Twin Light Half Marathon

 I ran my 2nd half marathon a few weeks ago.  I was slow but it was a good starting point for future races. 2 hours and 12 minutes.
The race was in the most charming little beach town called Rockport. I was in heaven running and enjoying the beautiful scenery. After the race we played at the beach for a while and headed into town for fresh lobster and homemade ice cream.  Our anniversary and Mother's day were the next day and Mike had to study for finals. He basically took the day off from school to come with us and it was a perfect day! I can't believe we have been married 7 years. I am one lucky girl. 

 I realize this is  the most unflattering picture of me with double chin and all, but the background is so pretty.
 Kate could live at the beach she loves it so much. It is a struggle getting her to leave.  Poor baby Cole had a cold and was teething. He was still a trooper.

 The longer I am living on the east coast the more I am falling in love with it!

Joy School Graduation

Kate was in a little Joy School group for the last 4 months and they had graduation on Sunday.....so tender!
We had a talent show at our official graduation and when Mike asked her what she wanted to do for her talent she said, " the tire swing. Lets go practice right now dad." Mike pushes her really really fast and high on the tire. It totally makes me nervous and no other kid wants Mike to push them as high as Kate, but she seriously LOVES it.  If she wants to spin she says she calls it twisty dog or if she wants to go really fast she says high dog. 

 For our family talent Kate wanted Mike to spin her and me to spin Cole. We are a really talented family. It was either that or to sing Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes really fast.

                                                                    The  Graduates.....Lily, Soren, Judson and Kate

                                                  Coop preschool has been great here in on the east coast where preschool cost more then my college tuition. But as soon as Mike is done with school and he is making money again. The first thing I will do is enroll Kate in a REAL preschool! So I don't have to be her teacher!!!!
