start of the season

the beginning of the season. we headed down south for the weekend. our first tournament of the year. our weekend consisted of baseball, eating, swimming, more baseball and the best part sleeping in! we left the two little ones with grandma and grandpa. rick only jumped out of his shoes once or twice in pure excitement. i am not sure if it was because brendan did something out of this world fabulous(i don't think so) or because he was able to spend some quality time with his one true love-a baseball game. lily was back to making instant friends with those who spend a lot of time at baseball parks also. she enjoyed games of hands-up stands-up, red-rover and tag. that old school kind of fun. the best kind of fun. and when mom says, "absolutely not, you can't sit on top of the dug-out" don't let that stop you, just go ask dad.

nothing says spring..

nothing says spring like tulips. i love tulips. but these tulips i bought a couple weeks ago are as white as the snow that has fallen the last couple of days. ugh. so i will keep buying tulips at costco for inside my house until i can see my tulips outside my window.

first of all what a terrible blurry picture. i don't know how to fix that. i read on someones blog about OPAM. one project a month. what a fabulous idea. my project for the month is to finally move jessi into her new room-the old playroom. we cleaned out the room today, we meaning me and 2 very helpful toddlers. this weekend will be painting (done by the hubby, i am a terrible painter) and a new light fixture will be hung. bad news is that everything in this room is now in the family room. i did make a path to get to the couches for tv watching. do you love my model? pants are overrated. he thoroughly enjoyed dancing to the high school musical 3 cd in an empty room. me too. i will post pictures of our progress. wish us luck!
