We were lucky enough to have Connor’s brother and family stay with us a couple days for their spring break.  Our kids can never have enough cousin time and we can never have enough hang out with the adults time so it wasn’t long enough but it was sure fun.

We went to dinner at BJ’s.  There was a kids table and a adult table!  Genius!

And who doesn’t love a pizzookie?

The next morning we got ready for church and all walked.  So fun!

After church we had a quick lunch and headed into the city.  We started with a walk on the Golden Gate Bridge!  We took two girls and split up boys and girls so we got some good chats in!

Then we headed to see the sea lions!

Then we walked around Pier 39 and of course got to see some of the strett performers.

Probably one of my favorite things was seeing the kids rooms filled to the brim with kids.  They loved having a sleepover and Kinsley still asks if her cousins are coming to sleep in her room.

The next morning the boys had school and they were heading out to Yosemite and it was heartbreaking having to say goodbye.  No amount of time feels long enough when you are with family!!!  We miss you already!

Baseball Season Begins

This year the boys are on different baseball teams.  Corbin is in Pioneer on the Phillies and Cason is on the A’s in T-ball.  They both have lots of friends on their team and od course have made some new ones.  We have 4 sets of siblings on both teams so that makes things more fun and a little bit easier.  

Here are some pictures from practices:

Then Opening Day is always fun.

The hardest part was trying to get pictures running from one team to the other.  Then when they were getting their pictures taken.  For good and bad, both teams were schedule close together.  It was funny watching Connor go from one team back to the other switching shirts and hats constantly.  I wish I would have gotten a video of that but I was too concerned with trying to help. Ha!

We are excited to start this fun season.  Even though it’s busy and kind of tiring with 2 practices a week and 2 or more games a week, it’s one of my favorite times of year!
