So our summer fun today was the playdate, which is actually me watching my cousins kids. But our kids (she has two boys almost the same ages as my girls) play great together, so it is an easy gig.
Monday, our summer fun was repainting the swing set. Last time I painted it, I was pregnant with my Bean, so it has been a few years. It looked like this until yesterday:
After a little of this:
And this (2-year-olds take painting the swing set very literally):

Can you tell 5-year-olds LOVE to pose for pictures? The Princess loves to pose almost as much as my Bean hates standing barefoot in the grass:
To finish off the day, I ran two miles. I was going to take one more rest day, but I needed to run both mentally and physically. So I took my sore calves upstairs at 9:30 that night and put in two slow miles on Millie that were TOTALLY worth it. Then this afternoon I ran six miles. I wanted to die the first half mile. But once my legs warmed up and I got in the groove, it was a perfect run. One of those runs that reminds me why I love running.
