Baseball (said like James Earl Jones in Field of Dreams...)

On Saturday Vance had his first baseball game. To say he was excited would be an understatement. EXCITED!!! would be more like it.

While at Hobby Lobby searching for something extremely different beforehand, I found blank rally fingers. I didn't know these existed.

I drew everything onto clear contact paper and then used an exact knife to cut them out. 

I was going to use acrylic paint but couldn't find my white in the mass of unpacked boxes, so I just used white house paint. The contact paper doesn't really stick to the foam so I had to take it slow around the edges but it worked fine.  

I think it turned out cute!

Game Time! 

First at bat

On base

Vance had been waiting for this for so long. It was great to finally get to see him play. Another 'first' for him down! 

We had a great weekend. Hope you did too!
