For those of you who don’t know…Erik was a great soccer player growing up. He played all through school and on select teams, as well as for a year at Sacramento State before he transferred to WSU. At that point I guess fraternity life took over :) Since he grew up around the sport he’s been chomping at the bit to get Addison signed up to play. At the beginning of the month she started in a 3 & 4 year old league…best of all, it’s INDOORS! Works for me since I’m not quite ready for rainy Saturdays watching soccer. 
Getting Addison ready for the first practice was a little challenging since we had to talk her into wearing something other than a dress. After a few minutes of complaining we finally got her to pose for a picture before heading out the door.
Practice was hilarious…we had a great time watching all the kids run around.

After a few practices the Tigers were ready for their first game against the Lions! This was a fun game for us since Addison’s BFF Chase plays for the Lions :) The Tigers have bright green shirts and Addison is #4!

The game can best be described as ‘organized chaos’…but it was also SO.STINKING.CUTE! Even Sophie had a blast watching her big sis play :)
This just makes me realize that we have so many fun years of sports in our future!!

Tonight was Addison’s first gymnastics class!!  After getting over the initial drama (her leotard wasn’t ‘pretty enough’ since it didn’t have a skirt on it…) she put on a happy face and went into class with a good attitude :)  It was so fun watching her do her stretches and march around in a line with the other 3 and 4 year olds…makes me realize just how quickly she’s growing up!

Fun on the trampoline

Here’s a quick video from her class too :)

After class we went out for mommy-daughter dinner at Red Robin, which is always a hit…and is something we don’t get to do as often as I’d like.
Addison was extra excited when ‘Red’ the mascot came over to the table for a visit!!279
Such a fun night :)
