Emerson's birthday party

 Emerson's party theme was "GIANTS"...
as in, San Francisco Giants!
He was dressed for the occasion!
 Because another group was on the baseball field, 
we adapted and set up a field in another place.

 A bit later, after pizza, snacks, and a smaller game, the field came open!
 Kids vs. Adults!

 Some of the spectators!
 Walt was enjoying some watermelon with his Papa Greg and Sue!


 You definitely look like a 7 year old, Emerson!

 I love this picture!!!

 Emerson is not a fan of cake.  Last year at his birthday party, there was cake, but there was also an ice cream cake for him.  This year, he didn't want cake or cupcakes, but popsicles!  We couldn't put a candle in a popsicle, so we ate and sang!

The party was at a park, obviously!  When we got there, a group was playing on the baseball field. We told Emerson not to worry, there were other things we could do.  He really wanted to play baseball.  As soon as the group left, we stormed the field and took it over!

As per Emerson's request, it was kids vs. 'grown ups'.
The 'grown ups' made a bad impression right off the bat.
They were playing as if their opponents were also in their 30's!  
The 7 year olds started building their confidence and took over the game!
