and oh do we go! grocery shopping, dinner at subway, the library, the aquarium, target,the playground.
we have to go so that i don't go. go nuts, that is. :)
i was THRILLED to find a grocery store that could fit both car seats across the front of the cart. LIFE CHANGING!!!
soon, the littles will be sitting in the grocery cart and no more carriers. YIKES! i'm nervous about the transition, but i know i'll figure it out.
forts in the living room (yes,that is a baby pool underneath the fort...no water, ha!),swimming in a giant rubbermaid container (b/c who needs a slip n slide, sprinkler, or baby pool when you have a box?!?!?!?), grocery store, and tummy time.
we read library books (LOTS during the summer!), but our favorites are the ones that J recorded for the girls. here harper is "reading" one to lucy.
using egg replacer, of course! SOMEONE (ahem- sadie) went a bit out of control w/ the pink sugar. mmmm. crunchy.
we get summer cuts:
and then i think HOW did sadie not have this cut her ENTIRE life? it suits her perfectly!
and jimmy says she looks so much more like me now that her hair is like this. i like that. :)
well, it's not the same with these two. :( but i make a concerted effort to snuggle, hold and interact with them individually. they LOVE the attention.
since last wednesday, i've been to five classes. so far i've tried turbo kick, zumba, step, and an OUT OF CONTROL cardio class where i swear the instructor was on speed. i SWEAR it. it was SO hard. i did take it directly after i took zumba, and maybe in hind sight 2 hours of cardio in a row wasn't the best idea.
i don't know why i didn't do this sooner. i LOVE taking classes, and my girls love playing in child watch at the YMCA. it's a win- win.
and something i didn't anticipate? is how good it is for me mentally and emotionally! i need that hour break...it has made me happier and more positive!
hoping i start to see results soon. i FEEL so much better, i just can't wait to SEE it!
and at the end of the day, blessedly, thankfully...
so grateful for the blessing of spending this summer with my girls. recognizing it for what it is...a gift.
see you soon, hope your wednesday is beautiful and blessed!
