Kickball at the Park


Today we had a fun day at the park playing kickball with a huge group of friends. Well...Hector played and Santiago and I watched. It was a very nice day - a little overcast and not too hot. We were at a park in Houston and there were about 50 people gathered to play kickball. Hector's team wore camoflauge and so did we! Don't we look cute? Our friends Sean and Crystal organized it and they do this once in the fall and once in the spring every year and it was a lot of fun. The park had these huge trees so it was very shady and Santiago didn't cry once! Everyone was so impressed with how good he was and how cute he is - especially with his longhorn helmet on! We packed enough stuff in our car for an entire weekend trip but I was glad to be prepared. We brought blankets to lay on, the stroller, boppy pillow, playmat, fan to keep Santi cool, bouncer seat, and our stand up cooker that my dad gave Hector. The guys grilled hotdogs and hamburgers and we made a whole day out of it. The games started around noon and we left the park around 6 in the evening. Then we went to Crystal and Sean's for pizza and then headed home around 8:30. Santiago was tired once we got here so I fed him and put him right to bed. I hope he sleeps as well as he did last night. Last night was the first night he slept all the way through the night without me having to give him the pacifier or move him into my bed around 5 am. He slept from 9:15 pm - 7:30 am.

Here is how Santiago spent a lot of our afternoon:

These are the incredible trees that provided wonderful shade for us at the park. Mom and Dad I know you will appreciate these trees! They are beautiful!
