I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter! I truly enjoyed the time I got to spend with the boys while they had off for Spring break. We were very busy doing all kinds of fun things, and I made sure we didn't go into one clothing or food store the entire week to avoid any complaining! ;)

We had a beautiful Easter filled with fun, laughter and best of all, FAMILY!

Nick decided to draw on his this year

The finished product

We went to my Mom's for dinner on Easter Saturday. She hid eggs for all the kids to find.

Look what I found!

Next it was time for the annual "Egg Conking Contest"! Rich explains the rules.

I held onto the top spot until Rich dethroned me. Here he takes on Pop Pop.

Then he took on Nick, who beat him out to become this years victor. This picture cracks me up because of Craig's pose in the background!

Blowing bubbles in the backyard. It was such a nice day!


After dinner Mom and I went to the St. David's Easter vigil to hear Rich as cantor. It was a beautiful service.

Look what the Easter bunny brought us!

Nick helped me ice the cupcakes for dessert...he comes from a long line of pipers!

We spent Easter Sunday down the shore with Craig's side of the family.

One more egg hunt...

We are so blessed to have such wonderful families!

Today was Noah's first ever T-Ball game. It was only about 45 degrees, windy and overcast and everyone was freezing. Most of the kids thought the game was over after the first inning and we heard alot of "I'm cold"s and "I wanna go home"s, but they stuck it out and did a great job!

My turn!

Play Ball!

Today was opening day for Old Bridge Little League. Both boys are #4, Noah playing for Team DeLuca Chiropractic and Nick for Team TechSearch (Daddy's the sponsor and the coach!). After the parade on the field it was time for the kids' favorite part of the day...the free hot dog! We're all ready to start the season- Nick's first game is tomorrow night at 6 PM and Noah's is on Saturday at 10:30 AM.

Thank you to our faithful spectators Mamas, Grandma, Grandpa, Grammy and Gramps for coming today. And a special thanks to Grandpa Smak for doing our field duty!

Noah's first opening day!

This year the OBLL decided to allow 4 year olds to play T-Ball so we were very excited to sign Noah up! On Sunday he had his first practice with his team DeLuca Chiropractic. He did such a great job catching and batting and he had alot of fun running around the bases (and getting dizzy running around his bat- pic 5). Opening day is only a few weeks away!


First time at bat!
