Weekend and Sunshine!

After weeks of rain, we finally received some much needed sunshine this weekend! All week we promised the boys that if the weather was nice on Friday, we would roast marshmallows in the fire pit. Thankfully, the weather cooperated and we were able to "fire" it up. We started a little early since both Holden and Rylan had been playing outside all afternoon I knew if we waited too late we would have two tired little boys in the morning, which is never fun. We roasted marshmallows and s'mores in our new handy s'more gadget. And as expected, every time I looked at Rylan he had another s'more in his hand and chocolate covering his face. Yum!

They were messy but fun.

Saturday morning after Holden's soccer game, we headed over to one of our favorite baseball fields, Praco Park to watch the NCCAA World Series. The boys love the blow ups just as much as they love watching the baseball game. We met up with some friends to watch the game and enjoyed some baseball favorites..hot dogs and ice cream of course. I just loved their reactions during the game! After watching the game, the boys decided it was time for them to practice their personal baseball pitching and hitting in the kids area. I think I see three future ball players, don't you! I do not think we could have asked for better weather on Saturday. A perfect day to spend at the ball park, if you ask me!

Before the clouds and rain settled back in today, we finished up some much needed yard work and planting. We added some of our southern favorites to the yard, hydrangeas, roses, and peonies. Finally after a long winter and weeks of rain, we were able to enjoy the great outdoors all weekend. I just hope it lasts! Now we are all looking forward to to warmer temperatures and the boys upcoming summer break.
