10 on the 10th - August

Our first morning in Colorado…..
 Scott and I brought along our training partner on a morning run.
 Charlotte couldn't wait togo hiking!
 Despite his sullen look, Rocco loved every minute of chasing the chipmunks in Colorado!
 The best part of vacation was having daddy with us all day!
 The boys cross a tallis slope on our first hike.

 We hiked up about 1/2 way Carbon Mountain.
 A break for lunch, Mae was happy to be out of the backpack.
 Charlotte enjoys stopping to smell the flowers when she hikes!
Gak and Charlotte

New 5k PR

…I think.  At least I can't remember running faster than this.
5k - 22:16

I'm getting old..and I really need to throw away this shirt!
I wonder if these girls will be famous one day?  If so, I have a picture with them.  Yep…I am the old lady that came in third place to the two young ones. ( Heather and Kaytlynn Welsch)

I had a wonderful birthday weekend being spoiled by my loves!
 Charlotte suggested we go to La Madeline for lunch in celebration.  I never turn down mushroom soup!
 Scott brought home cupcakes and….
 kept an eye on all three kiddos while I enjoyed a pedicure!
 Birthday Selfies!
 Charlotte's gift to me….bright red lipstick!

I am always giving Cooper the speech about being grateful and recognizing what a wonderful life he has.  I guess he has been listening!

 The next day, we met Mimi and Gak for brunch and Nana and Papa for dinner. Lots of feedings = my kind of birthday!

Tooth Fairy Gets Fancy

Apparently the tooth fairy gets fancy when you leave her two teeth…or maybe it's because they were extractions!  As we were walking in to the dentist Cooper said, "This is the best day of my life." He is such a funny kid.  I think he was looking forward to a watermelon slush.
 Cooper found this in the tooth fairy pillow and claims, "The tooth fairy must have a crush on me!"

Fun Not from a Bucket

Here are a few fun things we have done that never made the bucket list…..
 Houston Dog Show


 Charlotte created a runway of books to model her new school clothes and
 played project runway with a few of my old maternity frocks!
 A trip to the Lego store and Build-a-Bear for filling up the marble jar!
No more night wakings or feedings. Mae is sleeping through the night!!!
