Powell update of our April and May

I know, I know - I am a bad blogger. Let' face it I will never be as good at blogging as Hilary, Mandy G. and the Whiteley girls.

Whoever said that the summer is relaxing sure does not live in the Powell household. We have something going on every single night of the week. Garett is taking classes to finish his masters. He is also coaching his high school baseball team in the summer league, which means at home games I am the lucky one who gets to work the concession stand. He plays softball in the men's league as well as we play together on a co-ed team. Henslee is playing t-ball this summer and she loves it!

This is Garett's good friend, Coach Dave Reisen of Pioneer presenting Garett with the 1st place trophy at the Merrifield. Henslee and I are very proud of Garett's high school baseball team this year. They won the Cherokee Strip Conference, the Merrifield Office Supply Tournament, the won their District Tourament advancing to Regionals where they were defeated by the no. 2 ranked team in class A.

This is after their win at the Merrifield.

This is Heny and her best friend Merric playing in the dirt. There dad's were not happy about this.

Playing 1st base - I love this action pic.

And she scores! (Garett is the 3rd base coach)

Get off me ball!!

The OKC Zoo

Grandma Christi's birthday was March 10th, she wanted to do something fun that we could all do together. So we went to the zoo. We knew all week that we were going but we did not tell Henslee, we wanted it to be a surprise. This was her reaction when we told her where we were going. She said, "Yeah!!"

The girls looking at the Rhino, sorry he didn't make the picture.

Henslee was looking forward to seeing the elephants but they are in Tulsa, for breeding. At the end of the day her favorite animal was the giraffe.

My favorite comment Henslee made was about the gorilla. She said, "Mom, I think he had too much to eat for breakfast."

I know, I know it's been a while. We have had rough February, Henslee has been the only one not to go to the Doctor. "Knock on wood!" Well every year, Garett gets an upper respiratory infection and that is a bad combo for someone who has asthma. I keep getting sinus infections and my Doctor has ordered that I have a Cat Scan this Thursday, he thinks I have chronic sinusitis. "This is lovely" I had to take Taylor to the Doctor the day after I went because and she had bronchial croup. Thank goodness for my mom! I love you mom you are the best!
All I can say is this better be the end of it because am ready for baseball season!!
Sisterly love

Can you say ornery?

Taylor, Grandma Christi and Henslee

Our little cheerleader.

Getting ready for Farrin's wedding. Our little princess looked so gorgeous and she was perfection in the wedding. The wedding was beautiful.

I do not know how my sister and her family can live in San Antonio, I walked outside and my makeup just started running down my face because it is so humid and hot.
