Busy Weekend

Saturday was crazy- and quite beautiful!! Sunshine and a little warmth too.
But the day itself was crazy busy!! We had one baseball game at 10, basketball at 2 and 4. A birthday party at 2... It was just busy, busy!!! We watched August Rush that night for our Family Movie night. I have to say, I loved that movie. It was perfect!! The kids loved it- even Ethan!!
Sunday was a wonderful day. We went to church- and that was great. I ran with Ethan in the jogger 5 miles and the kids and Dalton went to the gym. Then we met back at home and loaded the bikes and the bike trailer for Ehtan up and headed to the trail. We rode for 10 miles. I was proud of Brookelyn for riding so long. Kaelyn, well I was proud of him too but he could have rode all day. I on the other hand was beat!! Pushing the jogger is hard to do while running and little man loves to talk. I love to listen to my worship music and run- and I can't talk and run. And then pulling the trailer, well I was tired by the time we made to car.
I have to really hunker down this week and train hard. We run 18 miles this week. I just can't believe it is almost here... the marathon.

I did manage to make a couple of cards over the weekend. One birthday card for the party and then one just cuz!! I hope you enjoy and thanks for letting me ramble on...

The first one uses a retired paper pack for the b&t paper (Great Outdoors) and then a cute stamp set that I had to have and have never used until now. Roughin' it. I love how cute this card turned out. The little boy was having a camo party- not camping camo but boot camp... but it still was cute!! The trees, baby bear, and the tent are pop dotted.

This next one is one of my favorite Stamp of the months yet to be released!! It is for June... With Love. Paper is from a little stack that I picked up at M's. I used my copics again to color the flowers and vase. I did use Heavenly Blue CS and sparkles from CTMH also. Ribbon was from M's too.

Hi Lori-
I'm going back to Portland this weekend to meet up with our DJ to pick out all of our music for the wedding.

Brent gets off work at 12:30pm on Saturday and we're leaving after that. But I was thinking of going when they first open, since they're giving prizes to the first 25 in the door. We'll see.

And before I forget, I live in Renton, so actually not too far from you. :) I live right by South Center Mall and Renton/Tukwila.
