Summer Activities finally closed!

the kids sitting on the curb waiting for another round of fireworks on the fourth of July.
Jane just being adorable cute Jane. I love that girl so much.
All three kids, plus Renee's and one of Lisa's at the Dinosaur park in Ogden. Notice what Kate is doing.

Waterfalls above Lake Tahoe at our family reunion in June. I had to really control myself and not freak out too much at the danger involved here.
This is my favorite picture of the summer taken at Fallen Leaf Lake on our family reunion. I just love how natural Katy looks and how beautiful the surroundings are.
Summer started with our family reunion in California. It was a lot of fun and our only vacation of the year so far. We highly anticipated it and were not let down. It was so much fun and the kids loved it.

I was so bored all summer and tried so hard to find activities to do that were free or close to it. Not so easy. My AC was out all summer, which didn't help the whole situation, but at least it was a somewhat cooler than normal year. I did get it fixed today though :) I have to admit that I loved being at home, but really was so happy to go back to work. I know that I will start wishing I was at home and not at work in a few months, but actually I LOVE my job and really do enjoy working. It is great to get out and feel like I'm worth something other than wiping noses and cleaning messes. That could have come out offensively; hope not. It was just SO much harder to be at home all day than to be at work, so I actually admire you women that are full time housewives. I don't think I could do it.

Anyway, I will try to do better at posting my life, not that many people even care, but you never know, some day my kids may actually read all of this. On a good note, I did start actually exercising every single day other than sunday about 2 months ago and have only missed one day. After the running disaster called my body during the ogden marathon relay, I realized I needed an overhaul. I exercise at 5 am every single day and stopped eating whatever the heck I wanted. I eat much better, and am so much happier. I've also lost 11 pounds and look way better. Wow, this eating better and exercising actually works. I'm doing a 5k mud run on Saturday with a friend and can't wait, and then do another 5k "foam fest" in 3 weeks, which is like mud, but foam. Super fun!
