Busy Weekend

Saturday morning started off bright and early with Aiden and Hives. No, Hives isn't a friend, it's this annoying crazy breakout that hits my boys every now and then. Usually I can come up with some explanation for them but not this weekend. He broke out 3 times Saturday and 2 time Sunday, basically every time his Benydryl wore off. Saturday morning was the Bridge the Gap to Health Walk/Run. Todd ran the 1/2 marathon and did awesome. It was his first official one so I was proud of him for doing it and finishing in 40th out of over 100 men. My Aunt Janet, cousin Kris, my friend Johnna and I all did the 5k Walk. Johnna tried to talk me out of it b/c it was so cold but I'm so glad we stuck it out. Yes, it was in the 30's, very windy, and yes, we did have snow flurries, but we kicked butt and I actually broke out in a sweat. It was a lot of fun. Here's a pic of the 4 of us after the race. I look scary as hell which is why I made the picture so small. :)

I think that's my husband jogging over there on the other bridge. I saw 3 guys that looked like him so hopefully one of them was him! :) Running back and forth across the Mississippi River is awesome, even when the wind is blowing so hard that you have tears coming out of your eyes and your cheeks are numb!!

After the race, I had to hurry home and shower and head to work for the day. When I got off of work, Todd and I met Scott and some of his friends at the KC for a Trivia Night. It was a lot of fun. We didn't do too great, we found out you had to be really old or a huge history buff to get a lot of answers right but we laughed out butts off at some of the creative answers we came up with. It may scare you to know that I DID know the answer to "What musical instrument does Spongebob Squarepants play?" Yeah, it scared me too. I yelled out "Ukelele" before I even thought about what I was doing.

Sunday was my niece Ellie's baptism. She looked so beautiful in her Grandma Chele's baptismal gown....she even had pink toenail polish on her itty bitty toes. What a doll. Todd was her Godfather and he was so excited and proud to be!! This picture was taken after wards at her party after she had changed out of her dress. Grandpa John was snuggling with her and got some cute smiles out of her. If you look closely you can see her necklace with a cross on it that she got. A precious gift for a precious girl.

What a wonderful weekend in spite of the nasty weather. Good weather forecasted for the week. I hope we get every last bit of it. The boys get out of school in 5 weeks for summer vacation. Seems hard to believe when we haven't had much of a spring yet!!

I would have passed on the walk on Saturday too....that weather was horrible. At least it looks like spring today. What a special day Sunday was=nothing more special than a baptism....

5 weeks until school is out - that is hard to believe!! You all looked so bundled up in that picture - it looks so cold, but sounded like a lot of fun. Hope you are having a good week - see you later, Kelly.

Way to go on the Bridge the Gap! I want to do it next year when we're not getting ready for a baptism:) I just hope we get a much nicer day then!

Hope the hives have stayed away. I think it's funny how much our kids have had them...I don't remember anyone getting hives when I was little!
