Summer Bucket List Week 2: Park Discovery

Last week, we enjoyed some water fun

 The part of Austin we live in provides more parks than we could possibly discover and enjoy. However, one park we haven't visited before is the baseball park. After purchasing a tee ball starter kit for C, we headed to our local baseball field for a fun filled morning.


Connor loves playing bat and ball indoors so Mister and I were very excited to see what our little guy would do on the diamond. As soon as the tee was up, Connor went at it. We were pleasantly surprised by how quickly he picked up how to play.


 While Connor's form needs work, he had a blast hitting the ball from the tee. More importantly, the little guy has more heart than he knows what to do with. From batting, to running the bases to fielding fly balls, he was in little boy Heaven. 





Our summer has started off with a hit! I can't wait to see what we will do to make this summer one to remember. 
Happy Friday!

    1. He had the best time. It's safe to say he was wore out and napped so well after a few innings.

  3. This is something I am glad I read because it gave me the idea to buy my girl(s) a tee ball set! Not having a boy you don't think of a t ball set but I know they will have fun or at least in my mind they will have fun.

  4. "Our summer started off with a hit." I see what you did there. :)
    Where did you get that TBall set? The only ones I've seen look so cheap, and that one looks legit!

    1. You liked that... sometimes I can be oh so clever.
      We got it at our local sporting good store. It's called Academy but I think you could pick it up online or at your local store.

  5. Oh my gosh. This is TOO CUTE. My husband CANNOT WAIT until Mason is old enough to play tee ball. If I remember correctly, I think Connor is just a little older than Mason (he'll be 2 in July), so maybe it's time to start! And same question as Desiree, where did you get that tee ball set??

    1. Actually, Mason is older than Connor. Connor will be 2 in October.

  6. oh this is the cutest! I've always loved little boys and baseball, in the completely non creepy way...just to clarify. Random question, but you can just pop over to a baseball diamond and hang out? is that a thing?

    1. We live 10 minutes from the youth fields... there are 10-15 diamonds total and we just picked one that wasn't being used and played around for a while.

    1. That's what we thought. I'm so glad James had the idea. We plan to go back in a couple weeks for some more fun.
