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):
It looks like this:
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.
yayyyy! LOVE reading about your run. Love those runs that remind us why we are out there running! awesome! Also...you are running Vegas as well??? me too!!! woo hooooo! and I totally used to be that kid roaming around the house barking...haha!ReplyDelete

That last paragraph = heaven to read.ReplyDelete
Love the swing set.
You are going to love this. I have some walls you can paint! In air conditioned comfort no less...ReplyDelete
I love the painted swing! Great job on the runs. Lately I haven't been feeling the running, so it's nice to read some motivation.ReplyDelete
Playing "puppies!" I love it. My brother and I used to play all the time, mostly to try to convince my parents to get us one. I have no idea why it never worked ;).ReplyDelete
Nice job on your runs!
The swing set looks great. Can I come over for a play date?ReplyDelete
Your girls are so cute and the swingset looks great.ReplyDelete
Awesome job on the run. You are a rockstar!
yipeee! perfect runReplyDelete
Yeah, "I Have Run" sounds a tad better than "I wanted to die." You are doing this marathon training right and you're gonna have a great race.ReplyDelete
BTW, nice of you to recycle. That Before pic of the swingset looked a lot like the Where's Waldo baby robin pic, didn't it?
