Mini Vacation!

We traveled up into Alabama to Birmingham so Jeff could run an Xterra Race! It was a half marathon of trail running, and a little part thru a huge mud puddle - which was a couple feet long. We went with our good friends the Hurleys and met up with some more Hurleys' (Jeremiahs brother and sister in law).

We stayed in an awesome spa resort : Renaissance Birmingham Ross Bridge Golf Resort & Spa it was awesome and we will be staying there next year when I run the race! :) They had an awesome pool with water slide and now that Ian can swim very well with a life vest on he had a blast. Blake is getting better with the life vest and the floaty ducky that he is glued to.

So the morning of the race the Hurley's and Jeff got ready to run the race. (We had adjoining rooms) so when they left - it was me and 4 sleeping kids. 4 kids ages: 1,2,3 &4! We managed to play, eat breakfast, get dressed, potty and go to the car.... only to miss everyone cross the finish line! So I didn't get any pictures. :( I should have been a little faster... but loading up 4 kids and being 29 weeks pregnant was my workout for the weekend.

We enjoyed our pool side service of sandwiches and drinks and fruit and lounged around that afternoon.

All and all it was a great weekend with great friends!

Every night there was a bag pipe guy playing he walked around the hotel. It was pretty cool after dinner one night we caught up to him and Dawn took this picture of Blake and I. Jeff had to take Ian back to the room due to a headache (he played 4 hrs in the sun and was super tired and dehydrated). But here is the one picture we have! Enjoy!
