Melanie's Visit

My twin sister, Melanie, and her son, Anthony, came in town two weeks ago for a visit, while Mario (Mel's hubby) went to an out of town wedding. We had so much fun just hanging out and relaxing. I miss her so much and wish she was a little closer to home, but maybe she will be one day!

We went to the the zoo for Anthony and James' first visit! They loved seeing the animals even though we went too close to dinner time, and many animals were already inside dining when we got to their lairs.

James wore his "Born to be Wild" outfit. I thought it worked well being at the zoo.

I thought this pic is funny. It looks like James is scared of something on the other side of the glass. Maybe the lizard? Or maybe he is just staring with his mouth open like he normally does:)

Meme loves the penguins and Anthony loved them too! This picture looks like mom is feeding miniature penguins (bc of the angle)... haha.

I think Anthony REALLY liked the penguins!

Ok.. this video is hilarious (funnier if you were there, though). The huge apes were swinging and slamming their bodies into the glass! I don't think they liked us looking at them!

Meme with both her boys!
Such a sweet picture. These cousins are going to love each other and their meme so much!

This is my twin sis, Melanie, and my neighbor and good friend, Amber. Both are due with their second child in January! I love the height difference!
Mel is 5'2 and Amber is 5'10

I had to get the stair step picture. I fall right in between them at 5'6!
We had a little play date with James, Anthony, and Taylor. Why didn't we get a picture of them???

Mandy's 5k

A couple weekends ago, Mandy had the opportunity to run in the Race for the Cure 5K! There were TONS of people there, but we all had a lot of fun.

Justin took care of James the whole time we were there. He is such a great daddy! It was a little bit chilly, so we had James all bundled up.

James during the race and afterward!
What a good boy!

Justin got a picture of me when I was finishing the race.
I finished with a time of 27.23 @ an 8.50 min pace.
I was hoping for under a nine min. pace!
I got 284th place overall and 107th place in the female category. Not something to brag about, but fun to know anyways! I think there were about 11oo timed participants, so not bad!

Going for a walk in the cold!

Practicing sitting in his high chair

Our neighbor, Amber, let James borrow her daughter's exersaucer.
James LOVES the mirror.

Going for a jog with Mommy!

James likes to "fake cough".... so funny!

James ate his first bowl of rice cereal a few nights ago!
He seemed to love it and has been doing great ever since.
