Ian's Confirmation

After 8 months of confirmation lessons, working with his mentor and doing daily devotions Ian got confirmed on Sunday, May 13.  It was a huge accomplishment and I'm very proud of him.

They had a slideshow with a slide for each confirmand showing highlights from the year.

After church everyone came back to our house for  a brunch and celebration.

Cara Cuteness

Cara tried riding a tricycle for the first time two weekends ago.  She didn't quite get it, but she was very determined and didn't give up!

Cara's favorite activity is her Friday music class.  Here she is playing with the parachute. 

Listening to Miss Laura.

Getting her stamp.  The best part! 

Nana got to go to music class during her visit.

Half Marathon Number 2

On Saturday I ran my second half marathon and got a personal record by 4 minutes!  Tim ran the 10K and did awesome- he came in 11th in his division out of 122!

Mom, Dad and Katie brought the kids over to watch the race.  It was great running weather, but that means cold for spectators.  Here are the girls in the stands of Memorial Stadium.

I hope these links work...
Here's my official race photos

Lila is 5!

Lila brought princess cupcakes to school on Friday to celebrate her birthday.

Then, Friday afternoon we drove down to Mom and Dad's.  We had Lila's birthday party with family on Saturday.

Happy Birthday Lila!

Last Thursday, Lila had her big 5th Birthday Bash with her friends at Pump It Up!  It's an indoor place with giant inflatable slides and bounce houses.  She had so much fun!

Her new number 5 shirt. 

She wanted a "princess braid, just like Meghan had at school today."  Apparently we've reached that stage.

All 20 kids!
