It’s FRIDAY!!! We are off to Utah’s amusement park today for Andrew’s work party. I will not be riding any roller coasters because I can no longer handle those things but I will be watching Andrew and the kiddos on them while eating plenty of ice cream.
Let’s catch up on life since we last talked.
On Wednesday night we were really supposed to go paint but we decided we could definitely wait a night to go get some pizza and watch a baseball game instead. (PS for my own future reference, I’m just going to go ahead and add on about 30 hours to however long I think it is going to paint a house to be more accurate;)
After pizza we got matching suckers and took quite an artistic photo with them.
And then it was off to UVU to watch the Owlz play. Andrew’s got the double toddler holding down quite nicely. I do not. I need to get back to bootcamp and lift some weights.
They told me there were dolphins in this body of water below and they were searching for them.
The kids were more hyper than ever so I’m not sure how much of the game was actually watched ha.
But then they needed a break for approximately 20 seconds before they were rolling down the hill over and over again.
While we are on the topic of Brooke cuddling, I have about 25 pictures of Brooke cuddling with the pup on my phone.
I told you that we didn’t just want a dog, we NEEDED a dog.
Thursday morning started off with Josse. It felt like it had been forever since my last outdoor run (probably because it had been over a week…) and so the alarm clock going off extra early was actually exciting (I know, it was bizarre). We ran a ‘new to us’ 7.25 mile loop and saw the sunrise while we were out. It was coolish out and we had a lot to catch up on.
Our next run together is tomorrow at the Timp Half! We really have no idea what pace we want to do tomorrow, we will probably go watchless and run based on effort to make it a workout. We also want to add on a few miles to make it our long run for the marathon training. Win-win-win.
The big event for the day was to a splashpad with Lindsey and Whitney.
It takes a village:
Before ice cream:
Once Andrew was off work we picked up a Jamba for me and him (this is turning into a really expensive habit but we don’t know how to stop…) to bring to him while he was painting.
And then the kids helped him out big time. Two three year old assistants—> every painter’s dream;)
Megan brought us the best fuel. Her favorite healthy zucchini cookies. I’ve been hooked on these for years now. You need to try them.
Along with smoothies, I’m really into cereal right now too (don’t mind Brooke’s bowl… all of our normal dishes are dirty, I need to do dishes). Maybe it is just summer but cold foods sound good all day long:
PS looks like there are some crazy fast girls in my neighborhood (well, 40 minutes away but on Saturday we will be right by them near Park City;) Also, Amy and Shalane were just recently at BYU’s track doing some speed… I used to do my speed workouts there all of the time!
