Swing or Go For a Drive?

Last week Jared and I took Christian to the park for the very first time. It was so much fun taking pictures of all his first time activities! We think he is just so much fun and so dang cute! Christian seemed to really like the swing! But he kept staring over at the little girl swinging beside him, so it was hard to get a picture of him looking at the camera. He was so interested in what she was doing...

Lately he has been sticking his tongue out a lot. It's so cute!

Daddy giving him his first driving lesson!

No he didn't go down the slide. Jared just held him up so we could get this picture. :0)

He had a ride on mommy's lap.

Jared said he really was holding on mostly by himself! What a strong boy!

Daddy holding Christian up high so maybe we can get a smile?

Jean Jones 5K Run

Yesterday I ran a 5k with a few friends from my neighborhood around the Ole' Miss campus. It was really cold before the race started, but luckily it warmed up quickly. I hate to run in the cold! It was a relatively hillly run but the grounds around the campus are so green and pretty! It was rather enjoyable.

Anyhow, the race was in honor of a professor who worked for the University. She died of cancer in 1997. I thought it was for a neat cause. The proceeds went to help further the research of cancer. I got a sticker that said "I am running for..." and I filled in the blank with, "Grandma Harr." My Grandma was diagnosed with breast cancer a couple of years ago and now is a survivor of it. However, she was recently diagnosed with stomach cancer. She is an amazingly strong woman with such a huge heart. I am so impressed by her positive attitude and her great example of giving and caring for others. I love her very much and am so grateful for our relationship.

Here is the only picture I have of Christian and I after the race!
