The Arizona Distance Classic Half Marathon

This is the first time I have ever run a 1/2 marathon. My goal was to finish without walking, and I did it! I ran it in 2 hours and 12 minutes, which was alot better than I thought I would do. Let me just say that I have the best little fans in the world cheering me on


This was a pretty awesome picnic that the Base put on. There was so much for the kids to do; pony rides, bounce houses, face painting and a petting zoo. Here is Brook, Maddy and Georgia with a miniature pony.Justice with her friend Arden trying to hold that poor bunny.
Madison holding a bird. I am not sure what it was about the little chickens and turkeys, but the girls could not get enough. They were here forever!
Here are all the girls with their friends JayLynn and Arden.

The community we live in puts on a fun activity for family's to fish at the lake. We all got up early to make in down to the lake by 7am. The girls were all able to buy a new fishing pole, which come to find out we were not well pre-pared. We had no tools to cut the line or pliers to put the sinkers on with. In the end Matt's teeth worked just as good, LOL. The morning was actually alot colder than we expected it to be, so we all froze. We did not get so much as a bite, the girls didn't seem to mind. They had fun just reeling the line back in.

BookerBee's New Baby Doll

One thing that I am really thankful for is that all the girls are so loving to Troy. They really do just love him to pieces. Matt let Brooklyn take Troy for a couple spins around the house in the stroller.
This little guy is really in for it with 4 older sisters!

Some Fun At The Park

We took the girls to the park right around the block, played some ball,tag & flew a kite. If you look close enough to the picture you can see Brooklyn riding her scooter through the grass. Madison did lose her grip on the handle and the kite went flying into a tree. I thought it was a goner for sure, but Matt was able to get it out.
Before we left the girls had some crab walk races.

This is what Brookerbee looks like after a couple of hours at the park.

Matts New Work

Since we have been in Arizona we have not been to see Matt, and his new jet... The A10. The girls and I took dinner up and spent some time in his new office. We took a tour around one of the hangers.

I dread the Dentist

Ok, the good news is that no one had cavities. In fact everyone is doing a good job brushing their teeth. The bad news is Madison had to get one of her baby molars pulled. About a year ago Madison had to get a silver crown put on a molar. Come to find out she has an infection on it. We had no idea, shes never complained once about it hurting. I guess that its so serious that they did not even want to wait for a follow up appointment. They pulled it right then and there. She was so brave, never even cried. She was so excited to put her tooth under her pillow for the tooth fairy.

Spring Break

The girls have been on Spring Break all week. We decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather and go swimming at the Club house.

Leprechaun Trap

Thank goodness Matt is so good at this kind of thing. Justice's homework was to build a leprechaun trap. So Matt and Justice came up with this box that spins round and round, once the lepreachan takes the gold. It was pretty cute and Justice says that all her friends loved it.
