Here I Am, Walking Through a Hurricane

We decided to go to the air show on Saturday. Which turned out to be the wind and rain show. We saw a few planes fly before the torrential downpour. We were soaked through to our skin. But the Bean was snug as a bug.
Sad face :(
Brett's fake smile
It was definitely an adventure.

Attack of the Clones

We live in a neighborhood that recycled 4 or 5 floor plans and belongs to a strict HOA. As a result of that, every house looks the same or similar. Assembly line homes. We have lived here for over a year and we still consistently drive past our house on the way home. But today I had a crafty moment (and by today I mean that I started this project awhile ago and have been procrastinating this project for at least a month) and now if you come over you will be able to find our house.

My inspiration

On an unrelated note, should I cut my hair?

Sipping Ciiiiiiiider Through A Straw

My big girl is moving right along from nursing to drinking out of a big girl cup...and when the help of all that prune juice hopefully EVERYTHING will be moving right along.

Cookie Chaser

 I ran my first ever 5K last Saturday. It was sponsored by the Girl Scouts and called the "Cookie Chaser." Great for motivation, huh? It was a really cold morning, but in hindsight I think that was good to prevent getting overheated. I had Adelyn wrapped up pretty good and she hung out with Brett in the stroller while I raced with Dad, Angela, and David (and Melanie in the jogging stroller.)
It was actually a lot more fun that I thought it would be. I had never run in a race before, I usually just jog on the treadmill for exercise ("fake running" whilst watching Alias, at the moment), but this was a lot more fun. I think I would like to try for a 10K later in the year. My official time was 30:25, so about a 10 minute mile? I think I could probably do better.
P.S. The cookies were not so good.
