American Idol Finale! Go Kris!!

Just wanted to share some pictures of us in our t-shirts and all our excitement getting ready for work and then the final performances of this year's American Idol! We are voting for Kris!!

An Awesome Saturday!

Last Saturday we decided to go watch a matinee showing of X-Men Origins - Wolverine. Stuart and Whitney came with us. We all really like the movie, but decided we weren't finished hanging out . . . we went back to Stuart & Whitney's to decide what to do. We settled on using the 4 free games of bowling David has been carrying around in his wallet for the last year. We ended up bowling 2 games and it was a ton of fun! It has been forever since we've been bowling! As if we hadn't had enough, we went out for ice cream and then met Stuart, Whitney, Grace, Paul, Mary K, and Spencer back here in Rose Bud to watch "Taken" at Grace & Paul's house. We had a fun filled Saturday! Thanks guys!

Stuart & Whitney getting ready to bowl!

This is the look I make when somehow I knock over 4 pins and it turns into a strike . . . apparently . . .

This is Dave trying to make sure his foot does that "thing"

Thanks Stuart & Whitney!!!

Women Can Run 5K

There is an organization or group or whatever you want to call it called Women Can Run/Walk that sets up small "clinics" in any town that wants to participate. Rose Bud has participated for the past two years, and this year me, Mom, and Natalie did it with them. You meet two nights a week to run/walk together (there are schedules set up for walkers and beginning, intermediate, and advanced runners to help you train for a 5K). We have been meeting since the end of February, and this Saturday was the 5K we have been training for. We had a good time training and running, but I am still terribly slow. I'm planning to keep running and hopefully get faster!

Me & April - she runs with me and tries to get me to go faster :)
I'm happy to have her with me!

Natalie with her medal and certificate - Go Nat!

After waiting for the final pair of shoes to be given away, we all headed to Chili's for lunch! It was a lot of fun. And it's a good thing we stayed for the door prizes - out of the 19 or so of us there, we won 2 pairs of running shoes, a t-shirt, a fancy back pack, and two Road ID gift certificates.

Kris Allen comes Home!

If you do not know who Kris Allen is, you are no longer my friend. Just kidding, but seriously if you don't know, you should find out :) Kris Allen is from Conway, Arkansas and is in the Top 3 on this season of American Idol. He came home to Little Rock and Conway this past weekend. I was able to go see him at the Rivermarket in Little Rock with Mom, Cindy, Emily, and Kendra which was really awesome. I also went to see him that evening in Conway with David. We really had a lot of fun, except that it was extremely hot and sticky in Conway. I think I liked him even more live than I do on the show!

This is us when we got there around 11 am.

The crowd during the concert - there were a lot of people there!

Kevin from Channel 16 talking to Kris.

This is my favorite picture I took - I think he was singing "She Works Hard for the Money"

Some nice person took a picture for us on our way back to the car, so we could all be in the picture. :)

We were standing in Front Street in front of Mike's Place for the Conway concert - I liked their sign.
