playing in the rain

the kids got rain coats, boots, and umbrellas for Christmas and have been begging to play outside in the rain well tonight they were granted their wish. It has rained a couple of times but either it was lightening or too cold to just wear their rain coats, so after supper tonight they donned their gear and were playing in the rain. I think Audrey had the most fun as you can see the splashing from her boots in the 3rd picture, there was a small puddle behind the basketball hoop that she was jumping in, needless to say she was soaked when she was done, and i don't think much of it was from the rain i think it was the puddle. Its amazing to watch the excitement of kids in the rain, Hayden sat in the garage in the stroller and even laughed watching them play. Today they had school, i was on the ball this am and went to the gym and ran before school started and then after dropping the trips off we came home hayden napped, I showered and made my grocery list and off i headed to the store. We even went to dairyhaven tonight after dinner.
Work went well this past sunday I was nervous at first but then once i started taking calls i was a little more comfortable and everybody was so helpful with the TON of questions that i asked. Next week i think Chris is going to take a day off and we are going to take the kids to the zoo, for the first time this season, I was going to take them tomorrow but the weather is going to be less than stellar here so hopefully next week. Oh well i am going to read my magazine and then go to bed early, Chris's alarm went off at 630 for the car seat certification class and will be getting up early all week to be at work by 7, yuck i don't mind waking up early I just don't do well waking up to an alarm if that makes any sense.

springing into the week

After an up and down winter with the weather I think spring is on its way, we have had some beautiful weather the last few days, today is a bit colder but 54 is still good. Chris got out the kids swings and even put one up for Hayden which he does love, especially if the triplets are pushing him, he giggles and thinks it is wonderful. I even think this beautiful weather has something to say for good moods, the triplets have been playing so nice together and are loving the option of going outside. Yesterday i bought some more sand for the kids sandbox and didnt' buy enough b/c it only filled one side. On Monday of this past week we had the Reuss's over for a bit and then we headed to the firehouse and the park, which was alot of fun. Tomorrow at St. Paul's MDO the kids are having a picnic lunch which they are looking forward to, I am looking forward to getting my run in and then coming home to a clean house. I have been trying to run 2 miles every day which is working pretty well, my next goal is a 10K which is 6.2 miles, i ran the ST. patty's day race which is 5 miles in 55 minutes so i need to start training more. For those of you who are runners I am not running for time I am just running for the runner's high and of course the health benefits. After the race on Saturday i was jumping up and down in Union Station b/c i was so proud that i did 5 miles, I don't ever think i will be a marathon runner, but maybe one day i might just attempt that half marathon, we will see.
Tonight is my last shift of orientation at work and Sunday is my first day off I am kind of nervous but it will be fine, it is a crazy weekend ahead, tonight i work, tomorrow night is set up for the sale, Saturday is the resell it sale, Sunday is work, chris will be with the kids ALOT which is good, welcome to my world.

A day with my boys

Its been awhile since i posted, i didn't even do a 10 month update on Hayden so i will include that here also. Life has been a little hectic lately with my new job which i can't even begin to tell you how much i LOVE it, seriously every time i work I thank God for leading me there. I realize how unhappy i was at my old job and the difference is amazing. since i am orientating i am working more for right now which i do like, espescially the money. I ran a 5K this past Sunday and it was awesome, the weather was great and i felt good through the whole thing. I need to run today but Christian has been ill and had a fever last night so we can't go today. He is doing fine i think he just has some respiratory thing going on, which i now have. Yesterday i kept Christian home from school and it was so nice outside so we blew bubbles.
Hayden's 10 month update is the boy is getting big, he is the happiest baby, and LOVES his siblings. This punching balloon is awesome for entertaining him, i know it is completely age appropriate, but hey it works great when trying to fix dinner. the side pic of Hayden he was belly laughing when Christian was blowing bubbles, it was too cute not too post. He is starting to cruise around furniture, does "so big", peek a book, and tries to get into my cabinets. I can't believe he is 10 months already. His sleeping also is much better, he goes down around 730-8, will sleep till 4 then eat, then sleep till 7 and wake up babbling. He also loves to be held which i am more than happy to oblige since i didn't get to constantly hold the triplets, although maybe i did with christian since he was the mama's boy. I don't think you can spoil them enough with love. People alwasy tell me treasure them b/c they grow up fast which i can start to fathom with the triplets. so i am trying to be more patient and not worry so much about the messes, I want them to look back and remember the fun not the clean house, dishes, or whatever.
Off to get ready and then play some more with the trips while Hayden naps.
