One of the things keeping us very busy this month has been Peyton's baseball. He's finally playing real, kid pitch baseball and it's been so much fun to watch the games. Ben's been working with him a lot and he's been doing really well, I'm so proud of his progress. His team is the Rivercats and his coach is so great, having a good coach at this age makes all the difference. He isn't a huge fan of playing outfield, last game he took his entire bag of seeds out there and just chilled and ate seeds! It was driving me crazy that he wasn't paying attention, having a picnic out there but I didn't want to be the crazy mom yelling at her child so I just bit my tongue until he came into the dug out. I love spring and watching baseball, I guess that's a good thing considering I have three boys.

Easter Sunday

Ava's Special Daddy Daughter Day

Ben surprised Ava with tickets to Disney Princesses on ice. She was so excited and as you can see wanted to dress up as Ariel. We try to spend one on one time with each of the kids every other month or so- they absolutely love their time alone with us. Ava especially loves to go with Ben, and what a champ for braving princesses on ice. He's such a great Dad and a good role model as to what a husband should be. I hope Ava marry's a great man just like her Dad someday. I just can't believe he gave in to the $12 snow cone. Those of you who know Ben know he's so frugal and financially conservative, I guess he just can't say no to his little girl.
