Graham's First T-Ball Game

Well, that was a game we will never forget! It was late. It was about 30 degrees. And we got beat 13-3. But the kids seemed to have fun and they looked cute so that's all that matters at this age, right? Our team is called the Lil' Knights and they are all four and five years old. Graham just turned four so he is on the very young end. I think the extra year makes a difference because the team we played looked to be on the older side and they definitely seemed less confused that our kids. :) Graham got a good hit so we are very proud of him!

This is what is looks like when Graham plays left field...

Graham at bat!


Since spring break is such a busy time to take a trip, we decided to wait until April for that and instead we just hung out at home over the break. However, Randy really wanted to take the boys camping so he decided to take the day off work on Friday and head to Lake Arcadia, just a few miles away. It worked out perfectly because I was able to bring Reid and hang out for the day, but then we headed home after dinner and left the big boys to the "real" camping. Everyone had a great time and it was the perfect end to a great, laid back spring break.

Good Times

I just uploaded the pics and videos from my phone so this blog will be a hodgepodge of different events!

Here are a few from a Saturday when we went to Home Depot's Build and Grow program. It was so fun! The boys built a wooden car. Jack loved using the hammer and of course Graham loved painting. Reid enjoyed putting his stickers on everything BUT his car. :)

Here are the boys meeting their cousin, Leah, for the first time:

One of Reid's new favorite hobbies:

And here he is on the morning I found him covered in Vick's Vapor Rub:

The big boys were excited to fill out their brackets this year!

More cousin time:

Cousins at the Science Museum

Daniel, Adrienne, and Brooklyn were in town this weekend and the weather turned cool again so we all decided to go to the science museum. The boys enjoyed showing Brooklyn all of their favorite things and she seemed pretty impressed. Everyone loved the dinosaurs and the gymnastics/track and field area. Reid especially loves flopping around in the foam pit. :) The big boys love going in the space ship but Brooklyn was a little too nervous. Maybe next time. Can't believe she wasn't scared of the dinosaurs! What a cute bunch of kiddos. They play so well together!
