How about a little run?

Congrats to Andy, Jenica, Wendy, and John for completing yet another 20 K. Wish I could have joined you for this one...maybe next year. You all made it look so easy. I was at the finish line and saw many collapse or throw up, INSANE. My excuse for not running is that I didn't want to end up like many who I just mentioned and I had to sell at the Farmers Market, (wink).

HAPPY 18th BIRTHDAY ANNA!!! I love you so much and thank the Lord for giving me such a wonderful little sis.

Summer is almost here!

Today has been an eventful one for us and it's not even over yet. Edward began the day helping me clean the toilette, thankfully he used the proper brush and he didn't even fall in. For lunch, we started with a pork sandwich and ended with a mouth full of dirt, yum! Lastly, we enjoyed our first pool party with friends. Our favorite neighbors, Bryce, Brianna, and Megan taught Edward the important aspects of summer fun. Thank goodness for beautiful 80 degree temps and sunshine!

We've also enjoyed playing with Grandma and Grandpa's little chocolate lab puppy.

Getting back to the swing of things

Last week was a whirlwind of fun and chaos. I decided to travel with my mom and brother Daniel to Detroit to drop off Daniel for the summer and see my brother John. We drove through Chicago Tuesday night and stayed with Katy and Caleb. After 20 + years, I finally got to go to my second Chicago Cubs game. It was a cold, windy, rainy night and even worse, they lost. Nevertheless, it was great getting to watch in person and so much fun hanging out with Abby, Josh, Katy, Caleb, and Daniel. Thanks to my mom for watching Edward.
We then left for Detroit Wednesday morning. We were able to spend a good amount of time with John, his girlfriend and her family. John is working as an assistant to the superintendent at Oakland Hills Country Club. We enjoyed when John took us on a rare tour of the entire course. It's "rare" not only because it's a private course, but they are hosting the 2008 PGA Tournament in August. We may have to go for the practice rounds or tournament.
It was also a week of firsts for Edward. He loved going to the Rain Forest Cafe, riding a carousel with U. Dan, driving a golf cart, walking on a golf course, learning to say "John," and blowing kisses. Despite my worries. Edward did wonderfully the entire time, thank the Lord.
I'm now trying to get back to our normal routine at home. However, I caught a cold while away and haven't felt like doing too much. Maybe things will be back to normal next week.
One quick bite before the game.

Just a little cold

Pray for Marcie and Seth as it sounds that the baby is possibly coming tonight. Every child is a miracle and this one has been long awaited. We love you guys and can't wait to hear the news of Landon's birth and safe delivery. For those of you in Tulsa, please post pictures as soon as possible.

Stop the music!!!

Does anyone have GREAT recommendations on children's music? Due to some long car rides recently, we are in need of something new and interesting. Also, preferably something not only for the little one but for the parents, (is that even possible?!). John and I may lose it if we hear one more, "Who did, who did, who did, who did, who did swallow Jo, Jo, Jonah...etc." My dear mother just bought us a Raffi CD and a generic set of classics for kids. We are really excited to listen to something new for a change. I'd also like to check out Jack Johnson's cd for kids.
