Photo Shoot Attempt

Every month we take her picture here to keep track of how much she grows her first year. This is her 5th month picture, it was just too cute to not post!!!!

She has been able to sit all by herself for a couple weeks. She is so strong and so smart!

About 7 months ago Brandon and I decided to get a really nice camera to take nicer pictures of our own. We research and found that the Canon Rebel EOS would be best for our needs. I have a great intrest in photography and love the way you can learn to take great pics. Also since we have a baby now, we thought it would be so fun to capture great looking pics of her. Unfortunatly I am not very good yet. I will keep practicing, and study up on the manual some more!

2010 Half Marathon here I come!

My second time at the Disney half marathon 2o07.
My favorite athletic supporter at the finish! Check out that medal!

The last race I ran was the PF Changs Rock n Roll Arizona Marathon in 2008. Well, a race I tried for, I forgot, I did do the disneyworld half marathon January of 09 when I was 11 weeks pregnant. I felt so sick and miserable I just ran because I had registered and wasn't expecting to get pregnant so fast. oops... I was debating what I wanted to do for running this upcoming year, I love the disney races- I have done the Walt DisneyWorld Marathon two times, disneyworld half marathon once, and the Disneyland half marathon 2 times. I was there for the inagural race in 06, it was so much fun that I set my personal record at that race, and I went for it again in 07. Since California feels like my second home I was thinking about doing the disneyland half marathon again in 2010, AND we have a baby to take to disneyland too! I couldn't decide whether or not to do this run, or if we should even take Avery who will be a little over 1 year old if we went. Registration fills up fast. Christmas morning came and I was opening a present from Brandon. It was a new pair of running shoes. Yay! And there was an envelope in the box with the shoes, I opened it and it was the registration confirmation to run the disneyland half marathon in 2010! He registered me because he knows how much I would enjoy it. I am so excited! Don't get me wrong I can't wait to run and to try to set another PR, but I am even more excited to share the fun and magic of disney with our little girl. I have so many precious memories of being there with my family as a kid, and into adulthood, I can't wait to see her reactions to all the fun!
