Right before Mother's Day, we did the Miracle Miles race. Julie wasn't feeling well, so she hung out with Memere. But Sadie hung out in the backpack and Andy walked/jogged the whole race with us!
Sadie was very proud of her number, even though she didn't actually run, at all. Mommy sure got her workout carrying Sadie 6 miles on her back though.
On Mother's Day, we ended up at Avila Beach. It was a beautiful day.
The kids humored me with a picture. I ended up with a yucky stomach bug, so the next few days were very quiet, I was in bed most of the time, and even once I was up and about again, I was moving very slowly. It hit me hard!
At the end of May, Julie and Andy had "Creature Day" at school. Andy humored me and wore the turtle costume I made him for Halloween. He was ok with taking the ninja out of it for the occasion.
Julie was a beautiful fairy. I didn't even think of that as a creature, but she did and it turned out very cute.
We have been doing the Bob Jones Trail on the weekends, ending in Avila for breakfast. It is a lot of fun, the kids love it and it's great exercise for everyone. Sadie rode her bike all 5 miles this past week for the very first time. We were all so proud of her.
After work yesterday, all the kids asked to go on a hike. So we did Jim Green Trail. It is so beautiful. The kids are starting to really enjoy hiking and feel a great sense of accomplishment when they finish. Here they are enjoying the view.
School ends this week and we have a fun, busy, exciting summer planned! I know it will go by fast, so we will all enjoy the ride!
