#5

I found this in my shed when I was cleaning it earlier and hung it on the door. It happens to be our house number, but it is more than that- it's a memory.
A memory of when the kids were little, and we had a ball field carved out of a corner of the hay field.
See the scoreboard over to the right? That's where the 5 came from. We ended up with that and the canvas for the backstop when the Little League updated their field. It was a lot of fun when we had friends over and played softball, both adults and kids. 

I wish I had gotten second base lined up with the pitcher's 'mound' in the picture, but more than that, I am just glad to have this photo at all. Even if it has no people in it, I can still see the players.

That sounds like a lot of fun, and like it created some really special memories for you and your children! Cool! :)
