Now that school is in full swing and the kids' activities are back up and running,
my head is spinning.
The boys are playing basketball again, so Saturdays are officially game days.
Calvin has now joined his brother as a Cub Scout and he loves it!
Elle is having a ball in gymnastics and I am waiting for another ER visit with her.
She is fearless and determined.
And, I finally got around to putting Elle and Calvin in tennis.
I'm pretty sure they are both going big places in this sport (at least that's my plan)!

I am not a cyclist.
But, when you are continuously being plagued by injuries, you realize maybe it's time to change up your workouts.
And, so I took up biking.
Biking is far more complicated than running.
A runner laces up her shoes, turns on the Ipod, and goes.
A cyclist must gear up: get into the spandex and shoes, put on the helmet and sunglasses (must be over helmet straps...some cycling unwritten rule?), and fill your jersey pockets with phone, tube, flat repair, gels, and bars.
You must check your bike, fill your tires, and load up your bottles.
Then, there is the application of chamois cream, but I'll spare you those details.
It's just a lot of prep work- not what I'm used to.
Then, there's the high.
Oh, the high.
Runners know all about it.
You know when you feel it and I've felt it on many runs.
I've yet to feel it on the bike, but I'm not giving up.
Today, I set out and accomplished 50 miles.
but I'm pretty darn proud of myself just the same.

It was his dad's birthday gift for him back in February.
Well, we got him packed up and prepped him for 4 nights away from home.
We drove him up to Prescott and dropped him off with a lot of really rowdy little boys and VERY TALL grown men.
He was so excited!
Then, came the phone call in the middle of the night.
The stomach flu has really bad timing.
I jumped in the car to rescue my heaving boy.
There's always next summer.

My three sweet angels have had a little too much together time and are ready for a much needed separation.
Only 11 more days.
We can make it.

The yummiest, healthiest on-the-go protein drink...ORGAIN (it's at Hi-Health).
The Tour. I love watching with my man, even though I've been encouraged not to repeatedly ask stupid questions.

He also established National Ice Cream Day as the third Sunday in the month, so that means today is
Baskin Robbin's Peanut Butter & Chocolate
(so good there's even a facebook page dedicated to it☺)
Dolce Vita Gelato- Best Gelato in AZ and close to home!
The old standby...and perfectly all-natural.
I was skeptical that this vegan version couldn't hold up, but it is GOOD!
the hometown favorite, Nielsen's Frozen Custard.
Simple Vanilla is my choice.
