Have I mentioned that Chase is no longer a skateboarder dude? He is now a sports guy!   For the past few years, he has been obsessed with everything skater-boarder/snow-boarder... from his clothes to his hobbies, he was all about the boarding. 


At some point this spring/summer, he changed.  He won't wear any of his Tony Hawk clothing (I'm regretting buying up all the skater clothes I could get my hands on at the end of last summer!)  He's now into Nike and Adidas and even golf shirts and shorts.   Don't get me wrong, I'm liking the change.  I just wish I didn't have a closet full of clothes that he won't wear!

And he has been gravitating towards playing sports.  He wants to dabble in just about everything.    I signed him up for flag football and baseball and floor hockey this summer and even football for the fall.  Yikes. 

So, we are keeping busy with all the sports. But, it's good for him. 


We went to a Brewer's Game (YES, weeks ago!)  that I just finally got around to editing the pictures for. 

We were there for a corporate party for one's of Dave's venders, so we got to go to the practice field first and play around.

It was hot, and I caught Chase cooling off in the dug-out.  Doesn't he look so cute?  (Don't tell him I said that!)


We enjoyed the game, until Dylan conked out.  He dozed off in the middle of the game!
And speaking of Dylan, he isn't showing much interest in sports... yet!
Unless you count a little floor hockey, in the driveway, wearing a race car driver suit and flip-flops! 
That kid cracks me up!

Wow, our lives are similar! I'm getting set to post about my Dylan's new sports themed bedroom and also about t-ball. Your little guys are so handsome. I hope you are ready for the onslaught of girls calling in a few years. Okay, maybe more than a few... if you're lucky! :)

I think sports are great for kids! My boys love soccer and I am sure they will get into other sports as they get older.

Boy am I gla my boys are not opinionated about their clothes- yet!

They are so cute! We just made a trip to the Nike outlet store as we left the beach. My boys were in heaven! Glad you were able to make a Brewer's game. My sister is coming south this summer, so we will not be making the trip north for a few more months.

Such lovely boys! One good thing about this, though, is that Chase is now becoming self-assured and particular with what he likes. I think he is lucky ‘cos some kids don’t get to decide entirely on their own about their wardrobe preference ‘til they’re teens. Plus, a sporty getup seems to fit him well. And sports itself is good for kids. :)
