I didn't do all the walls, just one and a quarter.

See that super soaker contraption thing in the background? Yep, a kid DRENCHED me with it (I didn't have my suit on either!) Where was his mother? Reid made a valid point...
Why is it that we always ask where a kid's mother is, couldn't he have been there with his dad?
Here's another "water" thing from the weekend. I love the drink called Bootleggers, and we decided to try and make it on our own. We continued to add water throughout the night and it was a bit tart to begin with. They were yummy though! You can find the recipe here!

I look forward to the cross training days, I don't have to be as awake, and it tends to be an "easier" day. It's really quite peaceful, there are a few other runners or bikers out there, but for the most part, it's just me and the sun coming up over the downtown skyline.
1. It was one of those perfect mornings and I was deep in thought. I occasionally look over my shoulder to see if there are any "Lance Armstrong's" about to fly by me. There was one a ways down, so would be passing me in a little bit. The next song on my playlist was this : **You only have to listen to the first 5 seconds, sorry about the actual video it was the only one that played the lyrics I needed.**
Right as Madonna said "What are you looking at," the Lance Armstrong biked past. I about fell off my bike! That got the heart rate up!
2. There's always an interesting story from the bike trail. This morning was one of those mornings when the alarm goes off and you think "Isn't it Saturday? Can't we sleep in?" There were many yawns as I was biking down Georgia Ave to get to the trail. There was a large truck coming behind me, so I did my best to move over to the side as far as possible. Made it to the trail, still yawning, biking away and I realize it's getting brighter, but it's an overcast morning. I look behind me and there are headlights coming right at me! Headlights! WHAT?! Cars can't fit on this trail, but wait, it's not a car, it's a huge truck! What in the world? As it gets closer I realize it's the same truck that past me on the street. No mom, it wasn't following me. I guess it was making its way to fill in some bumps and pot holes on the trail. A little warning would have been nice.

**Sharing a popsicle after nap, outside in the shade on the lawn chair. We were giggling so hard when the juice would run down our chins and drip all over us. Stickiness is part of summer...even for neat freaks like me!

She needed some cheering up...
Sally missed the nights, in that, she slept through them. She was down at 7 and was up at 8 (I know, we're lucky). Here she is one morning happy as can be, eating her breakfast. Queen of the thrown!
Here are a few videos, if you'd like to see more you can go to my you tube page here.
Grandma Nancy celebrating life, but not aware she's being recorded doing it :)
Maddie enjoying her dip off her leg, she's got the cutest little voice!
Lastly, Grandma Peggy celebrated life by taking it to the extreme. She did the tire swing. My creative cousin thought of the idea of using another rope to pull up the tire swing...FROM THE DECK! Check back to a previous post where I took a picture of "the cabin" and you can see how high it went up! Most of us went on the swing and I got most of the videos that you can check out at the you tube site! Way to go Grandma!
