March Highlights

We had some nice weather so we enjoyed shorts and time out on the patio:

I got some new running shoes-very colorful

This great race 
here-and then the day after
this fun one

St Paddy's Saturday with friends at Rock Bottom

After Shamrock run with running buddy Art

With Tracie and Betsy after race:

Post race treat of Bloody Mary-back at Rock Bottom Sunday for their breakfast.

The above was only a 15 k but the challenge was that I ran a 1/2 marathon the day before-oui.

I had some great runs with my trail running group this month:

Aaron's first day of spring break-a playdate and milkshakes:

Later-getting ready to leave for dinner at Aaron's new favorite spot-Bamboo-here
Aaron's sweater from his brother still barely fits him so he's getting the last couple of wears out of it.

For part of spring break we went to the mountain with the family. Aaron got to practice his snowboarding and he did so great n his ski school. We got to snowboard 5 times this month!

Mom and I :

Mom and Dave

Our tired boy at dinner after snowboarding all day:

Aaron went to a sparring competition and got silver. Here he is with his friend Bryce.

These movies

I got my half fanatics shirt and moved up from moon level from Neptune to Saturn:

I got a new snowboard jacket: here-picture similar but without the plaid.

These new items:

shirt-sold out now but glad I grabbed it before it was gone

Spring outfit-Jcrew skirt sold out-similar, top Anthropology-love this one too by Meadow Rue-here

This book

I've had fun with this:

And finally a great 40th celebration birthday for friend Tracie! The birthday was held in Eugene and lots of us stayed at the Hilton in town. Dave and I got to spend the afternoon out in the wonderful sunshine.  We went here and Dave biked while I got an 8 mile run in.  Afterwards, a great lunch here

we headed to the hotel to get ready and meet everyone to play.
We started here
Here's a picture of Ninkasi Brewing in the snow.  The tents and fire pit area were great!

Tracie's cake-complete with candles that sparkle.  Kelley got the cake at New Seasons which is one of my favorites and Tracie's friend made great cupcakes.

Later we found some great spots in Eugene for dancing until early into the morning.

The next morning we all went here for breakfast. It was nice that Studio One Cafe took reservations for our large group and kept the coffee coming. We returned back to Portland tired but with happy smiles from a great weekend.
