Good morning! I’m up bright and early this Sunday morning because we’re going on a 12-15 mile bike ride with my family later this morning. My brother is coming over in a little bit to help us load our bikes into his car to bring them over to my grandparent’s house. My dad, stepmom, and stepbrother are also going on the bike ride. It should be a fun morning!
I was also up early yesterday morning to go to the 7 am boot camp. Don’t normal people sleep in on the weekends? Or maybe that’s people without kids? I think once you start popping babies out, it’s a lot harder to sleep in on the weekends.
Boot camp has moved indoors now that the weather is getting cooler. We did a lot of different exercises and it was a tough workout. Some of the things we did included:
- running laps around the gym
- bent over rows
- jump roping for 90 seconds, then 60 seconds, then 30 seconds
- walking lunges
- squats thrusts
- jumping jacks with weights
- triceps dips
- ab work
Note to self: bring more than 24 ounces of water with you to boot camp. You’ll need it.
When I got home, I showered and got ready, and we headed to my aunt’s house in Wisconsin to celebrate my grandparent’s 75th birthdays.
JadenĀ insisted on wearing his tie – so I let him. He associates a collared shirt with a tie, so as soon as I put that shirt on him, he tore his whole room apart, looking for his tie. Whatever. He’s got style.
My super sweet aunt bought me a Kashi meal because she had chicken catered in and knows that I don’t eat it.
Someone enjoyed the Kashi meal just as much as I did:
My aunt also got some fun toys to keep the kids busy:
And who doesn’t love chalk? Well, me actually. It’s messy and gets everywhere. Especially when someone draws a giant spider web, and someone else rolls around on the chalk spider web pretending to be a fly trapped in it (read: my kids).
SomeĀ of us:
A yes, I wore my jean jacket. I’m still waiting for the perfect opportunity to wear my jean shirt.

Questions of the day:
- Do you sleep in on the weekends or are you up early?
- Any plans for today?
- Cake or ice cream? Is this a trick question? Both. Duh.
