This shot above is the rec center where Brennen plays on his basketball league. It's a gorgeous park - as all the parks here in Southwest Florida are. The parks here in Florida put our parks in Indiana to shame. It's really embarrassing when you compare the two. The Indiana parks and rec peeps could really take some advice from Florida's head honcho's. That is fo' sho'! This shot just happened to be of the entrance into the rec center. It's just a small snippet of the beauty to behold at this particular location. Either way, thought I'd do a quick blog about his game Saturday...

Yeap, here is the stud-man himself exuding frustration at one point in the game - those long eyelashes and all...

Here is the gym inside the rec center. They also have a massive fitness center inside this same building with a phenomenal day care that looks like a school. It's amazing. Awesome facility to say the least.

Just a simple shot of the basket I kept seeing while down on the floor. Yeap, I'm that Mom who sits at the end of the court and takes pictures the whole game - sprawling out across the floor when necessary...

Like for this shoe shot below. Look how dusty and dirty that floor is though. GAG! Can you guess which tennies are Brennen's?

If you guessed the third set of tennies from the left, then you are correct. He is sitting next to the kid with the white tennis shoes on - with his hands together.

This next shot was just of a little girl sitting on the folded up bleachers. I saw her feet dangling with the flip flops on and thought it was a cute shot...

Here was a fun succession of shots I took during one of the baskets made for Brennen's team...

SWOOSHHHHH...nothin' but net...!

Here is another one of those moments when I got down on the floor - that dirty filthy basketball shoe wearin' floor - in front of all the other parents watching me make a fool of myself - and captured this shot of all the boys running. They have two girls on their team (it's a co-ed rec league here) and I loved the pink converse that were proudly displayed in this shot along with all of the other "boyish" tennis shoes.

Here is their team with their coach. You can see Brennen dead center - peeking thru...

And for those of you wondering if they won or was the final score.

We were the HOME team! YAY!

It was a great game that stayed neck and neck - about 1 point apart - the whole game. (until the end when our team landed a few extras) We love his coach - he's a great guy. Brennen starts football this week as well. It's a spring league. His basketball and football will overlap with one another for the next couple of weeks. He's going to be a tired boy I'm sure. On Mondays for the next few weeks he'll have basketball and football practice - on the same night. It was a fluke thing due to being in two different leagues. However, we are going to play it by ear and see how he can handle it. In the meantime, I am just as anxious to get back out on the football sidelines as he is. LOL!

I'm off to go enjoy the sunny and blissful 76 degree weather here in Naples, Florida today. It has been in the sixties all week so yesterday and today were a great change. Looking forward to a weeks worth of warm temps now that the cold front is gone again. "There is something about the sunshine baby..." (that is a Disney song for those who don't know. It's playing on the movie Starstruck as I type. Catchy little tune if you ask me) Enjoy your week everyone. xoxo, Angie

That is one beautiful rec center! I loved seeing the pictures of Brennan's game. I hope he's made some nice friends on his team.

Does Kenidi go with you to the games? Vivian HATES Will's hockey games (too cold and too loud), though we've had some good success lately with noise-reducing headphones and videos on her iPod touch. She also does better if she can sit in her stroller; I think it's familiar and makes her feel secure. Did Kenidi's stroller arrive yet?

I was THRILLED to hear that Kenidi's new school is working out so well and that you are successfully assembling a new team of doctors and therapists. Keep me posted if anyone has any new "insight." I need to look into equestrian therapy for Vivian. I think she might enjoy that.

Sorry for the lengthy comment. Hugs to all.

What fun! You got some great shots with different perspective. What lens did you use? A little jealous of the 76 weather, btw.

Ironically, YES...Kenidi's stroller arrived at our front door step today. It's so funny that you asked about it because I planned on coming over here to thank you for turning me onto the idea of asking my doctors to submit something to insurance and get one ordered. It took three months almost to the day but insurance paid for every bit of it. God is good! It's a big mamma jamma but it is so much nicer not having her feet drag the ground or her outweigh a typical stroller. They talked me into a stroller called a CONVAID (in purple). It's a bit big for Kenidi right now but at least she'll be able to grow into it. I plan to do a blog post about it soon so you'll see photos then.

As for the horse therapy for Vivian...Oh yes...I highly recommend it. She would love it - I'm sure. Normally Kenidi is so rough and hyper but with the horses, she is as calm as can be - like a totally different child. I blogged about her and the horses last night. The post should publish here on my blog at 6pm tonight. It has pictures you can see of that too. Look around and see if there is something similar by your for Vivian. All of the kiddo's seem to love it. :)

And no...most games of Brennen's Kenidi actually stays home. We've tried to take her but she wants to climb the bleacher railings and never sits still. She loves being there but is just so hyper and can't stay seated. We tried taking turns by taking her outdoors and walking her during the games but she just runs off and we spend most of our time chasing her. (which wears Brent and I out) For instance I'm at Brennen's football practice right now and I left Kenidi with my Mom because Brent is still at the office. It's good catch up/reading time for me. :) God love her!

Anywho, keep in touch. And thanks again for the direction and info regarding the stroller. I am soooo appreciative. I would've never thought this was a possibility without your guidance.

Huge hugs!

Thanks girl. I used my 70-300mm lens for most of those basketball net shots. Zoomed in real tight and shot them. As for the actual shots of the whole gym, I used my 12-24mm wide angle lens. Hope this helps!

Blessings, Angie
