Evey Belle's Baptism

My beautiful niece Evey was baptized on Sunday, it was such a beautiful service, she was an amazing girl and didn't make a peep through it at all! :)

She truly looked like a doll in her beautiful gown.  There was a lovely celebration lunch afterwards at a really cute place in Swisher called Kava House & Cafe, we definitely need to go there sometime for their specialty dinners on Saturday nights!

The sweet little angel :)

St. Louis Half Marathon

Shalae and I did it, we ran the half marathon and survived :)  Toughest physical challenge I've done yet, we'll see if the fitness show proves to be even tougher ;)

Before the race, so early, but still happy :)

There were soooooo many people, we were in corral B.

Enjoying it still at mile 6 :)

Cramped up the last mile and a half but mustered a smile for Mindy ;)

Love you Shalae and so proud of us!

Thanks Mindy for going with me, taking photos, and rocking out with me in the car :)

Big Girl

Our big girl all ready for her graduation pictures.  I truly can't believe how grown up she is, such a little beauty and we love her so much!!!

Catching Up

Well it has been a while since I've posted, oops :)  I thought this update could be a kind of "photo" update!

We had a wonderful Easter with our family, there has been lots of snuggle time with our nieces Evey and Lyla, both are five months already!  Kyle has started a part-time job personal training and he is LOVING it.  We don't see him nearly as much but the sacrifice will be worth it.

Bella will be graduating from preschool next month and she is truly growing up, she continues to improve on her reading and she can even sign the alphabet song.  She will be starting soccer tonight, so we are pretty busy between dance, soccer, Kyle working extra, my volunteer time with the horses and of course my upcoming half marathon.

Sweet Evey, she has the whitest hair I've ever seen on a baby and is such a little dolly.

One of my new favorite photos of Kyle and Bella :)

Love these big blue eyes.

Reggie Bear, just wanted everyone to see how very tall my "little" nephew is, he is a freshman in high school this year :)
