The boys making progress on the new fence
My afternoon run
Tuesday, April 22, 2008
Think it's time for a new fence? Hmm...what gave it away? The metal rods that have been holding it in place for the last two years or the bungee cord strung through the slats? Well, we have officially started re-building the back fence. This is the last section of the fence to do, so we are thrilled to have this project underway. Tyler is digging holes as I write. I will be sure to post a picture of the completed project.
Other than that, I am still training for my upcoming half marathon. Only 1 1/2 weeks left...Yikes! I am hoping that my hour long walk, yoga and run today will somehow help me finish those 13 miles. I always used to cram for tests, so maybe the same theory applies when training? We are also looking forward to my sister Rachel's college graduation May 11, as well as our 5 year wedding anniversary trip to San Francisco mid May. Happy and Busy Spring!

Happy Birthday also to my brother Andrew. Today he is 30 years old! Andrew lives in St. Louis, but his girlfriend's parents flew him, themselves and Lindsay out to Seattle as a surprise to Andrew for his birthday. They flew in this morning and we have a big family birthday dinner for him at the Flying Fish restaurant in Seattle tonight. They told him at dinner last night, and he said he has never been more surprised in his entire life. And more excited too! Tyler and I leave at 3 today so we can get down to Seattle, get ready and be there by 6:30 tonight. We are very excited to see Andrew, as well as everyone else and can't wait to honor Andrew's 30 years of life. Here's a picture of Andrew and Lindsay...

Today was another ten on ten day (10 photos, once an hour, on the 10th day of the month). I didn't start out with a theme, but after a few photos I realized they all had Riley in them, so I decided to go with it and include her in all the photos today. Here is a brief summary of the day:
8am: Feed & play with Riley
9am: Riley watching me talk on the phone with a friend
10am: Riley napping!
11am: Walk to the library with a friend and her kids
12pm: Stop for coffee and chat after our walk
1pm: Leaving our friends house, on our way home
2pm: Feed & play with Riley on couch
5pm: I was babysitting and majorly preoccupied, so I missed a few hours...this is us coming home
6pm: Little cat nap for Riley on the couch
7pm: Drifting off to sleep
That was my day! Check out the Ten on Ten blog on the sidebar to see other's days.
