Weekend Update: 8/25/13

My weekend started out on a rough patch – the end of the cookie butter jar. Most of it eaten with a spoon –> it’s that good!


And it has been HOT! here. . . Upper 90s and humid. But that hasn’t stopped the running. I have just made sure to follow my own summer running rules. Smile 


And this was heart melting. . .


Luke  had the hugest grin on his face the whole time he was mowing with Dad.


And then, I had him help me, with the real vacuum!!


And then I needed to clean the windows again. . .




On Friday night we went to the MN State Fair –> full recap post coming up this week. ..


Family run. . . .again very hot, very sweaty!!


Playing with a new toy. . .


And another new toy – his own bubble lawnmower from Grandma Thompson.


Saturday afternoon, I got the baking bug. . . I have no idea why I wanted to turn on the oven when it was a bazillion degrees out. But I made chia peanut butter protein bars, oatmeal chocolate chip cookies (into bars because I wasn’t going to make cookies for hours!)


And I had a good helper. . .


Banana bread mini muffins and Andes mint brownies. IMG_5517IMG_5519

And then Luke and I had the house to ourselves on Saturday night. . .


And then this morning, someone wanted to eat breakfast at his picnic table. . . so we did. Winking smile 


Followed by BODYPUMP 87 – the newest release!!


And another hot and sweaty run. Lunch. Naptime on the couch.

And then Brynn’s birthday party. How is she 2 years old already?


She was rockin’ the cutest pigtails. Smile And I am not sure who was more excited about her present (a basketball hoop) her or her Dad. . .


And we got to catch up with friends (Hi Jodi!!). . . and eat cake = perfect birthday party.


Another awesome weekend!!

What were you up to? Is it hot there too?

  3. Luke is so precious. I love the picture of him licking the wisk (sp?)!
    We have had a cool couple of days with some rain. We need it here, though, to keep the fires at bay.

      Rain is definitely good then!! I would love some rain up here too – thunderstorms are my favorite, although Abby hates the thunder so I always feel bad for her, but she is extra snuggly then and I love that too!

  4. YESSSSS – Luke got to lick the spoon 😉 And it looks like you’re training him quite well for future chores, good mama!

      I know, if only I could get him to push around the real vacuum and not just in one spot… I have thought the same thing of Abby – do you know they make floor cleaning mitts that you can put on your dog??

  5. Haha I went through a whole jar of cookie butter just eating it with a spoon as well. We actually had gorgeous weather here in VA- highs of 80 and no humidity. It was awesome!

  6. You are SO brave for running in this heat! Woooof!
    What a great weekend you had! I can’t wait for the state fair recap!
    Isn’t it funny how you had the urge to bake even though it was a kajillion degrees outside? I am the same way! It doesn’t matter to me!
    I was away this weekend so I didn’t bake but I have a good feeling I would have if I were home!

  8. Ohhh How I MISS MN sooo much and the state fair!! : (

    I just talked my aunt on Saturday who lives in Coon Rapids and she said it has been very hot there.. well hot for MN! hehe

  9. Oh my goodness, those pictures of Luke helping to clean off the beaters should be on a commercial. He is adorable!

  10. Can I borrow Luke for the weekend? He’s quite the worker! You’re raising him right – his future wife is going to be one lucky lady! 😉 What a doll – that picture of him mowing – you’re right. Heart melting!

    And it isn’t that hot in NYC. Some days it gets into the high 80’s, but that is nothing coming from Florida! The mornings are slightly cool and I am loving it! There have been some mornings in the 60s and I think “ooohh this is perfect running weather!” It makes me antsy when the weather is so nice and I can’t run!

      You can have him anytime. 😉 But beware he only vacuums in one straight line and then wants to share whatever you are eating or doing. 🙂

  11. I did BP 87 at my house this past weekend!! LOVEEEE the lunges!
