Here are some pictures from our game on Saturday. We play in the Vancouver Women's Flag Football League and I've been playing on this team for 5 seasons (missed one because I was pregnant) and its just a lot of fun. It's great because I drive in with the Langley girls (friends from work) and we get a chance to catch up on the way to practice or a game. Then, once there I can catch up with Vancouver friends that I know from UBC (and others that have joined our team). I guess its also nice because its just pure `Louise time' where I don't have to worry about taking care of our little guy and I know he's super happy at home with daddy. Oh ya, an extra 4 hours of exercise per week is good too!

Half time talk with our coach Robbie

Love playing in the sun!

Leah is our center and her spirals are always perfect for me!

Here I'm looking for Liz, she got 2 TD's and a convert in this game. We've got a double header this weekend and the weather is supposed to be pretty warm so we'll see how it goes! I have a feeling that I won't be able to play football much longer as it just gets harder to get out to Vancouver with Gary having softball on the same day and us having a kid and just one car. Maybe I'll have to join Gary in softball?! Oh boy...bad memories of a Dekens' family reunion where my mom was up to bat and hit a fly ball and I couldn't see properly with the sun in my face and it hit me in the neck. I'm scared of those baseballs.

  1. yes, I don't like flying balls either. Remember when Norman was up to bat, and he hit the pitcher, Auntie Lois, during Dekens' family reunion? ... you look pretty buffed up in that one up-close picture, eh? How about we start out own, local football team - Dekens vs. anybody!
