daddy daughter campout

Ever since Jade was born Dan has always wanted to sleep with Jade. He begs me all the time to let her sleep in our bed. He has even asked me if I thought the crib would hold if he climbed in to lay with her for just a minute. This weekend all of his dreams have come true.

This weekend was our ward's father son camp out. Dan would have taken Jade and dressed her like a boy, but decided to have a camp out of his own at home. When it was time for us to go to bed he decided to sneak in her room and make a bed on her floor for them to sleep on. He thought if he could transfer her quick onto the floor then she would not wake up. Well, he was wrong.

She woke up immediately and knew something was different. I was in the room too so we both had to drop instantly to the floor and pretend that we were asleep. She was SO cute. She crawled around exploring the floor and the pillows that we had put up to barricade her in. She would crawl over to us and look at us, and then just go back to her exploring. You could tell that she was still really tired because every minute or two she would lay her head down to rest for a bit. She even at one point rested her head right next to Dan's on his pillow. Dan's dreams had come true.

After around 30 minutes she fell asleep and I snuck out and got these cute shots.

I went to bed in our room and was awoken by Dan at 3:00am. She woke up and started playing again so Dan put her back in her crib. I guess the change of scenery was just too exciting for her to sleep.

Dan loved the camp out with Jade even despite the 3 am waking. He has already said that he is definitely doing it again next weekend!

Recently I found some pictures of me from when I was young. I don't have very many, but from what I can tell Jade looks just like I did! Sometimes I will look at her and can see myself in her. It is weird. Tell me what you think? Is it just me?

This picture below is actually of my little sister Stevie. I think Jade looks a lot like her also.

It's official!

I just signed up to run the Laguna Hills Half Marathon!! I have been sort of training, but now need to kick into high gear because it's soon. I ran 8.5 last Saturday and this weekend going to run 9. I have been lucky enough to have my friend Juliann to run with. We do ALL of our runs together and it makes the time fly by having her to chat with. Now, I just need to get her to commit to the race. I will not be able to do it without her. Dan sister Em will be coming down for the race too, but she will probably be too fast for me to stay with. Dan already said that he was going to plan differnt surprises at certain mile markers to keep us entertained. Hopefully, there will be no mooning on the list! I'm excited but also very scared. I have trained for a half 3 years ago with Dan but then we never ended up running the actual race. I'll keep you all posted on our progress...and if you see Juliann, tell her how excited you are that she will be doing the race! (maybe that will make her turn in her enrty forms)
