Mommy in the Mud!

My friend Kristin and I "raced" in the Original Mud Run on Saturday. You won't ever catch me doing a marathon of any kind, but this was different....and fun! While our husbands went on their annual camping trip, we challenged ourselves to this 6.2 obstacle course. Going in, we were so nervous! The first 1.8 miles is just running...then the obstacles hit. Crawling through mud, jumping in muddy water, sliding down muddy hills, climbing high onto walls/nets, walking on logs and ropes - all part of this crazy course! My only regret is that this doesn't happen more than once a year in Houston - we want to do it again!!!!

Here we are after the race getting hosed off by firefighters!

My muddy partner! Next year, we want a bigger team! If we can do it, anyone can! You'll laugh more than anything.

Kristin - thanks for signing up with me! I am SO proud of us - bruises and soreness included! We did each obstacle (well, except for that crazy rope monkey bar thing...) without hesitation. WE ROCK!

My new friend...

My friend from college came to visit us this weekend. We decided to stop talking about it and JUST DO IT! Julianna and I have known each other from the very first moment I walked on A&M's campus. We were in the same group/cabin at fish camp, same rush group, then we became lifelong friends through Pi Phi :) We have made many good (and quite funny) memories so we had to have our boys meet for the first time....

Griffin and Owen played SO well together. I never heard "mine" or witnessed any throwing or fighting. In fact, Griffin keeps asking for Owen, Scott, and Julianna.

Thanks for coming over Moorad family! We are not waiting this long again - Griffin just won't have it, and his mommy won't either! :)

Our weekend (through the iPhone)!

We had a fun weekend (again!)! I had my phone out here and there so enjoy some pics!

He loves going in our closet to wear our shoes (both mom's and dad's!). I love how he put on Hans's socks too. He is getting so big.

We then hit Addison's 2nd birthday. Brave boy loved the slide - he even went down by himself!

What's a weekend without Braxton??

G and I walked down to the park on Sunday. Daddy picked us up so we got to ride in the back of his truck. I mean, is this one cute kid or what? I just can't stand it. Dear God, please don't ever lose those cheeks.


Kiki and Jason came over so I hitched a ride with Kiki on the 4 wheeler. Let's just say it didn't really go anywhere, but we sure thought it was funny.

I LOVE my time with this precious boy. He is so fun to talk to and comes up with the craziest stuff to say. Lately, he will say, "Mommy, you are pretty. Pretty like a princess." Not sure where he got it or if he's trying to talk himself out of trouble, but I'll take it!

Mi-Maw's Birthday!

We met my family in Kings Harbor this weekend for my Mom's birthday. Here is my sweet one bringing some pink roses to his Mi-Maw! He picked them out just for her!

The gigantic straw my brother concocted. He also taught him to shoot ice through it. Joy.

Keaton, Gunar, and Griffin. How they got them so still, I'd like to know.

G and his Uncle Doug :)

After dinner, we played in the water. G wasn't sure at first so Doug brushed him through it a few times.

And soon.....we had this.

Such fun with my family! Happy birthday to my amazing and beautiful Mom! We love you!
