One day while driving along with the kiddos, we passed two women running together on the sidewalk. Evelyn was all excited and yelled, "Look mommy, cool runner girls like you!!" :)

Random Stuff...

Lots of random stuff to put here... I'll start with a pic of Noah from the park -- just cuz I thought it was cute :) Noah is walking probably 95% of the time now - he is getting better every day!Unfortunately Noah caught some sort of bug that brought snot for a few days and then broke with a fever on Wednesday... but Travis almost enjoys it a little bit when the kids are sick, because they get extra cuddly:Thurday after work we took a trip down the road to Newcastle Beach. It was a beautiful night -- and the kids had a great time!

Friday night was "date-night". We went to El Gaucho Steakhouse for an amazing dinner, and then headed to a comedy club. We were originally going to celebrate our 5 year anniversary... but we ended up having more to celebrate. Travis lost his job back in March (on St Pat's day) -- his company down-sized and got rid of a lot of their engineers. He picked up some contract-type work in July -- but that was coming to an end, too. Not sure why I never posted any of this... it was a little stressful (probably why I worked out so much -- I needed an outlet!!) Anyway -- he got a job offer on Wednesday and starts on Monday! Needless to say, we had a lot to celebrate last night :)

Congratulations to Trav for his new job. Things always have a way of working out, it is just difficult to see the silver lining when you are going through it, right?!? It sounds like this is a great opportunity for Travis. I can't wait to hear more details.

Also, hope you both had a wonderful date night. To add to Kristi's list of celebrations, you also have your triathlon to celebrate :) You both deserve a night out and a night of celebration.
