Ruby came this afternoon (the first day of my spring break)! She arrived just in time for my softball practice. My aunt, Kelly, held her while I practiced. After practice we went home, had dinner, put on our p.j.'s and went to bed.

On Tuesday morning, Ruby and I woke up a bit high. Grandmommy took us to McDonald's for lunch and then we went to shop for an Easter dress. Grandaddy came home from work early and we went to Wal-Mart with him. After dinner, we sat in the hot tub and then got ready for bed. We are spending the night at Grandmommy's because it is Spring Break.

On Wednesday, we went swimming since Grandaddy had heated the pool. Later we went to see "Return to Neverland". I think Ruby enjoyed it.
