Happy Birthday, Nicole!!

We celebrated Nicole's birthday on Sunday, and we all went to the Japaneese Steakhouse. It's a habachi (sp?) grill. We had a great time with wonderful food!
Jennifer, trying her best to catch some shrimp!

Not the most flattering picture, but Maddie was attempting to catch some shrimp too!


After dinner we headed home and enjoyed some coffee and an ice cream cake!

A Walk in the Park

Chris and I are always looking for fun, new places to walk the Marathon. We decided to head out to Krug Park the other day and hike some trails out there. Chris and I had hiked down to a little water fall about 4 years ago, but had forgotten about it until recently. We found a lot of great trails to walk through. When we found the waterfall; we were pleasently surprised to see it was half-frozen! It was so pretty!

Marathon was really scared to cross the creak! It took forever for us to coax her across.

Here's some odds and ends updates for everyone!
1. I'm (Jillian) working at AEC again. For those of you who don't know, that's the health club I've worked at for years. I'm selling memberships and it's good to not only be doing something I love, but to be around old friends and family while working.

2. Marathon began obediance trainging this past Monday. It's really more training the owners, but I think it makes us feel better if we say we're training the pets. Marathon did really well on her first visit and she even made a new best friend named Max. Max is a great pyrenee and they got along great! Wish us luck with her training!!

3. Chris' company doesn't have any definate details for us yet, but they're looking at a job in West Virginia for him. We'll keep you updated as we find out more. The city they've mentioned isn't very big, but it is only 2 hours from Washington DC. Since neither of us have been there, we're already dreaming of fun weekend vacations!

Well, there's not a lot of updates, but these things didn't really deserve their own blog so I thought an update blog made more sense! Consider yourself up-to-date on the Liu family!
