Fun and Interesting Weekend
Tuesday, August 04, 2009
I've been a bit MIA from the team again this week - hard to keep up with everything! Last Saturday we went to DD's house in Chicago - we hadn't seen them in a month and the 3 month old grew A LOT (will post pictures when I get a chance). Our son and dil also came, and we celebrated DH's and DD's birthdays. Then on Sunday we all trouped to downtown Chicago (at 6:00 AM!)where our son ran in the Chicago half-marathon. We were all really proud of him!
In the evening there was a picnic at my brother's house to host a cousin from The Netherlands whom I had never met, and his wife who is from Spain - I think she said from near Vigo. We had an interesting evening of English, Dutch, and Spanish - I think everyone had a great time!
DD came home from Chicago with us, along with the 3 boys (ages 4 yrs, 19 months, and 3 months). She seems to be adjusting to her busy brood of boys. I took Monday off and spent a lot of time with the 2 older ones as DD had a bad cold and needed a break.
Needless to say, it's been very difficult to think much about exercise and tracking my food! Especially with all the family gatherings and good food. Tonight we had a potluck with a church group. It's going to be good to get back in the health groove again tomorrow!
