Spring Break

Last week was spring break for Wyatt school, Shane and I both took Thursday and Friday off and we had planned on going out of town but the weather had another plan and it turned cold and rainy, not my idea of spring break weather but hey what you gonna do. Instead we stayed here and just planned some fun local stuff to at least get us out of the house.

We started on Thursday with a trip to the bowling alley, the kids love it and I am sad to say even though Shane bowled all of his turns with his left hand or right handed with a ball that was to small for him due to his shoulder surgery, he still beat us all! They also have video games and bumper cars we spent a couple hours there and they had a blast.

Friday we headed to the farm where Shane and Wyatt hunt. It was still chilly but we bundled up and took a long walk in the woods.

notice the little bitty tag along trailing behind them? Yep that is Tuck he came along for fun.

He is so small this is where he was most of the time :)

He loved being all warm and snuggled in there and quickly fell asleep!

There is a very old cabin tucked back in the woods that we checked out, the thought of someone living there way back when is awesome. This farm is in the middle of a major part of town with the interstate not far from it now. I wish I could have seen it back in the days of when it was still standing.

Wyatt also snapped this one of Abby and her new favorite little man

Then Saturday and Sunday we spent the day extending our current fence to build the new wall of "I hate my neighbors and their nasty back yard."
This is our new view:

and we LOVE it. Now when we are out in the pool playing, working in the garden or just laying under the big tree in our hammock I no longer will have to look at them! :)

So even though our Spring Break didn't turn out as planned we had a great time and didn't spend alot of money and since we skipped this trip we are planning another trip back to Atlanta to see a Braves game as soon as our baseball season has a break.

Baseball time

So like I mentioned in my last post baseball has begun here in middle TN for my 2 kiddos. Wyatt is doing travel ball this year which is a big leap for us. Hubby and two other guys got together and decided that this was the year to take it on. So many boys their age have been playing travel ball for a couple of years but we didn't want him to get burned out at an early age. I was a little nervous about it but gave in after hubs and the other 2 guys decided to keep it local and not every weekend. So even though it is called travel ball we really aren't traveling, we only have 3 tournaments outside of the county we live in and those still are only like 45min away.

I have joked with Wyatt and told him when he hits it big in the MLB he owes us! We have racked up lots of hours, miles and $$$$ to further his baseball career, lets just hope it pays off someday :)

With all that being said he played his first tournament a couple weeks ago. They played 5 games over the weekend and he really seemed to love it. He gets along great with all the boys on his team and all the parents are great so I am really looking forward to a fun summer spent at the ball park.

He plays catcher sometimes, this is him behind the plate and just so happened to be one of his best buddies batting! He later went on to tag Brock out at home plate with an awesome dive at him as he was sliding into the plate, luckily Brock didn't hold it against him ;)

He also plays 2nd base

His team looks so great in their uniforms, the guys came up with a great team name and logo. So we will at least look like we got it all together :) I forgot to snap a pic of just Wyatt alone so I will have to post one of those later, maybe I will get a good one of Wyatt and Abby this Saturday after her game with them both in the ball uniforms.

Abby's first game is tonight and thus begins us going crazy over juggling two kids playing baseball at two different places, it has always been them at the same park. They both have a game on Saturday so looks like a divide and conquer Saturday for us! Shane is Abby's head coach so of course he has to be at her game which leaves me in charge of him.

Our Newset Addition

Over the weekend along with lots of baseball (I'll have more on that later) we managed to add another addition to our family. He is SO tiny, has the sweetest face with these big brown eyes and just like all babies he sleeps, eats, poops and wakes up all hours of the night.

I would like for you all to meet Tuck.

weighing in at a whopping 2.5lbs he stole our hearts the moment we saw him and we are in love:) He is technically Abby's puppy, he is her belated birthday present.

Yea yea for those of you keeping a tally we now have 4 dogs, but OMG how can you say NO to this?

Saturday night they were out in the garage AKA The Man Cave, Shane texted me and I went out to see this laying on the floor.

And it only got better

We are missing him today since Shane took him to work with him to get him checked out by the Dr. He got a clean bill of health so that makes me very happy. Oh and if you are wondering he is a wire hair Dachshund .
