"s" is for SUPER (lots of pics)

Super: excellent

This past Friday (May 20) was my 28th birthday!
(Gosh - I am getting old) 

I had a SUPER birthday weekend!!!

I spent time with my friend Sarah earlier in the day, we went on
a 6 mile walk. Then, I spent the rest of Friday with my family.
We went to dinner at Olive Garden! yummy

I went out with friends on Saturday night!!! 
Mike's mom was not feeling well, so Mike stayed home with
the kids so I could get out! (such a sweetheart)

Here is my birthday weekend recap:

"r" is for RANDOM

Random: having no specific pattern, purpose or objective

I have been slacking majorly on my blog...we have been pretty
busy lately. 
I am going to start blogging on a more regular basis
(on the weekdays that is)

The weather over here in the Pacific Northwest was GORGEOUS
over the past weekend, so we spent a lot of it outdoors!
Kaleb was busy playing across the street with his friend, so here are some pics
of Adelynn playin outside.

Last night, Mike and I curled up on the couch and watched some tv...
it was a little cold, so Mike covered up with a blanket...

I had to get a picture of him covered up in Adelynn's Cinderella blanket!
How cute is that??!

"q" is for QUICK

Quick: in a rapid or speedy manner

This is going to be a quick post to share with you 
what we did on Mother's Day.

The day started off with Mike cooking me breakfast, 
while I got to sleep in. (till 8:30)

I woke up to this:
kaleb made me a necklace & 2 cards at school! : )
I did not really want to do much, just spend time with my family!
Mike deep cleaned our washing machine, which was nice.
He also kept the kids out of my way so I could do some cleaning,
which I REALLY appreciated. 

To finish off the day, we went over to Mike's parent's house.
We had dinner (steaks) and a great time visiting.

I am so blessed to be a mom to 2 wonderful kids! 
so sweet
little miss attitude
I hope everyone had a FABULOUS day as well!

"p" is for PROUD

Proud: feeling pleasurable satisfaction over an act

In a previous post I told you all about the run I was doing on May 1. 
I am talking about Bloomsday 2011.
It is a 12k or 7.46 mile run in Spokane, WA.
I did it, I crossed the FINISH line! : )

Overall Place: 22,173 out of 50,611
Finish Time: 1:45:52
Pace: 14:11 per mile
For my 1st race, I think I did well. Actually, I could have done better,
if I didn't have a Sinus Infection that day. Boo!

Even though I was sick, I still beat my goal of 2 hours.
So I can honestly say that I am PROUD of myself.
I have a few more exciting events coming up this summer, 
but I will share those at a later date! ;)

"o" is fo OBSERVE

Observe: to become aware of/to watch attentively/to take notice

I know, I know, it has been awhile since I have posted anything.
I have been SUPER busy - but I am back!

Last week I was doing some cleaning and when I came into
the living room, this is what I found:

How cute is this??? My heart melted when I saw this!
I took a few pictures and then moved back
and quietly observed from afar. 

Adelynn just LOVES when Kaleb reads to her. 

Happy Monday!
