Saturday, we had the Opening Day parade for Henry's liitle league team. He again was so excited. It wasn't like their were marching bands or floats, they just lined the kids up by team and had them walk into the baseball field.
You know what though, he didn't care, because why, they got to run the bases. Seriously, that is all that matters. They marched in, stood and had a team picture, gave high fives and then there it was time to run the bases while the older kids cheered them on. It was the cutest thing.
Look for #8 in the video.
After they ran and got into place they sang the national anthem and did the little league pledge, gave out some awards and we were done. It was a lot of standing for the little ones, but they were all troopers. Here are some pictures.
How cute are these kids! That second picture he looks like a baseball player. He wanted to wear the wrist bands so he could wipe the sweat off of his face. Killed me.
All in all we all had fun and it was a good experience for Henry. We certainly will never forget his first opening day.
