After being pumped up from winning there City tournament, Cassie's team was ready to take State. I was a hard tournament though - two to three games a day in the hot hot sun. They ended up losing one game there first day. Then winning three games there second day. When the third day came around I just think they were pooped but they were ready to try. To win the tournament they had to play and win four games. There first game was scoreless until the end and the other team had the home field advantage. Away the Lions ended there season in Fourth place in the State tournament. They should all be proud of them selves.
Cassie's softball team won there City Tournament on July 2, 2008.
She was soooooo happy. She smiled from ear to ear for days.
They were the underdogs of the tournament. They had only finish 4 in there division and were not expected to go that far in the tournament. Cassie was so excited that she was going to be in the Spanish Fork paper.
This is her team after putting on there championship shirts the City gave them.
Jeri took some family pictures of us. We went to the edge of the mountain to see in the spotting scope. Jeri left the edge before I could take a picture of her.
I love those little white flowers by Cassie. Got Jason with his eyes closed but he wouldn't go back to the edge to take another picture. Here are the Mountain Goats we where looking at through the spotting scope.
It was really cool.
On Friday we did a mile hike to a water fall. The hike to stand by the fall was steep so only a few people went down there. If you click on this picture you can see Riley and Jason by the water fall. It shows how big the fall really is. (Red hat Jason - Blue hat Riley)
This picture I zoomed in as much has I could. You can see the boys better. This is as close as Cassie and I got but it was still beautiful.
The equipment we saw was cool. It was like an outdoor museum.
Jason meet up with us after riding his 4 wheeler.
It was really neat to see the old buildings. We took a little walk with the kids to see the old mining equipment they had there.
I don't know how it happened by the only pictures I have of Jason playing baseball this year are terrible. These two are the only ones I could get to look halfway visible. Well here is my beautiful boy Jason Scott Strong with his team.
Well I decided that while I was working on myfamily.com web page starting at the beginning of our family, I should keep the present documented too. I'm hoping to work on both sites so keep checking back. The myfamily website takes a little longer because I have to scan the pictures in. (I must be old....I have pictures from 35mm film..........hahaha!)
