Spinning in the chair

Not much going on here. Or too much. The boys were giggling away today while being spun and were so cute. This is right before SM pushed GJ off the chair, thus receiving a large bruise on the forehead. One day I think GJ will be bigger, and then things will be different.

Silver Comet 10K

Maybe you can't tell from this picture, but it was cold, raining, and miserable. I told myself when I woke up if it was raining, I would wear pants, and shorts if it was not. It started raining about 2 seconds after I left. I was not as prepared as I should have been, I hadn't run more than 4 miles since the half marathon last November. My time was not great, but pretty standard for me. Oh well. I did it and now I know better. Still debating Nashville in April though.

Happy St Patrick's Day!

We will be eating our shamrock cookies and thinking of you!

Finally Friday!

We have so much reorganizing to do this weekend, I am in a big spring cleaning mood! Plus I love yardwork and I am a little bummed it will probably rain all weekend. More so because I have a 10K race tomorrow too. Here is a picture of my GJ. He is growing so fast. He is at that wonderful stage where he will just sit for 20 minutes with an activity. This food cutting is one of his favorite. He is talking so much now, but we really have to pay attention to understand him! He does have NO! down perfectly though.

Sister's Weekend

I love Sister's weekend. It was sad not all could make it, but 4 out of 6 isn't bad. At the end of my month-long vacation/work trip in WA, we all flew into Phoenix where Tad met me and took the kids for the weekend at his brothers and I left with my sisters. We went to a small city out in the desert that is only really open in the winter. We visited my grandparents and had a great time and enjoyed some wonderful weather.
Sorry your head got cut off Shell.

Getting ready to drive off into the sunset.
You can tell we don't get to see a lot of cactus.

Is it spring yet?

It was so warm and nice today, we made a trip to Home Depot and got some things to start our compost and the garden. I still can't find any vermiculite, but I will keep looking. Soil is ready, I am ready, but I am afraid of another frost, so I might wait a few more weeks. I loved Seattle, but I am happy to be home and in the WARM weather!
Any suggestions on what I should plant this year?
