saturday afternoon, we were invaded by LOTS of dapelos! uncle bear, mimi and lots of ‘kids’ showed up for a yummy bbq, some swimming, and street baseball.
but first some of the kids had to pose in their ‘matchie’ shirts that gramma and papa brought back from australia. being ‘matchie’ was a VERY big deal. uncle david got to practice his very favorite hobby: sleeping with babies.we ate wonderful food outside in the ‘new’ backyard. everyone ate big marshmallows for dessert! (after the big kids made fools of themselves trying to throw them into each other’s mouths across the yard.and then there was more swimming…and then, the long-awaited street baseball! after some confusion about appropriately-sized plastic bats, the big kids and little kids hit whiffle balls all over the neighborhood! a lot of the balls didn’t survive, but all of ted’s sprinklers did!
