Last game of the season

Tonight was Jared's last baseball game of the season. He did great this season! He had a bunch of fun and silly (and athletic too!) boys on his team. Even some from his school and class on his team. Driving home this evening he said he had fun playing baseball this season. I'm glad he had fun! That's what it's all about!!

First time eating out at Costco

I remember, BQ ("Before Quads"), when Jared and I would occasionally "shop" around Costco and then grab lunch there at their "food court." It's super cheap and yummy! Like $1.50 for a 1/4lb hot dog AND a refillable soda?! Or $1.99 for a HUMONGUS slice of pizza?! And let's not forget their yummy, yet also cheap, desserts...a whole buck for a HUGE churro or $1.50 for a GINORMOUS chocolate-dipped ice cream bars?! Okay, I digress on the yummies ;) I think both Jared and I enjoyed the 1:1 time we had. I know he enjoyed it (for the fact that he still talks about it ;) ). Well, today was the first time I ate lunch out at Costco WITH THE GIRLIES! Woo hoo! I do have to point out that my mom came with us (thanks again Mom!). We did the usual "shop around" a bit and then it neared our lunch time so we grabbed lunch there. The girlies were PERFECT! To the point of people coming up to me and saying "your girls are too cute and SO well behaved!" Thanks for the sweet comments, folks!

Suzan and Bethany munching down on their cut-up hot dog. Yeah, Bethany being a smiley goofball, as usual, and Suz had a mouthful ;)Brielle and Anna eating tooWill this be the last time we eat out at Costco with the girlies? Probably not. I don't know if we will make a regular habit about it but an occasional "hey, let's go bum around Costco and then grab lunch" kind of thing. The girlies are getting to the point that they LOVE (and that is an understatement...they loudly squeal for "shoes!" "socks!" and "outside!" all the time now!) to get out and about now, wherever it may be. I'm happy that the girlies are old enough (and I'm more confident!) now to take out to places. And, most of all, they LOVE it! :D

Caught with Character

This morning Jared was recognized and received an award at school, a Character award. He was very excited (and still is ;) ) about his award. I'm glad we were both there to witness his achievement. Way to go Jared! We praise God for what an awesome, caring, smart, loving and generous little boy you are!!

On his award it reads "Jared is a good friend who is always first to help someone out. He is kind, fair and loyal."

Tea Time with Brother

We got the girlies 2 tea sets for their 2nd birthday. They enjoy playing with them, pretending to have tea. But best of all, Jared enjoys having "tea time" with his sisters. He actually asks us all the time if he can have tea time with the girlies. Awe! So, we fill up the tea pots with water and he acts as server, pouring each sister a bit of "tea" into her tea cup. It's so cute to see our 5 kids play together like this!
