Memorial Day

I am thankful for all the soldiers that have given the ultimate sacrifice.  I know that I wouldn't have the freedoms I have today, if there weren't soldiers that have fought for it.  I am grateful for the sacrifice all soldiers have made.  They leave their families and friends and go out and fight for freedoms. 

This morning I woke up, knowing that I had to get a run in.  I haven't run in almost a week, because the longer I put it off during the day, the less likely I am to actually do it.  So, I went in, put on some running clothes and announced I was heading out for a run.  That was when my kids and husband announced that they wanted to go also.  So, it turned into a family event.

My two older children, my husband and I ran 4 miles on May 12 for an event.  It took us 52 minutes, but we did it.  I was proud of my children for doing this.  That was the furthest they had gone.

I ran around 2 1/4 miles today.  It was a nice run.  My daughter ran a little bit with me.  I did a little more than 1 mile pushing my baby in the stroller, then my husband took over pushing the stroller.

I came home and did some work and hung out with my children.  I had to get my sister in Salt Lake so my three youngest kids took the trip down there with me.  On the way back, we stopped at BK, and got $1 smoothies. It was good :)

We spent the evening with some family friends we met when they lived back east.  We all live in this area now.  There were a couple that were visiting from back east as well.  They made shish kebab and grilled it outside.  It was so good!  My oldest son even enjoyed some of the vegetables that were on it.  We have made plans to see them again this Saturday.

We put an offer on a house on Saturday.  I am waiting most patiently to hear anything back.  It is not easy to wait to hear anything. 

We had a great day overall.
