Running Club

My two oldest kids decided to join the running club with school this year! They met twice a week and either ran in the school hallways or outside in the playground together. It wasn't always easy for them but I am so proud of them for sticking with it to the end! To wrap up the end of the year they had a parent run day.

I was able to go and run with them. It was so cute! We did the stretches and warm ups with them. Then we went and ran on a local trail. After the short run we got to have snow cones!

Good job kiddos! I'm so proud of you!!!

Another Camping Trip

For my birthday weekend we decided to go on another camping trip. Well let me clarify: Dan and Colt talked me into going on another camping trip! The forecast looked cold and windy so I had decided to just forget about it and try again another time. Colt was so disappointed and kept talking about it. Dan kept checking the forecast and explaining how we could probably make it work. It did sound like fun so I relented and we started packing up and getting ready.

We got to the site and started setting up!


We got our tent all set up and our firewood ready to go!

We had a great time exploring and eating dinner together.

However, about nine o'clock this very strong, cold wind picked up. We all bundled up and sat by the fire but it was pretty miserable. We contemplated wether we pack up and call it quits or tough it out and go to bed. We decided to try and tough it out. So we got all tucked into our sleeping bags and went to sleep. The kids fell asleep very quickly. I finally started to doze off when the wind picked up even more. It was whipping the tent around so badly I was afraid it was going to break! I checked the clock and it was about 1am. I peeked to see if Dan was awake and he was. We were discussing what we should do when the wind temperature got even colder and the wind got stronger. Yup we needed to go.

I'm sure it was a comical sight to see us trying to back up that tent and sleeping bags in that horrible wind at 2am. We were so cold and so tired and so wind blown! The kids were such troopers just waiting in the warm car while we shoved everything back in the car. We made it back home at about 3:30 in the morning.

Even though it was kind of crazy I don't regret going and trying. It was a fun and crazy adventure that I'm sure we won't forget!
