Happy 2 Year Anniversary!

Brian and I celebrated our two year anniversary on August 3rd. Instead of exchanging gifts we are going to see Notre Dame play in October. We did however go eat some yummy Samuri! Here are some pictures of Brian and I on our wedding day!!


Runners Club

I have joined a small runners club! Well actually I have started going to Sarah's house M-F at 7:30 for a morning run. Sarah and Geri started running everyday at the beginning of the summer. Last Tuesday they asked me if I wanted to join. Of course my first reaction was heck no! Then I decided what would it hurt? So I got up early Tuesday morning and joined Sarah and Geri for a 3 mile run. Let me tell you...I thought I was dying! My side hurt so bad and I really felt like I was going to throw up. I have never considered myself to be a runner and probably never will! Wednesday morning rolls around and I am ready for round 2. It was much easier Wednesday! By Friday I was running and breathing a lot better. Julie even joined us Friday! I decided to start calling us a runners club! This week we ran 15 miles! I am very proud of myself and my fellow runners club members! Next week I am really going to try to run harder to shave some more time off our run. Wish us luck!!

See you monday Sarah, Geri, Amber and Julie!


Brady's Turning 3!

Things have been pretty busy around The Rhoden house lately. We have been getting ready for Brady's birthday party! Who can believe my precious little baby will be 3 in two weeks? Brady is having a Diego birthday party at Gymnastics Sports Center. We are so sad that Brady is growing up so quickly, but we are also excited to see him be more active and involved in everything he trys!

On a different note we finished summer school!!! Brian ended up with 3 A's (of course)! I got a B in my Art class in the first summer session and an A in my Drug and Human Behavior class. I am very excited to have the next three weeks off. I am also looking forward to starting school. I will have a very very busy semester. They will all be social work classes and should be pretty interesting. Brian will be taking one class in the fall. I am sure he will ace it!


Dora The Explorer

Camie, Amber and I took the boys to go see Dora in Grand Pr! The boys were so excited! Brady was asking for two days what time we were going to see Dora on Saturday. Dora and boots went on an adventure to the City of Lost Toys. They were joined by Diego for a little while. Brady and Carson were not very happy when Diego left.

They were all so tired after the morning shopping trip and Dora!

It's been to long!

Since my last post The Rhoden family has been pretty busy! I finished Camp Fire camp, Brian and I finished the first summer session. Brian finished with and A and I finished with a B. And we took a little vacation. We took Brady to Dinosaur World in Glen Rose, TX. We really enjoyed Glen Rose. After we checked into our hotel Brian and Brady went swimming and I took pictures. Then we got ready for the evening and went to a pretty good little Mexican Restaurant. Then we just drove around Glen Rose. The town reminded us of Stars Hollow. Stars Hollow is the town on my favorite show Gilmore Girls. It was very historical and in really good condition for a little town. The next day we got up and went to Dinosaur World! The park had over 100 life size dinosaurs. It was really cool. Brian and I were trying to read about each dinosaur but Brady wasn't very interested. He just wanted to go play at the Dino park. We let Brady pick out two things from the gift shop and he picked out these little tiny dinosaurs and a back pack. The next day we spent the day at the Dallas zoo. The zoo was a lot of fun! Brady had a really good time. He loved the monkeys and elephants. Brian and I decided next year if we take Brady to the zoo again we will do it in March or April. It was so HOT!



I am so tired! Camp has really worn me out. This year at Camp Fire camp I am the "camp craft lady". I lead the cookouts (3 grades a day, 4 to 5 groups in each grade, 2 hour time period), lead sing song (my favorite part of the day), set up scavenger hunts, lead the flag ceremony (teach the children to put and take down the flag) and walk around all day to make sure everything is going great! I think in the past three days I have set down a total of 3 times during the day. I love Camp Fire and camp is my favorite time of the year, but man I am TIRED!! Tuesday I let Brady go to the papoose (nursery). He didn't do very well. He didn't like seeing him mommy around all those other children. So we called Brian and he left early. We are going to try it again tomorrow. I also have my cousins little girl Faith this week. She has been a real trooper at camp. I am trying to teach her to swim without holding her nose (I don't want her to be 30 and hold her nose like her momma).

School is going good so far. I have had one test and made an 84 on it. I am pretty happy with an 84!

A Little Break

Have I mentioned how HAPPY I am school is out! I had a very stressful last month this semester. I am so happy it is over. I ended up with 3 B's and 1 C. I will take it! This summer I am taking Art Appreciation, Economics and Intro to Substance Abuse. Brian is also taking some summer classes. I am so proud of him for going back to school. As most of you know we really want to move, and with a degree he will get paid more. He will also have better opportunities to get promoted. So until June 1st I get to do nothing!!!


First Blog

I have finally decided to start a Rhoden Family Blog! I am a major blog stalker to a few people I do not know, but I find their lives very interesting. I thought I would get in on the fun! I am a mother, a wife, a daughter, a sister and a friend!
