Day One

We got a new camera for Christmas and the pictures are AWESOME! (And....way too huge).

I was trying to email some pictures of recent events to friends and family but it was taking forever for the pictures download. At the same time, I was reading a book about a creative family. The mom has a blog where she chronicles what she makes and I seem to be drawn into it. And that's how the idea of the Blog started. A way to communicate with family and friends and show off all the cool pictures that (my) our new camera can take.

So, for those of you who haven't heard from me in awhile, I apologize. As usual, life has been busy. This is the email I drafted and tried to attach pictures 2.5 weeks ago.

--Well, I just thought I would email some pictures before time flies again and I have hundreds of pictures on the camera. Since the weather has gotten nice, we've gotten to go for lots of walks and Daphne loves walking her dolls. Sometimes when she gets tired of pushing the stroller, she just picks the whole thing up and carries it for awhile.
Kevin and I are playing softball again - both in the outfield, next to each other. And, again, the team won the game when I didn't play!!! They just got lucky.
This past weekend, I ran the Flying Pig 1/2 Marathon. It went pretty well - not quite as fast as I would have liked, but I finished and I wasn't too sore. All the training, all the running at 6:15 or 7:00 in the morning, paid off.
So, that's what the pictures are about.
Happy Spring!!!

By the way, since the 1/2 marathon - I have run 3 times for 3 miles each time. .....Definitely not keeping up with the running.
