Well it’s official. Our World Series Champions Giants are mathematically eliminated from the playoffs. If only August hadn’t been the worse baseball month ever (for us Giants fans) we might have had shot at it right now. Unfortunately, we rolled the dice and stuck with our non-hitting, stellar pitching staff that got us the 2010 Championship and just fell short this year. Be that as it may, it was a great run (minus August) and we’ve enjoyed this crazy 2 season ride with our champs.
As a tribute to our team this post is for them. And for you fans of our Giants, Wilson, Street Art and just cute kids in general
I follow a blog called Bernalwood. I love all the little snippets of news, photos and just general information about our intimate little neighborhood they have. When these posts of Brian Wilson street art popped up in my feed I was naturally intrigued. I put it on my list of things to go look up if I ever found an extra few minutes driving home to or from school. And one day I did
About a week or so later another post with information about the spreading of this mural pops up in my Bernalwood feed. Well now not only did I want to go see them, I thought a few shots of my little Giant fans with the artwork was in store (I cannot believe the crumbs from the cookie I bribed her with would not brush off easily!)
Since the original Bernal Wilson art was in a spot I couldn’t get to easily without climbing a 6 foot concrete wall and trudging through tall weeds, I decided we’d check out the second.
Jack-Jack was wondering about the tall man on the fence and pointed curiously at him. But that lasted all of 5 seconds
At least she sat still for me to snap some quick shots
The pretty morning light was just coming up from behind the house so I managed to get some decent shots
Plus for whatever reason (umm cookie maybe?) she wasn’t running around much so I didn’t have to chase her around while trying to get my shot and exposure right. Thank you for small miracles
I wonder what she makes of all my picture taking in that little head of hers.
My baby Giant. She’ll be naming players and positions next season
For the 3rd Wilson mural I decided to leave the babe at home and bring my older one with me. I thought he’d enjoy this one more since it was spray painted on a chalkboard garage door!
The owner of this home leaves a bucket of chalk out for the neighborhood kids (I think) to come get creative with their drawing skills. So cute!
My Rex was a little hesitant at first since he thought the owners might get upset if they caught him drawing on their garage door! But after a little coaxing, he quickly got into it
He decided what he wanted to write and had me help him spell it out as he wrote
I just adore this one of him next to the life-size Wilson art. I should have gotten him a can of spray paint! Pretty sure the we’d get yelled at by the owners then!
After writing what he wanted he then decided he wanted to draw a picture of himself pitching.
Next to Wilson! *sigh* I love this child
He would stop to take a step back to make sure he liked the progress of the drawing.
He decided he needed bigger arms if he was going to be a pitcher so he fixed that problem
And of course just like most future Giant pitchers, he wanted to be just like Timmy!
Maybe one day when you’re older son, little boys will be wearing your number just like you wear number 55 now.
Thank you SF Giants for making our summers always full of excitement and joy for our young family. Yes we could live with a little less torture but hey we had a World Series Championship team and it was worth every bit of it.
