Brock and I wanted to get away for our anniversary this year (march 4- 5 years), just for the weekend; however, because of the house sell/move it just wasn't logical for us to leave then. So, we pushed the trip back a bit and headed out this past week!
It was a quick trip- but much needed.
as food would keep coming to our little cozy beach spot- the look on brock's face was priceless. "you've ordered more?! what's wrong with you?! we just ate!" -- clearly he was not aware of what you're supposed to do on vacation!
when brock would step away from the table (to get more food) this little bird would swoop in and take himself some treats :)
The arch! We were going to stay a bit at "lover's beach" but... there weren't many umbrellas, it was small, and our waiter wasn't there to bring me food and drinks hah so we opted to head back to our hotel and hunker down in our go-to spot!
where the pacific and sea of cortez come together- really cool little area
I love where i can pick what i want and they make it right there in front of me
safe to say i was not feeling great after dinner this night- I can't eat heavy milk-product things i.e. cheesecakes, tarts, etc but they are my table full of every different possibly variety...i couldn't resist.
love being able to go running together- and exploring new places on a run is even better!
shells for my hadley & beckam
Love you babe- happy {late} anniversary to us!
see ya next time mexico!

fairview 1/2.

Some of the sis-in-laws/cousins/friends ran the Fairview 5k/1/2 marathon again this year!
We had a fun day shopping the day before (and eating), a hilarious night in a hotel -then woke up the next day for our race! Michelle and I ran together, and I had a blast! I think Michelle and her poor tummy would argue otherwise.. she's such a trooper! We finished at the same time her last PR was- and that was with all the stops! Just shows she would have KILLED her last PR had her tummy been on board with our plan. Next time!
thanks for the fun weekend everyone!

18 months.

1.5 yrs old.


height:   31.5"   21%
weight:  24lbs   51%
head: 18.5"   39%
where has the time gone!?
Beckam Bear is becoming a full-throttle little boy and not a baby anymore!
lucky for me- on the rare occasion, he will fall asleep on me. Or, stay asleep on me during a transfer :)
 the last few months of church have been BRUTAL! He could not be contained. So, we would typically resort to the gym where he was freeeeee
 if you are sitting near him- he will typically bring a book and crawl into your lap-always the same way too. There's not any other way you can read a book to him. 
 and if you are in a position where he can not get into his 'book reading position' he will find a way to sit on you in the most uncomfortable way until you re-adjust.
 he is OBSESSED with blocks- or building/stacking anything
 and food. I've never seen anything like it. if food is around him- it is his. no questions asked. 
case in point- i gave him 1 granola bar instead of his and mine....
still loves his monkey- and I don't ever want to forget how this guy sleeps- whenever he is tired he starts to put his shirt in his mouth- then he will fall asleep (hence the big wet spot on his shirt) he's done this for as long as we can remember. I was never able to put him to sleep wearing onesies because he would just scream and tug on it because he couldn't get it in his mouth. shirt+binki is the only way he rolls. and yes, both at the same time. 
which sometimes can result in interesting shirt twists by the morning.
 he now sits at the table (with a booster) like a big boy! he's a fan.
 and adores his sister- despite her using him as her personal dress-up doll
 loves the dirt, bugs, climbing, hiding, and overall being mischievous..yet adorable.
 Love this cute boy of ours. 
Happy 1.5yrs b bear!
