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!!" :)

Pics & A Fond Farewell

We had some pictures taken this past weekend by Heather Puett again. She took some cute ones of the kids last fall, too. Here are a few (these were already posted on Facebook, some of you have already seen them):

I said good-bye to my old friend "the bean" this week. My old Sony mp3 player was given to me by Travis a long time ago (maybe in 2004?). It has seen me through a lot.... 5Ks, 10Ks, a 12K, a triathlon, a half-marathon, and all the countless hours of training (and some tears) that went along with it. I am putting the bean into retirement :)

Travis bought me the cute little pink iPod nano for my birthday. I LOVE it! My in-laws gave me iTunes gift cards for my birthday to go with it -- so I was all set! I had my first bonding experience with it last night during a 9.5 mile run. We survived the run together -- I am sure it was our first of many memories :)

Cute pics!

And I'm imprssed "the bean" lasted that long. I think I've been through a couple of ipods during that time (one lost to the washing machine). Congrats on the 9.5 mile run!

Those pics are sooooo cute! The ones of them together melt my heart!!!

I have an Mp3 player from 2004 as well. I got an iPod touch for my bday last year, and I bought the armband for it, but I actually switched back to my regular Mp3 player because I like the way it fits on my arm better than the iPod. My sister brought her nano with her this weekend though...I may have to invest in one of those:)

Nice job on the 9.5 mile run!
