Lots going on....

So this year I have had it with the weeds growing between the stones in our back yard.  We don't have a big back yard.  The pool takes up a lot of room, then there was a lot of concrete.  Was being the key word.  Here are the before pictures.  

Then I got to thinking...I'm a plant killer.  I could water a plant every day and still kill it.  So, This area by the pool, well we're going to close it in and make it more deck.  

Then I got to looking...there were these planters when we moved in.  They collapsed the first summer we were in the house, so we took them down.  Now there is a gap between the deck and the fence.  Yup, you guessed it.  Might as well fill that in too.  

So, as you can see I have about 3 projects I'm juggling at once.  Not only am I juggling those, I've decided to get more organized.  I'm tired of stuff just laying around.  I decided to start juggling a 4th project.  This is the beginning of my organization heaven.  It's going to be hung in the kitchen.  

I'm sure I have other things going on, but for the life of me...I can't think of them :).  So when I remember, look out!  For now, I'm heading to bed along with the rest of the family!  I'm post more soon!

Throo the Zoo 5k!

Cora and I competed in our first 5k.  Well technically it was my third and Cora's 2nd, but this time she could watch everything lol.  The first year I walked it with Mom, the 2nd year I was pregnant and walked with my friend Candy, this year I jogged/walked it!  I did an amazing job if I do say so myself!  I'm so proud.  I ran 2 1/2 miles of the 3.1 mile course and if you have ever been to the Louisville Zoo, that's an awesome accomplishment with all the hills.  I'm still so proud of myself!!  Anyway, Paul and I are going to continue to run together as I have another 5k coming up in July.  Look out Louisville Color Run!!  Cora did great.  She slept pretty much the entire way.  She woke up around the last 100 yards because she heard people yelling.  I came in 1353 with a time of 39:08.0.  Paul's chip didn't read but his watch time was 26.12.0.  There were 2044 chips that read but I've heard that there were several that didn't read so I'll say I was in the middle of the pack lol. 

This weekend was very busy for us.  With the 5k under my belt, we then went to Dennis and Kathy's to celebrate Mother's Day with Grandma Lenfert.  We had brunch there and gave gifts to Kathy.  Then we headed out to Buffalo Trace Campground (if you haven't been there, I recommend it!).  Mom, Dad, Jared, Geoff, Scotty, Emily, Lily, Macy, Phil and Doris were all camping out there.  Jared had a double header (they lost :( ).  

The gifts that the Mother's received are as follows:

They also got an 8 x 10 from Cora's 6 month photoshoot.  It was so hard to choose because there were so many good ones.  I narrowed it down to 5 and then made Paul pick for his mom.  Here are a few of my favorites (there are 119 to choose from):

See I told you it was hard to choose!

They also got something similar to this (for some reason it won't post my actual picture):

So there you go!  Hope all the moms had a fabulous Mother's Day!
