I feel the same way Lily! :)

My mom and cousin snapped these two pictures today. Anyone who knows Lily knows that falling asleep like this NEVER happens! That's what happens when she gets up at 5:00 am.

What's going on?

It has been another busy week! The end of the school year is always crazy. Track practices and meets have been making it even more nuts! :) It is hard to believe that it will be May soon.

FIRST OFF: Happy belated 29th birthday to my sister Sarah! :)

Knee updates: I went to the doctor, and it looks like my ITband (muscle from knee to hip) is a bit of a mess. It is mostly inflamation-this is a good thing because it can be treated. I will be going to physical therapy a couple times a week for some stretches and scar tissue scraping. I just finished a week of steriods. I have run once and been in the pool a few times this week. I plan on running several times next week (still not too long, but more than this week). Knock on wood-everything feels much better. I cannot wait to go to Florida next month! I know it sounds crazy to most, but this race is just what I need right now. Lots of time on the road with Traci, and hopefully, an ice, cold margarita at the finish!

Hello World!

It seems like it has been forever since I made a post! Track meets officially started last week. This makes for some really late evenings. I am happy to report we are 2-0! Off to a great start but always bigger goals to reach.

Training for my race is going okay. It was much easier to run when Traci was here! I was more motivated. My knee hasn't been cooperating, so this week I have been icing and cutting back slightly. We will see if I can get a nice, long run in this weekend. I am trying to get Jeff and Lily to bike with me, so I have someone to talk to!

Lily is doing great. She is full of personality! She talks more everyday and seems to teach me something new. I just got done reading her collection of Dr. Seuss books with her and listening to her sing. Every time I leave the house, she asks "Is mommy running?" I think it is cute that she pays attention to what I am doing. Lately, she has loved spending time helping me pull weeds (she mostly digs in the dirt). I am looking forward to this summer because I know we will get to run around and do fun things together.

I am also happy to report that Jeff and I mailed in our 2008 and 2009 taxes today! You have no idea how much stress this has been causing me! The damage wasn't too bad! :)

Here are some of the latest pics of our happy, growing 2 year old!

Hello Jeff Junior!

yes...she is sweeping the deck!

More Easter and Avery...

Yesterday, Chris, Pat, Holly, and I were able to go to Columbus for the afternoon to meet baby Avery. She is just ADORABLE! It was so nice to see Caitlyn, Dan, and Jen too. Everyone seems to be doing well. Here are a few pics I snapped yesterday...

Avery Elizabeth Quinn

Our new niece was born this afternoon! Avery Elizabeth was 8lbs 13oz. She is the second daughter of Jeff's brother Dan and his wife Jen. I am going to be able to go to Columbus tomorrow and see her. Congrats to Dan, Jen, and big sister Caitlyn!

Happy Easter

Happy Easter everyone! Lily woke up and found her Easter basket...she was sooo excited. The Easter bunny brought her some gummy filled eggs, coloring and sticker books, and crayons. We headed to church after. It was decorated with bright, beautiful flowers! What a great Mass! Thanks to Jason for wonderful music as always :)

We were also treated to a nice meal at Nana's house-beef and noodles, mashed potatoes, ham, and all kinds of sides. The kids hunted almost 300 eggs outside. Lily had a blast. Here are some pictures from this morning. I will have more later after we head to the Greiner Easter celebration!

here is her basket-I never got a picture of it filled! She was too quick!

this was the best family photo we could get-Lily was interested in running around outside!
