This time, we went for a mile and a half and I felt great. I still took it nice and easy but am definitely feeling that everything is healing up nicely from my c-section. Euan stayed awake the entire time and seemed to be enjoying the view. As much as I usually prefer to run in the early morning hours, there is something to be said for running during a warm and peaceful summer evening. It was a great way to begin the summer.
Yesterday, with temps supposed to be close to 80 again, I decided the kids were healthy enough that we could get out of the house. We chose a local water park, which surprisingly wasn't very crowded.
We only got a little tease of summer, though. Now things are back to "normal" here in Eugene with grey skies and cooler weather so the water parks are out until it warms up again. I'm waiting to hear on some possible tickets to the Olympic Trials (track of course) which would definitely be something cool for us to do. At the very least, we'll walk down and check out all of the festivities. Not everyone is lucky enough to live only blocks away from the excitement, we definitely can't pass it up.
Even though the summer just began, I actually feel like it is going quickly. Yesterday, Euan turned a month old. I can't believe how quickly he is growing. He doesn't seem to have changed but since all the newborn sized things I have for him aren't fitting, he must have grown some. He's still perfectly mellow and enjoys his naps and is completely fascinated by Leona... when she comes close to him, he just stares and stares at her. Of course who wouldn't stare, she is quite the unique one:
|Yes, that is a lovely array of marker all over her legs and the bottom of her feet too of course.|
