Beach Round 1

We headed to the beach for a few days with out good friends and we had lots of fun. Lots of crazy too with 4 little girls running around. My kiddos are such water babies it's nuts!  The first night we got there we headed down to the beach with out clothes saying we would just play in the sand. That quickly turned into taking clothes off...

Our second day we did a lot of playing/digging in the sand:

Plus one good family photo:

Some Miscellaneous pictures:

I took an archery class and did pretty good. Will be going back again next week. You better watch out!

Took P for a run around the block:

I took this photo of her the other day just sitting in the grass so enamored with what she was doing and I liked the way it turned out. :)

My Two Crazy Kids

We've been chugging along and I have some random photos of the girls from our days. I've been trying to take more photos of them which I think I am doing pretty good at. We had a yard sale a week ago and the kids had fun going through old things. 

Me and my funny T:

P has her silly moments too:

She has found she loves blowing dandelions and I snapped this sequence one day.

Strawberry Farm

We (P and I)  took an outing to go pick strawberries with our friends since they are just in season and had tons of fun. We picked tons of strawberries. P had a great time and enjoyed the adventure followed by eating homemade strawberry ice cream at the farm.

Swimming is just not going well. I feel pretty nauseous and dizzy most days when I swim. Not sure what this is from...getting older, the flipturns. Not sure. My Thursday bike ride was awful and tiring. But the Sunday ride was much better and I was able to feel a bit better on the bike then I have been.

Slip n Slide Fun

We had an impromptu slip n slide outing at our neighbors the other day. Lots of fun was had. P has no fear of anything and thought it was awesome and T warmed up to the idea eventually and had fun too! T had to get pushed down the slide but P would run at full speed and just go!

Last Week in Numbers

Monday-off due to my knee
Tuesday- 4 miles easy (9:05avg)
Wednesday-5.2 miles (8:30avg)
Thursday-50 min trainer ride
Friday- 2000swim, weights, abs
Saturday-6 miles (8:40avg)
Sunday- 25 mile bike ride 16.8mph

Nothing too exciting this week. Rode my bike on the trainer on the screened in porch, pushing my gear ever 10-15 min. My swim workout was a bit better, did 2x200 on the 3:00, and swam them in 2:29, 2:34. I also at the end of the workout did a 100 hard and manage to swim 1:10. Eh. Making progress I guess.

I have decided that there is no flat place near my house to ride my bike. This has made for hard rides.

A few random photos of the girls. The weather is turning warmer which is nice. But I know it won't be too long and it will be hot! Classes are over and I'm getting ready for a rather laid back summer which will be nice. While I have things I have to do, nothing seems overwhelming this summer!
