Running with Mommy?

Yes, I am still running. I finished the 40 Day running challenge and it was awesome. Now I have moved on to training for my second half marathon. It's in about 3 weeks! Yesterday when Layne brought me my shoes she had daddy's shoes on. She told me that she was ready to go running with me :) It was so cute.
*Don't mind Kit sprawled in the middle of the floor. It's almost like she's narcoleptic. That cat will just sprawl out anywhere at any moment and zonk out!
The other day the girls were "painting" our fingernails. I just got them a cup of water and some paint brushes and they ran a little salon. Even daddy received a manicure!

End of the Year Programs....

This morning Jeremy and I got to watch sweet Layner perform in the 2 year old End of the Year Program. She sang a little, looked around a lot, was very distracted, BUT didn't cry at all!
Isn't she just the most precious thing ever!?
Here she is getting her certificate for the 2 year old class!
My little Layner.
Tonight we headed back up to the preschool for Hayden's End of the Year Program. None of my pictures turned out, so I'll have to wait on Pop's. Well, I did manage to get this one of the little diddle. The program was adorable. All of the songs were about trains and this is how all the little kids were dressed!
Sometimes I look at our girls and I just can't even believe that God actually gave them to ME. They are both just so amazing in very different ways and I am so lucky to be their mommy!! Let the SUMMER begin!!

Mini Haircut

Can you see how so very excited Layne is to be getting a hair cut....even if it IS just cutting off the rat tail.
Admiring the finished product.

Flower Princesses!

Oh sweet Layne-just has to push the limits!
Can you see the sass in this picture?!
The big day and they both did wonderfully. Of course, we did bribe them with a new toy (didn't really need to bribe Hayden since she's an old pro at the flower princess gig). The rehearsal didn't go so well. There were a lot of tears and screams on Layne's part. I was pretty certain that it just wasn't going to happen. But they did great!
Lots of practice before the wedding.

Buddies.
Hayden signed her name and Layne's to the guest book!
Hangin' with Pappy at the beach on Sunday.

Trying to teach Hayden how to swim. She wasn't as petrified as last year!

Florida Weekend

We headed down to Florida last weekend for Pappy's wedding. It was a nice little pre-summer get away. Of course, we had to spend some time in Pappy's pool!!
The flower princesses did a wonderful job! I did not even bring my camera on the trip-these were all taken with my phone. BUT, Morgan took some great pictures of the weekend, so I will post some of hers soon :)

We even spent some time a the beach on Mother's Day. Pappy covered the girls in sand!

Sprinklers!

Daddy has taken over the gardens this year! He prepared and planted the vegetable gardens and he's in the process of pruning and weeding the flower garden. The girls LOVE to help him.
