Everyday Joys {Week 16}

This past week flew by!  I am sure you can see, Leyton and I had a lot of one on one time this week.  Here's a recap...

Sunshine and another day at the park.  {April 16}

Soccer Season has begun!

Last week was Rylan's first soccer practice and on Saturday, his first soccer game.  How it works here is that the team you played with in the fall is the same team you play with in the spring.  With that said, Rylan knew a few kids on his team.

Saturday, our energizer bunny was on fire!  He had goal after goal after goal.  I think part of the reason he likes soccer so much is because he gets to run!  Rylan does not mind getting into the mix of everyone going after the ball.

In fact, he is pretty relentless and will not give up unless he gets the ball.  I am not sure where he gets his determination from but it is pretty fun to watch him go up and down the field.

Overall, I think it was a great season opener.  I am sure I will have stories to tell from the season but I will wait to tell them at a later date...but one thing is for sure,  this soccer player is excited to be playing again!

On a side note, if you are wondering where Holden was on Saturday, he had baseball practice on another field at the same time as Rylan's game.  His baseball season opener is this weekend!  Don't worry, I am sure I will have pictures from that next week.  Finally, spring activities and sports are underway.  Now, if the weather would just warm up I would be extremely grateful!!!!

Oh glorious day.  {April 10}

It was a perfect day for the zoo.  {April 11}

Little slugger.  {April 12}

Monday just got a little sweeter.  {April 13}

I am sure Leyton is a little young to be learning lacrosse but whatever his brothers are into, he is into as well. {April 14}

Tonight was Rylan's first spring soccer practice and he could not have been happier! {April 15}

Weekend Recap...

This past weekend, Holden had his baseball practiced moved from Friday night to Saturday morning. Which meant, we kind of had a free night.  We decided to let Holden cash in on his NCAA Tournament Bracket win.  As a family we have a contest each year to see who will will the NCAA Basketball Tournament and this year it was Holden.  His pick we where we go to dinner as a family.  Out of all of the places, he picks Chick-Fila! Why, because he wanted a milkshake!  Ha, it was a pretty exciting Friday night.

Saturday morning Holden's practice had been moved to Sunday since the fields were still wet.  Well, we took advantage of our springlike temperatures and headed to the zoo.  Well, us and every other person in Madison!

But despite being crowded, we had a fun day.  The boys enjoyed all of the animals.

I love looking from Leyton's view sometime just to see what he thinks.


Leyton loved the giraffes and Holden and Rylan love the tiger.

It was nice to finally be able to get outside, and not freeze!

After Holden's practice on Sunday, he went over to a friends house for the afternoon.

Rylan was out running around with his buddies at the park and Leyton enjoyed some one on one baseball time with his daddy.  It was extremely windy but this little guy did not seem to mind it much.

I just love his expressions.

Not a very exciting weekend but a fun one to say the least.
