Last Week/This Week??

My weeks are starting to run together!!  One of the joys of summer!
There have been lots of runs and workouts, though! We've gotten in 10 reservoir runs in the past few weeks, and a few on the treadmill. There have been 8 workouts in the past two weeks, too! 
Why am I telling you this....because it's been a long long time since I have been able to maintain my normal routine, and I forgot how good it feels!!
I am definitely a happier person, better wife and mom when I stick to my routine!

Here's a few pictures from the past 2 weeks-

Nothing going on here, he's just cute!

He found a bamboo forest in service one day.

This is after their dentist appointment, no cavities in any of their mouths, but Em does have to come back in 2 weeks for an extraction.

That's Emma and our friend Jenna running up ahead, and Myles chasing them down.

Sophie getting some trail time.

She's figuring out her earphones, but it looks like a total pose!

This was Sunday after Brian had ran up on Diablo, I wanted to get a run in, so Em and I ran the res, while Sophie, Peter Pan and Brian played at the park.

Could only mean one's convention weekend!!

Brian promised Myles a fish (why???) a while back, so he finally got one, and it is quite pretty.

There are no pictures of the hours spent in the backyard in the pool, or laying out in the sun, or bbq'ing, or chasing Kona down the street because he keeps escaping the back yard.....but there has been plenty of all that sort of thing going on, too.  As I mentioned above, we have our District Convention at the Cow Palace in San Fran this weekend.  For the first time in 15 years, I will be going w/o Brian on Friday : (  He is not allowed any time off from his new job until August, so I will have to get through the day w/o him, boo.  I should have pics from the weekend up on Monday.
Have a great weekend, and if any of you readers are doing Brazen's Dirty Dozen/Half this weekend, while I hate to miss it yet another year, I hope you all have a blast!!


  1. You should all come down to our Friday on Aug. 31 at the Santa Clara Convention Center!

    Sounds like you are having a great time! Happy Summer!!!!!!!

  2. Thanks, Diane!
    Yeah, we looked at different August dates...31st is after the kids are back to school. August is weird, lots of back to school expenses, Brian has a few days off for camping, then he's on his own for making up Friday....I just wanted to keep the kids 10 yr streak of never missing a day of the 3 days alive...

  3. B-It's so nice to see that even tho Bub is growing up some things haven't changed. He loves sticks, flowers, bamboo and he still loves a good costume. Have a great Convention. Moo
