Road Warriors!

Well everyone who knows Kirk and I, know that one of our hobbies is running. I run daily and we LOVE to run in road races. Beginning in July, we entered the Memphis Runners Club summer Road Race series. This series of races is a huge challenge. It consist of 2 races a month: 2- 5K's, 2- 5 milers, 2- 10K's, 2- 10 milers, and 2- half marathons. For two years Kirk and I have been chasing after this trophy but in order to get it you have to run every race. Every year something always happens, schedule conflict, illness, etc. This year we did not let anything stand in our way. Today we officially became road warriors! We will have to go to a banquet in January and will be presents with our awards. I know that it sounds like I am tooting my on horn, but I am very proud of both of us!

I am feeling a little under the weather today so I have spent may hours on my laptop blogging. (Laura said that it wouldn't take long and you were right) I have been very productive. I figured that if everyone else was going to have a blog showing what their family was up to then we should have one too. You will see that we are pretty boring people. Hopefully, once we get Ema she will liven our lives up a little.

Our first photo shoot

Kirk and I had our pictures made Wednesday by Phil Ramsey. I have to admit, I was dreading this. Knowing how Ema naps and how her happiness depends on how long she naps made me nervous. We had a low key day and at 1:00 I put her down. At 1:45 she was awake and ready to go. I washoping for a 2 hour nap at least but that was what I got. We started to get ready and Ema was so happy becasue she thought she was going somewhere. We get to Phil's and she was a little shy at first but soon opened up. I will let Phil's blog tell the rest of the story.

I am so proud of Ema. She was her normal self.....EVERYWHERE, INTO EVERYTHING!!! Is it just me or is she not the most beautiful little girl you have ever seen. I cannot stop looking at these pictures. I still find myself looking at her in amazement that God blessed us with this awesome child. We are the luckiest parents in the world!
