At 6:00am tomorrow morning the countdown with officially be on!

3 days until the Disneyland 1/2 Marathon!!

I think I am ready...I guess we will see. Ty and I ran 11.41 miles last week, but will that last 1 1/2 just kill me? Oh well! The real question is will I be able to walk Disneyland for the rest of that day and the following 2 days?

So if you are up at 6am on Monday, say a little prayer for me! :)

Trip to the Trains

So we went to the trains in the Santa Cruz mountains last weekend. Ava LOVED it to say the least. Here are a few pics!

Christian cracks me up in this pic!

My Chubby Love...

So my hunk of burning love turned 6 months this past week...wipe tear! With this came his Dr.'s appointment and...the weigh in! Well, let's just say he is growing like a weed!

His stats:
20 lbs
28 inches
and I don't know the exact measurement but a REAL big head!

But isn't he adorable?

Does he look familiar to anyone? Ask Jon.

I {heart} google

Sometimes in life there are things that you just love so much you can't help but share. So here it is...I LOVE GOOGLE! No, it is not for the oodles of free food that they give to their employees that I often get to take advantage of through my sis-in-law, nor is it the great parking it gives me to the Shoreline amphitheater. Rather it is for the fact that they manage to create something just before I realize that I might need or even want it, just to keep me out of a possible bad situation of living without. So, my friends, in case you don't know (because I didn't) here are a few of the reasons I love google! The best part is that you already have them you just need to set it up. So check these out!

igoogle, my new homepage! It has everything I need and want in a homepage :)

google reader, it is on this new homepage of mine and I plug in my fav blogs and it conveniently tells me when anyone has updated their site, so cool!

google analytics, so if you have ever wondered who looks at your site, this, my friends will give you a clue in the right direction. It shows you how many hits, as well as where they came from. For example, I have a few hits from England...who are you Mr. Manchester???

So, basically I should work for google with the way that I promote it! You might say I have google pride, through my sis-in-law that is.

Moss Beach and Sausalito

Well, the move is finally behind us...hooray! We are basically settled, thanks to my mom and dad! My parents came out last weekend and were such a BIG help. My dad is one of those people who gets home from work and finds more work to do. He had our garage organized (with labels mind you) in no time! Anyway, thanks, you guys are the best!
At least we were able to make time for a little fun too! We went to Moss Beach, which is a little beach with a fairly low tide so you can walk out onto the rock and see all sorts of living things. We saw lots of crabs that Ava can't stop talking about. We also saw sea stars and little fish. There are also lots of seals at this beach and an airplane flew by fairly low and it scared them so we saw them move quickly across the rocks onto the water. It was fun to see the blubbery seals try to move fast on land. We had loads of fun with Grandma and Papa here. Ava is still having withdrawals. However, I am not sure whether it is for Gma and Papa or for the airport.

Is it worth it?...

One 7 mile run = one hour and 648 calories burned

One of Stan's glazed donuts = one minute and an estimated 600+ calories

YOU BET...Thanks Stan :)

Fresh Start

So we are moving this weekend to our new house. I was over there this morning taking a few things that I don't want riding in the truck. I am getting so excited to start fresh with the decorating. So I need a few ideas. I am redoing the bathrooms, one is the kids and the other is ours. Then I also want to do new pillows and accents for our front room with black couches. So I have a few ideas, but if anyone sees cute ideas please let me know. Also if you want to let me in on your favorite websites for this stuff I would love it!! It is always nice to find new sites to love! (Hayley this is where your list of web-surfing sites come in to play!) Thanks and this may be it from me for awhile...we'll see how the internet switch goes!
