The first night we got there it was Catcher's first game of the championship. And his team almost lost--it was seriously a close one. They hadn't lost one game the whole season and it was down to the wire. It was tense. Craig was the coach of Catcher's team so we were all a bit more invested than usual. After winning that game they played awesome. Heidi and I were still on edge each second, especially when Catcher was pitching (he was awesome BTW). We wouldn't let any of the other kiddos bug us and we were nervous wrecks, but after they won game two we were in a pretty good mood and had all weekend to rest until the last game. I took some pics of Catcher. Of course it embarrassed him a bit, but I didn't care.
So Catcher and Craig's team won the game and the championship! It was amazing. It was such a fun night to be a Gummow. I was really impressed with how Craig coached his team for the win. And of course I was so proud of my sweet Catcher for being awesome and such a humble kid. Everyone was so excited.
On a side note the last Wyn game we went to it was 47 degrees out and I was FREEZING!! It was also crazy because one of the elders that served in my mission has a daughter on the team and after the third game I finally realized why he looked familiar. Of course when I asked him his name I wasn't surprised I was right. He claimed to remember me, but I am not so sure...
Cy plays an awesome 1st base and had some amazing hits while we were there. He moved up in batting order because he did so well. Again, we were so proud, but his games were also a lot less stressful. Thank heavens!
I had a long list of must dos while we were there, mostly food related. And although we didn't make it to Yellowstone or the sand dunes...because it got crazy cold...and well...all the baseball...we did manage to eat at all my favorite establishments and even try out some new ones. So all in all the trip was a raging success.
We love our Gummows and it is not that fun to have to get used to life without them after our time is over. We are so lucky to have them in our lives, and since they are pretty popular, we will take what we can get--it is never enough, but still always awesome.
