Ethan is doing the Kids OC Marathon-- one mile at a time- he is probably up to around 10 miles right now.. And on Friday mornings- parents are allowed to run with them so I run with him every Friday! Chops has been running with us too... Today, Ethan was loving it so much he ran 2 miles!!! The very last
Mile, the 26th one- he will run at the actual OC marathon on race day and get his shirt and medal! After that- we are running a 5k at Wet n Wild theme park!

The Gugels Visit CA

Cecilia, Jon and family came to visit and here are some pictures from their last visit. The girls are getting so big and it was so much fun to see all of them- even if it was only for dinner for one night.
They were in town for a cousins wedding and had a jammed pack agenda but we were so happy to be able to spend some time with them. Garbriella is talking so much and little Naomi is motoring around and has the funniest expressions! We are looking forward to seeing them all in a month or so!

Chops playing TBall!

Go Chops!

Festival of Whales- grunion run

This morning- we met in Dana Point to do the grunion run! Me, rose and Maggie ran the 10k and Ethan and chops and mr. Dave and ms Sydnie ran the 1k! It was an overcast morning but great for running! I also got my fastest time running a 10k- I ran it in a little over 55 minutes and did 9 minute miles! Rose paced me (thank you Rose!!!) and now I am ready to do another race and beat that time!! Thanks to Jeff too for waking up so early since he had a hockey game last night and didn't get home until 2 and had to get up at 6.. Which was really 5 due to daylight savings time!

Wow- What a way to start the day! Love u guys

Jenelle's 18th Birthday

Here are some pictures from Jeny's daughter, Jenelle's- 18th birthday! It was so great to see everyone- all of our cousins came from all over Cali to be here for this great occasion- and some from other parts of the country... like Rachelle! Jeny loved it so much that you were there!
She looked so pretty and it felt like we were at a wedding! Food, music, a photo booth, DJ and slide show! And all the food was home made- and of course- Jeny made all the deserts- everything was delicious!
It was really nice to have everyone together-- just missing Mom and Dad and Dan and the boys. The whole evening was put together well- and Rose and I were in the candle ceremony, Rachelle was part of the treasures and Ron and Roger were part of the roses dance!
I have a ton more pics that I will try to upload to flickr soon! But here are few to enjoy now-- sorry this post is wayyy late!
