The beginning.....

My gear for the next 8 weeks as I train for the Philadelphia Rock and Roll Half Marathon!

I am going to attempt to throw a couple of sprints in there. 

Looking forward to getting back into shape!

The Jackman - 2 months

So here he is.....all 15 plus pounds of him... at 2 months he weighed in at 15 10oz.  He was 24.5 inches long and had a head circumference of 16.5.  He was off the charts.....and quite happy about it.

He is still not sleeping through the night.  Loves to nurse and finds his sisters quite fun.  He is finding his gym mat quite entertaining and is such a good boy!

The Hawk

We have been having fun watching this hawk.  There seem to be at least tow or three that have been hanging out together.  Mostly they stay on the roof of the house, but lately he has become a little more bold and one morning I caught him on the deck.  Rosco attempted to catch him too, that would have been ugly!

A little bubble wrap goes a long way...

While waiting for our cousins....we found something to pass the time
bubble wrap!

The Hornbuckle clan left tonight.  The girls had tons of fun.  Brianna was in love with Malachi, everyhting was about him.  Amaris was great with Jack - I could use a 12 year old every now and then.  Overall, we had a great time.

The Beach

We just spent two short days at the beach with our cousins.  We had great weather and the kids had a great time.  The waves were huge, Brianna lost her beloved Thomas croc and Aly lost her goggles. 

Briana loved the waves, she would have stayed in all day.  They knocked her down and she just got up again.  She loved to have someone to help her "jump" them like the big kids.

Aly spent most of the second day collecting shells.  She loves to collect things.

Jackson tried the ocean.....

This was his reaction

I think lounging on the sand may have been just his style.

I think that she should wear this at all times.  The girl finds danger.

Exhibit 1:   Her croc which needed to be replaced after one month:

She burned a hole right through the toe...who knows how.  We took her to get a new pair.  Aly and Bri found these things that you can attach to your crocs - Aly picked a sparkly flower, and Brianna picked this....

I love this girl!

We are here.....trying to stay cool.  The weather is ridiculously hot!

A picture from last week. We are getting good use out of our playroom.

We had a great 4th - spent the afternoon with friends who had a party and then some fireworks.  The girls loved them.
