Saturday morning Aiden had his last basketball tournament of the season. We left the house at 7:00 to get there by 7:45. His team lost their first game, won their second and lost their third. We didn't leave the school until 1:00!!! It was a long morning! Luckily my parent's live only 7 minutes from that school so I ran Tate there after the second game. Tenley did so good all morning, she was passed from person to person and was given tons of snuggles! Brennan was MIA most of the tournament, off playing with his buddy Cooper. Aiden did really well and it was fun to see him out there on the court again. With basketball being over we are moving on to soccer - the first game is the first Saturday of April so practice will be starting in the next couple of weeks. We won't even finish soccer before baseball starts. Going to be a busy few months coming up. Lets hope the babies can handle all the craziness and being on the go.
After the tournament we took the older boys to my parent's house to stay the weekend, along with Tate. My folks' are right in the thick of lambing season so the boys were outside helping with the new babies quite a bit. They went out to the timber with my dad for a walk. Brennan found a shed deer antler just before he stepped into the crick where the water was higher than his boot. I guess he was pretty wet and waterlogged on the walk back! :)
Meanwhile, Andy, Tenley and I went to the big city to get a little Easter shopping done and to meet friends for supper. We were at the restaurant for 2 hours (it was super busy!) but Tenley and the 1 year old that was her date (ha ha!) were so good the whole time! It was noisy in there, and our table was definitely adding to the racket, but they were so calm and cool through it all! We had a great time catching up with our crazy group, it was a much needed night out for Andy and me!
Sunday morning Andy, Tenley and I went to church then headed back to the big city to finish up our shopping. Andy made a comment that he felt outnumbered by women (finally!) and he treated his girls to some shopping and lunch. We got home with enough time to make chocolate sheet cake before we headed out to my parent's house to get the boys and have supper. We were celebrating all of the February and March birthdays, and in our family we have a lot! The majority of us celebrate in one of those 2 month's -- isn't that crazy?!? We had supper, ate sheet cake and took a few pictures. :)

Since Tate was not home (for the most part) since Friday night when we got home this morning at 11 he started to pull out all of his toys and sit in the middle of them all. It was like reuniting him with his long lost friends! So sweet and cute. :)
That was one heck of a busy weekend, and it looks like we are going to come close to that again this weekend. Let's see - Andy and Aiden have a rabbit meeting for 4-H (he's considering showing a rabbit), Brennan has his friend party at the bowling alley, the big boys have religion class and we have both our families coming to celebrate Bren's birthday Sunday. Gosh, I'm tired already!
Hope your's was a good one!
