Spring is in the air

Fun at the Circus

Finally Mom feeds me - I was so hungry and Pizza hits the spot

Wildlife Sanctuary - fun learning about the animals that live in the trees

My son takes after me with how much he LOVES animals. Here he is enjoying a cute little bird

Leaning how to animal proof his house

Well we are actually starting to wake from months of hibernation. Today it actually hit 50 degrees and everyone was out either exercising or cleaning their yard and/or garage.

I realize it has been a few months since I updated my blog which has bothered me nearly every day. I spend a great deal of time on the computer at work so it's really the last thing I want to do when I get home.

To wrap up our 2009, the holidays we wonderful. We went to Calgary and celebrated Christmas with Lynne, Steve, Brian & Jeni their darling children and Brian & Robin and their cute kids. It was a full house but isn't that what the holidays are meant to be? It really means the world that Steve and Lynne include us in their plans. I couldn't imagine the holidays without being surrounded by family.

As far as the past few months nothing very exciting to report. Oh I almost forgot... Bailey turned 14 in January. I am so blessed he has done so well all these months. He is still my BFF and is so cute with Ryan. They are great little buddies and of course Ryan has already figured out that when he throws food his little co-pilot jumps in the air to catch the yummy morsel.

So it's official after watching my brother complete the New Zealand Ironman two days ago I've decided to set a fitness goal for myself. Of course Dan you will forever be my idol too. I've decided to run a 5k in May and a 10k in June. Yes I know this isn't the Ironman but for me it's huge. I haven't regularly exercised since before Ryan was born and I can't even remember the last time I jogged - I think my early 20s... I was talking to my girlfriend Rhonda this week and we both agreed that underneath our current figure still exists an athlete - it will take some time to chip away at the blubber but I'm determined to try :)
