hey, a party!!!!!!

This year our baseball league did something new. We had a picnic (party!!!) at the City Pool.

A few of us board members wanted to give something back to the parents who pay every spring to have their kids in our league.
Just to show that they are getting something back for all the fund raising and signup fees that is donated. It helps that our league president is also on the City's Parks and Recreation board.
This makes it allot easier to close down the pool for a private party.

I was the 'official' griller. My grill has only once ever seen so many items on it at one time. I also used it to get out of a pickle that we were all in during the league's Chicken BBQ a few months ago.
A few of us had less time in the water than most due the work that needed to be done, but I really don't mind. Personally, I consider it my donation. Some people donate money, I choose to donate time, energy and a roll model to the kids.
Most of us, but not all, have the same philosophy.

Speaking of roll models, our league president was whistled at by a life guard for diving in a no diving pool. That was freakin' hilarious!

Anyway, here are some pics from our day. I hope you enjoy them.

See you later!

Ahhhh, a good old mullet. I miss home. Been in the Lehigh Valley for 10yrs now, but still consider the Susq Valley home!!!
Looks like a good time & that the kids had a blast.

Business in the front, party in the back! The good 'ol sho-lo. :D We have those in Texas too. I saw a doozy at the airport this last weekend. Makes me want to carry a pair of scissors in my purse.

Funny thing... I have literally been around the world twice, and I landed back here in stagnateville. Go figure....

I really need to preview my typing before I post. I look like a buffoon. Sorry!

I love the pool. My girlfriends and I used to just park ourselves there for the day...bottle of baby oil in hand (for a savage tan!)

I had a pool party 2 years ago for my nephew. Picked one of the last weekends in the summer thinking it would be steaming hot in the evening. HA! No such luck, it was chilly and only the kids were in the pool with blue lips.

Mullets...we have 'em here too, makes me cringe.

I could never stand just laying out by the pool and roasting in oil. Maybe that works in the PA summer, but not the TX summer. Too Hot!

My neighbor next door likes to lay out and tan himself all weekend. He pulls down his shorts and tans his butt. He is a little off, I believe.

*snort* Good thing I wasn't drinking or water would have come out of my nose. Does he just pull his shorts down to tan his butt, or does he sunbathe nude? I mean, I avoid tan lines, but this seems a little strange.
