First Baseball Game

Today was Aunt Beverly's birthday!  They all came over our house for cake tonight!

Here's a super huge post to finish out the week.  Some morning fun in Ariel's class.

 Late Friday afternoon, we had a sneak preview of the NAC pool!

 After 5 years, Amy and I finally made it to the adult pool!

 They were filling the kids pool.

 Lucky boys got some doughnuts!
 I had to take Aden to buy a new bat.  They changed the regulations.  Of course Ariel had to buy one too.
 It's in the 80's!

 That night, Ariel went to dance school for a party.  Amanda was there and took care of her.  
Saturday was Aden's first baseball game.  It was still nice.  In fact, a little too nice.  Aden's face and my arm got burnt even though we applied lotion.  

 Go Golden Rams!
 Our handsome athlete.
He struck out every time and was not happy about it.  It's hard to know when to swing when the kids pitch everywhere and the teenage umpires have always moving strike zones.  
 While we were there, Amy, her mom and the kids were at McDonalds!  I don't know how that happened but Eli looks happy.

 Then they came over to the game.

 The twin haven't been around dogs in a while so they don't really know how to react to them.
 The boys got a little disruptive.

Ariel is showing an interest again!
 It was a long game.
 We took the boys for a walk to the neighbors house when we got home.
 Now that's a trampoline!

 Have a great weekend!

Off to France

It's Wednesday night.  I had a nice birthday.  The kids helped me open my present this morning.  Amy and I had a yummy lunch at the Three Monkeys Cafe.  The rest of the day was work and kids activities.  We will do cake tomorrow night!  I got lots of love on Facebook, which is always fun.  Another year has gone by.  Now we can focus on Amy's birthday!

Last week, Aden had his first baseball practice.  This new coach is all business and actually really good.  He's working hard on the boy's fundamentals.  
 I couldn't get that close.
 We didn't know any of the kids.

 Aden is pretty good with the bat.
 Fooling around.

 Those kids love to make a mess.
 At school,  the teacher was getting the room ready for the trip to France!  All the kids had to bring in their luggage and things they wanted to pack.

 I'm not sure what the costumes were about.
 Playing outside with the neighbors.  I can't believe how long it's been since we did this.  

 Toddlers on the wrong side of the gate!
Basement fun.

 Let's take a quick sports break.  Woo hoo!  The Sixers ended the season with 16 straight wins, a franchise record and the record to end a season, and in 3 place overall.  Pretty amazing!  
 The boys were excited about their flight to Paris!
 Here we go!

This is customs.  
 Here are the passports.

 The plane!
 The boys did not know what to make of any of it.

 Hopefully the teacher got some good pics of them going through the airport.
 Ariel isn't going anywhere this year. Boring.
