Basketball with Mickey

The first week of August found us in Orlando watching CJ play basketball in the National AAU Championship games.

~ Opening ceremony ~

complete with an opening parade of players, lighting of their own Olympic torch, paper fireworks, and a Grand Welcome from the stars of Disney World, Mickey and Minnie!

Warming up in "The Field House"

Checking out the competition

Going over the game plans!

Even the little sisters got in on pre-game exercises!

Ready for the last game!

These cute little girls won all their pool play games and the first game of the tournament before losing by 1 point to a team from Washington, DC.

The very last huddle of 2012!

Campbell made her foul shot!  Yeah!!

The scoreboard at the beginning of the 3rd period.
We were up by one ~ talk about a close, nerve racking game!
Mimi is too old for this much excitement for sure!

Flight finished in 4th place at Nationals!!!

Way to go Coaches, Campbell and Flight!!
Mimi can't wait until next year!

Then . . .

visit Mickey and let the memories begin!
