Run Houston Run

This morning was the Houston Marathon, we are lucky to live in the city and the route goes right by our house. (Lucky I guess if you don't need to go anywhere in the morning)

Our wonderful neighbors invited us over for a play date and then we decided to brave the rain and check out  the marathon.
Oh yes it was early :) 

 Wes and Jack clapped and we named out runners encouraging them to keep going. The race route by our house is around mile 11, so it was nice to cheer them on! Brave souls they are!

The boys of course lasted just a little while before they spotted other fun things like cones and puddles...

Yep they were a mess, but sometimes you have to just let boys be boys! They were having so much fun splashing and playing in the water puddles....toots!

This picture makes me laugh because it looks as if Jack was running in the race...maybe he will be a runner, he sure loves to RUN not walk :)

After the race watching we headed back home and all went to lunch at Escalantes in Highland Village, one of our favorites! Then after lunch Mommy & Jack went to Half Price Books in the Village and scored a TON of new books! WOWZERS! We went a little crazy but I don't think you can ever "spoil" a kid with too many books :)
 Ok ok ok and we MIGHT have gone clothes shopping too :) I don't think I have ever been to a Gymboree store, it was across from the book store so we decided to pop in. They actually had some really cute stuff and this little nautical line was so adorable! I purchased two outfits and I scored reward bucks to return :) It was really reasonable and works as great play wear for Jack! Oh and the words on the shirts couldn't be more true! Lately Jack has been ruling this roost, time to check this little mate!

 Daddy didn't join us today because he has acute bronchitis, boo! He is starting to feel better and we are very much looking forward to Daddy feeling like himself again!

SO cute- looks like y'all had a lot of fun this morning. Jack's so adorable playing in the puddles! Liam loves to stomp around in them too-- wonder what it is in those boy genes that tell them a puddle is made for stomping.

P.S. JEALOUS of your yummy lunch! We love that Escalantes!

Jack looks like he's having a blast! Yup, gotta let em get dirty, no matter how much it makes you cringe!

I'm sooooooo jealous that you have a 1/2 price books near you!! I love that store!!! They need to open one here!

I love Gymboree! Super cute outfit!
