Pictures at the Park

Rinsing our feet off in the Raritan River.
I am just as tall as Lauren!!

Throwing rocks. There were plenty of them.
When I'm not "looking" they're holding hands.
Pretty summer day.

Me and my littlest billy goat

This week, Chez Stoll

It was Alec's birthday, and we took a (very short!) trip to TD Bank Ballpark to watch the Somerset Patriots. We're always up for a good minor league game. We had dinner at the park, plenty of treats, and watched the Patriots succumb to the York Revolution.
It was bat night. The girls were psyched, and nearly gave both of us black eyes swinging the darn bats. They went to Alec's office, where his coworkers will likely injure each other with them.
Lindsay got to bring her friend Mackenzie to gymnastics. They had fun. Mackenzie navigates the balance beam in reverse, with some help from Miss Allie. Lindsay tries to wait her turn.
My baby geese are gawky teens. Swimming in the Raritan.
Lindsay's class presented a musical version of the "Three Billy Goats Gruff". Lindsay is the little goat wearing red boots.

Mercer County Park

Movie night! We girlies watched Tangled together on Friday night - a birthday present for Lindsay from a friend of hers. Lauren commented that it would really be a problem if Rapunzel got head lice. Ewww.
We had a tournament in Plainsboro over the weekend (yeah, near where Dr House works.) This was a climbing structure on the playground that the girls really liked. Here they are wearing their "away" uniforms. Lauren is next to the center support.
Lindsay enjoyed climbing also. A rare look for rockstar Linds, cotton dress and sneakers - you can tell she didn't dress herself.
More climbing with Chloe and Emily.
Lauren and her friend Daniella, this time in their "home" whites, relaxing between games on the bench. Mostly they were eating as many gummy bears as they could and trying not to get wet, as it drizzled a little before the second game was underway.

Besides the cute pics, we were outplayed in the tourney, but we were the only "new" team, and the only team below flight 2 (we were flight 6 of 6 this season). The girls were excited to get their first set of patches (you collect a team patch from every team you play in a tournament), and a medal for participating.
