Evan's first birthday!

We had a blast last weekend!  Evan turned 1 on Saturday.  Hard to believe that now we have a 4 year old and 1 year old.  We had over some close friends and family and it was a lot of fun celebrating
Just like Summer, we made a big #1 covered with photos of him from his first year and then I clear coated the top of it.  It is fun to go back and look at Summer's #1 too.  Dawn also made a cute framed photo collage of the two of them from the past year with the text "MY 1st BEST FRIEND".  I love it.
Evan dug into the cake some, but he was pretty content with only eating a little bit of the cake.
One of the new gifts was a dual swing for Evan and Summer to ride together.  It has been so much fun watching him grow up the past year and especially her.  She has been such an amazing big sister and is always keeping an eye on Evan and is quick to let us know if he is getting into something that he shouldn't. She is quick to yell, "MOOOOOOOOM, DAAAAAAAAAAD!!!"
I worked over the weekend straight into this week.  I was getting worn down and tired with the 1AM alarms... I CRASHED when it was nap time for the kids on Tuesday and got a 2 hour nap.  So it was very easy to decide to run with the Columbus Westside Run Club on their Tuesday run at 6:30PM at Westgate Park.  Dawn and the kids came out as well and went with the walkers.  Since the walkers go in the opposite direction on the 1 mile loop then I get to give high fives to Summer several times while I got in my 8 miles.
I also took the kids up to the new Dublin branch of the Columbus Metropolitan Library.  VERY nice library and Summer loved going to the other side of the fish tank making Evan laugh.
I have been doing my daily runs on the roads a lot lately so decided to try to get some trail miles in yesterday.  Most of it was grass, but a mile or so was on actual trail.  I was able to test out my new Altra Timp 1.5 shoes.  Love them!  Light and snug on the top of the foot, but lots of room for my toes.  
Check out this storm last night!  It missed us.  I have been watering occasionally and will need to continue doing that if we don't get more rain soon.
Another morning with some patchy fog, but not quite as dense so far... The early fog will clear out and then we will be partly cloudy with some isolated showers and storms. Northeastern Ohio is in the Marginal Risk for severe storms, by the Storm Prediction Center. It will be a warm and humid day with highs in the mid 80s. Have rain gear handy and ready to go for the isolated pockets of rain. Friday will start out with more patchy fog then partly cloudy skies. High pressure will be passing by over Ohio so rain will likely stay at bay, but new models are trying to sneak in some rain late in the day, so let's go with a 20% chance of rain tomorrow. Most of Central Ohio will likely stay dry for Friday, but more rain returns for the weekend. Highs in the mid 80s for Friday and humidity still in the medium-high range. Saturday and Sunday will be hot with highs in the upper 80s with pop-up isolated showers and storms. It will also be a little more humid as well. So have rain gear handy for the weekend and a back-up plan if you have an outdoor event this weekend. The rain will be isolated both days so some areas will stay dry. The pattern of warm, humid, isolated rain conditions continue into next week as well. Not big change to our pattern anytime soon. Have a good one!
