Mother Daughter Relief Society Night

We had a fun mother/daughter RS night last month. We had dinner, made bracelets, painted nails, made hair flowers and got our picture taken. Katie was in heaven.

Windermere Marathon

We did it!!!
About 10 feet to the finish line.
20 feet to go.
About mile 5.
I ran my 2nd half marathon yesterday. It was on the Centennial Trail. It started in the Valley at Mirabeau Park and ended downtown in Riverfront Park. I don't have my official finish time but it was about 2 hrs and 12 minutes. My first race my time was 2:25:55 so I am improving. That's about 1 minute off my mile time. I ran with my friends Abby and Shannan. It wasn't too bad until the last mile. It seemed that it was a last 3 miles itself. But it's done and I ran the whole thing. Yeah for me. My friend's husband was running so she was nice enough to take pictures of us.

Garret the leprechaun

Does my son look like a leprechaun or is it just me?

Katie's new bike

So finally here are some pictures of Katie on her bike that she got for her birthday in February. I know I am so totally with it.

Tanner's Tempos Concert

Tanner's friends Donovan and Max doing a Beatles number.
Playing their kazoos.
Tanner had another Tempos Concert. It is a 4th and 5th grader after school choir. They sang lots of fun and silly songs.

Math is Cool

Tanner was in a Math competition. There were 30 schools from all over the area competing. Tanner's school won 2nd place for the team competition and Tanner won 1st place in the individual competition for his school. It was fun. They cheered on all the kids like it was a big sporting event and really made math seem cool.

Harlem Globetrotters

The Harlem Globetrotters came to Spokane. Katie and Tanner and their friends Campbell and Corbin had a great time. What kid wouldn't like awesome dunks interspersed with some depantsing.

Easter Morning

nThe Easter Bunny brought Katie some money along with a note from the Tooth Fairy apologizing for not bringing money sooner. It said that the Tooth Fairy had been sick and so had not been able to get to Katie's house to give her money for her lost tooth. So the Easter Bunny had agreed to bring it to Katie. What a lame Tooth Fairy. It had been several weeks since Katie had lost her tooth, and not just any tooth, her 1st tooth.
We had a very causal Easter this year. All of my family was out of town, so it was just us. I didn't even cook an Easter dinner. The kids all needed new clothes, so they got clothes. Very boring for them, very cost effective for me.

Coloring Easter Eggs

.Garret really got into coloring eggs this year. I think he could have colored all 2 dozen by himself and still wanted more.

Another year of coloring Easter Eggs. The things we do for our kids.
