Saturday night Elisa and I went to the Atlanta Braves vs. Washington Nationals game in Atlanta. A group of people from our branch in Auburn got tickets through the church. The game was lots of fun and the hometown Braves won 5-3. Elisa especially got excited about singing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" during the 7th inning stretch. Also, they had awesome fireworks after the game!
Saturday morning we went to a giant community Easter egg hunt with the Browning family. We taught the girls all the best strategies to dominate the other kids. The Easter bunny was even there to kick things off! The girls made us proud! They found tons of eggs and even shared with the kids who got there late and missed the hunt.

On Tuesday night we went and saw the Broadway play Wicked! Jake's parents were so sweet and bought us tickets for his birthday. We absolutely loved it and have been singing the songs to it ever since we walked out of the theater. The voices and music and costumes and live orchestra and everything was just so cool! What a fun night! We can't wait till we get to see our next Broadway play.
As some of you know, since we first started dating, Jake has called me "freckles" (yes, he got it from Sawyer). Well, Jake has made it a tradition that every few months he declares it a "Freckles Day". He surprises me by placing a piece of paper with each one of the eight letters in FRECKLES on top of eight pillows. Under each pillow is a small present or surprise!!! So I get to pick one letter every few minutes and see what surprise is underneath! It's usually just fun little things like a package of my favorite candy, a dvd, or a gift card. Jake is so sweet! I love all the little things he does for me!
