Family trip to Bryant Denny

Over spring break we took a trip to Tuscaloosa to tour Bryant Denny Stadium.  It was so much fun!  We got to see the locker room, the president's sky box, media rooms, the field and so much more!  Will thought every second of it was amazing and Isabel liked it but wanted to know where all the cheerleaders were!

the locker room!

Will was super excited to find Derrick Henry's locker

He found Amari Cooper too!

touching Bear Bryant's nose like the players do before every game

Will loved seeing the tunnel to the field

Getting to go on the field was definitely a highlight for all of us

Isabel was excited to see where her favorite teacher, Mrs. Smith, cheered while in college

Happy Easter 2016

Easter Sunday is always a special day celebrating the resurrection of Jesus and spending time with family.  As the kids get older, they understand more and more of this day and I love the conversations that we get to have with them.

These two are growing up way too fast

Valleydale Easter Egg Hunt

The day before Easter we went to Valleydale's annual Easter egg hunt.  Fortunately the weather was perfect!  As always the kids had a great time and we left with lots of eggs, candy, goodies and fun memories.
Ready for fun

Josh was the MC! I think he had way too much fun making the kids wait!

...and GO!

how Isabel feels about finding a egg with no candy inside

Checking out their candy.  Because Isabel has an expander she can't eat any chewy candy so she and Will made some trades

Baseball's back!

About a week before basketball season ended, baseball season started.  This is a whole new experience this year.  After playing tball and coach pitch, this year Will started playing with a pitching machine.  This is also the first year with harder baseballs, strike outs and 3 outs to end the inning.  It took him a little while to get used to the pitching machine, but Will has really improved and is having fun this year.  He has 3 boys from his class on his team and gets to play against friends from school too.

Isabel's 9th birthday

My sweet baby girl turned 9 this year.  Once again, her birthday fell on Disciple Now weekend at church but we were still able to fit in some celebrating.  She and Will spent the night with Nana and then met Josh and me at the church.  Because she just couldn't wait any longer, she got to  open one present in the church parking lot.  Then she got to enjoy a fun concert from Rush of Fools before we met lots of family for her birthday dinner.

To celebrate her birthday, Isabel invited a few friends to eat pizza, have manicures and then enjoy some yogurt.  It ended up being the perfect celebration for my girly girl who is growing up way too fast.
