What's better on a sunny Sunday....

...than a Little League Parade!!!

That's my sweet nephew's team, the Single-A Giants! That means not more t-ball. This is real Little League baseball now! ::sniff sniff:: He is growing up way too fast for this Auntie to handle!

My buddy is the little guy right in front of the coach. Our little peanut!

Don't let his size fool you, though. This kid loves to play ball. And he is AWESOME! He can really send that ball soaring when he hits it!

There he is...#4!

He was super close to where we were standing but they had the music blasting in between introductions. I gotta say our city really does it up great. They played a lot of rocking songs and it really got the crowd in to everything. And they even throw in "Sweet Caroline" and music from the Dropkick Murphy's, just like at Fenway Park!

Speaking of Fenway Park, what would a day of baseball be without Wally the Green Monster?!

The kids love it!!!

Seeing the happiness and joy on this little face makes it all worth it! Whether we are standing outside in the freezing cold or the blazing heat, waking up at the crack of dawn on a Sunday or rushing to the field after a long work day, HE is what it is all about!!!

And I am so lucky I get to be his Auntie!!!

{ and I am not ashamed to admit that I really do love the fact that I am his only Auntie! No sharing! ;-) }

I was going to respond to your size-ism post but it isn't here anymore! Regarding THAT... I am wondering if it is because of the time? Does Victoria Secret show lingerine during DWTS? I'm not sure... but you're right, its so wrong!!

Now about this post! Your nephew is such a cutie!! :) I love that they had a mascot!

Me too - I clicked on the size-ism post and I got J-Man.

J-Man is more adorable than ever!

Yeah, I totally screwed up. I wanted the post about the Little League parade for today and I scheduled the size-ism post for tomorrow. Somehow I screwed up and both came up today. But the size-ism post is ready and waiting for tomorrow! I wanted to post that on a weekday and hopefully get some good feedback and discussion going.

Great pics--your nephew is adorable! It's so fabulous being an auntie, isn't it?! I think it's awesome that they go all out like that to celebrate the little kid teams.

How cute! And yes, you are so lucky - I have to compete with two other aunts, both of whom live much closer to my nieces and nephew than I do.
