Busy Busy

We have had so much going on and have been terrible at blogging, so here it goes. Friday we flew to San Francisco and stayed at the InterContinental, which was a really nice hotel.
On saturday we walked down Embarcadaro and went to the farmers market, then walked to Fishermans Wharf. We went to the Wax Museum which was kinda creepy. I kept expecting them to jump out at me, and then did some shopping. On Sunday we woke up at 4a.m. for the San Francisco Marathon. Mike and Bentley cheered me on at the start and 13.1miles and 2hrs 7mins later they cheered my name as I ran in. The run was amazing! Alcatraz looked really spooky at 5:45 a.m. with the thick fog surrounding it. It looked like something from a horror movie. The Golden Gate Bridge was also one of the highlights of my run, although it was really cold and windy. I took the first half pretty easy but I ran the last 7.5 miles in 52mins!

On tuesday we got a sitter and went to LA and ate at Dolce for Josh's (Mike's BFF) birthday. (Isn't he cute? He's single if you all know any cute girls, let's hook em' up!) It was alot of fun, we haven't been on a date in forever.

Today was Makayla's birthday and she's 6! I can't believe it! It's so sad to see her getting older. We had Audrey, Johnny, Eli, and Taylor come over for a little party, they all played so well together. Her Dad was able to come too. We got Sprinkles Cupcakes which were soooo good, we still have some left over and I'm having a terrible time ignoring them. Mak got alot of great presents. After pin the spot on the ladybug everyone played dress up. We had everthing from a princess the hulk and batman running around. It has definately been a fun week and we are so happy to have the kids home for a few days.



Sounds like you guys are having a lot of fun! Congrats on the marathon that is truly a great accomplishment!
