Super Sized Saturday

Today was one of those days where we went nonstop from the time we got up until bedtime.

It started with us cleaning up this mess from Tuesday's storm.
We lost 3 trees, so Matt got a trailer and hauled them off after cutting them up.

We had just been talking about having these exact 3 trees cut down, because they never bounced back after the past couple years' drought and ice storms. We were so fortunate that none of them were by our house, so we had no damage from them.

Next, we finally got to play our first t-ball game after being rained out last week.

Lee is #4, which he still says is his favorite number.

Paul is #8.

Getting a little play in the in-field

Paul got a hit the first time he swung!

He was so excited and wanted to make sure his fan club was watching.

Here he is sliding home with his best pal waiting for him.

Then it was Lee's turn to bat again. He got another great hit.

I love to watch him run with his goofy little style. I'm pretty sure he got this "Phoebe-style" of running from me.

He has to jump on each base when he gets there.

"Did ya see that, Mom?"

And for Lee's grand finale....the slide into home,

which is his very favorite part of the game.

He is filthy and so proud of himself!
It's going to be a GREAT season!

After the game, we headed to Paul's 6th Birthday party. The kids are lined up for an egg hunt.

And they're off!

This never gets old to Lee. I don't think he even cares what is in them. He just loves the hunt.

Wade found some, too. He may or may not have been assaulted by some aggressive Kindergartners, and Mommy may or may not have had to intervene.

After those pesky big kids left, and he was out of danger, he went in search for more.

Paul's theme was dinosaurs, so he had these cool dino-shaped eggs. Lee loved them!

Awesome dino cake

Time for cake and singing

This little guy took a short nap after the egg hunt, but he woke up when he heard someone mention ice cream!

Here is my other cake and ice cream lover.

So glad he got his Mommy's sweet tooth, so we can share!

More ice cream please!

After we left the party, the big boys brought Wade and me home, and they left immediately for the World's Biggest Fish Fry Kickoff at the fairgrounds and watched the demolition derby. It was Lee's first one, and I'm pretty sure he is hooked. Wade finally collapsed at 8:00, and Matt and Lee were in bed around 10:15. Now that's a super sized Saturday!
