First Tee Ball game!

We have kicked off another season of tee ball! This little boy was super excited:


I love how excited he gets when he sees us. I pray he always will be!


It was a cold one! Harper wasn’t loving the cold at first:


Hudson up to bat! He is so into it this year, love it!


Check out that stance!

The sweet big girls took care of Harper and kept her entertained!


Post-game wrap up:


Our season is kind of spread out this year, so we didn’t have another game for a while. But, lots of practice in between!

Zoo date

5 year well check


Hud had his five year well check. Overall, it went well. He is physically and developmentally on track. The only hiccup was that he did not pass his hearing test.  This was quite a shock to me because he did pass it in November.  I ended up grilling our pedi (at a later date) because I was initially worried.  But, we have a follow up scheduled with our ENT and I am not overly worried anymore. I did the “whisper test” all weekend after the well check and he heard me every time (and our pedi said that is actually a good test). So, we will pray and hope everything is okay. I tell you, this boy and I have been through a lot over the past five years! :)

Height: 46 inches (90%)

Stroller skating!

On a whim, the kids and I had a fun adventure – skating! I took Hudson stroller skating when he was a baby, but we haven’t been since. Now that he is big enough to try it himself (sniff), I thought it would be fun. He loved it!

I was a little worried about Harper hanging in the stroller, since she is over it these days, but she did and enjoyed it!

Super fun Friday!

The last week of February…

This five year old makes me smile:


We got to meet a sweet new friend…and it resulted in one of my favorite pictures ever:


We hit the park on a beautiful, but chilly day:

We celebrated Sam:

and prayed for the teenage years:


This little lady and I had a shopping date:


And we visited Disney in our minds:


You can’t turn 5…


without the traditional number 5 pancake:

The day after…

We had a low-key day the next day.  Trent started painting Harper’s big girl room. He had an awesome helper:


Later the kids and I went outside to enjoy the beautiful day:


A kid learning to pump his own legs on the swing?


Hud and I started practicing some tball. He did awesome!

5th Birthday Party!

Hudson’s 5th birthday party! I asked Hudson what kind of party he wanted this year and he wanted it in the exact same place as last year. :) Easy and done. :)

This year we went with a Spider-man theme for my superhero loving boy:

So many of his sweet friends came and he had a great time celebrating! We are a lucky family to have such a wonderful village surrounding us! :)
