life lately

Saturday was opening day of baseball for Bryce.  We were up and at the field early for pictures at 8:00 that morning.  We didn't have breakfast beforehand so we headed to the bakery after pictures.
After donuts, we were back at the field for opening day ceremonies.  One of Bryce's classmates plays softball and they ran into each other and had quite a good time.  Bryce was chasing her in an attempt to get his hat back.  Oh, young love!

Naturally, I didn't take any pictures of his first game, but that followed the opening ceremonies.  After baseball, we came home and worked in the yard and then put together an impromptu cookout with our neighbors.  We had camping food leftover so we got a fire in the fire pit going and roasted hot dogs and marshmallows.  Emmy took these pictures! 

Fun times with this one! 

The kids let us sleep in on Sunday morning, but I still managed to get up and dressed in time to check out Lilly at Target.  I should have known it would have been a mini black Friday, but I had no clue.  I got there about 15 minutes after the store opened to find that most everything was gone.  I was able to snag this cute piece for Emmy though!

My MOPs group had a Moms Night Out at Spirited Art on Monday night.  I was excited to finally do a monogram painting.  All of the girls in my group decided that 3 letters was too much work and we all went with just one, ha!  As simple as the painting looked, it was actually kind of difficult, mostly because I'm not good at straight line!

I had intended for my colors to be navy and coral.  It's more like black and red.  Not only am I not a painter, I'm not a color mixer!  Oh well, I had already decided to put it in my bedroom closet so at least no on will see it but me and Jason! 

Jason's cousin's kids come over before school in the mornings and I've been keeping them busy doing perler fuse beads.  Even Emmy loves it and it's great for fine motor development.

My Nanny loves a frosty from Wendy's and some little lady has followed in that love.  She convinced Nana to take her to get one yesterday.  Nanny got one too!

Happy hump day!

I like your monogram and can tell it's navy and coral in the close-up picture!

You have quite the little athlete there--and something tells me you might end up with two!

Your picture is very pretty, you always stress about the painting, and it always comes out great :)
