Dirt, Bugs, & Racoons

We just went on a fun camping trip with our friends and neighbors, the Coon's: Dallas, Issac, Bennett, Maysen, and cute baby Gage! We had a blast hanging around the campfire, hiking, playing hide-and-go-seek, and napping under the shade of the only large tree the campsite had.

The first night, we had several visitors around our tent all night long - James assured me that they were probably just mice, but I wasn't convinced! So here I am crafting my very own weapon, just in case! Turns out that the lethal predators that I was so worried about were only racoons!

A camping trip just wouldn't be complete without roasting some hot dogs over an open fire! Dallas and Issac made dutch oven peach cobbler and it was seriously yummy!

After a weekend of dirty camping, here we are exhausted and ready to go home and take a shower! What a fun weekend!

Ready to Run!

I did it! I ran my first half marathon, 13.1 straight miles! It's crazy to think that just 6 months ago I couldn't even run for one mile and here I am, a long-distance runner! It rained for the entire race, but I survived. When I crossed that finish line, I burst into tears... I've never felt more proud of myself! I finished a HALF MARATHON!!! Yay!
