Saturday I was able to do a fun run with some of my oldest and dearest, my hubby and my favorite gals. I have known each of these girls for over twenty years and cannot imagine anyone else I would rather do this with. Together Christine, Annie and I have ran a Marathon relay, a half Marathon and now a fun 5K. This is not a run to keep your time on or be competitive, its just a run to enjoy the hype, get dirty and experience it with great friends. Mission accomplished!

Haden Turns Eleventeen :)

This past week we celebrated another Birthday with our special man, Haden. Haden and Madison both say that they are not turning eleven, they are turning eleventeen. Mommy does not like that, they will be teenagers soon enough. How quickly time is passing. Haden and I were talking about his birthdays that we have celebrated together and we have celebrated more together than apart. I met this little man when he was five years old. It dosen't seem that we have been a family that long but we have. I love this little man and have already shared so many unforgetable memories with him. He is my baseball buddy, my jokester and I love him dearly.

Reno Trip

The past few month Jay has been having to spend a little time in Reno for work. A few weeks ago we made a trip up to see him and did some sking. It was the kids first time, Jay and I were exhausted after getting everyone fitted and out on the slopes but we had an amazing time. Reno has quickly became one of my favorite places, it is beautiful.

It's That Time Of Year Again

The weather is starting to warm up, the smell of fresh cut grass is in the air, and our nights are filled with bats and balls. Its baseball season, one of our family's favorite time of the year. Yes, it keeps us running with both of the boys but we love it! Bowen will be playing for the Yankees and Haden for the Mets. Talk about an NY rivalry! Play ball!

Cutie Patooties

Here are the kidos all dressed up for our yearly party and trick or treating, Bowen was sick so I stayed home with him while Daddy took the other kids. Our very own Madison won for best costume. She really is the Mad Hatter.


This past week we took a cruise with our kidos. We made a stop in Catalina and then again in Ensenada. We had such a great time. The kids were so excited with every new adventure. We cannot wait to go again.

Welcome to the newest member of the Mercer family. Miss Cotton joined our crazy brood almost two weeks ago and what excitment she has brought. She is the sweetest dog with lots of personality. She has recently found her bark and is meshing well with our other girl Fiona. She loves the kids and her and I have become very close on our morning walks. Here she is!
