Here's what we've been up to:
Saturday - As usual I started the day with an eight mile run at the gym. I think I'm the only person in the world who enjoys running on a treadmill. In the afternoon we went to the pool which was somewhat fun but unfortunately a little too crowded - I'm not sure how I expected otherwise on a holiday weekend! We had pizza for dinner, then in the evening my parents came over to play Ticket to Ride and I won!
The fearless explorer has discovered a new land!
This might be my new favorite photo.
Tuesday - We went to the park in the morning and then everyone, myself included, took a long nap! We had a nice visit with my parents (the hose + the sandbox = endless entertainment) and then had dinner with Jonathan's parents (hot dogs, potato salad, baked beans, ice cream). Swede and I went on a nature walk in the early evening.
Other than not feeling my best on Monday (and a few meltdowns from the kids, obviously, but you just have to shake it off) it was a really nice weekend! Another good thing is that I took a break from the Internet as well. No email. No social media. No blogs. No online shopping. It was refreshing to unplug and helped me to be more present generally. I think I am going to try it more often.
