We had a little fun trying out something new this week. Took Bella to a cheer clinic. Of course, she's in love and wants to go back. But, it might have to wait another year. Between dance, baseball, basketball, and well, everything in between....this momma is in over her head.
Happiest of birthdays to my oldest. Time is just flying by, and I wish I could make it stop. But at the same time, I look forward to watching him grow. He has so much in store for his future.
I took a lot of pictures this week. Easter kicked off Spring Break, which is sadly over as I type this. Choosing one picture of the week was tough; but I absolutely love this picture of my mom with 5 of her 6 grand babies.
Another memorable Easter in the books. We kept up tradition and started at church with Mimi and Aunt Jodi. We decided to sleep in and missed the brunch. We realized in hindsight it wasn't worth it and will go back to attending the earlier service next year. Although we did get more time to enjoy the Easter baskets.
Bella woke up before all of us and repeatedly checked all the doors/porches to see if the Easter bunny had arrived. She had finally driven Josh & I crazy, so as soon as we got up, ironically the bunny made his visit!
I sure do love how much she loves life and keeps all of the holidays fun. She is super dramatic and gets so excited. The boys, especially Jackson, are getting a little too old for some things. But we all love to watch her experience it all. She opened the front door for maybe the 15th time and let out a screech.
Jack was not yet awake and probably would have been ok if he missed out on this, but Bella would have none of that and made sure he was up.
Here's the group photo. We are missing quite a few this year, including our extended "family" that usually joins us. I am amazed at how tall Jackson looks here. I was wearing 2 inch heels!
It was Cam's idea to wear his bowtie. He loves it and always has to wear Josh's Oakley's to complete the outfit. Bella and I had just gotten fresh haircuts.
After church, we went over the grandparents house for our annual Easter egg hunt. They hide different colored eggs for each kid so it's fair. This year, though, Pop Pop made it harder. We all had to pitch in to help Jackson find his last 2 eggs.
Bella has been wanting to wear my glasses lately. The Easter bunny brought her her very own pair.
Then we went back inside for a mini scavenger hunt that ended with the kids finding their hidden baskets.
Shortly after this picture was taken, Bella said she had a headache and wanted to lay down. She ended the evening with a mild fever and threw up in the driveway as we were leaving. Never a dull moment in this family.
And then the annual cousins photo.
It's that time of year again!! This one turned 11 on Friday. They had the day off from school. He woke up on his birthday around 6 a.m. because he was "excited" and couldn't sleep. Honey & Pop Pop treated him and Jackson to lunch at Hooters. Then it was bowling and a sleepover with his closest buds. Instead of cake, it was Krispy Kreme donuts by request. A good time was had by all.
Spring 11U season has started. It was not baseball weather., but baseball didn't care. This weekend kicked off our first tournament. We won 2, tied 1 and finished 1st in the Silver Bracket. Cam got to pitch and did very well.
This is his last year before he enters middle school and things really take off.
And Bella pretended she was the beach and built sand castles out of baseball clay with Lexi and Carter.
Where was Jack, you might ask?
At home, sleeping in and playing Fortnite, of course.
My name is Kaci. I am a working mom of 3. Wife to Josh. Mom to Jackson, Cameron & Isabella. My life is dinner, homework, baseball, basketball, grocery lists, laundry, wine, video games, and bath time. I started this blog because I am passionate about photography and journaling, and because I wanted a place to write it all down, to rememeber little details so easily forgotten in the mad rush that is the life of a family of 5. Through my photos and words, I endeavor to capture our story.
