Busy Weekend and an Awesome Cause

This weekend we loaded up our family of 4 and headed to North Carolina to visit friends and to run in the Duke 5k for brain tumor research. It was so great to see everyone and to run in such an amazing event.

After the boys nap on Friday, we toted them along to the school I used to teach at and three other friends houses. They were TROOPERS and even though they are a little Mommy needy these days they did well seeing everyone and playing with two cute little girls. I forgot to take pictures of these great visits but was fortunate to have Emily remember to take one of the boys with Emily and Mike's sweet, sweet girl, Lily....

On Saturday morning we were up bright and early to head off to the Duke campus for our race. We were joined by 4 awesome friends and many of you who donated to our team through your gifts and prayers. It meant so much to Jared and I to participate in this and to celebrate all of the blessings we have received over the past 2 years since his surgery. We had a great time and hope to make it an annual trip and event. The boys LOVED watching all of the other racers around us and the fun things to do at the race. After the race, Kara and Monte hosted a cookout at their house to continue the fun filled day!

We can't wait to see all of these wonderful friends again!
