We Won!!

What a beautiful day!! The weather was perfect for Opening Day and the parade. Chase had a blast jumping in the Spacewalks while I volunteered my services at the bbq stand. (Yum!) My DH ended up with a very red forehead, but we all had a really good time. I even got a few "Hey Mrs. Addisons" from some students I ran into! Cute!!

This is Chase's third year playing baseball. Tonight was his first game of the season and he's now in a league where they keep score/outs/strikes, etc. It was SO exciting. I always said I wasn't going to be 'that' parent, and for the most part I just sit back and observe. Chase did great and brought in the run that tied the game. We won 18-17! It was very exciting and I'm very proud of my boy!!

I hope everyone has a great Easter tomorrow! We have another full day including an egg hunt with friends! I was making Chase's Easter basket this morning and got very sentimental. So many memories from my childhood came flooding back. My dad was always a fan of any type of candy, but Peeps were probably his all time favorite. I don't care for them myself, but I had to pick some up when I was shopping earlier this week. My childhood Easter baskets were like a work of art, and they were always lined with tons and tons of Peeps. Tomorrow morning Chase will find his basket lined with Peeps, and a story from Mommy about how Peeps were Pop Pops favorite Easter candy. Maybe he will love them too, and the traditional will continue. Happy Easter!!

Look at you blog! ;)
I did not know all these details about Chase's game! That's awesome. We need to bring Charlie and help cheer him on some time.
I love the Peeps story. We should start leaving them out on the counter for the Eater Bunny. :)
Love you.
