bunnies, eggs, and Easter

The annual visit to see the bunnies at Phillip's

Cal and Lilly
Lilly's class egg hunt and party at school

Ellie and Lilly

We had a little egg-dyeing party at our house for a few friends. It was fun and I plan on making it bigger and better next year :)

Mamie was the first one up

and then she woke up Lilly to share in the Easter basket fun

The big hit was the rocket balloons. They have had so much fun with them.

Before church. I could either have shadows on their faces, or have them both squinting their eyes shut in the sun.

CJ and Pop were here for Easter this year. But no daddy. He had to work :(

We went to my cousins' farm after church for lunch and and egg hunt for all the kids.

Mamie and Lexi. I love how their dresses looked like they coordinated.

Almost all of the kids were there--minus the ones in Arkansas and Oklahoma :(

Ready for the egg hunt to begin!

Happy Easter!

softball 101

This spring, Lilly started softball. This is our first family athletic experience, and we had no idea what to expect from Lilly. We kept trying to talk her into soccer, and all she wanted to play was "baseball." When I found out that Emily and Jeremy were coaching a team, we signed her up. It's been so cute seeing her and Jon practicing in the backyard. She has been so excited about practices and had her first game last week. I'm really glad they didn't keep score. We were playing a serious team that looked like they had been playing for a few years compared to our girls. Luckily, I think the parents were the only ones who noticed and all the girls had fun. I think Lilly is more excited about her cleats, visor, and uniform than the game (She was pretty disappointed when she found out that their colors were black and gold. I think she was expecting pink uniforms.).
Ready for her first game ever :)

Lilly up to bat for the first time. Her little legs look so tiny anyway, but that huge helmet on her head makes her look even smaller!
