Dino Dash

Before I got pregnant, I was running and doing the occasional 5K (3.2 miles) here and there. I probably did 6 or 7 over a couple of years. I was getting better and better with my fastest time being 25:15. When I got pregnant I stopped running completely. Well since Sam turned 1 I have tried to start running again. It has been a slow process! A couple of months ago my friend Audra and Uncle Jackie were both talking about signing up for Dino Dash. It is a 5K the Discovery Museum puts on to raise money. I have done it in the past and it is always a lot of fun and a good course. So I agreed to do it. I had been running a little, but still had not run a full 3 miles in years. Of course as we stood at the start line I was sure wishing I would have ran a few more times:) My goal was to be able to run the entire thing...maybe 30 minutes. I ended up doing a little better I finished in 27:24. I placed 7th and Audra placed 5th out of 53 in our age group so I was pleased! This is the link to the results, they have me as Walnut Ridge instead of Hickory Ridge, but whatever. Audra and Marsh did awesome as well. My parents and Sam cheered us on as we crossed the finish line. Sam had a big time checking out all of the things they had set up for kids.

E's Uncle Jackie and Aunt Sally

Uncle Jackie is the one who got me running in the first place. It is something we have enjoyed doing together. Aunt Sally is our biggest supporter:)

Marsh and a couple of other guys we know ran with us. He finished in 28 something.

Crossing the finish line!

My cousin gave me a bag of clothes, and in the bag was this little NIKE outfit. It is hilarious!!! I thought Sam HAD to wear it to the race. Marsh said it was one of those pictures that was going to haunt him forever.
Mrs. Donna told me that I could never put it on him again!

Happy Birthday Laura!

Tuesday is Laura's 30th birthday! We had a little get together at my house to celebrate. The kids had a big time, Dane didn't know what to think about Sam!

Sam and Max

Friday night we went over to Holly and Carlton's for dinner. Sam and Max played so good together. Emily got to show Sam her new pet and kept saying "Sam and Max are best friends." She is so sweet!

The Headband

Sam loves to put things on his head and the past few days it has been a headband! He doesn't always get it on straight, but he manages to wear it for a while. Or until dad sees it and it is instantly taken away. I think it is hilarious:)

Mother's Day

I had a wonderful Mother's Day!

Sam and I went to church and then to Mottie's for lunch with the family. After we left there, Sam and I went home and had a nice 2 hour nap and then E cooked supper.

Great Day!

Mrs. Donna gave me a DVD for Mother's Day that had Sam's pictures set to music. Sam and I loved it! Thanks so much Nonna!!!

Past few days

Mrs. Carol, Jessica and Caroline at my baby shower.

It has been a long past few days. My moms best friend Mrs. Carol, that I have been going to visit in the hospital, passed away. We have been in Sheridan attending the services. Mrs. Carol was so full of life and always celebrated events in our lives. She was at the hospital the day I was born and at the hospital the day Sam was born. She has two beautiful daughters Jessica and Morgan and a granddaughter Caroline that made her so proud. Please remember their family in your prayers.

Sam and Papa Roy had some quality wagon time.

Sam loves wearing dad's hat around the house.
