As mentioned Saturday was Merrick's last baseball game. I won't go into details but Merrick had a really rough game on Thursday. As a mom, Saturday's game was really stressful for me because I needed the game to go well for Merrick almost as bad a he did. Luckily, he did great and had some really great hits, including a line drive out to the outfield. It was a great way to end the season. After the game we had a team party with cupcakes and trophies to wrap everything up.
The other highlight of the day was picking strawberries. We went to a new farm this year about 25 minutes away and picked a new variety of berry (Sweet Anne's). I think that they are the best strawberries I have ever had. We picked about 11 lbs and I intend to make jam, but we will see if they last long enough for me to do that.
