Monday, September 9


how in the world is it september? 
it seems as though my days last forever, but the months fly by faster than a blink. i guess thats the way it is with little ones. we are really looking forward to "fall" around here with all the pumpkins, baked goods, crafting, and of course halloween!

here are a few snippets from the past few weeks that i have managed to forget amid all of the reading i have been doing :)

the kids are running with me on saturday mornings

we dont go too far, just to the hyatt and back, but im glad they enjoy getting out and exercising. and truth be told, with all the problems i've had with my shins, i dont mind taking an easy run and using the kids as an excuse.

we made an impromptu stop at the park last week after a library run. it ended up being one of our best outings ever!

the kids actually played happily together
let me repeat that.

and since no one else was there, i even ran through the splash pad with the kids... in a white shirt. it felt great. what can i say, im a rebel.

jack also learned how to be a bat. i loved hanging upside down from the monkey bars when i was a kid, so it was fun to watch him... and sneak a couple tickles in those pits :)

last week charlie and i went to the movie theater (pronounced thee-ate-r by the kids) to see monsters university. im not sure why charlie started calling sully "good guy", but he does. we were the only ones in the theater and a big storm blew through. it was a little creepy. but we had a good time munching on popcorn, mike and ikes, and giggling at the silly monsters.

charlie and i are still going to the beach on tuesdays, much to ellie and jack's chagrin, but hey, can you blame me? here's charlie and his pal grace on the swing at jack and cherie's after a tough morning of stealing each others toys and knocking over each others castles.

we love our cousins!
last weekend we swapped date nights and babysitting with bo and larissa. when we had the kids we cooked up a pancake feast and played a fun version of dodge ball, but with stuffed animals. it was kids vs adults. we were sorely out numbered.

What fun! Your kiddo's are so cute! I would love to see how Kinsley does at the splash park. Maybe we can go together some time and Charlie can show Kinsley what the big boys do! :-)
