Race Around the Track

Saturday morning was pretty relaxing.  There were a few schedule mix-ups so about about 12:30 we headed out of the house to a birthday party that had started an hour and half before!  Oh well, we didn't miss the pinata, cupcakes or presents; so we didn't miss much!

Gone before I could even snap a picture
After that we headed up to the El Dorado County Relay for Life.  It was weird but very nice not to be caught up in the mix of things, and be able to just relax and enjoy the day and the company without the stress.  The kids had a blast running around and playing and helping me make our luminaria bags; they did an awesome job.
Helped with decorating and filling

I'm not sure there is a more touching sight then seeing these two little ones partaking in such an important event; even if they don't understand it all.  We made 13 bags in total and I'm sure we could have easily made another 5+.
We were up there for most of the afternoon, and ran home at about 7:30 for a quick warmer wardrobe change, some food and the stroller and headed back for the luminaria ceremony.  Aden was in heaven because he had his light-up shoes on and was able to run laps around the track all by himself because I could see his light-up shoes the whole time.  He was like the energizer bunny, he kept going and going and going.  And of course once again both kids passed out a few minutes into the car ride home!

There really isn't much to report from Sunday, we made our way to church and then spent the rest of the day at home relaxing and recovering for our fun filled party weekend!
