120: Their Best

Seriously. This was their best. I gave them haircuts and tried to get a good pic. No cooperation from them or the blinds in my living room.

119:Hey Batta Batta

This dude got his first base hit tonight! It was a horrible pitch. Way too high and we were all a little shocked, including him, when he connected! I wish I had captured the look on his face as he ran to first base. I was too busy having a mommy freak out to pull it off. This pic is of him looking like he's concentrating hard on the play that's getting ready to happen. Only he's really just trying to keep him self warm.

118: Under the Sea

We are leaving for the happiest place on earth soon. I had this little beauty made for my princess. It will be a surprise as well as the trip. I can hardly wait!

117: Form

Look at that form! We actually had 2 games today. The Orioles played this morning, and the T-ballers played in the afternoon. I forgot to bring my camera to the earlier one. Both teams did fantastic!

116: Surprise!

EEK! Look at the sunburned face. I missed my flight this morning and instead of connecting through Denver, like I was supposed to, I ended up in Phoenix for a few hours. My OLDER brother, who lives in Phoenix, just happened to be traveling back home for a week of vacation on this very day. Missing my flight this A.M. turned out to be not such a bad thing. Of all the flights, I ended up on his :) We got to hang out for a couple hours before it was time to board. I had to say good bye once we landed but I'll get my chance to hang out again in a few days. That is, of course, if my oldest boy child will let me.

115: Last Night

My last night in the South was spent drinking more wine, eating pulled pork sams, and playing a couple games of cornhole out back. That is my little wiener friend, Ipo. We became super chums this visit :) It was a super fun trip but I am ready to get back home to my family.

114: The Garden Cafe

This is my favorite place to eat when I go to South Carolina. It's small, funky and they make the best fried green beans on the face of the earth. Plus the Cajun ranch dipping sauce is pretty fantastic as well!

113: Triumph

We played a few rounds of miniature golf this afternoon. I was victorious 2 out of 3 rounds. K, and I, smoked the self proclaimed mini golf king!

112: The Lady on the Hill

We Toured the Biltmore Estate today. A.W.E.S.O.M.E. Really can't describe the amazingness of the whole place. Before We toured the Estate we took a Segway Tour which was really really cool. After the tour we walked the grounds. So far the weather has been perfect. Not too hot, not too cold, and NOT raining!

111: Wine, Wine, and More Wine...

It was hard to pick a picture for today. We Arrived at the Biltmore Estate, in Asheville North Carolina, at lunch time. Had an amazing lunch in their Library restaurant. Then we hiked it down to, Antler Hill Village, for a tour of the Winery, and a Wine and Chocolate Pairing class. I learned a whole lot about wine today! The Car above was George Vanderbilt's. It is the size of my Suburban!

107: New Kicks....Again

I just bought her new shoes a month ago, but she was already in need of a new pair. She knows what she likes, wants, and then wears the heck out of them. At least we get our money's worth. I am quite fond of these ones though. The last pair....Not so much :)

103: Tball

Today was the first Tball game of the year. This little dude has a huge smile on his face all day. He digs being out their and gives 110%. He was so fun to watch.

102: Good Egg

I was bad about getting the camera out today. So here's a pic from a few days back. He's our good egg.

101: Batter up!

They are off and running! The Orioles had their first peewee game last night. They played an older team, and had to play by rules that were way above their level. Considering half the team has never played before and a quarter of them are coming up from T ball, they did really really well. I love the look on his face in this picture. You can tell he was swinging hard!

100: The Line Up

Yay, I made it to 100! Here's our ball lineup this year. The two T-ballers are on the Rockies. The big guy is an "Oreo" according to his little brother ;) Tomorrow night is our first game of the season and we couldn't be more excited! We are keeping our fingers crossed for great weather.

99: Treasures

We acquired a travel trailer, from a tenant who couldn't pay rent. All sorts of treasures were found inside. This right here is probably the least cool to me, but happens to be really cool in the biggest boys eyes.

   an overly zealous or enthusiastic person,

The boys often refer to their sister as a maniac. They aren't far off on that one ;)

94: Spring Break Fun

I took the big kids to Earth Glaze Fire today. It was a first for us an definitely not a last! My girl child especially liked it. In a week, after they are fired in the kiln, we will have a dragon, kitty, and a new coffee cup joining our household decor.
