Payton's first successful shoe tie!

Payton's been fighting me tooth and nail about learning to tie his shoes. He refused to try, didn't want anything to do with it, and insisted on Velcro Skechers. Well, he figured it out!!!

Payton's First Race

Payton ran a one mile fun run on June 19th. He seemed to have fun, but at the end he says, "Mom, that was a loooong way! Whew!"

He and I are going to do a two mile fun run/walk in Melba on July 3. Little short for me, but Payton wants to do a race together.

Had a terrific Easter. The Easter Bunny brought Payton an IPod shuffle (I know, he's spoiled). He's been walking around the house singing "Blue, blue, blue sweat shoes." LOL.

Bath Time Payton

This kid cracks me up!

State Bowling Tournament

Mom, Brenda, Carrie and I all went up to Lewiston, Idaho last weekend to bowl in the state women's bowling tournament. We bowled team together. Brenda and I bowled doubles, and Mom and Carrie bowled doubles, and we all bowled singles. Brenda and I also bowled with the High Five team, which is the five people with the highest averages from each bowling alley in the state.

We didn't do great in the regular tournament. Not bad, but not great. But in High Five, we BLEW EVERYONE AWAY!! We bowled 12 games of Baker System, where each person on the team bowls 2 frames of the game. We only had two games under 200, and our high game was 280! Eleven strikes and one spare!

Wow! I need to update!

Unfortunately, I prefer to use pictures, and I hadn't been able to find the power cord to my camera since we moved. I found it last night! Yay!

Super quick updates:

Payton is almost SIX! He is doing swimming lessons, bowling and Judo. He loves living next door to Grandma and Papa.

Tami just turned 35 two days ago. She's been jogging since last September, and has signed up for a 10K race in May. She started MBA classes in January. She has also started back to Judo. (Like how I referred to myself in the 3rd person? :)

Ray has started working out at an MMA gym. His work is pretty same 'ol, same 'ol.

Better posts to come!

So, it's almost exactly a month since Christmas, and I'm finally getting the photos up. That's not too bad, right?
