Pre baseball practice donuts

We went a little crazy with sports this year.  Ok, just having 4 kids makes sports crazy.  Tanner wanted to play soccer, Carden signed up for football and David played baseball and mom drove everyone everywhere and then drove herself crazy.  

We tried to make life easier by not driving home after school, just to immediately drive back out to the same area for practice.  So we discovered lots of parks and Dunkin' Donuts became our favorite donut shop.  OK, any donut shop is our favorite. 

David loved, loved baseball and really improved.  He started coach pitch and could hit the ball before he stuck out almost every time.  

Tanner only wanted to play soccer for the snacks and he lucked out because he joined a team that was crazy ridiculous about the snacks.  A 30 minutes soccer game had to have 2 separate parents bring treats.  One time he came home with a gatorade, a chocolate milk, a donut, a cutie tangerine, and a pack of the grandma's frosted animal crackers.  All for walking around a field and following the crowd.  He didn't even want to play soccer, he threw fits about it until snack time.  Nice. Oh, and then the coach went a-wall and took all of the medals and pictures never to be heard of again.  Crazy.

Carden played football and had an awesome coach and team and then broke his collarbone within the first half of the first game.  So then he was out for the rest of the season.  Poor kid.  I know I have pictures of these kids somewhere, but all I can find is the donut shop.




Tanner pretty much just eats the frosting.  They should just sell a cup of that, rather than buying a donut for him.



Chloe had a rough month-March 2017


After six ear infections between August 2016 and March 2017, we decided it was time for tubes.  And even though she's had two infections since the tubes, it's already way better.  Poor girl is just like David and is chronically sick.  

Here we are in the waiting room.  We were the first surgery of the day and I got there at 6 am with a tired and hungry baby. And then we waited and waited and waited.  Surgery was scheduled for 7, the anesthesiologist never showed.  So some other doctor came in and finally took care of us around 8:30.   Chloe was not loving this at all. 

She did entertain herself by going through my purse though.  One of her favorite activities and most likely the reason I am currently missing my credit card.



We also made a cabin trip in March.  Everyone was loving it, super fun time with Grammy.  We went for a walk in the woods, it was too hard to push the stroller so I carried Chloe until she wanted to walk.  So I put her down and it took about 30 seconds for her to find the one cactus within 50 feet of us and fall right in it.  

Poor girl, she was covered in quills.  I pulled them out of her arms, her legs, her bum cheeks. Everywhere.  It was not a fun experience and I hope to never repeat it.

Good girl!

You ate all of your dinner!



Oh. Never mind. 


Don't let that face fool you. 

Discover the Dinosaurs

I got free tickets to this Dinosaur thing in Phoenix.  It was fun since it was free, but if we had paid money for it ($20/kid) I would have been so mad.  The kids did like it though. 











Oh, Carden

Trying to pull a fast one on the tooth fairy.  Little stinker. I don't know if he got it or not, but I did find the note crumpled up in the bathroom the next morning...


Happy Easter egg hunT

I only got pictures of these two, Carden and David are too big and fast for me to follow around the field :) Tanner was so excited for the hunt and Chloe was mostly confused.  She was just happy with one empty egg to take apart over and over. 









We didn't really do too many of the activities, but David did want to do the trampoline.  He was so proud of himself for doing a back flip :)

Cheesiest smile. We love it :)







Messes make me happy!




Zoo trip!

When all your kids are in the car to go to soccer but they cancel the games because of rainm then you keep on driving to the zoo! It was cold but so fun! The rainy days are when the animals are active, so we got to see lots this trip. 











IDEA Museum

I really need to take these two more often.  They loved it so much.  Such a fun museum for little kids!
