Spring/summer finally returned to our region yesterday. Just in time because the 40 degree weather with freezing rain was really starting to get under my skin. Literally.
On our way home from work, Rich suggested that we bring the girls out for a run. Or walk. He needed to get a run in. I have only been running every other night as I try to ease my body back into running and I had run four miles Thursday night. I am getting some half decent runs in but when Rich and Grammy ask how my run went, I usually respond with, "I'm not going to say it was easy..." So you can imagine that I was a bit undecided if I should push it and run again the very next night.
We have a triple Baby Jogger and a single Baby Jogger - both excellent and highly recommended by me. I decided to go and run a few miles with one of the girls in the single stroller so Rich would only have two in the triple stroller. Plus, I am always up for a challenge.
I ran two miles and I was stickaforkinme done. I still haven't replaced the battery in my "running" watch so I have no idea what my pace was but I think it was faster than I have been running. That is the problem with treadmill running, my friends.
Rich escaped for some evening shopping after the girls went to sleep last night and returned home with two birthday cake Friend-zeees. You better believe I felt I deserved it. Just like I deserved the bacon, egg and cheese McGriddle I scarfed down for breakfast.
Well, Allie has become quite adept at caring for her toileting needs in the morning, including throwing away her (almost always dry) pull-up. This morning she strolled into the family room to tell us that she had seen Mommy and Daddy's ice cream in the trash. Busted!
Okay, onto some cuteness.
Allie insisted on wearing her boots.
That didn't last for long. And bringing the camera along has taught me that I cannot concentrate on both running and photography at the same time.
I love this one as it captures Allie pretending to fly as I was running. Note that she could only outstretch one arm as the other cradled Elmo.
And yes, we have been inundated with mosquitoes already.
