As I said in my last post about club baseball the boys teams have been split. Spencer plays on the AAA team and the AA team (Also called Raptor's Gold) and Ethan plays exclusively for the AA team. Well this past weekend we played a Raptor's Gold (AA) tournament. I always love watching both the boys play together. I love hearing others talk about the boys and how much they look and act alike. I just think they are so dang cute.

It doesn't help that he is a giant! He is with kids his own age and older but he looks like he at least a year or two older than any of the other kids. It is comical to look out and see him sticking out over everyone else.

Today Dan & I took Ryleigh to the Diamondbacks game...and by today I mean currently....I am using my handy blogger app on my iPhone to post this during the game. We are at the top of the 6th right now and the Diamondbacks are down 1-0. Ryleigh, our little Philly fan is happy, I am anxiously awaiting the time when Hamels gets tired and they have to go to the bullpen.

When we went to register Ryleigh at the her new junior high we noticed that their softball season was just about to start! Tryouts were that week. So she signed up to tryout and she made it! Unfortunately she seems to have an injury so she is getting very limited play time right now. She has an appointment to see the doctor on May 1st, so lets keep our fingers crossed that it is just a muscle strain or something.

At the beginning of the year we had enough players that the team needed to be split. They created a "Raptor's Gold" team, this team consists of the players that need just a little bit more practice than some of the other - older players. Ethan was moved to the Raptor's Gold team and Spencer stayed with the orginal Raptor's team. Spencer still plays tournaments with the Raptor's Gold since Dan is helping to coach both teams so it just makes sense to have Spencer there too, plus this gives him a chance to work on things that need a little more improvement - like his pitching.

As I've mentioned before, Once a month all the girls in my family (that live in AZ) get together for lunch. We rotate houses each month so someone new makes us something yummy. It's a great time to socialize and become good friends. It's super fun and I realize how wonderfully unique it is, for not only me to have such a close relationship with my cousins but for my children to have such a close relationship with my cousins children.

This month Aunt Cori was actually down visiting from Utah! It was really fun to have her here for Girls lunch! We couldn't pass up the opportunity to get a group shot. (Now that I have seen this shirt in a picture I don't know if I can every wear it again... no, it's not maternity and no, I am not pregnant)

Soo... I can't believe that it is Easter already! Where is time going!? Before I know it the kids are going to be out of school (which I am also excited for because we renewed our Sunsplash Season passes! woohoo!) Aparently the Easter Bunny was also thinking it was already summer because he hooked the kids up with some swim suits this year! I am grateful because they needed them, plus I am not really a fan of all the candy. bleck! The kids all seemed pleased with it too!
