The Grove Bowl

Saturday we made the trip to Oxford for the spring football game and some Rebel baseball. It was a cool day, so we decided to leave Catherine at home with Puppy. We arrived in Oxford around lunch time and went to Old Venice to eat. This is one of my favorite restaurants in Oxford, and it was delicious! Then we went to the Red and Blue game. We got there at halftime and watched the second half.

The wind was pretty chilly. I was glad we brought a blanket to wrap up in!

After the football game we walked over to the baseball stadium. We got to see the end of the Friday night game that got rained out in the 4th inning and the whole second game. We won both games against Arkansas! The sun came out, too, which was nice!

Before we left Oxford, we went over to Kevin and Jill's and had a good visit with them. It was a wonderful Saturday in Oxford!

Happy 1/2 Birthday, Catherine!

On April 15th Catherine turned 6 months old! This is such a fun age and we are enjoying every minute with our baby girl. Her stats from her 6-month appointment were weight 17 lbs 13.5 oz (81%) and height 27.5 in (97%). We are so thankful for a healthy, growing girl!

Catherine is rolling over now, and she can sit up by herself for long periods of time. She loves to sit in the floor and play with her toys.

Catherine loves her big sister so much. Caroline is so sweet to Catherine and will sit in the floor with her and play with her.

She stills loves her exersaucer, too!

After her 6-month birthday, we started feeding her baby food. Caroline was so excited that Catherine was going to get to eat some food! We started out with carrots, and she did great with them. She ate half a jar of carrots the first time we fed her!

She wasn't quite sure what she was tasting!

I have to include a few pictures of the sweetest big sister I know! These were taken on the day of school pictures. I cannot believe Caroline will be 4 next month!

Easter Sunday

We started off Easter Sunday by giving the girls their Easter baskets. Caroline woke up before Catherine and could not wait to see what was in her basket.

I think Caroline was more excited to help Catherine go through her Easter basket!

After that we got ready to go to church, and I took a few pictures of the girls before we left. Catherine is wearing Caroline's first Easter dress.

We had a wonderful morning at church celebrating our risen Savior. After church, we went to Winnie and Granddaddy's house for Easter lunch.

After lunch, we went outside to take some family pictures.

I love this picture of me and my girls!

I love this one, too!

Later that afternoon we went to Puppy and Granddaddy's house for Easter dinner. We ate more delicious food, hunted more eggs, and had a great time visiting with family!

It was such a special day spent celebrating the resurrection of our Lord Jesus and our living hope found in Him.

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In His great mercy He has given us a new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead and into our inheritance that can never perish, spoil, or fade."
I Peter 1:3-4

More Easter Fun

Caroline was so excited about her school Easter party and egg hunt. She was very surprised and happy when her Daddy showed up at the party!

Due to rain the egg hunt was moved inside to their classroom

On Good Friday, Caroline went to a birthday party for her friends, Anna Gail and Gracie, who are twins. She had a fun time at the party and the Easter Bunny made an appearance!

5 months old!

I am a little behind on this post. Catherine will be six months old in 2 days, but I wanted to post a few pictures from her 5-month birthday to keep up with how she is growing and changing every month!
