Pigeon Really Wants to Play Ball

Pigeon had his first big adventure of the summer this week when he went with us to Claire and Anna's last softball game of the season. He had a great time, but was sad that we didn't let him play. He tried to make himself useful by helping with the equipment, giving the girls and coaches softball advice, running the bases, and even arguing with umpire when a call didn't go our way.

Be sure to check back in a few weeks to see what pigeon is up to next!
