Great Weekend

We had such an awesome weekend! Friday was Alaina's 2nd birthday! WOW time is flying by! Seems like only yesterday she was just a newborn. Here is our big girl now

She had a fun party in the SNOW at McDonald's! It starting snowing Friday afternoon and we almost cancelled but most of our family said they would still come, so we went ahead! It was a beautiful snow fall and the most we have gotten in several years. Here is what we woke up to Saturday morning

It was just beautiful! We had been planning all week to go snow tubing in Hendersonville, NC about an hour and 1/2 away so we went ahead and went saturday afternoon! Oh what fun we had!! The drive up the mountain with the snow covered mountains was breath taking! We loved the snow tubing!

So much fun! We ate at Bennion's Steak House which Todd had been wanting to go to forever! It was anice Valentine Dinner with all 5 of my loves! and then we spent the night in a hotel and woke up Valentine's Morning in the mountains. A nice little getaway! A much needed get a way! Yesterday the kids were off school and enjoyed a day of being lazy, but Aaron and Jacob are sick! I hoped that the rest yesterday would make them better, but they are both home from school today and are headed to the dr. I hope they don't give it to the rest of us! On a brighter note..my foot is slowly getting better and I am up to 3 miles on it. I hope to increase that next week. We have our first group run as a team through Team in Training Saturday..looking forward to that! Everyone have an awesome Tuesday!!

Hitting the Pavement...

I am happy to say that I got my jogging/walking shoes back on today!! YIPEE! The injured foot is still numb and sore but the shoe went on. I did a whole 1/2 mile! LOL hey..you gotta start somewhere. I will slowly build up this week and get back on the training routine in no time! I'm told it is super bowl sunday but i don't even know who is playing! lol Catching up on some computer stuff, then it is back to church for The Brooks! Hope everyone has a great evening of football or whatever you choose to do!
