No More Snoozin....

This is one of my new shoes....I love Sauconys..
they are great running shoes. Can you believe
I had to get a 10 1/2...yikes!

The kids playing at the playground by our house.

My 3 musketeers....

Riding their bikes on the trail while daddy and I
got our jog on... :)

The lent season is upon us and I have decided I would give up hitting the snooze, really I'm serious.
