2013: My year in Review (Picture Edition)

I know I just posted a my year of running but, I thought it would be nice to look back at the other adventures we had this year. I guess this would be more for my benefit because sometimes you forget everything that happened throughout the year.

Enjoy!

January

We went to a local Youth museum. It was pretty much a huge playroom where the kids could run around and play with anything and everything. Obviously by the picture Z really enjoyed it.

February 2013

This was my 5th half marathon. Surf City half marathon in Huntington Beach, CA. This was also my first race while on the Paleo “diet” and was defiantly  able to tell a difference in my running. I didn’t get tired so quickly and run out of gas. I was strong all the way to the end.

Z’s first Easter egg hunt with the Stroller Stride group! Literally within the last week he had just started to FINALLY walk. He really enjoyed shaking the plastic eggs.

Christmas Eve. Reading to Z, Twas the Night before Christmas. That book was the same book that my Dad read to my brother and I growing up. It has been in the family for over 30 years.

    You guys are adorable.
    Highlight of the year- starting and keeping a blog… never thought I’d do it. Another highlight- we bought our first house and I couldn’t love it more 🙂

    • Yes, buying your first house is a big highlight! Even though I didn’t start my blog until march but I should add the blog thing to my highlights as well. I get very bored pretty quickly with things so I’m surprised that I have kept it going for as long as I have. Happy New Year Cori!!

  2. Such a fantastic year for you and the family! Crazy how much Z has grown since Easter!
    Wishing you many more miles in 2014!

  3. It looks like you had a great year! Here’s to a HEALTHY and happy 2014!
