Our Annual Pumpkin Baseball Game

It's pumpkin baseball time of year again *Ü* 
Usually we play right after Halloween but the last couple of years we've had to wait until Thanksgiving weekend when Benjamin is home from school.
The 'baseballs' that survived the season.  A few were pretty squishy and we had to throw some away that the mom said would make too much of a mess.  Eeeew!

Nicholas is up first and he smashed every single one thrown to him...therefore announcing, 'who needs practice!'

I am so bummed that I had my camera on the wrong setting and didn't notice it until I had loaded the pictures on the computer.  No crisp clear shots this year. :(

Benjamin was up next.  Yep, he knew this one was going to get all over him!  Tee-Hee!

The pitcher and the lazy catcher.  She knew better than to try and catch those!


Dad takes a swing at them too...thank goodness I'm just the cameraman.  Although I have hit my share and taken one for the team many times throughout the years!

The aftermath of a great time.  The whole yard pretty much looked like this!

Clean up crew trying to convince the catcher to get up off some of the smashed pumpkins.  Her was tired, baseball is hard work for old girls.
