Saturday morning was Ari's first baseball game!
Her first at bat she missed all three of the coach's pitches and then got a hit on the tee. She was so proud of her hit that she just stood there until the umpire told her she needed to drop the bat and start running.
Roo got a hit during the coach's pitches during her second at bat and made it safely to first! The next player moved her on to second base. Here she is pretending that her shoes are "getting struck by lightning!"
Made it safely to second base- "Hi, Mommy!" She made it to third, and then they ended the game :(
After the game, I made Trisha Yearwood's coconut cake with Nilla wafers! A-mah-zing!
We watched the original Beauty and the Beast to prep for our trip to the movies the next day.
Robert and I had the rare date night and enjoyed a meal at an Italian restaurant and then grocery shopping! We're super romantic like that! We picked up some limited edition lemon ice cream sandwiches, and OMG- amazing! I know ice cream makes me sick, but I had to- they were so good! On Sunday, we picked the kids up from their sleepover and headed to see the new Beauty and the Beast.
So, my thoughts: Beauty and the Beast is my favorite Disney movie, so of course I was pumped for the new one to come out. Considering that the characters are humans turned into a beast and housewares, Disney did the best they could, but it was still kind of weird (and insanely long- I nodded a few times!) They stayed with the story other than a few additional scenes and songs, but I was super disappointed in the singing. The only person who I felt did a good job singing was the actor who played Gaston. Everyone else sounded pretty high school musical. If you haven't seen it yet, I'd say wait until Redbox.
We came home to do our usual chores, and I got some meals pre-cooked for the week ahead. The kids are taking swim lessons after school this week to prep for swim team season, and we're counting the days until Easter break. I hope you have a great week ahead of you- meet me back here tomorrow for our next Tuesday Training workout! See you soon!
