T-Ball ends and we escape the heat.

 
By Mike at August 9, 2012 - 21:23

We just got back from a two week vacation to northern Minnesota. It was well worth the 1000 mile drive to escape the 110+ degree heat here in Oklahoma. We had a nice "Bockus Compound" where my fam, my bro's fam, and my parents all stayed in two cabins on a single lot. Fun family times were had.

Before we went to MN, Beau wrapped up his first t-ball season. Beau takes after his dad when it comes to tball skills. He can hit the ball pretty good, but man does he run sloooow. He didn't get tagged out all season, and he only got hit in the face with the ball one time. I think he liked tball a lot more than soccer. His favorite part was playing second base and distracting batters with poop, pee, and fart jokes so that they forgot to run when the ball was hit. It was actually a pretty good defensive strategy... Here are a few pics and a video of his last at bat.

Keeping his eye on the ball!

Ruuuuun Beau!

The 1000 mile drive to MN wasn't as bad as I anticipated. We hooked up the zombification devices for the boys and they watched the same four Max and Ruby shows about 30 times. They actually got to the point where they knew all the words, and now they'll act out the shows sometimes. It's pretty creepy. Once we got to MN the boys and fam were in for some nonstop action for two weeks.

They didn't always put on their bathing suits before getting in the lake...

Enjoying the lake while we catch massive fish.

Eli loved him some crawdad fishing.

We played the most difficult mini golf course I'm aware of. Eli was so sad when the last hole ate his ball. He's asked me about fifty times since then if we can play mini golf for his birthday this year.

Daddio was the cribbage champion this year. It wasn't even close.

Charlene showing us her mad backflip skills.

Nana loves her some grandbabies!

Eli got a very inappropriate corn dog at the blueberry festival...

Go get it nash!

Regina Bockus showed us how not to ski.

Gordon loves to give Nana a good massage... especially when she doesn't want one so she gets all tense. Then we make her say the alphabet before he'll stop. It's my new favorite Minnesota activity.

We had a really good time this year. The boys are already asking about when we get to go back. There are a lot more photos of the MN action in the July 2012 album.
