My attempt at a self-timer photo with a palm tree.
Lower elevation + flat roads + WARMTH = the perfect recipe for a good run. I was planning on doing an easy run but I was feeling good so I decided to go a bit faster with each mile.
8:11, 8:09, 7:52, 7:30, 7:27, 7:20, 6:59 & 6:44! I don’t remember the last time I did a progression run and yesterday reminded me of how much I love them… this type of run feels like a game.
Super surprising that my kids that love to play dogs all day long only go through the doggy door at my sis-in-laws house;)
Living the vacation life and these kids felt like they hit the jackpot with a root beer for the car ride.
We packed up the car and hit the road for another 5 hours to get to my brother’s house. We haven’t been to Arizona to visit my brother since Skye was Beck’s age. When it was just Brooke and me we would come visit all of the time and I have the best memories running and spending time here. The desert canal trails were very healing for me … so many things in my head were worked out on my runs here. I do my best thinking when I run and I am giddy to wake up for my run today on them. Okay, that was a long tangent.
There were definitely some stops along the way.
And a Chipotle steak burrito just hit the spot!
Then we made it to my brother’s house. I was so excited to see the clubhouse that my brother built for his kids… SKILLS.
It was 93 degrees so the pool hit the spot.
Beck doesn’t have any cousins close to his age besides this one… I have a feeling they will be best buds in the future.
Just going to spam you with all of the pictures today!
It feels like we skipped ahead into summer.
My sis-in-law (the one that I was best friends with and then set her up with my brother on a date because I wanted her to be part of my family) made this with grilled chicken and egg rolls in the air fryer and it was AMAZING.
She also has a pebble ice machine so I’m going to be quite content for the next few days…
Who has an air fryer… what brand? What are your thoughts about it? What do you use it for?
Favorite road trip snack?!
What type of trees/plants are common in your area?
