I used to call my mom's mom Gram, too...thought I was the one and only...more strange coincidences!
Glad to hear that Todd will run with you...that is so sweet! You are busy, busy with your race and your test...WOW!!!
We have a lot in common, don't we, Leighan?!! That's so funny that you called your Grandmother "Gram" too!!!

I "talked" to you yesterday, sounds like you had a great mother's day and Erin made some nice gifts for you!! How sweet!!!

It took about 2 weeks for my foot to feel better and then I was too scared to try it again before our trip. You have to be able to walk around WDW--you know? Anywho, hope your shin splints go away--those can be painful!! Good luck on the race--that's our first day in the parks at Disney (5/17). And good luck on your RE exam!!! I'm sure you'll do GREAT!!
Hi Becky!
I hope your foot is okay!!! It stinks when you have the will to get in shape and injuries happen, doesn't it? My shins are still KILLING me, I haven't run since Wednesday. Not sure what I am going to do this week but I AM running on Sunday, one way or another, I will finish this race!! The couch to 5K is a great program, hope you can get back into it after your trip!!

Happy Mother's Day to you! I'm not a mother.. well I am to my doggy.. but even though I count that.. many do not! hehe But thats great you found someone to run with.. My DH and I have been going jogging everyday like 1 mile 1/2.. which isn't a lot but we haven't ran in forever.. but surprisingly.. I wasn't as sore and it wasn't has hard I hoped. It's nice when the weather is nice. I don't mind running and doing active things.. but I have being tied up inside.

I love Universal Studios.. someday I'll goo back. hehe

A little side trip...

Hi Everyone,

Since I do not have a lot new on my trip, thought I would share Mother's day with you. I had such a nice day with my family!! Todd & the boys woke me up with bagles and donuts for breakfast, then we got ready to head to Boston. We started a new tradition last year (and I hope it continues every year, it's a nice way to spend a day!!) going up to the Swan boats in Boston gardens/commons area. It was a nice sunny day and they have a rubber ducky race (which we have never seen, but plan to next year!) in the a.m and lots of little festivities going on. We grabbed lunch on the way up to Boston (about 45 minutes from home) at Outback Steak house and we were on our way from there....

Here is a pic of the boys and I before we left the house, it was a miracle to get one with all three boys looking and smiling!!!


One of Boston sky line from the park


Ethan and Lucas watching the ducks while we were in line


Ducks (or as Cole calls them...Duts! Sounds familiar Brook? LOL!!)


Swan boat-- this is such a nice ride, about 10 minutes long, nice views and on the water, it's so pretty!! We really enjoyed it!


The big boys


Cole & I


The flowers were beautiful!!


We took a nice long walk and decided to rest for a bit, the boys were so happy to find the PERFECT tree to climb!!


Resting in the grass.....thinking Christmas card here!!!


And last but not least, we decided to head home but grabbed a snack beforehand, Todd & I got roasted warm peanuts (yum!), Cole had a warm pretzel and the big boys got water ices, a perfect way to end my special day!!


Hope all you Mommies had a nice day like me!!! I'm a lucky girl!!!

It sounds like you had a lovely Mother's Day! You got some really great pictures of the boys. And it looked like a beautiful day. It was overcast and rainy here, as it has been for about 2 weeks now

The pictures of your family are beautiful. Looks like you had a beautiful day. I think I need to make a trip up to Boston one of these days. It's been ages since I've been.
