Boy, did we have a crazy weekend! Saturday was Connor's opening day for tee-ball. What a fun day; he participated in a little parade, where all the teams marched onto the field. The mascot for our local baseball team, Champ, was there as well, and all the kids were really excited! The opening day was a "hit-a-thon" where the kids collected pledges based upon how far they could hit a baseball. It was a good time, but it was a LOT of waiting for the kids. They batted in alphabetical order by team name. Connor is on the Pirates. Yeah, "P".
Saturday was also the maple festival. Not ones to miss a good maple festival we left the opening day and headed right over! The maple festival is one of my favorite things. As Al pointed out, though, it's not really 'mapley'. I think it has more to do with being an unofficial start to spring and warm weather. Or, maybe it's just an excuse to eat really bad for you food, who knows! But, they have rides, and maple cotton candy, so it's a good time!
Okay, check out how much they've grown: The first picture is last year, then this year.
Is that not scary?!?
Saturday we also had company. Shane and Marcia came to visit with their daughter Marina. Shane is an old college friend of mine, and Connor's godfather. Marcia is his wife. We were not able to see them over the holidays, so we also exchanged Christmas gifts. That was fun! As usual, they spoiled Connor! (They take their role of Godparent very seriously!) Anyway, we had a great time with them. They left Sunday morning.
Marina and Aisling look shockingly alike!
Sunday, we rested! Well, most of us. I went into church to teach Sunday school, and everyone else stayed home. I am about to go run on the treadmill. (Shane and Marcia are really good cooks......) The kids are both sleeping, Wyatt is hanging out VERY peacefully and happily! And Al is getting some work done. I think some of that involves cleaning the basement. With Shane comes cigars....... oh well!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
