Of course, my blog would not be complete with lots of pictures of the kids. Here's what we've been up to since Christmas...
As you know, before the holidays I discovered the trails near my house. I love, love, love the trails! It's so fun exploring them and I love being out in the middle of nature with a soft path beneath my feet. And, I've taken the kids out for a few walks. At first, they were a bit hesitant - I mean, there are bugs, scratchy bushes, weird noises, etc.

|Yes, it's winter and we are wading in the creek...warm air, freezing water!|
|Gotta admit, it's a gorgeous view!|
The kids also ran a kid's 1-mile race and had a blast. It was one of those mornings where the kids were a bit cranky and whiny (okay, a lot cranky and whiny!). But, when we arrived at the race, they were happy and excited. Of course having a playground at the race site certainly helped, lol! I was super proud of how well both kids did - Riley ran the entire mile (when she typically runs about 1/2 and whines while she walks the 2nd 1/2) and Joseph ran about 3/4 of the way (also with very little whining!). They both proudly wore their medals and enjoyed the post race festivities.

Our local Luke's Locker recently hosted a craft night, so several of the folks from my running club met up for the festivities. Hey, if there's wine there, we will be there!!! We made coasters from our bibs and they turned out great. Such a fun time with some awesome women!
|Yes we are straining the wine with a coffee filter...long story.|

|So many races, so many great memories!|

I've also been trying out lots of new products, thanks to my subscription to both Bulu Box and Kona Kase. I love getting those cute little boxes in the mail and seeing what kind of goodies are inside! I am going to be posting some unsolicited reviews each week as I try the products...yummy!
|Here's the type of stuff you get from Kona Kase each month...awesome!|
|The Bulu Box...just seeing this in the mailbox makes me smile!|
|Only in Texas would you have a mechanical bull at Church...the kids loved it!|
|Bingo night at the Kiddo's school...we were close several times, but never bingo-ed! Next time!|
|Enjoying the awesome weather at the playground|
|Rainy day? No worries...we can have fun indoors, too!|
I hope your 2013 is going well so far! I still need to post my 2012 recap and my 2013 goals...yes, this type A has been procrastinating on this. I think this year is going to be my year to make some big changes...I'm working on it, anyway. In the meantime, let's enjoy each day to it's fullest and appreciate all the little things that make life so wonderful...
|Appreciate the beauty that is all around us!|
What have you been up to so far in 2013? Training? Races? Travel? Lemme know!
