Birthday Cupcakes

These are the Cupcakes that I made for my son's class at school on his 9th Birthday. He also had his last Baseball game on his Birthday so I made a bunch to take to his Baseball Team. A total of 50 or so. I used the George and Basic Shapes for the 9's, (which are 2 sided by the way). Then used the Sweet Treats Cartridge for the Cupcake holders. I think they were a hit.

Sea World

I was so blessed to be able to accompany my daughter on her 5th grade field trip a couple weeks ago to Sea World. I haven't been there since I went in 5th grade. Each of the Chaperons were assigned students and then they were able to go and do whatever they wanted to do. I was chaperon over my daughter and a girl in her class named Serina.

I would have to say besides Shamu, my favorite exhibit was the Sharks. It was creepy and cool all at once. I surely wouldn't want to run into one of these monsters. If you've never been there or maybe haven't been there in a long time let me tell you how it is. You walk in and there are all these little sharks in water next to you. Not a big deal. But then you walk into a tunnel made of glass, well a clear material of some kind and there are big sharks swimming around everywhere. While it is neat to see them in there habitat it is creepy to think that if the glass broke, we are all goner's.

Shellsea's favorite part was strangly the stingrays. Ewwww, they are so slimy but she loved them. She spent probably a good 10 minutes just petting the slimy things.

This is the only picture I was able to get of Shellsea and I together. But how fitting it was in front of the stingray! It was alot of fun and I can't wait to take our whole family and spend at least a day. There was so much more that we did and saw but these were a couple of the highlights

This is Jaiden's 2nd year playing YBBL. He is a natural ball player. But coming from a long line of baseball players it's no surprise. This year he is the oldest on his team and in my opinion one of the best. This is an educated opinion by the way not a bias one because I'm his mom. He always gets on base. He hasn't struck out once. He really does a great job all around. This year we were really lucky that Dean could coach Jaiden's team. With Deans baseball experience, patience and all around love of the game it was a perfect match.
The kids in this level are ages 6-8yrs old. They don't use a pitcher but a pitching machine and they don't publicly take score. It's basically to teach the kids the fundamentals of the game and how to be a team. This season Jaiden started out playing 1st base where he did good for the most part. The usual ball that should've been caught, but good. The team needed a catcher and there are only a few kids that could really qualify for that position. They would need to be able to catch somewhat good and be able to throw oh and fit into the catchers gear. Yes, a couple of the boys are super tiny.

Jaiden asked to try the catching position and he liked it. Although he did get a bat thrown upside his head, he was fine that is what the gear is for. He likes the other positions too. Dean rotates the 3 boys that can do catcher. They take turns playing 1st, short stop and catcher. The season is almost over it ends the end of May. Stay tuned for Team and individual pictures.
