Christmas Eve Baseball Game On The Beach

Beach Baseball Fun And Games

My family lives in Southern California, so Christmas time for us is usually not worse than a slight chill in the air.

This year, we went down -- as we often do -- to a little beach town just north of San Diego, where the aunts, uncles, and all the rest of the extended family gets together to gather, catch up, and eat as much food as we can possibly fit into our bellies.

After the meal, everyone splits off, some doing dishes, others drinking beer and watching the sunset.

The kids usually run off their excess sugar from dessert, and this picture captures the moment when my niece and nephew were trying to practice their skills at the Essential American Skill: hitting a ball with a bat.

Needless to say, they may not have made any improvement that afternoon, but they definitely had fun.

Hi Christopher,

Great capture!

Thank you for you fantastic entry.

You know what I love about these yearly Photo Contests is that I get to share those sort of precious moments that families, like yourself, have enjoyed.

To me that is the greatest gift that anyone can give another person. The gift of Happy Memories and that snapshot sure looks like it was a happy day!

Best of luck with the Contest
