The photos below are screenshots taken from a video that is of one of the family picnics in Churchville, NY for Mom's side of the family... in 1988. I was four years old... Lenny was 8. : )
Lenny, Me, and Grandma!
Grandma was captain of a team and chose Lenny and I - thanks Grandma!
Me with Dad : )
Quite the kick! YEAH!
Three Maiorani's at the plate...
At this point in the video, someone asks who is actually kicking... it was Dad's turn... but I guess Lenny and I were giving him extra support! Ha
...ready to kick... by standing on the plate : P
20 years later... and Lenny and I were still playing kickball together! The photo below is from 2009. I began playing kickball in the DKBC (league in Denver) on Lenny's team in 2008... and played until I moved to Vietnam in the summer of 2011. Hilarious that our family tradition continued!
