C is playing T-ball!!

So for the spring, we signed C up for T-ball. He seems to like it pretty well. They have practice once a week on Thursdays and then games on Saturday. He has missed a couple due to having strep throat and he has to run laps. His coach is a real slave driver!!

Yes, B is coach again. He just loves being in charge! JOKES! He just loves C so much and loves helping him learn these new things, like sports. C is one of the bigger kids on the team this season and I think he prefers that!!





And here is C throwing a runner out at first. Of course its the YMCA so no one is ever out, but C is really GREAT at fielding!!


I am trying some different formats for the videos...

don't forget about Easter...

Look at my little bunnies!!!! Love THEM!
So for Easter Church we went to a Baptist Church because my Department chair was playing a piano solo and she invited us...and we went. This was so fun and a big deal because I have always been anti-baptist because of their BIG church and everything so fancy smancie, BUT WE LOVED IT!!! and they don't drink...huh? I know!?!? It was so amazing. By the 3rd song, B and I were both crying. Maybe it was because we were sans kids, but it might have been just the AMAZINGNESS of it all...
Here is a family picture...this is as good as it gets...

We did the Easter egg hunt after church... The Easter Bunny had hid the eggs before church and so some squirrels had got to a few eggs. I hate to be them later that day :)



These kids love Easter and all the Easter that Easter brings them!!

So then we took the cousins to the zoo!!

Don't worry...I've been in touch with Andy and he told me about how great Mac is, but how they are elitist...

Look at these lovable cousins at the zoo:)
Here is a pic of everyone...but me, climbing:)
C is really giving James the evil eye...he really wanted his turn at the helm!
James helped C pet the goats. C is a bit skittish when it comes to getting dirty and petting random animals!!
Before Andy composed himself, these 3 had a go on the carousel. Notice how my sweet C is holding on for dear life and the other two are carefree. Needless to say, C did not go on the Carousel again and made me swear not to show the video of him shaking and holding on with all that is good and holy!

Chuck E Cheese's...where a kid can be a KID!!!

We loved this place. Aside from my POOR table choice, this was a great place to have a birthday party...or just an afternoon!! James immediately found the video camera where everyone in the place could see him...huh?


EVERYONE loved all the age-appropriate games...even B!!! Here is putting out some fires with his nephew, James!

I am glad to see some adults didn't let the kids steal all the fun...or tokens!!


I mean honestly, do these guys look like they are having fun or no?





Here is my precious AM's birthday cupcake cake with princesses...PERFECT!!!
