I look like a what?

In high school, I ran track. My mom would watch me run. She always said I looked like a gazelle.

Today, I did it!

I ran 8 miles.

It only took me 1 hr 20min.

That's the longest run I've ever ran.

(previous distance 4.2miles)

Sure am glad they're mine!

Otherwise, I'd have a hard time giving them back.

Weeeeeeeekend fun!

We went to Josie's again!

Need I say more?

We fished, we played in the water, we cooked outside, we chased and caught fireflies, and this time- we slept outside.

Here's the proof. . .

Here is Madi and her new boots.

We got Madi & Cal the same hat, so I had to girl her's up a bit.

We got the kids some new boots and hats. I can't get over how cute they are! I don't have any pictures of Madi yet, but here's Cal. . .

This happened a while ago. (our broiler unit exploded-or just melted-not sure which) I ordered the new part and, since my husband wasn't home, I proceeded to take out and replace the damaged goods. I'm proud to say that 1 internet search, 1 phone call to Dad, and 20 min. later, it's done. I turned it on and it does work, but I haven't cooked anything yet. I'll keep you posted on wether the house burns down or not.

Best Cousin Ever!

I have the best cousin ever! Her name is Katie. Just because I was able to name a quote from a movie she sent me an absolutely awesome pair of homemade shoes for my baby, Katie. They are a little big, but I can't wait until she can wear them. (P.S. they are wicked cute!) I also love the picture her son James drew for me.

A Good Childhood

When we get old, I hope my children look back and remember a good childhood. I mean, what can get better than a day at the zoo, followed up by your 1st rootbeer float?

Emily and Lance random showed up at my house last week. It's been fun to hang out a little.

We got to see a 3wk old baby elephant. Super Cute!

They both loved the floats, and so did the dogs.

Dress 4 & 5

Dress 4 actually was the first one I cut out. It is too small around Madi's chest. It will have to wait for Katie to get a little bigger (a year or 2).

Dress 5 is definately my favorite so far! It's a red shirt with the word "CINCH" all over it.
