Sunday Bloody Sunday

Nice sleep in until 10:00am. We got up and the whole gang Me, Amy and all 4 kids went on the couch to 5K run. The boys hung with me and the Girls jogged with Amy. We all did a great job and finished strong.

I got the cooking bug again so The Kids and Amy and I cooked 2 pots of soup. I went to the grocery Store and got fresh veggies and the ingrediants we needed and we made Taco Soup and Vegetable soup. The kids helped and they had a blast the whole afternoon makign the soups. They all liked both and wanted more. The Taco Soup is pictured here... <-----
