i am in party heaven
First I have to say I survived our big Little League opening day carnival and have been blissfully visiting many of your blogs today. Wow. I am truly impressed by the wonderful group of people who are out their blogging their little hearts out. I would really like to visit everyone, but with over 500 participants, the last time I checked, I am not sure I will have enough time. However, I am someone who is always up for a challenge. Perhaps I just wont sleep this week and instead I will party with all of you into the wee morning hours. I will let you know how that goes.

Here are a few pics of the parade and carnival. Now that it is over I will need to catch up on laundry and maybe clean a bathroom or two. I spent the last two weeks planning this event morning, noon and night so my family was a little neglected to say the least. I do have to brag on them a little though. I slept until noon (I was completely exhausted and coming down with a cold) and when I got up they had cleaned the entire down stairs. Floors had been moped, rooms had been vacuumed, clutter put away, etc. I love you all very much, you are the absolute best!!!

Here is our youngest son acting goofy with his team before going on the field for the parade.

Youngest son again. He loved being in the dunk tank. He is such an introvert I worry about him (not). Of course his two older brothers had to make sure they were the first ones to dunk him. After all, what are older brothers for?

Here was the biggest hit of the carnival. A 200 ft. long zip line. You had to climb up a ladder 25 feet, put on a harness, and then they would basically throw you off and you were zipped down this cord 200 feet to the ground. Unfortunately, every time my kids did it I wasn't around to snap a pic. Here is one of my daughters friends coming down the line.

We had a great time as a family and are looking forward to another great baseball season.

I will see you all at the party. Party on!

Wow, your boys look like they are having a ball, brought back memories of our growing up (my sister and I played softball and my brother played baseball so we were always at the fields).

thanks for the invite to your home/blog for the party, enjoyed myself...

I thought I would be able to zip through the party participants too, but there are so many of them! The carnival looked fun.
That was nice of them to help you clean! What a great surprise!

Oops, I forgot to answer your question! Yosemite all the way. It is by far my favorite place I've ever visited (This tops England, Scotland, Dominican Republic and the other National Parks I've been to). You cannot be disappointed. We actually went to Lake Tahoe after Yosemite and I was "let down" because Yosemite was just so beautiful.

Maybe you've already been since you are from Cal. My brother lives in Sacramento, BTW.

But my dream National Park would be to go to all the ones in Alaska.

Okay, gotta run!

Those are some great pics!! The zip line looks a little to scary for a wimp like me:) I'm glad your kids enjoyed it!

Hi! Thanks for visiting me! You must be really super busy! The carnival looks to real fun. The pictures are all great. We had a dunk tank at our church spring festival last year. Our pastors sat in it for a while. DH dunked them around three times I think.

Hi There! I am also a mom of five visiting through the blog party! We are about to start up baseball with our three boys. I can't wait!

Looks like you know how to plan a party, by the way...and what a blessing to find your downstairs cleaned up! What a great family you have!

I could have sworn I left a comment last time I was here. I think all this party blogging in the middle of the night has left me a little loopy! Oh my gosh, the carnival sounds like a blast! I would be all about the dunk tank too if I lived somewhere sunny. Fun, fun!

Also, I'm your prize winner! Yeah! Seriously never win anything so I'm shocked I got my #1 pick...Starbucks is my friend!!

You can email me at!

Take care!
