our weekend

We headed down to Corpus Christi for the weekend.
We ran in the Beach to Bay Marathon Relay with Justin's co-workers...
good times!

Our "team" came in 24th in our division of 121 teams
which was Military/Law enforcement/Fire.
We should have been in the Odds and Ends division
since I am technically not military
and that would have put us in 12th place out of 981 teams.

Overall we finished 154th out of 2,436 teams
and we did it in 3:35.
I was proud,even though I was the slowest a lot!

Hopefully there will be some photos from the race at some point,
but they may or may not make it on the blog...I was one red-hot sweaty mess.
It is a lot different running in the heat and humidity that is south Texas.
A LOT different....not pretty.

The fastest team finished in 2:17 with a pace of 5:15/
The were so stinking fast...unbelievable!

The rest of the weekend was spent doing this:

I think we will be back next year for sure.
The dolphins get me every time.
And the sea turtles were pretty magical.
I can't get enough of these kinds of weekends.

Even if they require unlimited potty breaks for the short drive home...
Especially when the sign at the rest stop says
"watch out for snakes".
Not my favorite.


  1. Looks like you guys had a blast! Yeah I kinda don't want Isla to be potty trained. what a pain that will be! I find it much easier to change her diapers than have to find bathrooms for her all the time in public!

  2. That looks like an awesome weekend! I am in love with Paige's hat, I want one :) I love how your pictures vinatge-y, how do you do that??

  3. What a beautiful, beautiful family! I'm so glad to see that you are so happy and doing so well. Ben and I miss your Mom and Todd and hope they are doing well too! :)


So happy you have something to say...
