From Ballet to T- Ball

Lucy and Kit just finished their Spring T-ball season. They played on a team with their classmates from school. There were enough players for two teams. The girls played on the team with all of the boys in their class! The other girls in their class played on the other team. Lucy and Kit fared just well with the boys. It was and (still is) a cold Spring so most of the games were played in pants and coats! Which was a problem for Lucy as she did not like the color of her uniform shirt because it did not match any of her pants!! Oh the fashion dilema we faced every Sunday prior to the game! Her other dilema was the fact that Rich was their coach and she wasn't sure whether to call him Coach or Daddy! All things worked themselves out and the girls had lots of fun and learned a few things along the way!

Who knows?!

I don't think Kit will catch anything standing like this!

Or Lucy!

That's better!

Their favorite part was batting!

And of course making it on base!

The best part of all was.......

Getting their first trophy!!!!!

Running to show us her trophy!!!

Ballet Recital

The girls had their first ballet recital this weekend. They danced The Butterfly Dance. They have practiced for months and months. They did a great job and I loved watching them. They had a small class of only 5 so they looked so little up on the big stage. They enjoyed it for the most part. Kit told me afterwards that she was scared because it was so dark and she couldn't see us in the audience. I think she was a little relieved when it was over. Lucy on the other hand loved it and didn't want it to end. She curtsied throughout the rest of the day and slept with her costume next to her. It was a sweet recital. The girls have one more class and then we are going to take a ballet hiatus for the Summer.

Ruby Tuesday

Yesterday we had the pleasure of welcoming another visitor!! It was a surprise for Lucy as well as Kit. Lucy's best buddy Ruby flew in from Minneapolis with her Dad. Her Dad had a business trip here and brought Ruby along so she could stay with us for a couple of days!!! Lucy was counting down the minutes until her arrival!

We patiently awaited at the baggage claim
Lucy was so excited when I told her the plane was at the gate

Kit ran toward Ruby when we saw her!

Buddies reunited!!!

Lucy greeted "Mr. Handsome" as she likes to call him

with a smile and a big hug!

We came home from the airport and rode bikes and scooters, played outside and then went out for a nice dinner!!! The girls acted as if they had just seen one another yesterday! Ruby and Lucy were both so sweet and included Kit in everything!

The girls all snuggled up in bed

Lucy reading a goodnight story!

Today we woke up to a beautiful, sunny day! We packed up our things and headed to the beach!

The girls ran back and forth to get wet sand

so they could build lots of sand castles

Ruby was on a mission to find as many

shells and rocks as she could!

We had a perfect day with our perfect house guest!!

We love you Ruby!!!!

A Few Visitors

It is starting to look a bit like Spring around here. We are all getting excited for warmer weather, longer days and lucky for us lots of visitors scheduled for the next few months!! Last week Patsy, Sean and Aunt Ann came up for a quick visit. Patsy had a soccer tournament here and we were lucky enough to get to spend a couple of days together. The girls always love to be with their cousins and they certainly were not dissapointed. They got Sean and Patsy's undivided attention and lots of hugs and kisses!!!

The older cousins were sweet enough to play dress up!!!!

Lucky us!!!
