My little Rae Rae is sooo sweet! She is talking like crazy and it is adorable. One of my favorite things she says is "yes"...not just because it's a nice break from hearing "no" constantly but because she pronounces it so clearly and it is soooo stinkin' cute. Rae's vocabulary has grown tremendously in the last month. She can say just about anything. Some of her favorite sayings are: where did he/she/they go? ~ i don't know~ i go outside~me up please~i want walk~i want play~i want snack (she doesn't always grasp that I can't magically make snacks appear when she decides she wants one...like in the car for example)~i want drinkee~where my cupee go?~binki are you (when looking for her binki, meaning where are you)~i want out (she picked this up on vacation meaning she wanted out of her pack-n-play)~she also says "i wanna kiss" but not nearly as much as i'd like her too~and really the list can go on and on (she doesn't say that, that is me speaking...just makin' sure every one's following along ;0). The other thing Rae has become fluent at is tattling. I can't imagine where she gets this from (totally being sarcastic). I tell Kenna and Chloe all the time she gets these little habits from them. Anyhow, if Rae feels wronged in anyway shape or form she will so tell on the perpetrator. Uh-huh, she will and does believe me. All day long Rae will tell. It usually comes out something like this...mommy, Riley no me. Usually meaning Riley won't share. She also will tell on Chloe, Kenna, Tinkerbell, daddy you name it NOBODY is safe. She will even tell daddy if mommy says something or does something she doesn't like. Usually sounds a little something like this...daddy mommy no me. Sometimes there is some jabbering in there too but she makes her point. My little informer maybe one day it will pay off...look out Kenna and Chloe cuz Rae will most definitely tell. Riley is starting to catch on to this and has started tell as well. I'll post about my little Ri Ri small fry tomorrow.

wow, seriously i can't believe i did it. i knew i wanted too. i thought i could but it's work. of course it is. we were up and on the road at 6:30am. the race started at 7:30am which is a good thing considering it was already 79 degrees. i believe the race temperature was right around 88-90 degrees. some of the trail was in the shade so that was a welcome relief. i am really proud of myself and very eager to run my next race. i can't believe that i would ever be able to run three miles and actually consider it to be "not that far". what's next??? well, i'm gonna start training for a 10k because this time i know i can do it!

somebody forgot to check the memo we ordered sunshine. come on seriously does it have to rain for the full 2+ weeks we are on vacation??? okay, so it didn't rain EVERYDAY we were at Myrtle Beach but it was always in the forecast looming overhead...we did get rain but it wasn't a complete wash out. today is our first day in Florida and guess what???... thunderstorms!!! Uh-huh just when i thought we were gonna have a nice day at the brand new PIER Park i'm talking almost a million square feet of shopping every womans dream and every husbands nightmare. i have been waiting, anticipating and then just as we walk out of Margaritaville after enjoying the most amazing lunch here it comes. i'm thinking it followed us. you think??? well, i'm a pretty positive person so i've decided we are going to enjoy whatever sunshine we get for however long lounging at the pool. after all there is bound to be some right? right! still need to upload photos probably tonight. thanks for all your well wishes! oh yeah and get this the babies did so good on the drive here i could hardly believe it. if they have a major breakdown on the final trek (16 hour drive) home i so can not blame them. we are thinking about making a pit stop at cousin doug, dusti, allie and abby's house on the way home. now i better go call and make sure that's okay with them before they read this :0) it's a good halfway point.

We are in full vacation swing...the weather could be better but it could also be much worse! Lots of clouds and a little rain and very little sunshine...but I still got a tiny burn today. The girls are having a blast. Makenna is loving the ocean and Chloe is loving the lazy river. The twins aren't quite sure. Riley cruised the pool in her car float while Rae opted to stay and watch from the side lines. All in all we can't complain. Reagan and Riley did extremely well with the car ride. We left our house around 1:00am and Ri slept most of the 10 hour drive. Rae slept about 5 hours and then decided she was up...very unlike her but to our surprise she was in a great mood. Things started getting a little hairy the last hour or so but we stopped for a late breakfast and that made the last leg much more bearable. Tinkerbell is at the kennel we will pick her up Saturday and then head for Florida. Hopefully, the drive goes just as smooth...what? it could happen. Okay, so not likely but for now I'll continue to dream ;0). Okay, time to tuck the babies in bed...it is way past their bed time I know but that's vacation for you.

a broken toe! Ouch...that's right ladies and gentlemen I broke my baby toe. On the flip side since I haven't been able to put on a running shoe and run my ankle is feeling much better :0). we leave for vaca in 2 days and I have sooo much to do...imagine that. Packing for a family of six for several weeks is not an easy task. i'll try to update a little while i'm on vaca but it probably won't be until we hit florida. our first stop is myrtle beach...we love it there. pray for good weather and I'll see ya (you know what i mean) l8tr.
