We spent the last five days out at my brother Matt’s house, having the best time watching Emily and Connor while he, Sheri and Benj were in NYC.
I’m pretty sure Sam is going to have a cousin and Grandpa Mike hangover today and tomorrow. He has had SO.MUCH.FUN! As much fun and awesome as it was, I’m really glad to be back to our routine… mostly my working out and “not eating all the tempting kids snack foods.” Yikes.
Emily and Connor are SO easy to take care of. Sheri has them “trained” so well. They both know exactly what they need/do/have for school and all the extra activities afterwards. I would watch them again in a heartbeat, especially since they played so well with Sam. They love him so much.
Grandpa Mike got in late Wednesday night. Dan and Sam stayed at our house with him every night but Saturday.
The parks and beach area out at Daybreak are seriously awesome! I’m sure we’ll be going out there again for more fun. This zip line park was a HUGE hit. Sam spent several hours there over those five days.
Silly goofs! Grandpa and Ellen took us to dinner one night. I was a little worried what the kids would eat at Tsunami, but they ate lots! Emily is very much an adventurous eater and tried three kids of sushi (unlike me).
Oh, and I decided that I wanted to see how long it would take me to run three miles. I ran my first 5K one year ago today. I haven’t run more than 2 miles at a time really since then, so out of curiosity I ran on Friday morning before Ali and girls came to play. I ran my 5K in a little over 29 minutes. When I ran it on a treadmill it was about that, maybe 30 minutes. I shaved off almost 3 minutes this time. Just goes to show that it’s not all about doing tons of cardio. I focus on lifting weights, sprinting, riding my bike for fun and teaching spin. Of course good and healthy eating habits are a must, too 🙂 I was pretty excited!
Back to our routine, preschool, workouts and eating all the good, whole foods.
Have a great week!
