April ... in pieces (also known as: MAN WE'VE BEEN BUSY!)

She turned 14.

We went out for lunch after church for her birthday.
It always seems like a good idea.
It usually turns out to be quite the fiasco.
We do it anyway because tradition trumps toddler-tantrums.

Later, we won't remember the tantrums.

We'll just remember that she turned 14.
And that they weren't toddlers very long.

We ran in the Monument Avenue 10-K again.
Sam & Dad ran in the Kids 1-mile. 
VCU just happened to make it to the Final Four.
Pretty much everybody in this city was a fan :)

Babies cheering on Hannah & Mom ...
Bless their hearts, somehow they missed us :(

Hannah & Amy

One of the many costumed runners ...

All tuckered out.

Emma celebrated her birthday with friends the following weekend ...

First: Sweet Frog Yogurt

Then back to our house!
Emma & Elyse have the same birthday!

Any ideas for what to do about this?
The whole "growing up" thing?

Cause it's gettin' outta control, ya'll.

She is so beautiful, they all are. What a sweet family. Love that tantrums don't keep you home... funny how from a distance of time they even become a fond memory. It all is when they are turning 14, right?

(We hit that milestone Sunday, and I am so not ready... why can't they stay babies? I guess because they are so delightful at this age, too!)

Loved this. Your kids are beautiful!

Way to go on the 10k! How fun to do that together.
