    We just had quite a busy weekend! My Aunt Mary, Uncle Roland, Grandma and Great Aunt Arlene all visited from IL (and FL) to see my parents new place up in Mound. They came a little early and stayed over at our house Friday night to make their drive a little shorter. I ran a 4 mile Women's Race Saturday morning, which was the hardest run I have ever completed. It was a very hot and sticky day and I was just not prepared for the issues I had. I almost actually quit the race after the first mile, but somehow pulled myself together to finish in under the goal time I set myself. I am incredibly proud!

    After the race, we all drove up to Mom and Dad's for a nice day of barbecuing, playing games and just hanging out. Benjamin was able to spend some time with his Great Grandma and everyone else, you can see them enjoying a game in the photo.

    Sunday morning we drove out to White Bear Lake for the baptism of our godson and Joe and Jen's newest little one, John Warren. It was a beautiful day and we are so proud to be honored with being his godparents. John was such a good boy and nearly slept through the whole event! The entire family then went back to Joe and Jen's for a tasty brunch. All of us "kids" were even able to sneak away without our own kids for a while to a restaurant, which was so much fun!!

    Here is a photo of the proud godparents and sleeping John:
