Rangers Mini Camp Day 2 & the Zoo

Today was day 2 of camp! They focused on fielding!! Grounders and pop-ups!

After a little on field coaching and instruction, it was time to put it into action! Up first was taking ground balls! This was pretty cute to watch! This was Lane's first real time taking grounders!

After several rounds the boys helped out the coaches a bit!

Next up was taking pop ups! Stefanie, Paul, and I just had to laugh at the thought of our boys trying to catch pop-ups! They tried though!!

Game Time!! The last hour they played a game! It was precious!!! Each player batted around and then switched! Here is a glimpse of Lane's new bag!

I love love love this sweet picture of my big boy carrying his baseball bag! He looks so big here and is having the time of his life!!

Another of my favorite pics! All their sweet little bats...ready to go!

Lane batted second!

He hit it on the first pitch!!

Lane played first when they were fielding! We need to work a little on what to do when the ball is hit to you...he always tried to field it instead of going to first, ha!

Batting again

This is his group with his coach! Fun times!

Paul took a couple of days off this week to be able to go to Lane's camp, so we also decided to take advantage and have some family fun! After camp we grabbed lunch, then headed over to the zoo! It was hot, however there was no one there!! It was practically empty and we loved it!

There was a baby monkey that the boys played with! Levi kept calling every animal "dog dog"!!

Feeding the birds

Paul tried to let Levi hold the stick, but he immediately tried to eat it!

The huge alligator was swimming right by the glass, so I got some good shots of him!

Lane was all about the snakes today!

We had a fun day at the zoo! I love being with my three boys! Day three coming up!
