Bronco and Baseball

Bronco has been asking to take lessons ever since we signed Hadlie up for dance lessons. So, when I saw a sign-up for spring baseball, I decided to give it a try. I really didn't know what to expect because he is only three and the youngest one on the team. However, he loves it and constantly wants to practice batting and catching. Even though it can be frustrating watching these little kids play, they are very cute and funny. The first game he stopped before he got to first base because he said another little boy was standing on the base and so he couldn't go there. His favorite part is what he calls the baseball running game (running the bases). Even though he mostly plays with the dirt when he isn't at bat, he seems to be having a great time. He had his second game last week and he was able to hit both times at bat without using the tee. He was so proud of himself. We are just keeping our fingers crossed that the weather will only warm up so we don't have to wear coats and scarves to the games.

Even though Easter was almost two weeks ago, we had a great day. Easter morning actually lasted a full thirteen minutes at our house (as Judd noted by the coverage on the video camera). I don't know if the kids loved finding their eggs or if they were a little annoyed, but they were good sports. We colored eggs for the first time on Saturday and the kids and Judd thought it was great. On Sunday, we went to church with my parents because we had Stake Conference. Since Judd considers Stake Conference a day off, I figured we had better go to church being it was Easter Sunday. We ended the day with another delicious dinner at my parents with all of my siblings. While trying to find Easter outfits for the kids, Bronco felt a little left out because Hadlie had to get a sweater and matching shoes. So, while we were shopping for him a new shirt/sweater he found some matching socks. He was thrilled to say the least. When we sat down for Sacrament, his socks were the first things he wanted everyone to see. Barely awake and coherent
