Sam's flag football birthday party
2014-01-27 Sam's 9th flag football party
Peeking at the cake - I have three very excited boys with me at the market picking it up.
Wow! Awesome job, T&C Market!
Cupcakes, too, in case we are overrun with "12th man" fans!
Seahawks rings on them, too!
My friend Annie, whose son, Nate, is the ref for us this afternoon. We are expecting about 10 guys to show up for a flag football game/party.
Me trying to make even teams. Good luck with that!
There's Nate, our ref! That is masking tape on his shirt to make it look like a ref's shirt!
That's Sam's school.
Talking to the team captains before the coin toss.
Nate REALLY had his hands full!
I had a roster made up in advance in consultation with Sam and our neighbor/friend Kai. We thought we had it pretty well divided up...until 10 additional guys showed up!
Ok! No problem!
Dave catching the ball - he drove STRAIGHT from work to be there.
We had one girl come! Man, I really wanted to play, too, but I was proud to have Ellie stand in for me.
Nate is in 5th grade.
Putting flags on many of the boys.
Ian is another neighbor and friend, in light green. He's a big swimmer, but came out to support us. So nice! He's in 5th, too.
And some cheerleaders! Thanks, Maddie!!!
I desperately wanted to play but didn't get drafted, dang it! I was the team medic I guess.
Luke has the ball right now.
Dave looks like Secret Service or something :)
Sam says he was unhappy with a call in this shot!
It's cake time, now.
Someone in this picture, who shall remain nameless, told folks that the whole school was invited. Nice! We had JUST enough cupcakes and cake to go around!
Sam has just squirted some of his buddies with Capri Sun juice!
Happy Birthday to you!
Sam blew candle smoke right up Nate's nose the first time! So funny!
Let's try that again!
I am about to get mobbed!
Kids were pounding on my rear end (literally) asking for cake and cupcakes! It was bedlam!
Ben and his buddy, Eli.
Dave is not liking that I only brought plastic knives to cut this massive football.
Nice birthday jersey, buddy! Go Hawks!
