Shake it off

17 Apr

Late this afternoon we decided to shake off a tough day and go kick around a soccer ball. While we’ve lived in this town for almost a year now, we’re still figuring some things out, and where to find pick-up games of fútbol is one of them. We had recently found a campo by accident not too far from our house so we decided to give it a try. No one was there today, unfortunately, but we still had lots of fun.

Sig-o and z-baby were dressed for a serious day of fút, sporting the uniform of el Tri (la Selección Mexicana/Mexico’s national team).

They took special care putting on the new tacos (soccer cleats… a $2 consignment sale find!).

They ran.

They kicked.


They got stuck in the net.

And got lost on the field.

Z-baby even stole my camera while I was trying to nail sig-o with the ball practicing my shot and took his very first self portrait.

And then they called it a day.

    I like your men in their matching soccer outfits. The Z-baby is looking like a pro and he has real soccer shoes, I had to look twice. If my ‘Timan’ could see him he would turn green with envy. Both of my men, Hubs and ‘Timan’ are so much into football. Not for the Mexican team though, sorry ;-).

      Thanks! I got the soccer shoes second hand for cheap! And they had barely been worn!
