13.1 x 2

I ended up running two half marathons over back to back weekends, the first one I took super mellow, knowing I wanted to put full effort into the second.  There is a huge difference in running 13.1 miles in a relaxed pace and running that same distance giving it all you've got.  Racing is HARD.  No matter how often you run.  I think people take for granted how much effort it takes to do this, they assume it's now "easy" because of all the training you've done, I assure you, it is not. Can I just say I love my running group!?  They are such a great group of women.  I've really enjoyed getting to know them, and really look forward to building these relationships more in the future.  They are all so awesome and supportive of each other. 
Sunday morning we raced the Vancouver Lake Half, which is a flat, strange course that keeps bringing you near the finish line then takes you back out again.  Hopes up, and  But we knew that, and it was fine.  This ra…

A week in photos.

Here are a few fun photos from this last week.  Love our little friends!! These cuties just love each other!

Grandma Dorothy is our favorite!  Auntie! We went to a super fun birthday party at the movies for little Max.  We even got a tour of the projection area.  It was really cool! Baby care, bear style.  Georgia is still part of our family. Auntie does the best hair! Grandma's birthday!  We had a great little dinner party here at the house. This is how Ava set the table.  Bless her heart, she was so close! Watching TV together BFF Audrey.  Norah's a ham. I love their relationship. Bagels!  Norah's top favorite food. Shopping together. Today was so beautiful we hit up not one, but TWO parks! 
: )

Norah's first haircut!

We started with a starbucks date with Grandma.  Talk of haircuts arose, both little people were freaking out, THEY DID NOT WANT A HAIRCUT!!!! Then I told them that they could have a sucker if they got one and they were all for it!  haha Both happy the whole time and super good followers of direction... Such cutie pies!
They took about 5 inches off, still super cute!  I'm excited to see if it's easier to brush.  Norah's hair has always been challenging to say the least. They are growing up so fast!!!

Just a few random pictures...

Love their sisterly-cuteness.  

Three cheers for cute!!

My good friend Gail hooked us up with this little outfit.  I was dying to surprise John with it on game day.  It did not disappoint.  : )

 We could barely stand how cute she looks. John and I were much less excited about Ava's choice in outfits.  Barbie cheerleader is not our favorite.  Also donated to us, maybe shouldn't of let that one slide through.   Go Hawks!!  Love our little fans! 

New Year's Fun!

We had the very best time over New Year's.  Lots of fun people came to ring in the New Year with us, it was perfect!   I always make them run.  They loved it! : ) Me and my girl, ready to party! Loved having Gail join us!  Her "living" down the street has been so great!  I love when the stars align and we end up in Lincoln City at the same time!  A bunch of crazies.  Seren is so pretty.  There are 5 kids in this photo, can you spot them all??
 Cuter together.  Games bring people together.  Right?  I love how relaxed Norah was sitting on Tyler's lap.  She kept insisting he let her.  Party animals.
 Cousin love.
 Colton  Keeley and Gail  Nothing to see here, just Rhi dancing on her chair.   Vashi & Rick  I love, love these people, and this shot.
