Y'all ready for this? Said in my best announcer voice with loud music blaring in the background.
Friday was the big game...my daughter Megan's kickball party (that had been planned as an end of Summer party but had to be rescheduled at the very last minute)
The two teams, The Neville Kickbottoms
and The Spongebob Kickpants played a good game but in the end only one team could be the victor
Congratulations Team Kickpants!
I love the signs that one of the cute moms made for both teams - thanks Shauna! Shauna is the one that drew who knows how many dark marks on the arms of the teenagers when we were in line for Harry Potter.
There was some fine athleticism displayed ...
amazing form - Megan has never looked so athletic
a sense of fashion even in the heat of competition
a fierce competitive attitude
the thrill of victory
the agony of defeat - "What? I'm totally safe."
It turned out to be a great evening and we're glad so many kids could join in on the fun. But the night didn't end with the game - there were celebrations to be had.
Any good game ends with a parent tunnel
Before leaving the field The Spongebob Kickpants picked up their winners trophy...
You weren't aware that there was a Kickball Championship Trophy were you? Amazing what a $4 lamp from Goodwill, styrofoam and paint will make, huh? Since no one person could take the trophy home because I'm holding on to that baby for next years rematch, I put together individual awards for each person on the winning team that they picked up once back at our house where the festivities continued.
They each received a mini trophy with a giant gumball kickball on top as well as a medal. The "kickballs" were a hit and it was hilarious watching the kids try to chew them.
After all the competition on the field the kids were hungry. There were lots of tacos and burritos consumed
and lots of this...
I'm not sure what it is but the teenagers have a love affair with this slightly thick, processed, yellow goodness.
Whenever we serve it (which is nearly every time we have teenagers over) They surround the stuff, each trying to get their fair share and you can bet they will be back for seconds, thirds and fourths.
Here's to making this a yearly event - cheese and all!
