March started off a lot like February, with a race for me. :)
I got this great deal on a recovery place and did some cryotherapy and compression boots. Spencer did so great.
Before I head out of town for the night I took the kids to a trampoline park and we had a great time.
That night Aaron was a rock star. He did cello lessons and then took the kids to their spring flings. Oh man was Camilla excited about this. The dance had all the things and all her friends.
Getting her nails painted.
With Camilla and Emmy.
A fun date with her Dad.
Then he made the switch to Carson's spring fling.
Carson had a great time too but was much less interested in the whole dancing part. :)
Spencer at the house. After the dances Aaron took the babysitter home and then put the kids to bed.
I got up early and ran the Woodlands Half Marathon. I had a great race and was SO excited to come home with a new PR. It was a perfect race and a perfect day for me, I was so happy with how I raced. Finally broke that 1:30 mark and it felt dang good.
Afterwards I ran a few cool down miles and then met up with my friend Liza.
We ate snacks and hung out and then went to cheer our friend, Clark, as he came into the finish line, crushing his marathon in 2:59!
Meanwhile Aaron did all the things at home. He got the kids to soccer and soccer pictures, did both the girls' games and took the kids to get donuts. He is such a fun dad.
Brookey's first soccer game. Man we love her.
There was a lot of dress up of course.
I had to rush home so that Aaron could go on a guy's afternoon for Adam's birthday. He had a great time.
Of course per usual, tons of food has been consumed.
My B had western day at school and was the cutest western girl ever.
I discovered a new running trail and that was awesome.
Carson went rock climbing with the boy scouts. He did awesome.
Camilla grew these vegetables in her garden at school. She was pretty proud of this salad.
This brought us to Spring Break week 1!
On Monday we went to this great park in Round Rock. It was awesome and we had so much fun. We had amazing weather that day. The big kids had a blast I was worried about keeping up with the littles.
Then we walked to visit the ducks.
Then we took a walk over to visit Kim and Eric's twins' tree.
Talked to the kids a lot about death and resurrection and heaven. It was a sweet experience.
On Tuesday we did a family track day. The kids brought their bikes and they played with Aaron while I got my workout in. It was a beautiful morning and we all had a lot of fun.
I am not sure how many laps Carson ran but it was a whole lot. He also biked a few miles as well. This kid is a machine.
Poor little B wanted to run a whole mile by herself. That is a long way for a four year old to run. She kept trying and she did run four laps but she took breaks in between and that made her frustrated.
Millie was determined to run one whole mile without stopping one time. I am beyond proud of this girl and her grit and determination. I ran the final lap with her. There was no quit. She was tired but she pushed through.
On Wednesday I packed up the kids and we went camping with the Baldwins and the Peterson. It was totally last minute and spontaneous but it was pretty perfect. Aaron came out and ate dinner with us after work and then came back in the morning on his way into work to help me pack up.
The kids ran around playing with their friends all night and we hung out by the fire.
Late night bathroom run.
Somehow all the kids ended up in my twin air mattress. It was SO unbelievably cold that night. I got into the 30s and we were grossly unprepared for it.
Thankfully Jeana brought hot chocolate and we got warm by the fire.
In the morning the kids went to the lake and played and had a blast together.
Then it was time for me to pack my crew up to get home.
Then it was time to camp again, this time in our backyard. The Johnsons came over and we started off with a hike in Walnut Creek.
Then we made hot dogs and s'mores and grilled burgers.
The kids watched a movie, told jokes, and stayed up late. On Saturday I went for a long run and then we spent the morning together. I was pretty worn out from our week of fun but it was all perfect.
Love these two in their Arkansas shirts.
