Five Years Ago....

Five years ago today, I started this little blog of mine.
I really didn't have any idea what I was doing.... still don't.
Just take some pictures and talk about what we have going on in our lives.
I decided to look back and see what I was talking about five years ago.
Pretty much the same things as today-- our family, the girls, school stuff.
The very first "header" on my blog.
The girls were so little!

             My first blog entry was about my day with Rebecca and her first taste of green beans.

A few other pictures from the early days..........

Thankfully, my picture taking skills have improved over the years :)
It's been fun to look back and remember.
Glad we have this on-line memory
book of our family and life here in Georgia.

Ama Luna

Yesterday we took the girls to Atlanta to see the latest Cirque du Soleil show. We got there a little early, so we wander through Atlantic Station Central Park and Rebecca found a game to play.

It was Rebecca's first time to see the show and she was excited!
She was amazed and I think overwhelmed by it all. It is a lot to take in.
It is against the rules to take pictures of the show, but we were so close to the
stage, at the very end I snapped a quick picture :)
All of us !

Diva Run

picture is from Google.
A couple of weeks ago, my friend Chelsea and I, ran the Diva Half Marathon.
Me, Chelsea, Jamie and Michelle
The race was in Peachtree City, so we had to up very early to drive there.
The race is for mostly women and quite a few ladies dressed up. I made tutus out of tulle for
Chelsea and I.
Early morning picture.
All the ladies ready to run. There were also lots of ladies running a 5k.
Some of the ladies had elaborate costumes. This lady was celebrating her birthday, so she was running in a cake costume ?
I noticed our shadows and thought it would make a good picture.
Peachtree City is called the "golf cart city." Lots of people drive the carts around town, so there are a ton of paths for the golf carts. It was a sunny and warm day, and thankfully most of the course was on cart paths and in the shade!
We finished! Three hours and one minute.

The prettiest medal I have so far!
A fun race, glad to have a friend to run with.

Labor Day Weekend 2014

We spent the weekend with our friends. We started at the pool and the kids did waterslide and water fights.
The girls making some music.
We had the idea to camp in the backyard and watch a movie outside.
But, it started raining, so we headed home.
We went to church and then back to try camping again.
 First, the girls played in a big tent filled with bubbles.
We watched a movie and then time for smores.
The dads and the girls all slept outside in the tents, and the moms slept inside:)
Fun weekend with our friends!
