I have a new post up on HRG Baby!!! You can find it HERE and I’d love to hear your thoughts about it today!
We headed out late yesterday afternoon for a little family vacation! Somehow the summer booked up quickly between kids being gone at different times and Andrew’s hospital/school schedule so we decided to do our family summer trip this week! I’m still pretty traumatized over airplanes (last time I was on an airplane to take Brooke to her dad in California… I have never felt so sick in my life… Brooke’s poor Elsa backpack;) and we didn’t want to go far so we are in Park City! Andrew’s aunt works at a hotel here so we got a great deal too (THE BEST)! The kids love hotel life along with the pool, maybe some hikes, the lake and the Alpine slide (a slide that goes down the ski mountain here)! I’ll of course document every little thing we do and show you.
Yesterday was another 7 mile run (the mileage that feels best right now).
Yesterday was the THIRD DAY IN A ROW that finished with the exact same average pace. I don’t even look at the pace during the run but for some reason 9:22 per mile is exactly where my body wants to be this week. I kind of love it when weird things like this happen. Maybe my watch is just not working anymore too ha.
Andrew is getting more into weight training these days so I joined him for a bit of stretching shoulders/glutes/hamstrings at the gym afterwards. I was excited because it looked like my water bottle (I can now use my water bottle again.. for some reason I couldn’t during the first trimester much) and my shoes matched perfectly. They don’t look like they match as much in the picture though;) I also wore my socks that I got from our last half-marathon.
I had a smoothie after my run. After the gym it is completely normal to have a chicken sub at 9 a.m. I was hungry and ready for another meal (and a brush;).
We picked up Knox and we all started playing tag.
Fast forward through getting a bunch of stuff done (because that is boring) and we hit the road for a 45 minute drive to Park City.
I couldn’t catch Knox sitting still on the rocking chair.
They were so so excited.
A hotel might be more exciting to them than Disneyland;)
As soon as we dropped off our luggage we went straight to one of my favorite places in Park City for dinner… El Chubasco.
This place has the best salsa bar you have ever seen! The tacos and taquitos are excellent…
I was still hungry after eating above goodness. I’m telling you, my hunger is back and making up for the last 3ish months of no hunger. I had some nachos for dessert;)
The highlight of the trip for the kids… the hotel pool:)
Rocky Chocolate Mountain Factory is kind of a must if you are in Park City (or anywhere that has one;).
We finished off the night by watching Minions on the tv in our room. The kids were so confused about the commercials that kept coming on during the movie ha… they are used to Netflix or DVDs and never watch anything on normal tv.
*If you have 49 minutes… you really need to watch this story about Jim Walmsley and his first 100 miler that he ran at the Western States 100 mile endurance run. Absolutely amazing. If you watch it on the treadmill it will make your treadmill run FLY BY. SO incredibly inspiring. All of the goosebumps. I think I’ll rewatch it again today. It’s an awesome film. It’s fun to just watch his stride:)
Don’t forget to check out my new post over on HRG Baby (if you are interested:) and I hope you have a great day!
