Saturday, I let the day roll over me. I stayed in my pajamas and lounged around until 4pm. I hadn't even exercised for the day. And exercise was the LAST thing on my mind. It was hot out. I think it even hit 80 degrees. I literally had to drag myself out of the house...with ALL the girls with me. They were thrilled...I on the other hand was not.
However, Reese and Layne both took naps and Blake got a great work out! I jogged/walked about 2 miles, while Blake stayed ahead of me on her bike!! She did great! Hot and sweaty but great!
I needed to grab some things from the store right when we got back so we piled in the car and decided last minute to eat dinner. We grabbed a "5 dollar foot long" to share and ended up at the park. We were so excited to see our friends Nathaniel, Tanner, Lucas and Savannah there. It was a BEAUTIFUL day. The kind of weather day that you would want every day of the year. It was perfect.
After the park we headed to the store. All I really needed/wanted was some spinach. I go through about 3 lbs of spinach in about a week! As a salad, side, in our shakes, you name it we use spinach! Well, we got side tracked and decided to get some different produce items that we'd never tried. So keep watching for some fun produce posts! And please leave some suggestions on different produce items that we can try, too!
We did get a red plum to share that night and the girls really liked it! On Sunday with lunch we each had our own kiwi. Neither of those are new to us, but were in with our adventurous produce purchase on Saturday!

We have been spending time together as a family the past few days. Enjoying time with having Dan still in town! Even if we are just in the car together...we're still together! Friday we got Blake out of school early and went on a little hike. It really was little. But is was fun! And beautiful weather. Then we ventured out to the mall so Dan could have a few items for his upcoming tour. While he tried on some jeans the girls got dressed in some fun little outfits, too. Just want to let you know that they have NO CLUE how to pose their bodies. UGh! Nevertheless, I got some cute pictures. The girls enjoyed a soft pretzel with Dad, running around the mall, and then a fun McD dinner!
Today I went on a hike with my friend, with NO KIDS!!! We had a great time chatting and enjoying the beautiful out doors! I miss my former self: rock climbing, hiking, camping, surfing, kayaking, to name a few.
The rest of the day has been spent taking pictures of the girls indoors, watching one Barbie movie after the other. We'll be heading out to the grocery store here soon enough.
Life is good. We are all happy and well. Hope you are well, too!
By the way, for those of you that may be interested...I have lost 11lbs in the last month!!! Yes, I have been trying and it is paying off! I have been eating very clean and cutting out sweets and junk. Also I exercise 6 days a week for at least an hour. I weigh in on Monday mornings. So ask me Monday afternoon how I am!!!
