Christmas Day Part 2

 It is a Beckstrand tradition that Grandma and pa make a big breakfast for everyone so we got dressed and headed over there.   It is a wonderful tradition because you get to meet up with everyone again and hear what they got and not have to actually travel to anyone's houses.  At 11:30 we went to the Bloomington Baseball fields for the annual Wells Family Homerun Derby.  This year was a little different because all of the infields were either muddy or still covered with ice and snow or both.  JoEllen set up the new Volleyball set that Emily got for Christmas and the kids played with that for awhile then Spencer decided to have a kick ball game on the outfield grass.  It was so much fun.  The kids loved it.

 First Spencer and Mason had everyone line up and then they chose teams.  It was hilarious.  They picked one adult and kid each time. The teams ended up pretty even. Ben was MVP with all of his catches and David was a great pitcher.  I think that might become the new homerun derby.

James' face says it all.  He was also the only one to kick a HomeRun every time he got up.  I guess you have to pull that face for it to work.  I'm going to try that next time.

 OK, So check these next two pictures out.  You can totally see who Evan takes after.

 It's definitely not this guy.

                                                                       Nice catch!

 This was a picture of Mason after Spencer kicked it right at his head.

 Yep.  That's us.  Aren't we cool?  We sure know how to have fun!
