Let the games begin! Both boys decided they wanted to play baseball this Spring, and since I made them miss last Spring, it was time to say okay. (I'm not much of a baseball mom. Soccer all the way for me, please!)
It was a new experience for both of them. Carter moved up from T-ball to Coach Pitch and Isaac went from Coach Pitch to the Minors. It's a whole different ball game when the ball is flying at you at bat - especially when it's thrown by a 10 yr old!
Carter was on the Diamondbacks and Isaac was a Yankee. They both had great coaches.
Carter's first game and first at bat.
Taking time for his adoring fans.
The boys' biggest fan!
Isaac's first game he played against his good friend, Matthew Kukiela. It wasn't pretty. The Angels crushed us, but we took them out the rest of the season!
I'm not really sure what happened, but that's all the pictures I got of Isaac and I ruined our camera for the rest of the season. Thank goodness my in-laws got some pictures when they came in May!
Don't they look so peaceful and cozy? Even if they are supposed to be listening to the words of our prophet, they're both excused this time. Eric had just gotten home from overnight call and this is the two of them relaxing after Ian threw up on him. What a welcome home when you haven't had any sleep! That was the beginning of a stomach bug that hit our whole entire family. Yuck!
The kids talked me into setting up the tent in the front room with the laptop so they could reinact King Benjamin and gather in their tent as a family to listen to his words.
I love conference and am so thankful for the messages they always have just for me. We are truly blessed to have a living Prophet!
Our favorite part of Easter is coloring Easter eggs! We love it!
Ian had no problem getting into it. Check out his hands!
Love it or no, it's pretty serious business.
So pretty and colorful!
Our family of Eggs!
Easter breakfast we had crepes and berries and cream. Our favorite!
The weather was perfect for our Easter Egg Hunt.
That bunny sure knows how to hide them!
Ian found just as many as the other kids. Nothing could slow him down!
Much to the disappointment of the others, Carter found the coveted golden egg AGAIN for the second year in a row! Lucky!
Looks like they found them all. Nice job!

We're so thankful for this special holiday each year to make memories together as a family, but most importantly to celebrate and remember and show gratitude to our Savior for his Atonement and Resurrection. We're so BLESSED!
