Weekend roundup ... and then some!

I'm falling behind!  Between faux marathon training (I have Big Sur this weekend), chasing the boys around, soccer practice, gardening, and more it's been tough to find a minute.  So here's the roundup for this weekend and then some...

The boys have started soccer and are TOTALLY hooked:

Wilson mostly enjoys sitting in the net, and Cole takes off running around the field and then during down time Cole "makes picnics" with his friend from school.

To keep the passion going, we brought the boys to a Sounders game.  In a word, awesome.  Last weekend we did a double soccer day with practice in the morning, then Sounders in the afternoon. 

That same day I managed to do a double run day with a 5mi in the morning and another 5mi in the afternoon.  My double header was boosted by my new CEP compression tights - never thought I'd get these but I LOVE them.

This past weekend, we gardened for about 6 hours enjoying breaks from the rain.  The rain is great, but it's making the weeds grow like ... weeds.  We also took in a little hike in Discovery Park and then went boating with some friends.

Our friends from SF were also visiting this weekend.  Unfortunately it was gray or rainy almost all weekend.  Today was another story of course.

Good neighbors

We love our neighbors!  Twice a week now our neighbor makes and brings us dinner because she thinks "we deserve a break."  The boys love our neighbors too - so much so that they've taken to putting on shows for them:

Weekend roundup: Easter

This past weekend was a rare Seattle sunny weekend in the Spring - and it was awesome!  Saturday I did a semi long run at 11.5 (too short for "real" training but that's OK), then we had some friends over from the boys' school for egg dying.  When the house was thoroughly covered in food coloring, we headed outside to garden.

Sunday we woke much too early.  The boys were dying to go to Church (that's what happens when pre-school is in a Methodist Church) so we made our way to the morning Easter service.  After that we packed up quickly and went to my cousin's house in Bellevue for Easter brunch and a giant egg hunt.  Sitting on the porch in the sun eating too much candy and sipping mimosa - perfect Sunday in my opinion.

When we arrived home after Easter brunch, Cole insisted on our 3rd egg hunt so we quickly smattered the lawn with plastic and dyed eggs.
