Parker working in the yard with...

...His Dad

Dustin decide he wanted to start working on the border around our house just hours after I ran the 1/2 marathon. So, obviously I was not a lot of help. As soon as Parker saw that his Daddy was working in the yard, he got his motorcycle gloves on and started to help. He did a great job. He worked hard, got tired, but stuck it out and helped dad until the job was done.
It was cute to watch them working side by side.

My First 1/2 Marathon

The kiddos waiting patiently for Mom to finally cross the finish line.
WooHoo, go #3002!
No, we didn't plan on taking a picture right in front of the Comcast sign.

Amanda (my running partner) and me.
We have trained together for a few months now. It was great to finish our goal together. We wanted to finish before 2:30, and run the whole way. We accomplished both of our goals.

I absolutely LOVED having my super cute, sweet family cheering me on at the finish line. It meant the world to me.

Parker loves to play baseball. Well actually he love to hit the ball. Outfield to him is soooooooooooo boring. He is usually out there throwing his hat up in the air.
But, batting is what he loves!!!!!!!!!!

I just love to watch my kids play sports! And luckily they love to play them too. I am looking foward to the fall when Kate will play soccer. Parker will play basketball, and Lauren will play volleyball. It will be a very busy time, but it will be fun.

This it what Lauren and Elle do to pass the time. They love to watch Parker hit, but beyond that they have no desire to watch the game.
Elle really does LOVE her big sister Lauren!

is that lip gloss?

This is what happens when mom is talking with friends, and not paying attention to her 1 1/2 yr. old!
Elle got a hold of Lily's dress up lip gloss, and thought it would be a good idea to put it all over her face. EWWW!!

Kindy 500

Parker's elementary school does a kindy 500, which is where all of the kindergartners get on tricycles and take turns racing. It was a lot of fun, and all of the kids were super cute! And yes, Parker won his race...yeah, he's that good!

Kate's Preschool Graduation

Kate graduated from her preschool this week. She loved every week of school, and will really miss playing and learning with her friends.

mother's day

This year for Mother's Day Dustin and the kids made me big candle holders. They worked hard on them, and the candle holders turned out great.

However, Kate thinks that they are for playing on, and not for candles.

Kate and Elle

Man, they are CUTE!!!!!
Kate and Elle have such a love hate relationship. Today they are loving eachother.

Kate looks just like me in this picture. I swear somewhere I have a picture of me at her age, and I looks just like Kate. I need to find that picture.

Elle loves to wear my high heel shoes. She puts them on in my room, and walks down the stairs wearing them, and then today she got up in the chair wearing my heels. What a girl!!!!!!!!!!!

Elle is showing off her new outfit that she got from a sweet friend of ours. Thanks!!!!!
