Our Weekend

We had a very busy, fun-filled weekend. We went to visit Santa at Lenox Mall Friday night and we also rode the Pink Pig. Everett did suprisingly well with Santa. He cried when we first handed him over but calmed down very quickly. It was fun. I know it was early to visit Santa, but it was so nice because there was no line whatsoever. We went with a big group of friends, which made it a lot of fun.

Saturday we were up early to run the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta 5K. It started and ended at Turner Field, which was really cool. We ran with a lot of folks from our Young Couples class at church. We had a team of 24 runners. This was Everett's first race. Allen pushed him in the stroller. Neither Allen nor I trained whatsoever for the race so we were a little nervous. It wasn't too bad though. Allen finished in 35 min. with the stroller and with staying with me for the 1st mile and I finished in 39 min. Sad that I used to run 5Ks in around 27-28 min., but I was still happy with my post-baby time. :)

We then drove down to Columbus, GA, for my nephew's 2nd birthday party. It was a fun party and we stayed in Columbus for the day. We got back late that night. It was a long day and Allen and I were pretty sore getting out of the car after we got home. I guess that's the price we pay for not training for the race.

There are tons of new photos on our flickr page of all of these events...but here are some of my favorites:
