Friday we had a wisdom shower for Matt and Pauline. I told Drew before we went that I felt slightly inadequate to go to wisdom shower... eight and a half years in and I feel like my list of wisdom looks more like a list of "what not to do" in marriage :) One of the best things about wisdom showers is that you walk away encouraged even if you're not the one who is being showered upon. I sat there the entire 2 hours just soaking in the wisdom that other couples came to share. Drew and I left refreshed.
Saturday Drew was running in the Race for the Cure and I decided to tag along with the boys. Initially Drew was hesitant at how things would work out, but it really wasn't that bad. Aside from a few implosions because the boys wanted out of the stroller while I was by myself (the combination of large crowds and roaming children make my stomach queasy so staying in the stroller was mandatory while Daddy was running), things went really well. They had a ton of fun stuff for the boys to do, including a fun run for little kids. They also had a lot of vendors giving away free stuff. We got a bit of things, but honestly, I get nervous around all of the hoarders that seem to think that throwing elbows, shoving and pushing are necessary for a sample size of Pantene Pro-V. People were stashing handfuls of the bottles in their bags as if Sunday was the next Armageddon and we were going to be on shampoo shortage for years. I'll skip the madness and fork over the $5 for a bottle of shampoo, thanks ;)
Before the race we found a firetruck and the firemen were kind enough to let the boys get in the truck and show them around. Brayden and Connor were in HEAVEN.
they had all kind of carnival games for the kids to play
they gave away watermelon. The man gave C a piece without even asking me and at the sametime said "goodbye white shirt." Clearly he didn't notice it was a nice Ralph Lauren shirt. I was kind of frustrated, and VERY grateful that I buy all of their clothes used. For the record, the shirt was ruined :/
I mean, really. Who taught him to pose like this? And when did he turn 15?
Daddy showing him where to run...
Go B GO!
uber fuzzy picture but I love it anyways. Look how determined Brayden looks
Sunday we had a pretty laid back day, with church and community group. We actually hosted community group, which was fun since they had been praying for our housing situation all year.
We have a busy couple of weeks ahead of us for the month of May. Hopefully I'll be able to stay on top of blogging. Hope yall have a great week!
