Happy Memorial Day

I hope you all had a fabulous Memorial Day and remembered the true reason we celebrate it.  

We had a little BBQ with some friends over to eat, swim, and just visit.  It was a good day.  Here is a pic I took of me with my baby sleeping in my arms.  Our little Brayden is all energy and rarely lets us hold him till he falls asleep.  It was a good day for me.  :)

I ran another 5K today!!!

Can you believe I ran another 5K race???? A friend of mine talked me into signing up for another 5K race that was scheduled for today and I am so glad she did!! Karlee & ,I along with our husbands, all had a blast running today's 5K. Us girls ran it in 30:43, which beat my old time!!! We both also placed 3rd in our age group!!!! I GOT A MEDAL FOR RUNNING!!!!! I feel like a running STAR!!! Of course I know, it's only a 5K, but to me it was SOOOO super BIG!!!

Here are the pics of the day.....

It's so neat that my husband and I now both share a running hobby. We have many goals for the future that we want to accomplish TOGETHER!

Here is me and Karlee after the race. We sent our husbands out to the car to get our cameras so we could capture it all on film. We must be scrapbookers, huh??

Funny story.... Just about 2 k's into the race we noticed that there were some runners now running our direction. We totally thought they were the marathon runners who had started 1 1/2 hours before we did. We were cheering for them, screaming, telling them they are AWESOME!! Then we realize that they are the 5K runners!!! At the halfway point you have to turn around and come back!! We were only a little bit behind the people we were cheering on!!! Honestly, when we thought they were the marathon runners our speed picked up, our energy level got higher, and we just were pumped. After we realized that we were in the same race then it was pretty funny. :)

After we were done running we thought it would be fun to go back out on the course and cheer the marathon runners on. Karlee and I were doing cartwheels, "WHOOOOING", and doing kicks for them! Some of the marathon runners loved it and we felt that it also annoyed some. :) It was soooo super fun, though!! I really want to attend marathons just so I can be a cheerleader for them and keep their spirits up. What an amazing accomplishment for them!! We are setting a goal to run a marathon in October 2010. Just 1 year and 5 months away!!!

Here is a pic of Karlee and me with our 3rd place medals. We both placed 3rd place in our age group. Of course they were 10 years apart!!! What a fun day. I am going to miss Karlee sooooo much when she moves in 2 weeks!!!

Surprise Party!

My BFF, Karlee, is moving away from me in 3 short weeks!!! I decided to throw her a surprise going away party with just the girls. We had a blast!!!! We had lots of yummy goodies, girl talk (which I won't be sharing!), fun in the Jacuzzi, eating very HIGH CALORIE popcorn, singing American Idol WII, taking lots of pictures, and watching a chick flick. Did I mention I had a BLAST??? Here are the highlights.

Yes, of course my Cricut was involved!!!

Karlee is showing off my cute banner I made for her using Hello Kitty Font Cartridge.

Love my Karlee!!!

Look at all the yummy food!!! I made lots of chocolate covered fruit which was DELICIOUS!! I took the night off from counting my WW points. Bad Robyn!!

I made this tiny little purses as party favors using Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartridge and they were cut out at 3 inches. They were super SMALL and soooo cute!!!

As some of you know, I have been trying to get in shape. I started my journey on January 5th and I am still trying to get to the end result. Lots of hard work has gone into this and a lot more hard work is to come. I am feeling much healthier and I want to live an active life style with my children.

Family Camping

This is our first official camping trip as a family. Of course we started out small by staying in a cabin with a bathroom but it felt like we were roughing it!! 

Our sweet little boys all snuggled up on the futon bed that would be their resting place for the night.  

Scripture time!

This is Thomas's first time wearing a life vest.  He was very happy!

What a funny boy!!

Yep!  Andrew finally gets to use his fishing pole that he got for his birthday back in March!

Madie & Brayden.  Too cute for words!

I am "Robyn the fish catcher"!!  I got 2 of the 3 fishes we caught that day!  Ya me!!

Bryan LOVED to drive the boat.  Although, we both decided it would be better for us to rent once in a while than having to take care of one full time.  We hear they are a lot of work.  

Thomas caught a fish all by himself!

We have decided that this is going to be a yearly family tradition.  We had the best time ever!!

Sweet Andrew

Andrew was so excited to perform in the 1st Grade Spring Sing. After the program we got to come back to the children's rooms where they presented us with gifts.
