Our new baseball field at home!

My parents spent the last 12 days visiting us. Jeff, the kids and I really enjoyed the time we got to spend with them. They were able to attend 7 of Ryan's baseball games and even got to see him win his trophy in the tournament the first weekend of their visit. Since baseball has taken over our life now, Ryan and Jeff have had visions of expanding their baseball playing area at our house. We have 13 acres, so a field of dreams is a BIG possibility in the future. For now however, my dad came up with this lil' gem! He used an old four sided dog kennel we had taken apart. The dog kennel was for a puppy we had a few years ago that didn't work out so well. It had been sitting back by one of our fences in pieces. By using the fence and some posts, my dad and Jeff were able to construct a really neat backstop for Ryan. They even fashioned the gate on the dog pen so it can be used to enter the ballfield! The gate is the part Allie likes the best. Allie could just walk around the backstop/fence to bat, but she prefers to go through the gate!

Wow! That's awesome! What a blessing that you have so much land to do such a thing and that the kids have a grandpa (and grandma) willing to help out like that!
