Rangers Game

The Texas Rangers had a couple of exhibition games in San Antonio at the Alamodome. My in-laws got us all some tickets to go. (Only bummer was that my mil got sick and couldn't come.)
We were pretty excited! The boys were really into the game...watching for fouls balls to catch. =) I was glad to see Cooper and Colton paying attention to the game since they are both in mid season for little league. It was a fun way to spend our Good Friday evening.

A member of  the U.S. Army North repelling team brought down the ball to throw out for the first pitch. So cool!

Rangers beat the Padres 5-4

Everything's more fun with cousins

Cooper's 1st grade program

Cooper had his 1st grade program on Tuesday night and it was so cute. It was a Texas theme so they sang some fun  songs about our great state. Even though I have heard Cooper bopping around the house belting out the songs for months now, he was very reserved as he sang them that night. He did a great job though! Always makes us so proud!

Mammy and Papa

Omi and Opi

The cafeteria was decorated with boots the kids designed. Here is Cooper's cool boot. =)

They loved this sweet bunny!!

Photo Flashback

This is seriously funny! My fourth grade class picture. I am sure you can spot my feathered bangs and terrible red shirt with lawn chairs on it(??), tucked in tightly to my high waisted jeans. Wow...just wow! My hubby is on the top row in a cool plaid shirt, second boy from the left, with his eyes closed. So funny because he has his eyes closed in lots of pictures as a kid and he still struggles with that issue. ;) Anyway, hilarious picture but pretty cute huh?

Side note: This is the year my hubby and I started "going together." He wrote me a note asking me to circle yes or no. We went together for two years. =) Then again in middle school for a while and finally again our senior year for forever!

No pinching!

Happy St.Patrick's Day...a little late. =)
Had to share a few snapshots I took of the boys on Sunday afternoon all dressed in their green. Can't pinch them. =)

Lake getaway

We spent the end of our Spring Break at a house on Lake LBJ. We had intended to stay in a cabin but some awesome coworkers of Cody's have a house right on the water and insisted we use it. So kind of them! It was so nice and a perfect set up for us.
We drove in Wednesday evening just in time to grab a yummy Mexican dinner and then watch a movie at the house. On Thursday we got up and headed to Longhorn Caverns. It was an hour and a half long tour with neat stories and formations. We all enjoyed it but toward the end Carter was ready to "get out of this cave."

After our tour, we did a little hike through the state park and did a little geocaching. If you haven't heard of this, you should try it. Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. The goal is to navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location.When you find the treasure, you can take what is inside and leave something behind or just sign the log book to say you were there. It is very cool. We found our geocache in a hole in a boulder. It was full of little trinkets. 

They were chatting away

Carter HAD to be the leader for a while

The necklace was one of the trinkets we took. We also took an army man and a plastic coin. Don't worry, we left something behind too. 

After some lunch, we headed back to the house to rest. Then the stomach bug hit poor Colton...hard. He threw up(and had other issues) and ran fever for the whole evening. While he was doing this....

Cody, Cooper and Carter were enjoying fishing and paddle boating on the lake.

I love this picture. It is so Cooper! 

I felt so sorry for Colton but luckily he woke up Friday morning a little low on energy but feeling  much better. 
We spent some time feeding the geese...

Paddle boating...

and blowing bubbles.

Then we went to visit a nearby fish hatchery but they were in an off season. We just piddled around and then headed out for ice cream before we got back on the road to head home. 
We had a great little getaway(besides the stomach bug part). I love, love, love getting away with my boys! 
We were so sad to see Spring Break end!!
