Through The Years & March Race # 2

Race report: Susan and I ran the 5 mile "Rapid Rabbit Run" on Saturday. It was great weather for a run! My time was 44:59 and I got 10th out of 14 in my age group. Not as great as our last run... but oh well! This race was also a qualifying race for the famous "Bloomsday Run". If you beat a certain time you would qualify to start closer to the starting line at the Bloomsday race.... there are over 50,000 runners and walkers! (Sadly, it is on a Sunday so I won't be running in it!)So, there seemed to be a lot of good runners at this race... that is my excuse for not placing as well this time! March race #3 is in two weeks... check back for results and photos. I'm not sure if I mentioned it, but I have a goal of running twelve races this year... one for every month. Couldn't find a race in January and in February we missed our race because we had TERRIBLE snowy weather the day of the race and we had to drive about 45 min. away! So, this month I am running for January, February, and March and then I will be caught up.

This week (Tuesday and Wednesday) is Jordyn and Evan's birthdays! I am always so excited for them to have their birthdays. It's fun to buy them presents, make them a cake, and have a little party. I can't wait to see what Evan does when we give him cake for the first time. He is such a little pig right now (you will notice in his last picture below that he has gained weight!), I am sure he is going to down his cake in no time at all! We even made him wait to have cake and didn't give him any at his neice, Katherine's, party! Are we mean or what? After much deliberation, we decided to "officially" celebrate both of their birthdays on Wednesday with a party. I am sure we will end up doing something special just for Jordyn on her big day too. I will post photos of their party later in the week. In honor of their birthdays, I organized some photos of the two of them growing up. It is always so fun looking back at the pictures of when they were born and seeing how much they have changed and grown. It always makes you want to cry! Just click on each of the photos below and it will take you to their photo collages.

I love looking at photos in progression like that. Isn't it amazing how they are growing so big, but their faces still look the same from day one?

So if "Katherine is Evan's niece", does that make Susan your daughter?
