Friends, Cupcakes, and Funglish

I'm so behind! I can't believe how long it's been since I posted. My apologies. I plan on making up for that right now. Friday night there was a 5k in our neighborhood that ran right in front of our house. The last two years Doc and I have participated in the race - him running and me walking. This year, we decided it would be fun to invite a few friends over to watch the race and cookout instead. It's much more fun to sit back and watch people exercising than to actually do it yourself, right?

Jenny and Darrin came to watch.

And so did this little princess.

She loves her momma....

...but sometime neglects her puppy dog.

Her proud daddy came over too.

Allison brought her new toy over. Her approach to photography is a little different from mine. I may have to try the drink-in-one-hand-camera-in-the-other style soon. :)

Her husband, Chris, spent some time entertaining Miss Wesley.

The race was fun to watch. It started at 7:00 pm and the pace car and lead runner passed our house shortly after. I think we were between the first and second mile markers. Our neighbors had their water hose out to give the runners a rinse-off as they passed by.

By the time the last walkers were through, Doc had dinner ready for us. Pork tenderloins, cowboy beans, and rolls. Yumm-oh! (I really could not host parties without Doc. I always have the idea to invite everyone over, and I sometimes help with the prep-work, but when the actual party starts happening, I completely forget all of my hosting duties. Good thing he ALWAYS remembers to cook the food and get it ready to serve!)

Here we are after I thanked him for cooking while I sat outside taking pictures and visiting with our friends.

Thursday night I decided to make cupcakes for us to have as dessert. They're supposed to look like cherry and blueberry pies. Can you see it? Sorta?

After dinner, Wesley changed into her pj's and got ready for bed. Doc didn't really help calm her down.

Flying baby!

Later in the evening, we broke out the Funglish game. Who says it's just for kids?

My teammates!

I'm sure you're dying to know so I'll just go ahead and say it....the girls won.   Maybe if the boys are lucky, we'll let them have a rematch one day.
