Sometimes I like to use my big guns camera to take photos of my littles but lately the iPhone has been handy to capture firsts and fun moments and the story of our lives. I thought I would start to collect these memories in Snapshots so that they don’t live only on my phone. Here are a few from the past few weeks that I know I will want to remember always. Enjoy!
It’s not often that we get lucky enough to get a shot of all of us together. But this weekend we were just that lucky. It was cold and rainy and Sippy was recovering from “Mommy really wants me to wear my costume at the pumpkin patch even though its freezing out”-induced near hypothermia but it looks just perfect to us.
A few weeks ago we all headed to Portland to watch Daddy run. Like run alot. Like run in a marathon. Whoa!
Daddy had to get up really early so Sippy and I slept in until a leisurely 6:45 and grabbed some grub before heading out to see Daddy finish for the win. & of course Daddy did totally awesome.
Sippy and I had a bit of a hard time finding Daddy at the finish because he ran so so fast we totally missed him. So we were mighty happy to catch up to him when we finally figured out where he’d parked himself after his long long run.
Sippy decided at that point that she had clearly been standing around and waiting long enough. It was time for a rest. On Daddy. We’re not sure how Daddy felt about that after running 26.2 miles.
Maybe a change of position would help. And a proud display of Daddy’s race bib as “Fiona’s Da”. Pretty cool, huh Sippy?
And you know whats even better as a post-marathon cool down? Sippy thought that Daddy could use a nice shower and then walk those muscles out so as to prevent lactic acid build up with a good wagon pull.
But – you know what? Turns out Daddy was right – these marathons sure are exhausting!
Congratulations Daddy! You rocked it Marathon Man!!
