Last night we took a family walk it.
We really need to do this more often.
We even spotted a doe and her babies.
Pretty cool, right?
It made for a late dinner and a late night complete with grumpy boys, but it was worth it.
Random, but lately this guy has been surrounding himself with any stuffed animal he can find to sleep with.
I had great intentions of getting up at 5:00 am this morning. Those intentions got kicked to the curb right when my alarm went off even though I had a pretty motivational message written to myself on there.
I finally dragged myself out of bed about an hour later and got on the treadmill. I had intended on doing a speed workout, but that didn’t happen either. I got in some faster miles though.
I ran a couple warm-up miles and then did around 7 at a 7:30 pace and the last 2 at 7:00 pace.
It was a tough one, but felt good to pick things up a bit. The whole emotional stress effecting performance and motivation is no joke. I’m just trying to do what I need to get to the San Francisco Marathon in a couple weeks.
On a different note, I’m really loving the new Wave Sayonara 2 shoes. I also just noticed that they come in some other cool colors.
My morning visitors included Nala (who has come out of hiding since Kitty’s been gone),
Bradley Cooper in this random ABC Family movie
and then these cute guys.
The breakfast set up lately has looked a little like this.
Yes, I love breakfast.
Every day we play at least a couple of games around here. This week we created a new game that we’re pretty proud of so we thought we’d share.
Here’s how it goes in case you want to play it at your house.
It’s the letter finding name game.
First you get an index card for each letter of your name.
Everyone is in charge of writing our his or her own letters of the name on the cards.
Then the “hiders” hide all the letter cards around the house.
Then it’s a race to see who can find the most cards.
Once all the cards are found, you have to find and spell out your name.
Okay, I’m off to play this game yet another time.
I’ll be back a little later with a fun giveaway for you.
Do you go on family walks? If so, where is your favorite place?
Do you have any fun game ideas for us to do? (I have a feeling this letter one will get old quickly.)
