The Minnesota Twins are really good!

Our Little League life is in full swing (he he)! Ryan is on the Minnesota Twin team this year and he is having a blast playing baseball. If you're looking for us , chances are we're at the ball fields. I honestly can't imagine playing more than one sport at a time...whoa!
Doesn't He seem far too big in this picture?

We had some very rowdy fans for the first game but Ryan loved that all his Purdy cousins were here to cheer him on.

This is a dangerous but awfully cute 4-pack


Honey and her grandbabies

Grandma and Grandpa. Norma and Jim have spent many, many hours out on these very same ball fields watching Mark play baseball. I really love that He gets to play on the same fields that we all played on growing up. (That's right...I played softball here too:-))

Ryan's first at bat

And he hit a AWESOME line drive!

Props from dad

Ally runs and runs and runs a the games. This picture cracks me up because it gives you a really good glimpse of a typical game. Mark helping coach, Jim and GP watching from the cheap seats, Ally running, and Lila trying her best to keep up. Ahhh, such fun memories.

Way to go #5

We are all very proud of you this year. Ally loves wearing her game shirt and hat just like her brother Ryan. She adores him.

The 'Good Game' lineup and hand clap. Wouldn't life be great if after each day we all gave each other a 'good game' hand clap? I think so.

Ryan I love watching you grow and learn new things. Thanks for always trying your best and being respectful of the other players and coaches. You are doing a great job!
