AJ Turns 6

Anthony No Comments

It’s true. My Baby Boy turned 6 years old at the end of April (4/27)!

His teacher made him a crown and Daddy brought in ice cream sundae’s, for his class, on his actual birthday. He had a great day and felt very special.

He requested tacos for his birthday dinner. And then we did presents and ice cream (again) for dessert.

For their birthdays this year, AJ & Daddy requested to go to Disneyland. So, we just had a small gathering of people on Friday night – to sing and eat cake.

Connor & AJ are 1 day apart – so we sang to BOTH boys. So fun!

It was a GREAT birthday week…..but the REAL fun & excitement was only a few days later…..Disneyland/Birthday 2016 Post…..coming next! (Picture overload)

13.1 Miles, Whoa!

Someone had the bright idea of signing up to do a half marathon…any guesses who that might be? 😳

Jen & I signed up for the El Cajon 1/2 marathon. And then the whole family got into it. Neal, Joe, AJ, Dani, Nicholas, Johm Henry & Grace did the 5k.

Joe found me a treadmill on Craigslist and I got to training.

It was all going pretty good…(hard, but good).  Red-faced sweaty me after 8 1/2 miles (below).

Until…I got the flu….followed by a sinus infection…followed by a foot injury.

I was TERRIFIED the night before. I really didn’t know if I could do it.

Saturday, March 12th was a beautiful day. Couldn’t have asked for better. Jen & I kicked things off with Dani cheering us on.

In Februaury, the boys ran in their school’s annual jog-a-thon. It was on a Friday (I work from home on Friday), so I got to go – and RUN with them! (Well, I tired the ‘run with them’)

Both boys like to SPRINT! I couldn’t jkeep up.
