Summer Must Haves

June 28, 2017

We’ve been living with triple digits for the last week, and let’s get real, summer in NM started at the beginning of May.

But, since the calendar says that it’s the official first full week of summer, I thought I’d share some summer must haves. We’ve been trying to keep the kids busy outside in the morning, a nap/lunch/cool down break in the afternoon, and then maybe an evening walk or backyard play as the days starts to wind down. It’s been a struggle, because it’s been so darn hot outside, that it’s almost impossible for us to be out in the middle of the day. And there’s no way we’d even have survived this first week of summer if it weren’t for these!

Summer Fruit Popsicles

June 22, 2017

Alternatively titled: It’s hotter than a MOTHER and this is the best way to cool off. But seriously, this heat is so ridiculous. Maybe it’s because I’m getting to be so old, but I can’t do heat. So, I talked Logan in to helping me make some popsicles that are super easy, super cool, and […]

We just wrapped up our first round of summer swim lessons, and I’m happy to say, it went off without a hitch! Last year Logan was a little scared/anxious/not in to the whole swim lesson things. He’s not scared of the water, but last year he had a really hard time doing anything related to […]

Getting ready for marathon training

June 12, 2017

Well, here it is! The start of my marathon training. To say I’m a little nervous is an understatement, and to say I’m excited is hardly the right word. It’s been five years since I’ve trained for a marathon. My body has gone through three pregnancies since then….and life is in a totally different picture […]

Colorado Mini-Vacation

June 5, 2017

This last weekend we packed up the mini-van, loaded up the kid movies, and took off on a Colorado adventure. We booked an Airbnb home in Ridgeway, Colorado [if you haven’t used Airbnb, I highly recommend it! This is our third time using it and it’s been amazing]. Logan loved that they had a trampoline for […]
