Quick Update

Yes, we're still here. Things have been INSANELY busy. 6 hours of boot camp a week is definitely playing in to that. Work has been busy, but only on the lab end. I spent ALL of last weekend in the lab, and we'll probably do the same this weekend. The nice thing is that I also got a 3.5 mile run in while at work. Yes, that's right. 3.5 miles. I'm so proud of myself on that front!!

Here's the briefest summery of what we have been up to in the past 2 weeks . . .

We went to the Seaquarium last Tuesday because I had to be on the Key for work anyway. We watched a dolphin show, and Garrett just otherwise ran around and had a great time.
Late last week, the neighborhood kids decided to hold their own little bootcamp of their own
(Three of us Mommies are signed up)
We spend lots of time playing outside with our friends!

On Thursday we went to Chuck E Cheese with the Shumans and the Criders (I didn't take any pictures :-( ) We've missed seeing Jess and the boys so it was great to hang out. And Garrett had been driving me nuts asking for the "Race cars" at Chuck E Cheese.

We went to the zoo on Tuesday with the Criders, and Garrett got to meet his favorite guy.
Garrett is not so small anymore--he walked all over the zoo from 11-5:30, like a trooper!

Keep in mind the picture with the jackets and the picture with the swim trunks were taken less than a week apart. The weather here is psycho, it was cold and now it is hot hot hot. This weekend we're supposed to get down to the 50s again. No wonder I am sick and the kids have the sniffles.

We've been going on lots of walks for nap time (still loving the jogging stroller). Both of the kids are doing great--Summer is really interested in the world around her. I think she's going to be an outdoorsy little girl, she just loves to be outside and look around. She's all about investigating and chewing on things. She's just so incredibly sweet, with her smiles and coos.

Garrett just blows my mind with the things he says. The latest is "Summer is the best sister in the world!" I'm having a really hard time with the fact he will be THREE in a scant four months. I have no idea where the time is going. He continues to love books and all things with wheels.

I've been really remiss in the photo department--I just don't have the energy to lug the camera these days. With Garrett walking more, we hardly ever even bother to take a stroller. I'll wear Summer in either the sling or mei tai and will carry a backpack with snacks and diapers. I wouldn't even begin to know where to put the camera right now. I love it, but sometimes I wish it were smaller. Oh well. Camera phone pics will do in a pinch. :-)

That's great about running 3.5 miles! I am trying to get into running this year and it is slowly getting easier.
