Dorothy's dance recital!!!

I know what you are thinking... another recital?  Yup, but this is the last one till next year!  They had the *CUTEST* dance in the recital while dancing to the song "Ghostbusters!"  Here are pictures of my little star!
Such a little ham!

Fan Club!

The cousins (who BTW all made it into mini-company 2!)


Of course flowers after the performance!!!

Run run as fast as you can!

Last weekend I ran my first race (it's been on my New Year's Resolution list since 2008) it was really fun!  I had great support because Kelly and Allison ran it too!  I surprisingly took 6th place in my age group (I know what?!)  I cannot wait for my 10K next month (after I go to the Dr tomorrow and get the OK because I am having feet *issues*!)
This is me before the race showing the ladies my *RS arms!*

Most of the ladies that ran!

Crossing the finish line, notice the older lady in pink right behind me!

Enjoying our Creamy bars after the race.

Now that I am a "runner" and all I had to take some pictures to prove it!

Hiking up to the Y

I am *trying* to do at least one thing that is fun for the kids every week during Summer vacation.  So I decided to take the kids to hike the Y, now I had not done this hike for about 12 years and totally forgot how HARD it is.  Taking 3 kids and myself a mile up a mountain in the blazing sun = fun for them not for me.  They did enjoy it and actually so did I, but I will not be braving a hike like that without James again:)!  I think I will stick to the movies next time because I would really like to see Kung Fu Panda 2 again.
Preston was the navigator on the way up!

Me and my back pack buddy VJ!

The kids doing a "U" sign on top of they "Y":)

The view was amazing!

We had a little picnic and then hiked down.

We enjoyed looking over the valley the whole way down!

*We are off to the library today to sign up for the Summer reading program, a much less strenuous fun activity if you ask me!*
