Thanks {and Weekend Recap}


Hello friends...and happy Monday!  I'm popping in with a super CAS card.  This card will be going to a co-worker as a thank you for a job well done.  Hopefully it doesn't look to Christmas like with the color combo, but it is for a guy so I didn't have any other enamel dot colors that weren't feminine!  

We had a super busy weekend and I thought I'd share pictures of everything that went on around our neck of the woods.  Saturday morning started off with Ryan, Jonathon and me running a 5k to benefit prostate cancer. It was an absolutely gorgeous weekend. Ryan quickly left us behind running it in 23 min 15 sec and Jonathon finished at 30 min 9 seconds with me next to him at 30 min 12 seconds. Ryan has just recently started running.  I think his time was amazing!

Next up...Marcel started fall baseball. Doesn't he look adorable?  He asks Pat every day to throw with him or to pitch to him. He's certainly caught the baseball bug since the spring season.  I think he looks pretty adorable in his uniform.

And we finished off the day with Ryan heading off to homecoming.  One of the moms was super kind and had all 18 kids over to the house for dinner.  They went as a big group instead of with specific dates for them and they had an absolute blast.  I think they all look so handsome and gorgeous!




It was a super fun weekend...and we were ready to relax with a glass of wine/beer on Saturday night!

Amazing you and the two boys ran the 5K, what an amazing accomplishment and for such a good cause! Absolutely the cutest in his baseball uniform, I see so much of you in him.
