Now that Wichita has moved its River Festival to June, the River Run (which Paul and I have done every year since we started dating) happily coincides with my nephew Dexter's birthday!
At the River Run, Jamie decorated Dexter's stroller, and we walked the kids for the 2-mile race.

|Happy me. Cool Max.|

Thanks to them for always watching, cheering,
and taking the requisite pictures. :-)
After the River Run, we met up with my friend, Kerri Maggard (formerly Kerri Bauck), my great friend from elementary school until today. We have boys separated by a week in age, John and Max. The boys play so well together, so we took them to a park for lunch and play time.

|Happy Birthday, cutie-putootie nephew of mine!|
|Max says the cake agrees with him. :-)|
Happy Melting, everyone!
