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.
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.
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.
Brett and I met on a study abroad in Germany. On August 10, 2007, exactly one year from our first date, we got married! We both graduated in May 2008. We love to travel and take every opportunity we can to get away!
In October 2011 we had our baby girl, Adelyn. We are riding the parental learning curve now!
