Hello Monday

We had a super fun weekend around here.  Nothing super special, just playing outside when we could stand this crazy heat and spending time with family.  Oh, and doing some awesome bike riding of course.

Dan and I both got some form of what Sam had so Wed-Friday were not fun.  Thankfully no throwing up for either of us, but we both felt like we got hit by a bus with tiredness and my stomach hurt like crazy Thursday and Friday.  I finally started feeling better and actually got some sleep on Friday night.  I was running on about 4 hours of sleep those days… NOT good.  So glad that’s over.

feelingbetterAfter waking up too early, Sam and I got to snuggle a lot on the couch Saturday morning.  I was feeling SO much better.  Dan was out on a long  and beautiful ride.

Despite feeling like crap, I made it out to the splash pad with him one day.  He’s never been a huge fan of splash pads, but this day he wanted to keep playing and playing.  Making progress 🙂sirisamloveAlso spent a bit of time with Janie and Siri.  He and Siri don’t always play super well together (mostly because of Sam and the phase they are in) but when they do, they really love each other.  So cute.

Dan and I did a similar ride this weekend, but he added on a bunch more to his.  Both were super pretty, way cooler temps and new -to- us trails up in Park City.  So fun!

Crazy guy, but so glad he’s getting out on his long adventures again!

Oh, and check out some cool photos of Dan riding, right HERE on Mark’s website.

Have a good week!  I’ll be back again on Wednesday or Thursday for my weekly weigh in and other stuff.
