May, June, and Our First 5K...

School is finally out and we have been very busy so far. Grandma Wendy was able to come stay for a week so I could finish up cleaning my classroom and Matt and I could do a little playing. He had a business day trip to San Francisco. So, I got to tag along and we had lunch at Fisherman's Wharf and strolled along the shops. We brought the kids back a crab made out of sourdough bread.

We took a drive to Island Park the end of May and expected it to be a comfortable temperature. Instead, it was 32 degrees and was snowing. Instead of seeing fish we just had lunch and made the hour and a half drive back home.

Scotlyn and I decided to do our first 5k. Well, I walked the 5k and she ran a mile. I told her to run her heart out and she did. She finished in just under 10 minutes. When she passed the finish line she ran right to the bathroom to puke. We look forward to much more of these after we build up some endurance. These can be addicting.

There are 2 pictures of the boys at the local money hole (the carnival) that rolled through town. I love the smiles, amusement, and pleasure that we get from these things. They are just so darn expensive. I dropped 30 bucks for each kid to ride 4 rides. I would have much rather gone to Disneyland!!
