Had a great time at the Family Fall Fest at Camp Allendale with Connection Pointe Church. We did a hayride, picnic, hiking, canoeing, pedal carts, inflatable slide, pumpkin decorating, bubbles, foam party, pumpkin drop, and more.

Another season of the Blaze junior running club started last week. Emerson and Elias are running like pros. DeAnne, Elise, and I are helping anywhere needed. Emily’s away at college and I miss her since she’s the one who could keep up with these kids!

Running season is in full swing for the Baker family. We ran the Bulldog 5k this weekend and Emily placed first for female runners. Elias and Emerson did great. Blaze junior running club also started a couple of weeks ago and the boys are running with the school running club that I get to help out at. Emily is in full swing with track meets and practices.

Today we enjoyed a fun trip to The Ark. We enjoyed learning and seeing how things would have been set up inside the ark and the kids really enjoyed the playground and seeing animals in the little zoo.

Such a fun and informative day at the Creation Museum. The lights around the outside grounds were beautiful. Made wonderful memories and had some great conversations

Fun day at Lark Ranch today and Dulls Tree Farm last week. With Emily having practice every day we weren’t able to go anywhere over break so we made the most of staying home.

We did the Anderson Orchard 5k this morning. Those hills about killed me!! Not a great time for any of us, but we had fun together as a family. Emily came in 2nd for her age and got a pumpkin and a hay ride around the orchard for her and Emerson. Elias did the 1/2 mile fun run and danced a lot!! He even danced his way across the finish line. We all got carmel apples and cider slushes for finishing. We also enjoyed the delicious elephant ears and fried biscuits and apple butter.

And if I know one thing
Our God is a deliverer
If I know one thing
Our God is gonna see us through
Elias did ask to be held under for 3 seconds because Jesus was in the tomb for 3 days, but we told him no.

Happy 20th Anniversary to my best friend DeAnne. Last week I was at camp with my boys and that was the longest DeAnne and I have been apart in 20+ years. Life is better when we’re together.

Fun day trip to the dunes yesterday. Even after we applied sunblock constantly we still ended up with a few minor sun burns.

It has been a busy week. The boys had a run the same night Emily had a track meet and Elise had rehearsal for orchestra. Top that night off with a flat tire in the parking lot (thanks to my brother Dale for helping us). I ran book fair all week that finished at the school carnival on Friday. Emily had her first retail experience helping me on Friday evening. The boys got up and went to a car show on Saturday morning and then Emily went to a formal dance with friends that evening. Sunday, we had Elise’s final 8th grade orchestra concert. That last month of school is super busy!!

Happy Mother’s Day to the best mom for my children. And as Elias wrote in his card, one of the best things about DeAnne is that she is not in jail.

Cold morning for the Running of the Bulldogs 5K. Emily ran with Emerson to encourage him and they finished with a time of 26:56 (48th and 49th out of 264). David ran with them, but couldn’t keep up with their fast sprint at the end and ended with a time of 27:14 (54th out of 264). DeAnne finished with a time of 30:11 (73rd out of 264) shaving 8 minutes off of her time from last year. She only started running a little over a year ago doing couch to 5k and find it to be a nice stress reliever. DeAnne was very happy she wasn’t last!

We had a nice little get away to a secluded cabin in Kentucky. The drive was a little scary as part way down, the van had engine lights come on (we got it repaired and all is good). There was also about 2 miles of scary one-lane gravel road very downhill to reach the cabin. Lots of great family time together relaxing.
