~~at the beginnng of the month we had a VERY RARE AND COMPLETELY AWESOME SNOW DAY!! we hardly EVER see white stuff fall from the sky in good ole mississippi, and when we do it's a BIG DEAL!!! check out these cold little cutie~pies.....
~~~ also during february i participated in MY FIRST HALF~MARATHON!!!!!!! it was the mardi gras rock-n-roll half marathon in new orleans.....and it was a WONDERFUL experience. (except for the kinda tiring 13.1 mile part). we spent the weekend there and had a fun family trip. we visited the aquarium, which is really fabulous. the boys loved it....as you can see.
the above picture was on our carriage ride around new orleans. i've only been to NO two times, and both times one of my fave things to do has been a carriage ride. the guides show you lots of neat details and point out things you wouldn't always notice otherwise.
sweet babies made me signs and held them up during the race and had a different sign at the very end. kevin helped them make them....he is so GREAT!! obviously, he's behind the camera here.
look at the lovely architectural details in the picture above. BEAUTIFUL! random unknown fact about me: i used to want to be an architect growing up.
ADOPTION NEWS: look to the left...i've updated our timeline. things are starting to move along...YAY!! we are presently waiting on our FBI fingerprints (the first set) to hit our mailbox so we can then proceed with our i800 application.
