greatest hits

 it is still spring and we are still celebrating!  
we will slow down come summer.  surely. 
take a peek at our week:

1) most importantly, biggie smalls turned one.  
we spent the weekend celebrating him. 
 {baby loves chocolate}
 {he loves his daddy, too}
 {baby joe enjoyed a cupcake of the red icing variety}
{look alive, kids!}

2) i also spent the weekend celebrating that i miraculously didn't keel over and die after running five miles on saturday morning.  around mile 3.5 i was hoping someone would put me out of my misery, but my coach somehow convinced me to keep putting one foot in front of the other until the finish line.  so i did.
{me, happy i didn't die}
 {my beginners running group}
 {tim and jules ran the race too.  i ate their dust loved hanging out with them after the race}

3) "mismatch" day at ben's school.  he was in a really good mood that morning.
 4) an afternoon outside feeding ducks (they like stale cheezits, no?), avoiding geese and swinging.

{bigfoot bonner}

looking forward to dinner with friends and mother's day brunch.
how was your week?  what are you looking forward to?

until next time,
