Happy Easter!

Happy Easter! The Hollingsworth Family made our annual pilgrimage to Jackson for the 2 Family Reunions we attend every year. The kids had a blast and we had wonderful weather, food, and company! The kids loved huntung for eggs, and Jesse found the "money egg" at the Hare Family Reunion. Great times were had by all!

Hard to believe....our Jesse turned 10!

Well, Jesse has turned ten...where has the time gone? Well, Jesse has had a great Birthday surrounded by family and friends! Jesse blowing out his candles as cousin Gracie peeks in!
Opening gifts from Nana & Paw Paw as everyone looks on.
Jesse's Birthday Party cupcakes Claire and I made for him.
Jesse has become quite the photographer, and on his Birthday, he spotted this skink outside. He he loves snapping pictures when our skinks are out. This was taken on a sunny afternoon.....
Well, Jesse had his #10 at the Fed Ex Park where the U of M Tigers play baseball. All the kids at the party got to run on the field with the team at their positions and stand with them for the National Anthem. Jesse got to throw out the 1st pitch! Great times!
The entire Birthday Party Group got the outfield deck and we not only had a great view, but had the entire thing to ourselves!

Lots of games were played during the party, with the favorite being water balloon baseball. The kids got soaked, and had a blast doing it!
Cousin Peytin in action getting ready to bust up a water balloon!!
Jesse enjoying each and every card his friends and family gave him. We are truly blessed with such wonderful friends and family around us!

Full Speed Ahead in April!

Well, April has started off with a bang here in Bartlett. Lance's team is just getting started up with baseball, and came in 2nd place in their 1st tournament of the season. They did great, despite only a few practices due to all the rain we've had lately! Go Tigers!

This is what a tired, dirty, and hungry little girl looks like after a weekend of ball games!
Jesse ready to bat!
Jesse had a very difficuly week last week, as he said goodbye to 2 of his best friends. Our friends and neighbors of 9 years moved to Washington, DC last week. Jesse was sad to see them go, but who knows, maybe we'l plan a visit to DC??? Never been there.....would be such an educational and fun trip!

Well, lots going on in April.....will post again very soon! Gretchen
