Ball, Eggs, & An Empty Tomb!

We are right in the middle of ball season and pretty much have a practice or game every night of the week - and I love it! Ryan had her first two ballgames last week and Noah started practicing. Nathan is coaching both teams so we are staying pretty busy. Ryan is doing great at t-ball and loving it - she likes to play in the dirt a little too much, but that is normal for a four year old. Daddy promised her a new doll if she tried her hardest and mostly stayed out of the dirt for a few games - so we will see how that goes. Noah is starting out a little more rough. This is his 4th year to play and at times he loves it and at times he could care less. This is his first year of pitching machine, so that is all new too. He gets bored playing in the field since the ball doesn't come to him often, so we are thinking of trying him at catcher to see if that is a good fit for him.

We always have dinner with Nathan's family on Wednesday nights. A few years ago we started hunting Easter eggs on the Wednesday before Easter. I love this tradition. There are only 3 kids so each kid gets to hunt a lot of eggs and not worry about having to hurry or miss out of anything. This year we did it at Spadra park and had a really good time.

Noah was out of school Friday and was begging to go to daycare with Ryan - he loves it there and Ryan loves it when Noah comes with her. So, I spent my kidless day by cashing in my Valentine massage from Nathan, grocery shopping and cleaning house all by myself - it was nice! That night Nathan and I got to have a date night! We went to Fox & Fork for dinner and then to see Fate of the Eight - the last Fast and Furious movie and it was better than I was thinking it would be, since sequels usually are not as good, but it was a good ending to the series. I love getting the chance to eat dinner without potty breaks and crayons and seeing a movie without sharing popcorn and saying "shhhhh" over and over :)

We had family pictures taken Saturday morning and then after a quick lunch inside McDonald's (the kids pick this week for  where we would eat we don't normally go inside) we headed to a first birthday party for our friend's son. As soon as we got there the kids saw the trampoline and just had to jump on it - we don't have one since our yard is not flat anywhere so they were so excited about it! The rest of the evening we hung out playing board games, video games and watched a movie together. Then it was off to bed so the Easter Bunny could come!

The Easter Bunny brought Noah a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle toy, mini lego set, movie and some chocolate. Ryan got a Moana doll, movie and candy. The kids elves dropped by to drop off a little Easter gift too :) We then went to church for Easter Bunny pictures and an awesome message! Then it was off to Grandmas house for the annual cousin egg hunt!

The rest of our Easter was spent on the four-wheeler, playing in the yard, and playing games. Another busy week full of a parent's meeting, ball practice, ball games, family dinner night, book fair, grandparent's day, and lots more!
