Back in April Clyde joined a Fleet Feet Couch Potato running group. Okay so it wasn't technically called the "Couch Potato" running group but basically that was who it was aimed at.....people who did not really do much physical activity with the end result to run a 5K. Well Clyde did the training but never actually ran the race. I think we were camping or something. So he kept the running up and Meg and Carrie suggested back in July that he should run a half marathon with them, and that is precisiouly what they did.

I know this post is supposed to be all about Clyde but who can resist photos of such cute kids. Trouble #1 and Miss Trouble #2 hanging out at the beginning of the race.

Runner #1271.

The start line.

Meg crossing the finish line. Official times aren't in yet but Meg and Clyde were in the second wave so you can take at least six minutes off the time showing on the clock. Meg knocked at least five minutes off her previous best and on a much hillier course. Superwoman right there.

And Clyde crossing the finish line. Way to go hon.....I am so proud of you. And it can't have been too bad......they're already talking about the next one.

The training buddies.

So we have to end with the cute kids as well. Double gold for Jake.

I have VERY little doubt that my girl's current "sassy i-can-do-it-myself-in-my-own- sweet-time" atitude will hold her in good stead as she grows older. In the mean time it is driving her mother CRAZY!!

As promised last night, photos of our visit to Bishop Pumpkin Farm this weekend. We had a wonderful time and beautiful weather for our visit and came away with some pretty cool pumpkin loot.

I love the fall more than any other season. Seeing Sofia have so much fun picking out her pumpkin and then putting ir on the doorstep when we got home just puts a smile on my face. So here it is....pumpkin fun '09.

This Beautiful Face

It's, so late on a Sunday night and I am going to pay dearly for staying up this late tomorrow morning. Oh how I am going to regret this tomorrow.

I have to go and move one little person from my bed and put her in her own since she crashed out with Daddy a couple of hours ago. Maybe I'll let them be and sleep in Sof's bed tonight.

I took so, so many pictures today at the pumpkin patch that the thought of blogging it tonight completely overwhelmed me. So instead, I picked my favourite snap from today, complete with shadow and all to post because quite simply, I never get tired of looking into these beautiful brown eyes.

Stay tuned for more pumpkin patch fun tomorrow.

Lil' Chef

Sofia decided to help Daddy make a salad the other night. She was very good at stirring and tasting and even managed to keep the white cardi white.

Showing us the "syrup" aka dressing.

The final taste test. Yip, good to go.

Dishing up. Bon Apetit!!
