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!!" :)

fun with friends

Evelyn and Noah went to their friend Turynn's birthday party yesterday. It was at the Family Fun Center (where Evelyn had her last party) -- one of the kids favorite places!! Here is Evelyn with the birthday girl:
Why does posing for a picture always involve a head-lock? :)

Here are some kiddos from the party (Evelyn on the far left, Noah on the far right) on the Frog Hopper. The ride goes way up high in the air and bounces up and down all the way down --- the kids loved it!!!

Last night was also a ton of fun for the kids.... we had our friends Jim & Melissa over, and their children Lucy and Charlie. We also babysat Lola and kept her for a sleepover so her parents could enjoy a night alone. Here is dinnertime -- Evelyn, Lucy, Lola & Noah -- a bunch of blondies! Charlie is still a little guy, so he missed out on the "big kids table". Needless to say, the kids pretty much passed out last night at the end of the evening. And they seem to be taking a great nap so far today, too!! :)

In other news, I completed a half-marathon on May 7th. It wasn't pretty... I did it without training appropriately... and it was pouring rain... but I finished. My next big race is on July 17th -- Napa to Sonoma -- I can't wait!! (I actually plan on training a little for this one!)

I wish I could do the Napa to year I'm determined to do the destination half! Good luck. And great job running the other one without training!

Congrats on finishing the half-marathon. You will do awesome at the Napa race. We'll have to run another race next year together :)

Miss you and hopefully we can catch up tomorrow!
