My New Hobby

I'm super excited to be running (slowly, but doing it frequently). I started this new hobby to help me lose weight, but now I want to lose weight because I want to be better at it.

Here's some pictures of a couple races I did in April and May. We worked really hard to run all the way!

Rosie and I. Running of the Bears in Montgomery.  I finished this one in 34:27 (5K).

Carmen, I and Melissa. Impact a Hero Race. Finished this one in 36:10 (5K). It was hot!

Jack Is 3!

What can I say about this little guy?
He still walks on his tip toes as if it's the most natural form of walking.
He thinks everything in our house is his and he tells us so.
He sits on our cat every single morning and then proceeds to give her a hug and kiss.
He is not content until all our 1,000 hot wheels are spread out all over the house.
He watches the same Monster Truck show and Mighty Machines series every. single. day.
He loves yogurt and applesauce more than anything else in the world.
He tries to run out the house any chance he gets just like a puppy.
He loves being outside, even when it's super hot.
His favorite phrase is "Jack faz." (Jack do it).
He's super affectionate, funny and independent.
He loves music. He especially likes singing Brazilian songs with mommy.

Catching Up

It's been about seven months I don't blog. Time is going by so fast! So much has happened during this time.
In November 2012, I was called as my Ward's Primary President (and thus why I haven't blogged :-). We celebrated Thanksgiving at home and made rack of lamb for the first time. Yum!
 In December our family went to Utah for Christmas. One of the events was seeing the Nutcracker! Michael also had a nice orchestra concert in school.
In January I had my birthday and Julianna was a finalist in the school district's art contest! We also went to a Monster Truck show for the first time. We met with the Iron Man Driver!!
In February we had Michael's birthday. Valentine's Day was fun for me and Marco. We went to a nice romantic dinner at Northwest Conference Center.
In March we had Marco's birthday and Raphael competed in the Rodeo's Mutton Bustin'. We also had Easter at the end of the month.
In April I ran my 3rd 5K race (first after four years!). Michael broke his arm jumping hurdles in school.
May just started, but there'll be plenty to celebrate in the next few weeks. :-)
