pierce has been really interested in basketball lately. 
like really into it.
justin came home with real basketball shoes the other day and they haven't left his feet since.
his basketball goal has been moved outside to either the garage or the backyard.
and he is often found in one of the those places playing.

so...we all donned our green and headed to the aac to cheer on our celtics.

spring break: a trip to denton

on friday of spring break, we loaded up the car and headed to denton for the morning and afternoon. 
we were able to spend some time with miss carly. 
and then see will and hillary.

when we got there, we stopped at miss carly's apt and then headed to a fun park.
all was fun and games until the bees were spotted.
needless to say, we weren't there long.

so we headed up the square.
ate a little lunch and played some soccer.
lots of soccer.

sweet miss carly.
we love her.
oh these two.
after lunch, will and hillary met us in the square.
after some ice cream, we played a little more.
and this is my new favorite picture of these four.
