catching up (and a shop sale!)

1st of all...
It's been a crazy few weeks around here!  My little (big) Noah turned 2 on April Fool's Day.  No, this is not a joke.  When I went into labor in the wee morning hours of April Fool's Day, my family wasn't sure whether or not to believe me.  Especially since he was 3 weeks early. 
So Noah got two birthday parties.  One in St. George with Grams and Pa (my parents)...

And one with the rest of the fam here at home!

He loves all his presents so much!  Thank you party guests, we had so much fun celebrating with you all!


I did it!  I ran a half marathon!  That's 13.1 miles.  The ".1" was the hardest.  I have to say I'm proud of myself, but due to my own lack of motivation and serious under-training...  it HURT!  My knees were very angry with me for the last 3 miles, but I pushed and pushed.  And now I'm paying for it.  I feel better today, but my left knee is still achy and my right knee is clicking.  Yes, clicking.  Uh oh.  Anyway, it was a great experience.  I ran it with my parents-inlaw, and my sister-inlaw went on to finish the full marathon!  Yay Rachel!  It was lots of fun, but I really can't say that I will EVER do it again!
A few pics:

As Dan (father-inlaw) put it, "We're smiling because the race hasn't started yet."

This was that last ".1" that hurt so much.  Notice how far off the ground my feet are.


My sweet little family came to cheer me on!

My super runner sister, Ellie, and her fam were there, but somehow I didn't get a photo of them. :(
Thanks for always being so supportive!  And thanks Eve (mother-inlaw) for talking me into it, it really was a lot of fun!

And drum roll please........................................
