We signed Ty up this season for a great program that helps support the local high school baseball team. They pair the players up with a few kids and it allows them to learn about each other and the younger players get to participate in some on field activities at home games. According to the coach, some of the current high school players were once Tiger cubs themselves.
Last night we went to our first game for the Stony Point Tigers and Ty wore his special shirt that gets him into the games and recognizes his status. Our player is Matt, a junior, who wears #17. He stood with Ty and the other kids along the 3rd base line while the national anthem played before the game. He told Matt all about his t-ball team and how well he has been playing this season.
Ty then joined me back in the stands. We stayed for a few innings and munched on hot dogs on a nice warm Texas spring evening.

For those of our readers who live around Austin, or venture to our city for SXSW, you know where this place is in the photo. It may move slightly around the convention center, but the pile of Legos is a staple of the SXSWi conference.
We had a late afternoon flight for our trip to Scottsdale on Spring Break, so I surprised Ty with a visit downtown to this notorious spot. We spent almost an hour where Ty made several creations and added them to the display window which features random works of art created by passing attendees.
It was a gorgeous day in Austin that afternoon and we followed it up with dining alfresco at the downtown burger stand just across from the ACC.
Legos, burgers and thousands of nerds. Keep Austin Weird!

Spring has arrived in Texas and it's time for baseball. Ty joins back up into the Round Rock Youth Baseball League as a member of the powerhouse 6U Astros. He is very excited that one of his classmates is on the team.
These were shot at the opening ceremonies held recently.

Ty and his friend Josh had some fun experimenting with sponge capsules recently. The giggled as the little capsules slowly popped open to reveal space themed tiny sponges. Later we stuck them all up on the mirror where they remain as part of his decor now.

Our poor little hero was home from school today. He caught a 24 hour stomach virus going around school. Dad stayed home with him and gradually got him back to the energetic and happy little six year old we all know and love.
This shot was snapped midday before lunch as Ty crashed on the couch while I worked nearby on my laptop.
