Yesterday was not the calm and relaxing weekend day that I needed after all that. After my usual early Saturday morning grocery run, I took the kids to Aaron's opening ceremonies for his baseball league, which can best be described as 1,000+ kids milling about in colorful uniforms while parents snap photos and chat. We left early, took the bus home, grabbed Amy, and drove to the Y to get a workout in before lunch. After a quick bite, the kids and I were back out of the house, first dropping Jada off at her friend's Easter egg hunt, then taking trolley to subway to Aaron's Opening Day game, and then doubling back to Jada's friend's house to enjoy the remainder of the party. When we returned home, some 8+ hours after I'd left the house with them earlier that morning, I was pretty fried, to say the least.
Over the next couple of days, I'll try to get all the Opening Day pics and videos online so you can share with me in all the cuteness and hilarity. As a teaser, I'll simply note that upon making contact in his first official at-bat, Aaron headed straight for the pitcher's mound rather than first base. I have a feeling that, once I get that video up on YouTube, it has a chance of going viral.
