June 14th and 15th Father's Day Weekend
Father's Day Invitational to Benefit Wounded Warrior Project Annual Lacrosse Tournament
Both kids teams playing in this tournament plus Scott's High School Girls, but at different locations in Palm Coast
Saturday started off early up at 6am out the door with coolers, tent, chairs, water, sunscreen, gear and excited people by 7am...
Skipping to the end of the day by rolling back into the garage around 10:30pm SUPER stinky, wet, tired and sleepy people...
In the middle of all that was a GREAT day of lacrosse! I didn't bring my camera this weekend thought I'd go foot loose and fancy free. I did get a few shots with my cell phone though.
The schedule was a bit hectic with the girls and boys playing at different locations. Scott and Chloe were able to watch Isaac's first game of the day. We had a nice treat with Grandpa and Grandma Marilyn now living in Florida and not far from these fields they came to watch Isaac for the day.
Game 1 Laxrats vs Tamp Fire (yes the team that ditched us the weekend before) they went down!
Laxrats Win 6-4
Game 2 Laxrats vs Red Stick
Laxrats Win 8-4
Game 3 Laxrats vs LCO
As we clean up our gear and head the 20 minute drive to the Girls Fields it's down pouring and lightning!
Chloe's 1st game was played with a 8-3 Win! Her 2nd game was on a rain delay...
Chloe's 4:20 game was played at 6pm and another WIN

After a very long day and a very wet afternoon/evening Chloe and Scott's teams were able to finish their games (even though they shortened the games a bit). Chloe's team WON all their games! Chloe had some goals and many assists. Scott's Varsity Team won all there's as well with a JV goalie (who Scott works with) she did GREAT!
Day 2 Father's Day!
Father's Day started a bit earlier waking at 5:20am and leaving the garage by 6am we had to drop Chloe and Scott at their location while Isaac and I went to his location. Kids were playing at the same times that day so no chance on us being at both places at once.
Both guaranteed 2 more games if they win the 2 they move onto the Championships! Isaac's team was to play Red Stick who they beat the day before, but with what happened the following weekend you never know if your dealing with the 'same' group of boys or not. We were this time around. Isaac played a great game and had a shut out which hasn't happened in quite some time so that was very exciting for him! He did go down after getting hit in the family jewels (thank you Lord for the NUTTY BUDDY) look it up!
Game 1 Laxrats vs Red Stick Laxrats Win 6-0
Game 2 Laxrats vs Gulf Coast Bandits Win 7-5 (I think)
Championship Game Laxrats vs Top Left Loggerheads Lose by ONE!
Yes, it's a big bummer! Isaac had some outstanding saves against these giants and had a GREAT time with his friends. Not a 'Win Win' but kinda felt like one!

(who won't be at their next tournament b/c he's getting married!)

Chloe won BOTH her games on Father's day and made it to Championships! BUT like brother lost... she called me and sounded over the moon excited about the game...she LOVED the competition of it all and was happy she played so well. Had goals and assists all day long!
On our way home we stopped by Grandparents new home and got the 1st class tour. It's turned out lovely and we're so happy to have them a bit closer than VA!
So very proud of our kids this weekend. Not only playing amazingly, but their attitudes towards their teammates, the sport and themselves! Their gift to their father on fathers day... showing him he's done such an incredible job on raising such awesome kids!
Happy Fathers Day Scott! You are the very BEST!
