we had a great weekend and a good start to spring break! we’re excited for a fun week ahead.
On Saturday morning, I watched the sun rise from an airplane on the way to Indianapolis. I landed around 8:30am and immediately got the day started!
My oldest friend is having a baby and I got to celebrate with her! It was so good to see Lisa, her family, and some friends from high school and IU.
After the shower, we headed back to my parents’ house to celebrate my grandma’s birthday! She didn’t know that I would be in town, so it was a fun surprise!
Michael brought some of his favorite beers and conducted a beer tasting class for us! We ended the night playing the horse racing game with some friends.
After losing an hour of sleep, we headed to Cafe Patachou for brunch, complete with pomegranate prosecco!
After brunch, we headed to Topgolf for an afternoon of golfing. We had so much fun!
We ended the day visiting with Celeste and Meghann! It was so good to see them and catch up!
I hopped on the 5:30am flight on Monday morning and headed back to Orlando. It was weird traveling alone, but it was nice to be able to bounce around the city for two days and see so many people, both friends and family! I am so happy to have been able to celebrate baby Richards and my grandma’s birthday.
Until next time, Indy! Thanks for the great weekend!
On Saturday, Kenley ran her first Smile Mile! The races were broken down by age and gender, so she ran with the other six year old girls. She ran representing her school, TLE, which had the third most runners out there on Saturday!
We were excited to see her head out of the corral. She did a good job hanging towards the back of the pack at first to avoid the chaos. In the race prior, several six year old boys got trampled out there!
We didn’t get to see her run the mile so we headed over to the finish line to wait for her to come in. She came in jogging, looking all confused about why we were cheering for her, in just under 11 minutes!
It was so fun to see several of her friends out there running! The weather was also amazing. It was a great morning of running.
We’re already looking forward to the Smile Mile next year!
friday night at the magic game!

The last weekend of January was the Lady Track Shack 5k! This is one of my favorite races and I have ran it for the last four years (I had to look back on the blog in order to fact check that statement). This year was extra special though because it was Kenley’s first 5k! Last year, she ran some of it, jumping in and out of the stroller, but this year there was no stroller! Kenley was excited about the race, but also very excited to see her friend Livie.
We didn’t do any official “training” so I had very low expectations. I knew she would need some encouragement along the way and that there would certainly be walking breaks. I was hoping we would finish under one hour, only because we were heading down to Magic Kingdom afterwards.
Kenley ran almost the entire first mile before we needed to stop and walk. She asked for water many times leading up to the first water stop, so I will remember to run with a water bottle next year. There were times during the race where we would “run to the stop sign” then we would take a walk break.
Towards the end of the race there was more walking (and whimpering), but there were so many encouraging women along the way cheering for her. It was seriously amazing!
She finished the race running and we came in at 44:13! She did such a great job and I am so proud of her for getting out there and running her first 5k!
She earned that medal!
Thanks to the Orlando Track Shack for another amazing race! We’re already looking forward to next year!
this has become crosby’s favorite friday night spot. daddy had to work but the kids continued our friday family movie night with big friendly giant.
thankfully, they encouraged me to get out of bed on saturday morning for my longest run of the year. six miles!
i may add ‘veggie tray extraordinaire’ to my resume.
lollipops after church!
the other three crazies got in the pool today but it was way too cold for me. the first swim of 2018!
we had a great weekend with not enough pictures taken! we celebrated birthdays, went to the park twice, and saw a lot of friends.
how was your weekend?
