Chloe and Miles have been in Florida for the past week with my dad and his wife {lucky little ducks}! It’s been weird different only having one child for the week. Easier beyond measure in some ways but still just as hard in other ways.

Yesterday Eric and I took Colton to hike up to Bears Den Scenic Overlook {we park in the FREE lot off RT 7}. Chloe and I love going there together – we sit and chat and rest before the short-ish hike back down. I’ve brought Miles before but never Colton because he likes to complain about walking. Yes, walking. Much to my surprise he loved it so much that Eric and I spent more than half the time telling him to slow down, stop running, etc or he was going to fall and crack himself on the rocks. He fell once – blamed it on us telling him to look at his feet, had he been looking up he would have been ok. UMM YEAH ok Colton :)

In the morning I ran 10 miles, so the short hike didn’t feel so short.

It’s where I’m at right now and though I would have loved to have run more – I’m not going to steal the joy of the run by wishing it had been something else.

I debated getting up at o’dark thirty this morning but wanted to sleep in on my last day with one little person. Again, to my surprise Colton came in to my room in the morning and jumped in to bed to snuggle. Normally if he is up before me – he is a drill sergeant in my ear yelling at me to come make him a smoothie for breakfast.

This has been the summer of the smoothie! My kids are crazy about them and I finally figured out how to get them to enjoy every flavor – I don’t tell them what’s in them. There are a few ingredients that are obvious, like say frozen raspberries – the others they try to guess while drinking them. As long as I keep them mostly fruity I can sneak any veggie I want in there and they don’t seem to notice!

On to running…..

I REALLY wanted to run this morning so I asked my mother in law if she could watch Colton for a little while I squeezed in a quick short run. 6 miles later, I was happy I made the effort to get a run in even if it meant driving more miles than I ran.

Pictured: One of my all time favorite running tanks – it’s the softest tank I own by far and worth the price. Also it’s PURPLE and PURPLE is lovely. You can find it HERE. I’m still loving my sunglasses pictured HERE for those of you who asked!
