May Days

Kris and I had a Mother's Day feast over at our place.
These are our very proud mamma's. :)


... The bird feeders behind our house continue to be a source of entertainment on the weekends. Seriously, who needs cable when you have young dare devils risking their lives for a single golden nugget of corn... Drama! .... yeah, he jumps. sometimes misses.


It was a rare occurrence... We got to spend some time with the Spanding family down here from Gay-Town. Ella finally got her birthday present! But... like most one year olds, the ribbons and package the gift came in was WAY more fun to play with.
.... And as you can see, Kris is wearing his Riverbank Run T-shirt. He wore it for 3 days straight after that race... :)

Chester got stuck up there.
He was so embarrassed.

Does Anyone Have a Wheelchair Kris can Borrow?

Before...

After...

My cheerleader Momma...

Kris didn't end up spending time with the official race paramedics like I thought he might.... Although, he is having a hard time walking now... And really might at least need crutches for a week... Apparently this was some kind of macho I-have-to-prove-my-manliness thing that he had to accomplish. And DID! With a pretty darn good time... 2:26.


I don't need crutches because I've actually been training for this race since January... And the hard work paid off... I felt absolutely great!... the whole time! It was BEAUTIFUL out!
I finished at 2:30 (Which was my goal). YES!

It was really fun to train for the race with my friends from work (and Kris ofcourse)- Now we just need to keep running so it stays fun!
