Spring Break 2016

We  had such a great spring break this year!!  And all we did was stay at home!

We kicked it off with a fun dinner and swimming with friends...

Then we spent an entire day at a friend's beach house with beautiful weather!

Gary took Thursday and Friday off work so we could take a quick trip to Vegas or Palm Desert, but rain was forecasted everywhere!  So instead, we decided to stay home and had so much fun!  We did family fun day on Thursday and saw Zootopia and went bowling and out to dinner.

On Friday, we drove down to Encinitas to spend the day with some friends that were camping down there.  Everyone knows that I am NOT a camper, but it was such an amazing day and night...they are converting me! Not to mention, they have super nice campers so it's more like 'glamping'. ;)

The sunset was amazing!!

Easter 2016

We started the weekend by doing Easter eggs with friends...

After a very early morning Easter egg hunt out front to find all the filled eggs the Easter bunny left, it was time to search for Easter baskets!

Then it was time for mass!

After church, we went to the golf club for brunch, and it was so yummy!  As you can see, they have a chocolate fountain...

And then another Easter egg hunt at the club...Everett ran into one of his friends from school!

Baseball Grandparents' Day

Saturday was grandparents' day for baseball- Everett was so excited to have both sets of grandparents cheering him on!  It was such a fun morning- tons of great food, and Everett presented his grandmas with a flower. :)

Everett had his best game ever- he was fielding and hitting like a champ!  We told the grandparents that they need to come to every game!


One of our friends bid on a night out on a yacht at last year's fundraiser, and we were so lucky that they asked us to join the fun!

Sophia's 80's Skating Party

Snack Day for the RED SOX!

Yes, Red Sox.  Everett's team had to change from the Nationals to the Red Sox!!  The league could not get our jerseys so after several games (without jerseys), a completed banner, and already having embroidered Nationals hats and parents buying hats/shirts, we had to change our team!  Luckily, the boys seem fine with it.  We had snack duty last week...

Denim & Diamonds

A few weeks ago, we had the school adult fundraiser, and the theme was "denim & diamonds" was such a fun night!  Too fun. ;)  But we raised tons of money for the school!

Let's Go in the Pool!

The backyard renovation is in full swing now (plans finally approved!), so during a play date today, Ella and her friend run out of her room in bathing suits saying they want to go in the pool! Hahaha!!!

It's finally here!  Everett's very first baseball season has officially begun!!  Opening ceremonies and his first game EVER happened of our most special and memorable days yet!  I HEART BASEBALL!

Welcome to opening day!!!!!

Lining up to be announced!

Opening ceremonies was so fun with all the adorable boys lined up on the field in their uniforms...

All the sisters came out to support their brothers!

Go Nationals!

A little practice before the game...

Waiting to bat...

Some instruction from his coach before going up to bat...

Everett was the very first person up to bat for his very first game!

Then the boys hit the field!

And to top off a great day, Everett got a pic with one of Ella's besties' big brother, who Everett loves, and also happens to be on the Nationals!

It's going to be a great season!!!!!!!
