SMH Run for Wellness

This is our 3rd year running this local race and it was just as much fun as always!  Our oldest placed 4th overall and 1st for Males under 19.  The girls came in 1st and 2nd for Females under 19, middle brother came in with a big smile - considering his challenges with running lately that was more than I expected, and I actually managed a negative split in the last mile! It was a great run with many of our friends!!

We're ready!

Today we all ran in very challenging, but FUN races during the Festival.  Amber & I ran the 5k cani-cross with 167 other dogs & their humans, so that was wicked crazy! Big sister challenged herself in the 10k race over that tough course, and her sister ran the 5k with a few hundred other runners, including some of our friends and neighbors. It was a great day!
(And, Amber kept her eye on that rooster.  She could tell he was trouble!)

A new pet?

She dug a hole in the lawn and we watched her lay some eggs!

Things that make you go, "Hmmm..."

I'm not sure that the boat launch was a good place to put this sign for visibility, but then again, I saw it.

They both earned Viking Corps Awards!

His award was for Pre-Engineering and hers was for Early Childhood Education. The Viking Corps Award recognizes sustained excellence and sustained growth in academics. It's great to see them honored for their hard work. Way to go!

Vikings vs Saints

Mom doesn't appreciate that this game can get so violent, but he enjoys playing it.  OUCH!

Just enough time for one more mini-adventure!

We biked around town and stopped just long enough to wander through the beautiful gardens, which are waking up to summer!
Now that I know the girls are interested, we'll definitely be stopping in to check them out more often.

Prom Night

Yes, we did take all sorts of pretty, posed portraits of them all decked out in their finery.
But, I like this one the best!

A weird noise woke me up this morning...

It was a young black bear up on our back deck busting open our bird feeders so that he could eat the sunflower seeds inside!

So many choices!

Every year I let them pick out something for themselves, and every year they pick out something different!

This store still makes the best sandwiches in the Portland area!
