Boys playing baseball

Seth had the other week off work. The whole week! It was such a novelty for Caleb and I to be able to spend that much time with him without work, revision or study getting in the way.

On Monday, Lin, Steve and the gingers headed down our way and we went to a batting cage in Harrow for Seth and Steve to play. I'm pretty sure there aren't actually that many batting cages in the country what with baseball really not being a big sport here so we're quite lucky to have one not too far away from us. The last time that Seth and Steve went there was over two years ago as I was still pregnant with Caleb, so it was really lovely for them to be able to do it again. Steve and Seth are two of a kind; they don't really love doing the whole socialising thing that much but they just get on so well with each other, which I'm very pleased about! While they played, the rest of us had a lovely picnic and Lin and I chatted lots while Sam and Cait were running around after Caleb. Seriously, they are such good little babysitters, they are just amazing with Caleb and he adores them and follows everywhere they go!

When we had finished there, we went to see my Dad's aunt (who has always just been Grandmother to us as she was pretty much a mother to him when he came to England) and his cousin, Sylvie. I can't even remember the last time I saw them, but I know it was definitely more than 5 years ago as I wasn't married to Seth and I'm pretty sure we may not have even been dating at that point! Grandmother isn't in the best of health at all so I am really glad that Seth and Caleb were able to meet her.

Once again, Sam and Cait were stars when it came to looking after Caleb and they were playing with him the whole time which allowed me to just be able to spend time with Grandmother. It was such a fun day.

  1. This is a lovely blog my Kirsty as always. The photos are brilliant and shows what a lovey time you all had together.

  2. Oh my gosh! Yay! I'm so glad you had a whole week together!! That sounds amazing! I love that you made the most of it :)
    Also, you look SO great!!

  3. Batting practice isn't just for honing one's craft, but it could also be used to foster relationships, such as what Steve and Seth did. And you also got to hang out while they took some swings. You even got to visit the family once you were done. Now that is one off-day well spent! Take care!
