This Baseball game was a Hit! (in more ways than one)

Last evening we attended a Lancaster Barnstormers game...the only game we will attend this season. It was a special night for cheerleaders. UDS Cheering, Ellen's group, was honored at the game. Enjoy some pictures of this wonderful evening.


It was a beautiful evening!


Elizabeth and her mom go meet the rest our of girls in the stands.
All the teams did a parade around the field before the game.



There they go!!
Our special girls ♥



Everyone got to do a cheer...
our girls did two cheers!
The group that helps our girls came too.




This fellow always makes the game fun!
He danced and wiggled as the girls did their cheers.



Ellen and her helper get some instruction......



She goes out on the field
because....



She threw a First Pitch!!
I didn't get a picture of her throwing,
she got out there and threw it right away!
Guess she wanted to get it over with =)



Heading off the field to join the team for the National Anthem.



Our Flag and the 
National Anthem
gives me chills every time!



Back to the stands
with the ball!!
Some of the Barnstormer's players are coming to the Challenger Football game on Saturday.
Ellen hopes to get her baseball signed.



Look who came to the game...
Carson ♥
First time for Aunt Nancy to see him.
Aunt Kimmy loves holding a baby!


Yes, we watched some ball =)


There were several of these by our favorite team!
They won ☺


Ellen's friend Nicole and her mom share some ice cream.
Elizabeth and her mom enjoying the look of it!

Cylo came to visit us.....

Ellen loves him!



Cylo loves Carson!



I continue to hold Carson and snap pictures.....

What happened next could have been a lot worse.

I heard a 
'Watch Out"
or something of the sort.
Turned slightly...
a ball hit the top of my shoulder.

It hit ME
and NOT Carson!!

The ball hit the roof above us and dropped down right where I was standing.

Whew. 
The Angels were watching out for us, for sure.
It didn't hit me on the head.
It didn't hit Carson at all.

I have a sore spot that hurts if it's touched
and I feel it with arm movement.

It could have been so much worse.

Thank you, Lancaster Barnstormers for giving an evening to honor our special girls! Our Girl has a night she will remember forever. Carson has a baseball with a story to be told when he is older.

What a special game for Ellen and her friends. So sorry about your shoulder but I, too, am thankful it was not worse. Hard to believe Carson can sleep thru a game!

Oh what a fun time, love the pictures! Ellen is just a DOLL! OH MY, close call! I am thankful that the ball didn't hit the baby! Hope your shoulder heals quickly! Sending HUGS your way dear friend, enjoy your weekend!

How frightening to have a ball hit you and especially when holding baby Carson. Thanking Jesus for his protection.

Nothing better than family and a ball game. Looks like ya'll had a blast. I miss that! We were at the field every night when my kids were growing up. Miss it miss it but hope not to miss my grandson's games when he gets old enough. We're gonna do it all over again.
