The other week we decided to go hiking and have some fun. It was a rare Saturday when we didn't have soccer because of spring break so we went for it! We haven't been really hikers but as the kids get older it is easier to do. Not as much whining from them like, "my feet hurt" "how much further" "are we almost there" you know comments like that that make it SO much fun for the parents! We are for the most part past this and we can all enjoy the hike. Thank goodness!

Easter 2016

We had some great friends come over to celebrate Easter with! The kids loved hiding the eggs although I didn't boil them long enough. Lesson learned: boil eggs for MUCH longer so that when the kids break them ooey gooey centers are not running out. :( #gross #messy And I might have gone a little crazy in buying those PAAS egg containers to dye eggs in. If you ever need some we have plenty! :)

This year Jesse decided to play basketball and his daddy was one of the coaches. He had never played before. He had learned a little bit in gym class but thankfully the rest of his team was in the same boat. But unfortunately the other teams we played seemed to have players that were two feet taller and had played many times before. So it made for a long season. We tried to stay positive. It didn't seem to bother Jesse that they lost every game, thankfully. Jesse scored a few times throughout the season and their last game he scored 4 pts! High scorer! He wants to play next year so that is a good sign. But now it is on to soccer! :)

Jesse's 7th Birthday

Jesse celebrated his 7th birthday on October 28. Again, hard to believe he is 7! He wanted to play putt putt for his birthday so we took him and a few friends to play a couple of rounds and then for cupcakes. It was funny to watch some of them play. Jesse even got a hole in one! We love this little monkey! 

Jack's 5th Birthday

October 19, Jack turned 5! So hard to believe! We had a party with some friends from church at the house. He wanted a Skylanders cake and pizza for lunch. This boy is something else but we wouldn't have it any other way!

Football and Soccer

This year Jesse played flag football and Jack played soccer. Jesse has really started loving football. He loves to play it on the Wii or talk about it and really likes to play it outside with the family. He did really well this season by scoring several touchdowns and pulling lots of flags. Unfortunately, his team did not do so well but Jesse still had fun no matter if they lost. And Jack loved playing soccer again and really liked playing with his friend, Walter. It is so fun to see them out their playing. Momma and Daddy get excited!
