This weekend I checked running a 5k off my to do list. In March I decided that I wanted to run a 5k. I started training and waited to find the perfect 5k to start with. Well, the Color Run was the perfect 5k. It's a fun, non timed run in which at every k (1/2 mile or so) you would be covered in colored powder. I actually got about 25 women from our ward to run with me. A couple of them were like me and weren't runners. It was so fun to go with all these amazing women. Some of them compete in half marathons and many were first time runners. Couldn't have asked for a better group of women.

On a particularly rainy day, Blake helped Lexie see out the window as she kept pointing to the window saying "rain".
On another day Blake was caught reading Lexie a story and she was caught loving it.
Lexie is going to be very sad and disoriented next week when Blake goes back to school. She's sure going to miss her buddy!

This last weekend Joe and I were able to fly up to Denver for the weekend to celebrate our 8th wedding anniversary. Although it wasn't on our actual anniversary. It was so fun to get away for a few days, enjoy being childless and wandering around doing whatever sounded fun. A great big shout out of thanks to Joe's parents for watching the kids while we were gone. It made it even better to be away when we knew that they were there taking great care of our children (even spoiling them a great deal!).
I learned a few things on this trip. I do not like public busses, we took a bus from the airport to the hotel and it was not my favorite. I tried out fried pickles for the first time (something I've been wanting to do for a very long time) and they were AWFUL! And I learned that even after 8 years and 3 kids, Joe is still the person I'd rather spend all my time with!
