Water Fun

It has been raining a lot here lately  When it does rain, we go play outside in the puddles (as long as it isn't thundering).  When it isn't raining, we still go outside and play in the water.  Here are some water play.  Sorry, I'm still learning my camera (thanks Mom!), so sorry if these aren't very good.  I am also on Carl's computer with no editing software.

I've been wanting to take a picture of his birthmark and always forget.  It was very noticeable outside.

Not water play, but it was in the bathroom and I loved his little face

Memorial Day Weekend

We had a very busy weekend.  We spent a lot of time in a pool of some sort, whether it was our kiddie pool, the pool at the YMCA, or a pool somewhere else.  We had a birthday party on Saturday for Miss P and then a cookout Monday at Meemaw Swann's.

Just hanging out at TLG

Note the shadow... too cute!

Hunter got a new dinosaur

Pool with the cousins

Cubbie playing with Hunter's new toy

We are very thankful for those who gave the ultimate sacrifice so we can have fun weekends and our freedom. Thank you for our military men and women past, present, and future.

Not much has been going on.  I'll post an update on Carl's school hopefully later this week and then I have some exciting news to share at the beginning of June.  No, not pregnant.

Just a little catch up from the past few weeks...

Last week was teacher appreciation week at work.  I get counted as a teacher since I work in a school, so I get the benefits as well.  My students spoiled me this year.  I was so excited when I got this card from one of my students and she had used "you're" correctly.

We have had a lot of rain these past few weeks.  At some point (when it wasn't thundering), Hunter and I went puddle jumping outside.  When it did thunder for the first time that afternoon, he was not a happy camper coming back in the house.

Along with the rain, we also had some nice, hot weather.  Don't mind us, we hang out in the front yard in the "baby" pool.  We bring a little redneck to our street, haha.

My birthday was on Mother's Day and Kelly bought me some yummy cup cakes!!  Thank you Kelly!  They were so delicious!

We bought a new (to us) couch this weekend from a friend.  Hunter really likes it a lot.

Hunter found his birthday present from Cubbie, hahaha.

If I didn't have a meeting later in the afternoon that I took this picture (or a ton of students I would have had to make up), I would have called out sick and crawled into bed with him.

Tonight's bath.

Color Me Rad

Sorry I've been MIA.  Just haven't felt like blogging and there really hasn't been too much going on.

Last Sunday I ran my first 5K.  It was so much fun and I felt so good after finishing.  The weeks leading up to the race when I was running 3 miles I felt so sick after and I was so worried I was going to get sick at the finish line.  Total opposite.  I felt like I could run it again!

They had a nice course out in VB through the woods on a mud dirt path.  It wasn't very well organized; our part group was to start at 9:10, but we didn't start until sometime after 10.  Traffic and parking was a nightmare.  Carl and I were smart and parked at my parents' house and rode our bikes to where the race was.

My friend had created a team called "Spare Parts" and I joined her team.  Next year we hope to have more team members.  I told Carl we will cover up the front of Hunter's jogger (Carl would push him of course) and we would both be able to run the race.

Here are some fun pictures (some I got off of this website... they are not my photos, nor did I take them) from the race.

And this is how you finish the race.  You get your color packet, they have a count down, you throw your color!  AWESOME!  I was sneezing blue for the rest of the day.
