Deutschen Pfest 5k Pfun Run & Festival

The Deutschen Pfest 5K is our family race.  It's close to home, a good course and they serve pizza and beer afterwards.  Plus with your race shirt you get into the festival for free!  It was 75 degrees at race time and windy.  Our nice cool weather had disappeared and the past few mornings had been fairly muggy, so I was a bit worried about the temp.  I knew I wouldn't PR as I've been decreasing my runs since I'm 16 weeks pregnant, this would be my last race of the year.  I think they changed up the course a bit this year, there seemed to be a lot more hills.  Nothing too bad, but it was noticeable, mile 2 was the toughest.  Overall I'm really happy with my time, I ran the entire time and ran it in under a 9:30 pace (which was my goal).  Hopefully by this time next year I'll be back in fighting form to regain my time from last year (PR 25:26).  Evan came in at a speedy 25:57, the hubby and Emma ran together while pushing Ry and came in at 33:29.  My Garmin said I finished 3.06 miles in 29:20 and my official race time was 29:19.  A total of 455 people ran the race this year.

After the race we headed to the festival to listen to the Detentions and partake in carny food.  :)  Ry had a blast on the playscapes and even danced to the music.

Ry's first cotton candy!  I think he liked the shaved ice better.

Mother's Day Fun

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there!  

This year a friend of mine planned a maxi dress brunch downtown at Max's Wine Dive, a perfect opportunity to take our mothers out for mother's day.  The company and food was great, I really liked the bourbon french toast.  :)  We also tried their chicken and waffles, not bad at all!  We didn't get back home until almost 2pm, so the rest of the day was spent relaxing at home and loving on my little boy.  The next evening the hubby and kids took me out to Morelia for a mother's day dinner.

Happy Mother's Day!  With Jenn and her mom before brunch. 5/12/2013

Family Photo Session

New family photos are in!  We should have had them back at the beginning of April but unfortunately the disc with our pictures was lost, so we had to reschedule the shoot at the end of April.  Thankfully Kaoni put a rush on them and we had them back in a week.  I'm very happy with how they turned out, especially considering when we arrived at Mueller Lake Park it was super busy.  I love our color scheme too!  :)

Austin Steam Train

This past weekend the Austin Spartans rented the entire Santa Fe car on the Austin Steam Train for a discounted price!  We couldn't pass that up, plus we've never ridden the train.  It was a quaint train ride from Cedar Park to Burnet, they even provided snacks!  Once in Burnet we ate at the Highlander restaurant and wandered around the town.  Emma and I volunteered to star in the Wild West Shoot out as town folk, we even had speaking roles!  Everyone had a great time and Ry was in a great mood despite only taking a 15 min cat nap in the car ride back home at the end of the day.

Come join the Austin Spartans for a historic train ride into the Texas Hill Country. We have booked the Santa Fe 1343 car aboard the Hill Country Flyer for a great trip on Saturday, April 27th, 2013. This popular train ride departs Cedar Park at 10:00am (arrive by 9:30) for a two hour journey through the Texas Hill Country to Burnet. Passengers can enjoy lunch and shopping at their own leisure during stopover. The Burnet Gunfighters present their wild west gunfight, weather permitting, at the train station in Burnet before the trains leaves at approximately 2:15 pm to return to Cedar Park.

At the train station 4/27/2013
all aboard!
