Our Party-filled Weekend!

We had a fantastic weekend if I do say so myself.

Friday morning, I decided to bake cupcakes for K.C.'s party and go for a long run. I've been wanting to run a half, but haven't bitten the proverbial bullet to do so. I decided on 10 miles just to see how it felt. I ran my first 3.1 on the treadmill while I waited for the cupcakes to bake, took a 2-3 minute break to get the cupcakes out of the oven, then ran back upstairs to finish my 10 miles. Those 10 miles turned into 13.1. I felt great, too! 13.1 miles in 1:35:12! You can read about it here.

After cooling down and cleaning up, I picked up the boys and we stopped by Hobby Lobby to get some more chocolate for the chocolate mustaches I made for K.C.'s party. They love Hobby Lobby because they love to build and paint. K.C. picked out a birdhouse to paint while Kaden chose a pirate ship. Kevin came home for lunch, so we ate with him and then we painted. They had fun!

When we finished painting, Kevin's parents stopped by with two of our nieces. My sister also came up with the little girl she's babysitting this summer. The kids all had a great time playing. I cooked dinner Friday night and then we went out to get a few more things for K.C.'s party.

Saturday was K.C.'s 6th birthday! It was really busy. I spent the majority of the day inside getting things ready and cleaning while Kevin worked in the yard. He does a great job taking care of our yard. Unfortunately, all this rain we've been having hasn't allowed us to play outside much and has turned our backyard into a swamp!

Yesterday, we finished getting everything ready for the party, ate lunch at Kevin's parents and then celebrated our sweet K.C.! (Full party recap coming tomorrow!) We also can now park in the garage. KT and our BIL moved all of the furniture that has been in our garage since we got married to the attic. It looks great!

This weekend goes down as one of those really good ones. And today, well, I'm recovering from it.

What was the highlight of your weekend?
