Spring

I planted a few things yesterday, but I still have lots more to go. I love checking on the blooms in the yard, and so do Kaden and Brynnlee. They fight over the watering can constantly- happen to have another one Marilyn? At this point I'd even take one with holes again.

On a stroke of luck my piano lesson showed up early yestereday and the other cancelled. So that meant I was able to make it in time to see the last inning of Kaden's very first t-ball game! Yay, cuz I was starting to feel like a horrible mom. It was cute and I posted pics and video on the family website.

In other news I haven't thrown up since Saturday night. I'm sure I just jinxed myself, but it IS something.

AND...

Happy Birthday April!
This girl has been one of my best friends ever. Most of my teenage adventures and misadventures wouldn't have been the same without her. Including, but surely not limited to, things like crisco and trampoline sunning, doing the Cindy Crawford workout at 4:30 am, dedicating songs to our friends from guys they thought were gross on Kiss 97, cruising Montgomery in the old Mazda, meeting random guys from Missouri at McDonalds, and using Tony D. as our personal body guard against stalkers. Good times!

Sadly, I haven't seen her since like 2000- maybe this year will be the year we actually meet up! Enjoy the last few years of your 20's, Sqwanks!

Old friends are priceless aren't they. Glad you were able to make it to the game.

Is Kaden playing for YMCA?? Sydnee had her first game last night, but since she was sick, she couldn't go. That would be fun to see you sometime! I need to get going with some planting. This Spring Weather is so nice!

Unfortunately, we don't have another. Not even a holy one. We're kind of trying to get out of the nursery biz.

That is great about the no puking! Here's to hoping that it will stay that way for the next 5 (or is it 6) months!!

Here is to spring and good ol' friends. There is nothing like them!

Good friends are worth treasuring. Sounds like you guys had quite the time together! Ahhh...those were the good old days when you could be crazy and silly and do really embarrassing things. Wait, I still do that!

I love the tball and egg hunt videos on the family blog, how do you capture these hilarious moments on video!? I'm glad to see Kayden isn't too cool to not wave to his mom when he run's into home and Brynlee's fall...priceless, we watched it like 5 times! Glad to hear that your feeling better and that you made it to the tball game!
