June 2021 - Softball Champions

Alexa and Tyler started their first season of softball and baseball so it has been fun to spend summer evenings at the ball field.  Alexa's team won the Lehi City tournament so they will go to State in July.  We've also played baseball together as a family at the neighborhood park a few times.  It doesn't get better than a 3 year old on 2nd base while a 5 year old is up to bat, with a baby in the outfield eating loose baseballs.
