V Is for Victory! (Or the pursuit of it...)

V is for victory. (Or, at least, the pursuit of it...)

Seeing my 3 sons and their dad play hoops makes me a winner.

Especially when they come home with no injuries...

Looking for something, guys?

Tonight they'll be looking for a LAKERS victory!
(And this spousal blackmail picture? Icing on the cake, baby!)

It is wonderful to see them enjoying time together.

My name is PJ. said...

I love that they got to spend time together playing bball and that you captured it on film!!

Mumsy said...

Great pictures. It warms my heart to see fathers and sons spending fun time together. Yes, you are a winner, so are they. Hugs

Lisalulu said...

nice, made me smile!

KC Mom said...

Ha! It seems like every time my husband goes and plays a sport with the guys he comes home hurt. So, I love it when he has fun and doesn't get hurt too.
Did they win...or is it tonight?

BECKY said...

Oh Sue, wonderful pictures! And what a bunch of great-looking guys. You have an awesome family!

Sue said...

The game is tonight. And if the Lakers lose, I just might go live with some non-Laker fanatics until the grief on the home front passes...

As for the men in my family and their penchant for not just watching but playing basketball..,I, too, love it when none of them gets hurt!

=)

Of course I love to see the game being played in backyards all over the country. It gives me fodder for telling Michael it will never really be over.
Yes, and GO Lakers!

Your 3 sons playing with their Dad!? How wonderful is that! What a great moment to capture, and a poem too, no less. You are good!

Cherie said...

That very last shot is especially awesome!!
Good luck to the Lakers!!!

such fun pics :D

Amy said...

How fun! Father son time is so important, even when the sons are fathers themselves. Good quality time there.

H said...

That looks like great fun. It's brilliant that they can enjoy time together!

Jenny said...

I love this link to Alphabe-Thursday's letter "V"!

Good lucky guys, one goofy photo, action...

Just a perfect package all rolled into one!

Thanks for linking up!

A+

Karen Mortensen said...

This is wonderful. Love all those action shots.

GO LAKERS!! I may not be as excited as true fans, but I do love how love of the game unites fathers and sons. It's a good thing to see. If the Lakers lose tonight, you and I can go somewhere together, with our girls. My son Scott (soon to be married Scott) is marrying into a family of Celtics fans. Good times.

Caroline of Salsa Pie said...

Looks like so much fun! What a neat family!

Darlene said...

As usual Heather got some great shots. So glad you had her go back to get these. I do wish Amy's comment were true. Unfortunately only one son is a father, still I have hopes one day. I just hope it happens before I die. Ha!

If the Lakers don't win, it will be sad indeed. I wouldn't want to be around your house if they dob't. I don't think I have the nerve to watch the game. It would put me on edge too much.

Jo said...

what a great big family! how fun is that watching them all play together! heartwarming pictures family pics for sure!

Viki said...

What great pictures of all the guys playing together. Sweet that you captured the moment. BooHoo, I sure wish my Cav's were playing tonight. Good luck to the Lakers.

Jackie said...

Look at those men! Sue I bet they take great care of you!

I love this post. The second shot is really a gorgeous photo. And "spousal blackmail photo" - love it! Kathy

Just ME the MOM said...

Great photos - hard to catch them all on the move! Can't wait to hear what comes to pass with the spousal blackmail picture - hee!

Congrats on your victories!

Cheryl D. said...

Happy V-Day! Yay! The Lakers won! Boo to the rioting, which I'll never understand!

Anna said...

Dear Sue,
Thank you for visitng and commenting on my blogpost, 'V as in Viking'. I seem to have been able to get several other 'closet-Swedes' and other 'closet-Scandinavians' to confess their roots! What fun!

Thank you for telling me about your grandparents and your husband's Norwegian grandparents! (I adore the Norwegians!)

Great choice of V-word--Victory!

Let's keep in touch!

Best wishes
Anna
