The 2nd cup of hot chocolate came today, at lunch time, after spending a 1/2 hour at the pool for swim lessons. It was freezing and I didn't even get in the water. It is overcast and a little bit drizzly and with just enough wind to make it seem cold. Needless to say, my poor kiddos, who were dripping wet, insisted that we drive home with the heater blasting and get warmed up with hot chocolate for lunch. Although the weather forecast claims lots of sunshine and temps in the lower 80's today, this 63℉ and cloudy skies we are currently experiencing at 2:00pm gives me a little doubt.
Anyway, enough about the weather... I know most of the nation is melting into a sticky pool of hotness, so I shouldn't complain. We had a pretty decent weekend. Like I mentioned earlier, Kim and I went for a little course preview of the upcoming EWH. (If you're not doing anything Labor Day weekend, you should come and run with us!) I ran it last year and like most of the races in Eugene, it takes place on the Ruth Bascom Riverbank Path, so I'm pretty familiar with the course... or at least comfortable enough to play a tour guide. However, my tour guide prowess waned upon encountering a train followed shortly by a closed path:
After running I returned home to this nutty little girl:
|Why yes, she does dress herself, how could you tell?|
After the quick ice bath and hot chocolate followed by a hot shower I quickly threw together Calvin's birthday cake and filled up some water balloons while Dan made juice and did sunblock. Then we were out the door to Calvin's "friend" birthday party. Unfortunately only two of his friends were able to make it, but I think a good time was had by all. (Well, except maybe Emme who managed to step on a bee.)
|We just pretended that all the messy frosting was because the jersey was worn and dirty. Definitely not the best looking cake I've made... but it was tasty and that's all that really counts right?!|
|I have a feeling when this kid gets a bit older we're going to have girls lined up outside our house.|
Luckily Sunday was much more low key and even included naps for everyone... my favorite!
How was your weekend?
