On the top of the mountain.
We let Dylan eat 3! And he would have kept going if we didn't make him stop!
Cadence really only likes the frosting and sprinkles :)
I don't get to hike very much and I was feeling it...this is how I felt once I finally arrived at top :). Thankful to be sitting down!
The sun went down quickly as we started our way down. Mark was able to capture this really great picture of the sunset with the city lights.
I really appreciate having these moments with Mark.
I painted, made some curtains out of fabric I had (and made the rod out of spray painted pvc pipe...cost about $1.50), put fabric on shelf because of contact paper that was previously put on shelf and then painted over and it was impossible to remove. I fastened the fabric with push pins to front of shelf. And bought a chair from Craigslist.

I made these tree pieces (the trunk is each kids arm and hand) awhile ago and I had them in some black frames without glass (it is canvas with mod podge all over) but never really like the way it looked. So, since I love my pallet project I did so much I decided just to put some pallet wood together vertical as the backdrop. I love it so much!
And the last piece of wood was from what I think was a portion of a old drop leaf table, it had these really great old rusty hinges so I just took them off and reattached to the front for extra flair and again drilled holes and attached 2 drawer handles. Pulled a piece of fabric across and clipped some clothes pins on to hold the art!
Simple projects, FREE and I love that it adds more character to our house! :)

The kids and I met him a few different spots. I had the kids make signs. This picture is at mile 20.5 (near Israel & Kati's house). Some friends also came out to cheer him on. It was a lot of fun to encourage the runners as they went by.
We felt a little guilty having the kids eating donuts in front of everyone as they ran by...but the kids enjoyed it. :)
Mark is sore but doing good. He says he wants to do it again!
This is a video of his last bit to the finish line!

"Zaccheus was a wee little man, a wee little man was he. He climbed up in the sycamore tree for the Lord he wanted to see..."
A little bit later I heard Dylan singing as he was putting his shoes on, "...He climbed up in the Eskimo tree for the Lord he wanted to see."
This morning started off very early and has been rough with cranky kids, was thankful to have something to smile about. :)

And then the we got a tour of the factory where they make all the bears
Then they got to pick out their own bear. Stuff it, sew it up and clean it off. This is Dylan giving it a "bath".
