Cream cheese pound cake is simple to make and even easier to eat.
We went to a high school softball game this past weekend with the kiddos. My friend’s sister is the head coach for a local team and her games are always fun to watch. I was excited to go because I love love love me some softball. I played all throughout middle school, high school and even a little bitty bit in college. (A junior college for a few games.. but I count it.)
So anytime we are able to get out to a game I’m a happy camper.
I wasn’t sure how well the kids would behave during the game but we got lucky. The kids did pretty well up until the 5th inning. (I say pretty well but I mean they didn’t cause a big distraction as they were climbing up and down the bleachers during the game.) Then they started getting antsy and Ryley would very loudly ask “Is it done yet?” It’s hard to explain that we aren’t sure how long the game will go, but there are a few more innings.
I was sort of sad that my little lady wasn’t more interested in softball. I tried to explain it to her as the game went on, but she just didn’t seem to care. (Insert crushed momma heart here.)
Yesterday was a really nice day out so I sent the kids outside to play. I went to the garage to grab something and saw our gloves out of the corner of my eye. I grabbed them (we happen to have 4 between Ryon and I) and some softballs and headed back outside with the kids. Ryon gave Ryley a glove and I got to play catch with Avery.
Ryley absolutely loved playing catch. We would give her tips on how to cradle the ball once it got to her glove and step and throw to get better distance. You could see her trying to process everything each time she threw it back. She ate it up. (Insert giant puffy momma heart here.)
Then we did a little hitting practice after. We just tossed the ball gently towards her and she whacked it over and over again. Each time she was more excited then the last. We told her “You are really good Ryley!” And she said “Yea, I just need a team now” and went back to perfecting her swing.

This pound cake looks so incredibly moist! I WISH we were into softball season here — our snow is almost gone now, so that’s one step closer!
Ha! I coached softball when we lived in Michigan and we had snow on our field in April. It was nuts to me! And thank you for the sweet comment about the pound cake! 🙂
