A Baseball Players Dream Come True

What could be possibly be better than hitting a grand slam??
Watch the video, it looks like the right fielder caught the ball when he jumped up and everyone is saying he got robbed, then as Ryan comes toward second base the Ump is circling his hand in the air indicating the home run, the ball went over the kids glove and we couldn't see it happen.

Alyssa, the cake decorator

Alyssa found something new that she likes to do. Cake Decorating! She had a mutual activity where they learned to decorate cakes and she decided that it was quite fun. She has now declared herself the official cake decorator as well as cake baker.

What's the fun of cutting your cake if you cannot lick the frosting off of the knife?

Happy Easter!!

Thanks Ashley for the dyed egg, a perfect picture to start off the memories of family captured today.

Easter Baskets for Justin, Ryan and Alyssa.
(The Easter Bunny was unable to locate the box with their baskets in it and all the other fun decorations)

Of course, the only picture of me is when I sat down to eat. --I guess that is not quite true, there are several of me holding Alexis, you just don't see my face.
Kenny also got a chance to sit and eat after Bar-B-Que'ing
I think Shaun got lucky and finished dinner before getting his picture snapped.
KeriAnne got caught eating also.
Justin and Ryan sitting at the table after finishing their dinner (are we seeing a pattern about food and holidays?)
oops, not a one picture got taken of Alyssa, she must have been hiding which is unusual, she usually is in most of the pictures.
Bethany is away at BYU, so no pictures of her, She will be home for the weekend in two weeks and we will try to get a family picture taken then.

P.S.S. Alyssa just informed me that the reason she is not in any of the pictures is because I ordered her to take pictures!!!!!!!

More Baseball

Ryan loves to steal a base and will try at any chance he gets. He is very successful at it, but today he didn't fare so well. Jesse hit the ball right to the 2nd baseman, he got Ryan out and turned it into a double and got Jesse out as well, It was a good double play, unfortunately it was against us. We ended up winning the game Mesa 6 Mtn. View 5.

Sports and Alyssa

My dear busy daughter keeps us running from one activity to the next. Alyssa always has her hands in any activity that comes her way. YW volleyball, school track and field, club swimming, bowling league, piano, band, friends and school all seem to fit into her days.
Alyssa participated in the All City Track and field meet, took first place in discus, then ran immediately to her band concert. Shorts and T-shirt to church dress in a few minutes and she is equally at ease in either.

One busy day last week had her up at 6:30 am, off to school at 8, home from school at 4, swim practice from 4:15-6:30, volleyball from 7-9 pm, and then homework, to bed and then to start over again the next morning.

This morning brought an early morning cold and windy swim meet, then straight to bowling. Bowling has been a daddy/daughter activity, but I really need to go and get some pictures of her bowling.
