Baseball has been a favorite way to enjoy summer for, well, a long time. Maybe the game moves so slow because it’s so hot?  Ok, I made that up.  But it’s the time of year for T-ball, little league, and professional baseball.  And with Father’s Day coming up, lots of folks will be enjoying a game at a local park.  If you have a picnic planned as well, this cute cupcake decorating idea from Bright Ideas will make dessert a bit more festive.  You can decorate them with your favorite team’s colors by using different M&M’s.  How cool is that?
