White House Easter Egg Roll!

Thanks to Deb, we were lucky enough to get tickets to go to the White House Easter Egg Roll! It was a once in a lifetime experience but I am not sure I would do it again!

First off it was 90 degrees and 100% humidity. Secondly it was soooo crowed and I felt like a sardine! And, thirdly we arrived at our designated time, 11:15 am and did not get on to the White House grounds until 12:40 pm!

Once inside the gate it wasn't so bad and we were glad we went.

Xavier's 1st T-Ball Game and Opening Day Ceremony

Today was Xavier's first t-ball game and opening day for South County Little League. The day started off with a "Parade of Teams" at the Opening Day Ceremony. Congressman Jerry Connolly gave a speech and threw out the first pitch.

Later in the day Xavier had his 1st game against the Sandgnats. It was so cute to see them in action. When someone hit the ball it was a race to get to the ball and then it looked like were at a wrestling match!.

Xavier was the catcher and he loved putting all the gear on and getting down in the dirt; although he had trouble bending over to get the ball because the mask kept falling off.
