And we're walking!!!

Well my camera sucks and I caught it at the wrong moment. But, Avery is walking. Her best record so far is 11 steps. Yeah!!! Its really cute. She loves crawling up the stairs at my parents house. She just crawls around so fast it is really unbelievable.

Avery loves to "read" books. She turns the pages and feels all the fuzzy parts of the books. Its quite cute.

You are all probably wondering about the bruise on her head. Holy cow it was so sad. She is taking some steps on her own now and I just want to put a helmet on her head or some bubble wrap or something. She totally fell and hit her head on a chair. It was horrible.

Man, Avery loves this tape measure.

Here is the Fam at my sister Corins graduation.

Mud Run

This last Saturday was the Mud Run here on the Naval Air base in Lemoore. It was a 5mile run through the mud. It was so much fun. We literally had to swim through mud neck deep at some points during the run. There was walls to climb over, tunnels to climb through, crawling on your hands and knees through the mud, and rope swings. It was crazy. These pictures are of me, my sister Kilean and my friend Ali Ross. We would have taken more pictures, but sure enough our battery died. Gotta love it. Anyways, we literally had to duct tape our shoes to our feet. It was so hard because the mud was 2-3 feet deep in some places. We had so much fun though. It was the hardest 5 miles I have ever run. No joke. Our shoes were caked with mud and so were our clothes. I think we weighed an extra 20 pounds. After the race there were fire trucks spraying people off. Next year we are thinking unitards. You know, the ones that triathlon runner wear. The ones that are all spandex and have just a hole cut out for your head. It was a blast.
