My addiction

It's true that you sometimes don't realize how much you love something until you can no longer do it. I realized last week that I am truely addicted to running. It's gone beyond the physical and health benefits you get. Now I run because I have to. Now that I've reached my 6 week mark I can run again! I went for a short jog last week and smiled the whole time. Cars passing by me probably thought I was a freak. There's just nothing like 70 degree weather and Bonjovi to cheer me up. As i was running today though, i felt something hit my foot. I looked behind me and almost said a bad word. Two dogs were chasing me and one was right on my heels. I don't know how I didn't see or hear them before (maybe Bonjovi was a little too loud). So I turned around and led them back to the nearest neighborhood so they didn't get hit by car because I hate when that happens. Anyway, after that I had another great run. It's so good to be back!

Happy Happy Birthday!

To my HOT husband who just turned the BIG 29!!! His big day was actually on the 12th but we're a little behind. A couple of nights ago Jared and I were talking about our rough dating history before we were married and how awkward we were even though we had known each other for so long. It made me realize that though I was extremely difficult (no need to go in any more detail about that) I know now that I have always loved him. It just took me a long time to figure that out. And I'm so glad I did! We are so thankful for all you do for us. You work so hard and make it seem like no big deal. We love you! (even if you are really old now).

Here's a message from Parker (because he won't stop bugging me as I type). jt yjiuhmoyyyyiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiim/n/hjuyj j.,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,ikoooooooluloiiiiiparkerjihgikjkjmhjmnjnjjjjjmkjki

It's raining, It's pouring

I have the sick feeling our summer is coming to an end. Don't get me wrong I love the fall, but I feel like summer just got here! And the thought of winter around the corner already makes me sad. Yesterday we had the rare experience of staying home after church. We usually rush right out to one of our parent's houses for dinner. But we kept it simple yesterday and stayed home. Before dinner we did one of my favorite things and played out in the rain! I even bit my tongue and kept quite while Parker and I splashed in the puddles.

Parker and Jared racing sticks

And following them to see who the winner is

And because I'm slightly obsessive about having clean floors...

Also, a big Happy 1 month birthday to baby Tage! Look how big he is! I took him to the Dr. this week and he's already 9 lbs. 12 oz!
