The Colemanator

We headed down South to Brownsville this weekend to celebrate Coleman's 5th birthday. It's been a weekend filled with laughter, tears and lots of joy. Coleman is the most loving little boy and it is always a blast hanging out with his sweet little soul. Then there's LadyBug who as I type this is saying "Deenny, denny denny denny" and swinging back and forth on the bed next to the computer. Children are so healing on the soul.

After Coleman's birthday at the Rolling Rapids we headed to the 5th street Market in Eugene to meet up with 3 out of 4 step sisters - some of whom I haven't seen in 10 years! (A previous marriage my dad had with an wonderful and kind woman Kathleen.) It was so amazing to see what beautiful women they have all become and reconnect with them a decade later. We had some laughs, tears, and most importantly set a date to meet up with them in the near future in Seattle. (Without the kids - most of them have 2 a piece!) It's going to get rowdy!

Then Marcy and I headed back to Brownsville for some amazing home cooking and are chilling with more family. We head back North to Seattle in the morning - but in the meantime are enjoying laughing and being with one another. I'm usually in LA at Track Nats this time of year - and it's nice to take it off - though I can't wait to be back at the same time.
