September like quite a few other months in the year is a Birthday month at our house!
For the past couple years Mark and I have done the Melissa's Run in Banff. Last year it fell on the day of my birthday and this year it was the day after. We only ran the 10K this year and I'm pretty sure we won't ever do it again. The run was very crowded and it just felt like a bit of a let down after having run the 22K there before. It was a really fun little get away though and a great thing to do to celebrate being one year older!!

This little guy had a birthday this month too!!
Sam had a birthday on the 18th and believe it or not my baby boy is FIVE!!

I love this little boy and couldn't imagine my life without him in it. Each year when the air gets cool and the leaves begin to change I FALL even more in love with Sam and thank my Heavenly Father for the blessing that only He knew I needed!
I love you Sam... Happy Birthday!!

YOu and Mark amaze me. 10km is a let down. You have to do the 22km. And I'm sure neither of you "trained" for it!
Thank goodness God sends us what we need...even when it terrifies us initially!
