First, a little complaining

They look cute, don't they?

Um, yeah.

We thought it would be fun to go on a little vacation with the whole family. The day part was fun. The night, not so much. Let me give you a little timeline.

10 pm - Molly falls out of bed. Crazy. She hardly ever does that.
I put some pillows next to her so it wouldn't happen again.
12 am - Heidi falls out of bed. Crazy. She's never done that - ever!
I put some pillows next to her so it wouldn't happen again.
1 am - Heidi falls out of bed. Huh?
I put an ottoman with pillows next to her so she wouldn't fall out.
3 am - Heidi falls out of bed AGAIN!
Seriously? How did she roll OVER her pillows, onto the
ottoman and OVER the ottoman pillows too? Eeeks.
5 am - Time to take Scott to the start line. Ooooh.

Now onto the good news.

After we took scott to the start we had breakfast, went back to the room and jumped on the beds, packed up and then had a second breakfast. I love having two breakfasts. Lucky us!

More good news. My sister Amy is no longer my least favorite person to share a bed with. It's Heidi, who I put in my bed after she fell out of hers three times. I took this an action shot of her "sharing" with me after getting kicked in the head one too many times.

And now here's even more good news!

Scott ran his first marathon this weekend!

He was hoping to make it under 4 hours and he did - by 1 minute and 14 seconds. He's amazing. Did I mention I ate two breakfasts in one day?

Here's the after effects of the run. Ouuuuuch.
Surprisingly, he's not reconsidering the second one in April.

I am with Laurie...I don't ever plan to endure that much torture willingly! I am happy that know of the girls were hurt with all of their nighttime jungle gym activities and I bet you must feel like taking a nap!

Congrats to Scott...bummer that so many monkeys fell out of bed and bumped their heads. But you also had a marathon...at night...getting up..and taking pictures!! Good for you. You deserved to eat twice before lunch!

Brad and Julianne Heaps said...

Aw, come on... I am not that bad to share a bed with. Just ask Brien, *cough* and the two body pillows we have to use to keep me from kicking his shins all night long. At least someone finally puts me to shame!

Way to go Scott!!!!

OLIVIA said...

That's my kind of marathon Laurie! Two breakfasts! Hurray!

And well done Scott!

Stephanie said...

Wow! A marathon!? Great job! And, Laurie, I hope you got some rest after such an eventful night of "rest"! It's amazing that such a little body can take over a HUGE bed!
