These cute kids belong to me! Please excuse Brooke. She was crying for some reason. I can't even remember why now. Then after church her mouth was blue from some candy. I was destined to not get a good picture.

This year Wenatchee weekend fell on Easter Weekend. It's not very good timing if you have children, and your husband lives in another state. We decided we would leave early Friday morning and come back Saturday evening. It actually worked out great, and as always I had so much fun. We got into Leavenworth just in time to eat at Fresh Burger. It was a really yummy hamburger place that filled us up until we shopped around a little, picked up our packets and made our way to Visconti's. The #1 Italian restaurant in Washington! After dinner we headed back to our room to talk and just enjoy each others company. I was in a room with Amy, Kirsten, and Ashley.
After the race, we went to the famous Cafe Rio (that is not anywhere close to Puyallup)for some yummy post race food. I enjoyed my 2500 calorie meal.

It's been 3 weeks since I've seen Sean. I know that's not a long time, but I still have 4 weeks until he comes homes for one last visit. This has been a true test for us and as much as I don't want to move, I can't wait to wake up in his arms every morning. I want to be there when he gets home from work. I want to go to church as a family every Sunday. I want to go out on regular dates. I just want to be a family again!!! When we get there it will be a little over 7 months since this all started. At times, I really didn't think we would survive, but I know we will and we will be stronger because of it!
All of me loves all of him!

Amy and I have been walking for months now. It's usually on Tuesday and Thursday right after we drop off the kids. I have 1 hour before I need to head down to crossfit. We walk in the cold, rain, snow and sun. Lately it has been pretty nice and this was our shadow and our walk this past Thursday. I will miss this time with Amy. We talk about anything and everything as we walk and sometime run. I hope I can find running, walking, and crossfitting friends in Utah! All my friends will be sorely missed!
My parents took out 2 trees in their yard a few days ago and I used my dead lifting skills to help with the clean up. Sometimes it just feels good to feel strong! Excuse the face. I never can make a decent face lifting something heavy.
