Happy President’s Day! I hope that you are able to have a beautiful day and get in a good run! I thought I would document our day yesterday in a picture (or two) per hour that we were awake:)
The 7 o’clock hour (but this actually started in the 6 o’clock hour but below picture is from the 7 o’clock hour):
It’s always fun how on school days the kids will sometimes have a hard time waking up. Then on our one day of the week to sleep in a little more they are all about waking us up as early as they can.
The 8 o’clock hour:
Waffles with fresh strawberries on them.
I really love rest days. We runners put in a lot of hard work each morning (or afternoon or night) and push ourselves to the max and then we have a rest day and we just soak it all in. The hard work makes the easy/rest days feel that much better. I think a morning of no exercise and a delicious breakfast feels even better after working hard during the week. Just add it to the list of reasons we love running, the hard work makes us enjoy the lazy mornings even more!
The 9 o’clock hour:
Off to church (just a few minutes late:)
I would be really interested to know what Beretta does when we are gone for hours at a time. Maybe we should put the GoPro on her.
Just following along the hymns and singing.
The 10 o’clock hour:
Knox made a picture of our little family and added a fluffy dog to the mix because he really wants us to get a poodle (like the one that I had when I was younger… I have showed him pictures). I am on Knox’s team about this decision.
The 11 o’clock hour:
A chocolate from my purse.
The 12 o’clock hour:
Homemade sweet potato fries after church. Trying to get back into our Sunday tradition of this delicious food. I would choose sweet potato fries over regular fries any day.
The 1 o’clock hour:
Andrew was showing me a bunch of pictures from his travel days and we came across this one. This was in Africa and I cannot even imagine bungee jumping. My palms start sweating just looking at this picture. He has no fear.
The 2 o’clock hour:
We made cookies to take to my sister’s house. Normal cookie chocolate chip cookie dough wrapped (all the way) around a Rolo and then baked like normal. If you like Rolos, this is heaven.
The 3 o’clock hour:
My Grandma sent this book to Andrew to read (she loved it) and I am reading it now too… really really really interesting. We fell out of habit of doing quiet time each day with the kids and just started again. It is amazing… an hour of quiet is needed:)
The 4 o’clock hour:
Brooke was thrilled that it is warm enough for flip-flops weather.
The 5 o’clock hour:
My sister had us over for dinner.
The 6 o’clock hour:
They made the most beautiful pizzas. This one with goat cheese was amazing and the bbq chicken one was also a favorite (they get the dough from Sam’s Club).
A colorful salad was perfect too!
The 7 o’clock hour:
We taught my nephew to Dab.
The 8 o’clock hour:
Yep, still dabbing. Just have to remind him to not dab and run at the same time.
The 9 o’clock hour: On the drive home, Andrew told a story about a police officer and Elsa (character list request by the children). These kids LOVE Andrew’s stories. I don’t think they blink for the entire story.
The 10 & 11 o’clock hour… typing on the computer, washing my face, flossing, randomness when I should just go to sleep. No picture because it was just boring.
