You Can Find Us Outside!

Sorry! No blogging lately! It has been 80 degrees here in our neck of the woods for 8 days straight! It's March! We are enjoying it to the fullest!

At the playground......
 My handsome young man.
 Jake took his remote control car to the park one day and Jadon had fun chasing it.
 Jadon can finally to this ladder!  It is straight up and down so it was hard for him.  It still takes a lot of work but he can do it!

 We raced hotwheels down the slots in the slide today!

 Love this pic because Righty is holding a car!

 We finally have our fish tank all set up!  I love it!  It is so relaxing to watch the fish!  So glad we got a tank again!

Oh What A Beautiful Day!!

The weather was amazing in our neck of the woods this weekend and today we enjoyed every minute of it!  The kids spent the entire morning outside doing yard chores....well the older kids did chores.....Jadon played like crazy. 

After lunch I did my very first Couch to 5K run/walk.  This first run was for 20 minutes with different intervals of running then walking.  I will do this same run two more times then next week it will be just a little harder.  I got new running shoes yesterday.  Aren't they cute??!!  Super comfy too!

When I got back from my run which I think was about 1 1/2 miles since my average time was a 13 minute mile Matt said that he wanted to take Jadon and go for a hike.  I said that I would go with them.  I love taking hikes in the woods.  We made Shelby join us too.  Jake was at Grandma Cindy's doing yard work for her. 

That hike ended up being about 2 1/2 miles so I ended up doing a total of 4 miles today!  Hope I can walk tomorrow!! 

For dinner we enjoyed a smoked turkey breast, some turnip greens, and sweet potato fries!  Yum!
