I did it! I started an addiction! This past weekend I walked in a 5k! A friend (and neighbor) and I joined with 142 other people to walk/run in the New Thing 5k. It was awesome! We shaved 8 minutes off our previously walked times and actually enjoyed it!
I’ve received a few comments that maybe my father is Santa. Just thought I’d share this pic from a few Christmases ago. My dad is indeed Santa! 🙂 I’m sure there’s some sort of deal we can work out if you’d like me to pass your wish list along for “special attention”. **wink, wink**
We hosted the Fathers’ Day BBQ at our house on Saturday. We had a wonderful time! It was a little toasty, but it was really nice to have everyone together. And without further ado, I would like to honor the Fathers in my life.

My Dad, J5 and me:
My boys and J4’s new drums:
I am so very blessed to have such a wonderful family who all get along so very well together! I just wish we lived a little closer together.
If you live anywhere in the Chicagoland area, you are probably well aware that we have now made our way into Cicadafest 2007!!
This afternoon, I took J5 over to my in-laws to meet J4 there for dinner. (And yes, my father-in-law is J3). As I got out of the car I was almost deafened by the cicada noise. I took several pics and this video. You can hear how I feel about them right there at the end.
