Wrestling and fun with Nana

The boys had their first wrastlin' match tonight (with help from daddy).  Grant squealed and smiled the entire time.  We also enjoyed some quality tummy time with Nana, who we love having visit every night.  Yesterday Gabe had a blast with our Mac camera, so I included a few of those pictures.

we heart yard sales!!!

One of my absolute favorite things to do in the summer is find yard sales.  We find so many great cheap toys for the boys!  Here are a few of my favorite latest finds, featuring the 2 cutest models I've ever seen... :)

Grant in his exersaucer - $5
(Ok, not a yard sale find, but a dang cute eating picture)
Snow cones... free
Gabe's new car $3 (I looked everywhere last summer and never found one, so I was VERY excited to find one this morning!)
My personal favorite find... ever!  You can't put a price on this puppy!

Freihoffer's 5k

On May 30th I had the opportunity to run in the Freihoffer's Run for Women 5k.  It is an amazing race celebrating women, and over 4000 women ran that day.  I trained a group of women following the "couch to 5k" program - some of whom had never run before.  Everyone in my group finished and it was a very proud day for all of us.  The finishing prize was a box of chocolate chip cookies... much better than a medal!  (only half kidding... I love both!)  I'm excited to kick off my running "season".  Next I plan on running a few 5k's with each of the boys, and then if I can really be tough, running with both of them in the double jogging stroller.  *flex*  

(i cannot for the life of me get this picture to rotate correctly!  sorry for the kinked neck you're about to get!)

Ashely, me and Beth.  We ran the entire race together!
