Our summer so far has been super busy but super fun! Almost all of our weekends are already planned for us and I'll admit sometimes I want roll my eyes and think I just want a calm weekend but honestly I'm so happy our weekends are filled with our family and friends.
On this particular day Bella decided to dress herself and she said she was a missionary! How cute is she? And how could I ask her to change when she said she was a missionary?
My girlies and I. These girls are so fun!
The day before Bellas 6th birthday. It was our last time hugging her as a 5 year old. I love this little lady and I honestly can't believe she's 6.
After Bellas birthday party Doug and I were incredibly tired but Doug's dad side of the family was having a get together and most of them hadn't even met Charlie yet so we obviously had to go. Doug and I really didn't want to go after her party but we knew we'd regret it if we didn't and I'll tell you what I'm so glad we went and I knew we would be too. Dougs family is so fun! I loved being around everyone again.
It's summer time and I've been really trying to make sure we're not just sitting around watching tv all day so we added some much needed structure. Bella has "homework time" after lunch every day and I'm loving the quiet time. It truly has made the day go by smoother.
Speaking of smooth Blanca and I did the sawtooth relay together this year. A team of 6 running 61 miles. It was so fun and so hard. Blanca killed it!
I feel like I did great during the first 5 miles. I enjoyed the view. My legs and hips didn't hurt. I really felt great! My second leg 4 hours later was 4.7 miles and I thought I'd do okay. It wasn't too far but I did terrible! Right before I ran I felt so hungry but I was afraid to eat so close to my run. I started and My lungs were on fire. I felt sooo dehydrated and just tired. I had never felt like that during a run before. I truly couldn't wish to be done and I was so glad when I was. I was grateful my team was super nice about it and told me I did great because I finished. Plus Lori gave me her Gatorade which is pretty much like donating blood during a race like that right?
It really was such a fun experience. My team was so nice and supportive! I feel lucky that I had them especially my sister for my first sawtooth relay.
My hard work has been paying off because this little lady has been noticing and been begging me to run with me so I finally took her. She ran 1 1/2 miles with me and did great!
Charlie has also been loving her babies. I was never really into baby dolls and neither was Bella but Charlie had loved them forever! I love watching her play with them it's so cute!
This is only a fraction of our summer and it truly has been so fun! I hope the rest of our summer can be just as fun!
