St. Lukes Womens Fitness Celebration 5K

My first 5K! My time 33mins, but only because I ran with Annie and I was trying to keep up the whole time! She was awesome to run with, a very great cheerleader, and an amazing runner.
The race started at the Capitol building, then up the hill to the Old Train Station, and then down Americana blvd to Ann Morrison Park. The hill was difficult to say the least, but the race was a lot of fun. Jayson and the kids came to cheer me on at the finish line. Thanks for the support!

We Don't Even Have Cable

Lately Ambree's imagination has gone wild. She has always had a wonderful imagination, but this week I was totally impressed!

It was bed time and Ambree turned into dead weight at the bottom of the stairs, so I told Jayson to pick up this "Doll" because she is so heavy. She immediately started playing the part. With staring eyes she was completely boneless and floppy as he picked her up. He propped her up on her bed, but would fall back if bumped. I managed to dress the doll in her PJs, but none of her buttons were working. I couldn't figure out what the doll did. She whispered that the doll need new batteries. So I quickly replaced the batteries. I finished the bed time routine and amazingly she kept the act up the entire time staring at me with these freaky doll eyes. Then the doll kept falling out of bed, because it "wanted to sleep in my bed." She also said that if the doll slept in my bed it would have these eyes (showing me not so scary, happy eyes), instead of the freaky staring eyes.

The next day she wheeled herself into our bedroom in her doll stroller for FHE. "I am pretending my stroller is a wheelchair." How does she know what a wheelchair is we asked ourselves? She stayed in the wheelchair the entire time. At one point the wheelchair tipped over and she was crawling on the floor with only her hands exclaiming, "I can't walk, I can't walk." I told Jayson to put the cripple back into her chair so she would stop fussing.

I wish I could blame this on television, but we don't even have cable. Never a dull moment! Thanks for the entertainment, as always Ambree Girl!

Our June Photo Shoot At Hyde Park

Highlight of My Week, (Sad I Know)

I have been working on photo books for the kids of the last year. I think the printed books will stay in better shape than traditional albums. All the pictures always fall out. Anyways, I finally finished them and was waiting for a sale. The waiting paid off because Kodak has a deal this week: buy one get one FREE, which included my photo books that were over $40 and free shipping. I can't wait until they come! Sale is through 9/17 so get working on a photo book!

A Girl After My Own Heart

We were getting ready this morning

Me: Ambree we have to get ready to go to the store.

Ambree: What store?

Me: Walmart.

Ambree: No. Target!

Me: I have a gift card for Walmart, so we are going there.

Ambree: Well, after Walmart we can go to Target.

She is a very smart girl. Obviously, Target is a much better store. I did not even have to teach her that one.
