast become Kenny's kitten! Kenny plays, feeds and sleeps with him. And, I think this cat must have some Dog in him somewhere, no matter where Kenny goes, so does Jinx, just like a puppy.

Westport 4th of July

Westport 4th of July

This is our favorite time of year, We all look forward to the peace, quiet and the
schedule - This is the time we sit on the beach, play in the water, crab from the docks, and hangout with our friends.

We have been going to Westport for 5 years now and love it!

Kenny holding his Red Rock crab -- This is perfect, he catches them and I eat them!
( hes not a crab eater)
This picture was taken the last day we were there, Kenny and Taylor, INSANE - Decided they were going to go for a swim - IT WAS FREEZING
We had to defrost them when they were done, but heck their kids right.

We hope you and your families all had a wonderful family 4th

Kenny was the game MVP - Sunday in North Bend @ the Sno Valley Invite

Saturday and Sunday Kenny played in the Sno Valley Invite -- We played so good as a team. For our very first official tournament as a team we did awesome.

Saturday was a hard day -- We lost our first game (bad) 19-6 BUT This was a tournament where the boys could steal, bunt, and run on the 3rd strike if the catcher drops the ball! In Little League, they are not allowed to do that for another year, but the BPA league they are in allows this at their age. So it was a reality check for sure.

Saturday night our 2nd game was awesome, we won 7-6 and it was a hard played close game. The boys learned real quick and love stealing everything in sight.

Sunday was another close game -- We lost.
Kenny did awesome! With the help of his team was able to hit a grand slam and score in 2 runs, he made a double play and a few outs on kids trying to steal bases. He and his team had an awesome game.

After the game the officials called the Coaches and teams to the field, and each coach was asked to name 1 player from the other team to recieve the game M.V.P. -- The Silverdale coaches picked Kenny! WOW -- The whole Shamrock team played so awesome -- I would not have wanted that decision. But my little Kenny is sure excited!!!
