Running is EVIL!!!

Ok so I thought I would take a nice leisurely jog this past Monday evening before I had to take Alexis to gymnastics. I had done this same jog several times in the past. Unfortunately this jog will likely be my last forever because running is EVIL!!! While running thinking about what I was going to have for dinner, I guess I stepped off the uneven sidewalk and rolled my ankle rather severely. I was barely able to make the walk home. By the time I did get home, I had a baseball size ankle and really was in some severe pain. I was afraid to take my shoe off because I didn't really know to what extent I had injured my foot. It's now been 3 days and I'm walking a little better now. I didn't go to the doctor but was planning on going if it didn't start to feel better after a couple of days. Today I'm doing much better and even able to walk around without much of a limp. The worst thing about the ankle now is what it looks like. I had to take a few pictures just so I could remember how ugly my foot really was.

Just a little swollen....the left one if you can't see
the difference. (Sausages vs. fingers)

Now this is the beautiful swollen foot. All I have
to say is "Ouch"!

Cape Cod

This past week we had a family trip to Cape Cod. Dean's cousin was getting married so we had a Titas family destination wedding. We decided to drive since it wasn't that far away. (10 hours) Both of the girls were troopers. Emily had a pretty good trip, with only a few crying episodes. I guess for a 2 month old that's not too bad. Alexis was going to be the flower girl in the wedding. She was prepared for the past 2 months. (At least we thought she was) When the time actually came for her to walk down the aisle, she bowed out and decided she was too shy to actually make it down. At least she looked the part though. She did make it out on the dance floor and was a dancing fool the whole night. Here are a couple pictures of our trip and Alexis in her dress.

Alexis did decide to walk into the reception with her
ring bearer by her side.
