Weekend Highlights-

Friday began with big smiles and ended with bigger smiles, a family bike ride and park session.  Now that Everett is much more mobile he loves to climb and explore.  He climbed all the way to the top of the playground equipment to the tall slide (and of course wanted to go down headfirst).  I have a feeling we will be spending a lot of time there this summer!




Saturday morning started with cinnamon apple pancakes and cottage cheese cups (topped with almonds, dried cherries and strawberry jelly) on the side for added protein.




Everett feasted on pears, pineapples, oranges, eggs, pancakes and banana.


After breakfast, E got his first oil change lesson.  We discussed the idea of weekend chores and are hoping that he’ll be ready to tackle the next oil change in about 3,000 miles.



We also had a hilly 7 miler on tap along with a quick shopping trip for new socks (oh how exciting our weekends have become!).



Saturday ended with a little bit of cat and mouse play.  Everett loves to go “sneak up” on his daddy, and then as soon as Mike lifts his head, E turns and runs for protection.  So fun.



Sunday was also a pretty “normal” day with a grocery trip and lots of playtime.  Everett also tried out his new-to-him shark Crocs for the first time.  They previously belonged to his buddy Palmer and looked SO CUTE on his little feet.  All boy, all day.




Sunday afternoon was my favorite part of the weekend.  We got to hang out with baby Carson!  He’s one week old today and sweet as can be.



It was so awesome to not only welcome this little guy into our circle of friends, but to have all of the kiddos running around was kind of surreal.  I still can’t believe we are all parents and that we are lucky enough to get to raise these little ones to the best of our ability.  We are all so truly blessed and I can’t wait to see them grow up together.



This week we are back to the grind with a few more training runs (our race is in 2 weeks), after school meetings, girls night dinner, DIY projects and Kennedy’s first birthday party this weekend (that is E’s girlfriend for those of you who aren’t regulars on the blog)!  Here’s to a great week of working, eating and growing-
