Hudson's Grace

Last night I was in bed with Hudson, playing, talking, etc.  When all of a sudden he folded his hands together, closed his eyes and said this:

'We clasp and hands and close our eyes and think deep thoughts inside.

In work and play we've done our best and now it's time to eat and rest.' 

And I thought my heart might burst.

Shameless Brag

I have to brag.... (isn't that what blogs are for anyway??).

I set a personal record in a half marathon yesterday by running the Tobacco Road race in 1:57. That's an 8:55 pace.  :-)   And this was after a late night out with Jeni and Dave, dining, drinking and taking in a Gordon Lightfoot concert.  Poor Gordie has gotten awfully old.

Here are some pictures of the boys from this weekend.  Admittedly, neither Mike nor I was supervising them for a few minutes and when we noticed what they were up to.......we found this scene.  They were both throwing the dirt, Hudson just happens to have much better aim and distance than poor little LW.

HEAT Workout

My friend Lisa and I went to HEAT this morning for a 6am TRX workout.   I love that place!   This video of Elizabeth Hasselbeck's workout is very similar to what we do there.   I don't especially love E.H. or her opinions but she's in great shape, no argument there. And look - she's wearing Lululemon crops.   :-)     Mike has grown tired of my 8+ year addiction to LLL. He can take that up with my enabler, Penny Turner.

Silly Boys

Lincoln is in that phase where he is so cute, but such a trouble maker. And because he's so cute and everything is done with innocence it's difficult to do anything but grab the camera.

This week he has been very interested in standing in the dog's food bowl.

And because little brother was getting the attention.....

Pictures from Bianca - and pool oooops

This was what I saw when I got home from work. The bobcat, over the hill and stuck deep in the mud. Not sure how they'll get that out today.  Ooooops

And.......the latest photo shoot with Bianca!  This set might be my favorite yet:   Benedict Family Pictures

Linus is Free!

Our good friends Jeni and Dave are the parents of Henry (Hudson's best buddy) and Linus. Linus was recently 'freed' from a spica cast to correct a dislocated hip (he was in the cast for 11 long weeks).

We have awesome, fun friends who all came over on the weekend to celebrate Linus' new found freedom.  You can read about Henry and Linus here.

Here is the man of the hour, being loved by a gaggle of women:

The kiddies made tee shirts to celebrate. The adults made cocktails.



We tried to get a picture of all the kids together......
