Saturday

While people were getting prepared to run the Carlsbad marathon, Max and I were up early ready to run the Keebler Marathon Mile for kids. Max had been training. He has been running around our house and having me time him. Usually it was only once around the house but he still felt completely prepared. We ran the race together and I couldn't have been happier. Watch out Felicity! I might have a new running partner :). Max won a National Treasure t-shirt and a pass to Lego Land. So, he spent the day at Lego Land with his friend Nathaniel and Nathaniel's mom. Ryan and I hit the beach with the girls.



Finish line!

Post Christmas Parties

My brother Adam and his friend Courtney came to visit for a late Christmas dinner. We had a great time and the kids loved playing with their uncle.
 



The kids couldn't wait for Grammy and Papa, Kelli and Scarlett, and Great Grandma Kelley to stay with us
 




We love Scarlett!
 




 


Ryan's sister Kelli and her daughter Scarlett came to visit all the way from Budapest Hungary. They must really love us!!!
 



A bunch of rain washed up a lot of bamboo and sugar cane onto the beach. Max and cousin Gavin put it to good use
"Ohmmmmm"
 




Who wants to meditate when cousins are around?
 



Grammy was the official sand castle builder. Charlie and Abby kept her busy making them....sandcastles are meant to be smashed, right?

Nighttime stories with Papa
