Hannah's first T-Ball Game

Success!  The game went as well as it could have gone for a 3 year olds first organized sporting event.  David stayed close by her for the practice and the game because she was a little uncomfortable without either one of us there.  He was so proud of his daughter.  He had a huge grin on his face the entire time.  They had a 20 minute practice and then a 20 minute game following.  The game consists of everyone hitting once.  Hannah batted first for her team and managed to make it all the way home, with the help of 3 other players.  We took her out for ice cream afterwards.  On the way to Dairy Queen, she told us she wanted to play again.  Success!

A painter in training

We've been painting, a lot.  Most of the painting Hannah has done has been gifts.  A month ago we painted a birdhouse for Grandpa Bob.  We painted to Christmas gifts.  We painted Mother's Day gifts.  The past couple of days though, we've been painting for the sheer joy of painting.  I bought two small canvases a while back and finally pulled them out for Hannah.  It worked out well because we've been spending so much time outside with the house addition.  This way, we were able to set Hannah up outside and let her occupy herself while we all ran around doing other stuff.  She painted two beautiful canvases.  One went in her bedroom, and the other she gave to Amy and Tom.  I was a little sad, because it's SO pretty but I know that we'll paint more.

A Coffee Shop and a Nursery

Yesterday, Michelle and I headed to a coffee shop down the road and then went to our favorite nursery.  I'm not sure a nursery is a safe place for us to go together, seeing as we both have mild gardening addictions!  Actually, I walked away pretty cheap this visit.  Of course, I got 3 plants I wasn't planning on getting.  I'll take pictures of my new additions later today.  I got a gorgeous foxglove!  Both kids kept placing random plants in our wagon, they're so funny.

And they all turn 3!

Saturday was the big day.  And big it was.  Big but fun.  It was earlier enough to not be too, although it was pretty warm around noon.  Poor Vivian and Ethan were bright red.  I feel confident in saying that the kids had a lot of fun.  There weren't many kids out at the park, outside of the ones at the party so our kids pretty much had the run of it.  We rounded up just after 1 pm, which was plenty of time for wear the kids out.  Everyone was in a good mood and I don't think the kids fought at all!
