Shamelessly cute

I don't have time to write more but here's some pictures of Sofia La Pia to tide you over until my next post! These were taken yesterday by her Grandma Coussirat. As you can see she's really into getting things in her mouth these days, even her hand will do!

Heights Fun Run/Walk

Dan and I decided to participate in the Houston Heights 5K Fun Run and Walk last weekend. A friend of ours was the Chairman of the run so we thought we'd help support him and our neighborhood. Since my brother Louis has been "working on his fitness" we invited him to come along. We really had a great time. The run goes along Heights Blvd, which is lined with old oak trees and you run alongside all the beautiful historic homes in the neighborhood.

Dan ran the whole thing and came in at 27 minutes. Louis ran/walked and came in at 45 minutes. It took me and Sofia 53 minutes to walk the whole thing. It was hot and humid, even at 7:30 in the morning but we can't expect much more from Houston weather.

There was a professional photographer to capture us crossing the finish line. Not the most flattering photos but I'll share nonetheless! You can click this link Heights Run and search for our photos by last name. Louis' last name was misspelled so you have to search under Mayer.

It's been awhile...

I know it's been awhile since I've posted and it's a shame too because a lot has gone on. Unfortunately, I've been sans-camera for a couple of weeks.

A couple of weekends ago Dan, Sofia and I went up to Austin to visit Louis. David, Julie and Matthew came too and we had such a great time! We took Matthew to Barton Springs at Zilker Park. We laid out on some towels and worked up a sweat while watching Julie and Matthew dip their feet in. The spring was a little cold for them to get in all the way but it was really nice. That night we went to a concert at Nutty Brown and watched Bob Schneider. It was great! We could hear the show and Matthew could play in the sandbox with all the other kids. Austin's really a great city for families - it was so kid-friendly. We took Sofia to the Texas state Capitol the next day. Overall it was a great trip. We can't wait to get back!

Well, I've got the camera back and will update soon with pictures of Sofia. Love to all!
