Another 5k!

This last weekend I ran another 5k in San Diego - The Hot Chocolate 5k/15k.  Such fun!  Above is a pic of my two friends & I as we approached the starting line.  Running with friends is a lot more fun than doing it alone :)  Not my best time (37:10) but I also didn't get to train much, thanks to a BAD cold I caught in early March, and I twisted my ankle just mere days beforehand.  Not to mention it was a super-hilly course and my legs were sore for days afterwards!  But what matters is I did it!

Bath time fun!

So I joined a couple mom-inspired groups on facebook that post some interesting fun ideas for kids.  One of them was to make their bath glow.  They actually put highlighter ink in the water and used a blacklight, but seeing as how Kevin has a tendency to drink the bathwater still, I decided not to do that.  Instead, I purchased on Amazon some submersibe LED lights.  They are like the flameless candles, but waterproof and they rotate between colors.  The kids had so much fun in their bath!  I have also heard of using the glow sticks, though they are harder to find this time of year.  Here are some pics:
