Pace Bend Camping

For spring break we decided to take the kids, dogs and grandparents to Pace Bend for a weekend of camping.  This was Ry's and Josie's very 1st camping trip!  Opa and Juju went out the day before us to reserve a spot at the improved campsites.  Their site was huge so we were able to set up right next to them.  The area was beautiful!  We were about a 5min walk away from Lake Travis, and we had enough tree coverage around us that it blocked the strong winds.  The weather was great the entire weekend.  We feasted on s'mores, dutch oven cooking and more s'mores!  :)

Tiara 5K

This past Saturday Emma and I ran the Tiara 5K (formerly Diva 5K). The night before the race Jenn came over to the house and we made some awesome tutu's (no sewing required, thanks MomSwimBikeRun!).  It was perfect weather for the run, 65 degrees with a slight wind, which is not uncommon for Pflugerville.  ;)  We finished together in 31:29. Emma did a great job and took 2nd place!  Amanda finished in 26:04 and Jenn took 3rd place with a time of 25:17.  We even ran into our friend/co-worker Kelly at the race.  Great job ladies and team 'Running from the Kids'!

Avg pace - 10:04
Mile 1 - 9:24, Mile 2 - 10:10, Mile 3 - 10:48, last 0.13 - 1:07 (8:49)

Divas up! 3/3/2012
