Weekend Fun

We had a fun weekend but it really went too fast. Anderson and I felt bad for daddy because he had to go back to work today. This past weekend we made a trip to Wyoming so I could do a half marathon in the Medicine Bow National Forest. We stayed in Cheyenne, which isn't too exciting. For some reason I thought it would be a great idea to get a latte from Starbucks on our way to Cheyenne the night before my run. Not a good idea because I only get three hours of sleep and 4:45 in the morning came way to quickly. The run started at 6:00 in the morning and I honestly didn't feel like running; plus it was cold and windy. Well, I ran it and boy do my legs hurt! It was one of the hardest runs I've ever done. I did have to walk quite a few times and there were times when I didn't see anyone during the run. Usually I do larger events. The crazy thing was that there was also a full marathon and a double marathon. Amazing! I can't even imagine how their legs feel after 52 miles. Besides our exciting adventure to Wyoming we grilled with some friends and James ran the Bolder Boulder. I wish I could have run it but there was NO way since it was the day after my run. The Bolder Boulder looks like a lot of fun and there were approximately 50,000 people that ran it. James had to partake in all the fun festivities including caffeinated beef jerky, the slip and slide, jello shots, and who knows what else. I'm proud of him for running a 10K because he really does not like running. He would choose to ride his bike over running almost any day.
I'm enjoying my first day off for the summer. In the past few days Anderson has done so many new things. He is clapping his hands, is starting to wave, and yes, he's crawling. He's not to the point where he will take off and I have to chase him but he's just about got it down. In the next day or two I will be chasing him!! We are enjoying a leisurely day and then tomorrow we're going with several of my work friends and their babies to the zoo. It's great to have more time to spend with my little cutie.

Where's the water?

He looks like a little boy in this picture.

One of Anderson's favorite times of day.

He loves to hold onto things stand up.

Every time you post pictures of Anderson, he somehow looks bigger to me. Time just goes by too quickly with these little ones.
Your weekend sounded fun. I can't wait for more summer weather to hit here.

Anderson just makes me smile. Pure and simple. What a doll.

Gosh, you can really get a glimpse of what Anderson will look like in another year. Looking so much older! It does happen so fast!
