My Third Kid Spartan Run

Today I did my third kid Spartan run. I had a great time except I didn't like the mud again! I was going to try and be brave but there is something about that cold water that I just don't like. There were a lot of obstacles I did enjoy though. My favorite was the "wall I could climb by myself".
Here are pictures from my race:
Ready to go!

Pappy and me.

I'm way in the back. I don't think you can even see me.
There I am in the green shirt.

Waiting my turn to go.

These walls were my favorite.

Crawling under the "barbed wire"

More obstacles.

Daddy helped me through the mud.

This was a new obstacle this year.

Spear toss.

I was really good at balancing.

The finish line!

Getting my medal.

Every year we take a picture in front of this wall.

Happy Birthday Pappy

Yesterday was Pappy's birthday. We made him a taco dinner buffet and a chocolate cake. Here are some pictures from yesterday.
Being silly with Pappy.

Ayla and I put the candles on the cake. Pappy is "7".

Make a wish!

We helped Pappy blow out the candles.

Ayla got to lick the frosting off the candles.

Pappy and Bebe brought us over baseball gloves.

Ayla had a great time practicing with Daddy.

Ayla made this card for Pappy all my herself.
"Happy birthday Pappy I hope you have a good birthday."

Yesterday was also the first baseball game of the season
for the Pittsburgh Pirates. There are more pictures of us
in our Pirates gear...

Daddy and I hard at work.

This is the current view from my room.
Isn't that a nice tree?

I followed Daddy everywhere.

Photo shoot with Daddy.

A comparison to last year's picture.

What a fun day! We hope you had a Happy Birthday Pappy!

Farewells, Phipps, and Friends

On Thursday Michelle, Kai, and Nora flew back to Germany. It was a tearful goodbye but we are so glad that we got to see them and spend some time with them! We miss you so much!
We somehow managed to get a decent cousin picture!
At the airport.
The statue was cool, however we weren't really in the
mood to get our picture taken. Haha!
We all enjoyed the elevator ride.
Kai and Hayden were best buds!
Bye, Nora!
After we went to the airport, we decided to stop by Phipps Conservatory and see the flowers. Oma has a season pass so we were able to go in for just a little bit. Good thing, because that brother of mine has definitely reached his "terrible twos" stage and he wasn't really in the mood to look at flowers and get his picture taken. Here are the pictures that Mama took.
Yup, that pictures pretty much sums up how Hayden was
the whole time.
Hayden did like the interactive garden outside.
The buttons made the fountains work.
Hayden did like looking at the fish.
The Desert Room
On Friday Oma treated us to Breakfast at Eat'N'Park and later Mama's friends, Toni and Tara, came over for their annual Spring Break visit and picture. I had fun playing with Dani and Reagan.
Yup! Mama takes tantrum pictures too.
This was after he wouldn't listen in Target and kept running
down the aisle. Mama took off his new shoes and took him
to the car while Oma paid. Hayden kept saying
Annual Spring Break picture. We missed you JaLaya!
A little recap. We are missing last year's picture because Tara was sick.
Decorating cookies.
I was very precise about my decorations.
Hayden decided to eat sprinkles by the spoonful! Ha!
Cheers to a great break!
Playing with Mama's old toys.
Goofy Hayden
Mean face!
Today we came home. We had a great time at Oma and Opa's but I was very happy to see Daddy!
Ready to go!
