July 3-7, 2014
We had a Diamond Dawg reunion tournament in Reno, Nevada. It was the most fun trip! We had all been looking forward to it for months! We spent July 4th playing in the tournament in the morning and afternoon. That night we went to dinner and then we watched fireworks from our hotel. We stayed at the Nuggett Casino. Thousands of people came there to watch the firework show. There were food and craft vendors in the back of our hotel. It was the place to be!
The boys got together from all the different high schools that they go to now and had a blast playing together again.
They played great but ended up only taking 3rd place in the tournament.
Kiera Hamblin and Molly had the best time gathering pine cones and trying to sell them for a penny each. They only sold one......... but they were happy just to be playing together again.
The setting for the ball fields was so spectacular! The pine trees were giant!
Coach Brook Christensen wasn't able to attend the tournament so Craig Callister coached 1st base.
We all went down to the lake on the North side and played in the water for the rest of the day. That lake is so beautiful! The water is amazing in color.
Vicky Ashcraft drove up from Roseville, CA to watch the games. Her home is only about 1 & 1/2 hours away. It was so fun to spend some time with her. Cade still thinks she's the coolest ever!
All the kids were on the hunt for crawdads.
The kids spent most of their time jumping into the lake from these rocks.

My niece Katelyn and her friend Kristen Young came along to watch the games. Everyone had a blast!
