My boys are not little anymore!  How does that happen so quickly?  This weekend Aidan tried surfing for the first time.  Our great friends are big surfers and offered to teach the boys.  Aidan was so excited!  Of course they want to do what the older kids are doing!

surfing A & Liam

It was awesome to watch him try something new.  He is so brave.  And Liam is a great teacher.  Can you tell he liked it?

We had a great time the rest of the day at the beach too.  Note to self – do not build a mermaid sandcastle directly in front of everyone’s beach chairs.  You will spend the rest of the day guarding it!

Eileen and I started the day with a long run on the trail.  It was so great to run with her again!  We saw the biggest dog I have ever seen!  I actually stopped before passing him because it looked like he could take us and his owner!  He was practically a horse!  He was incredibly friendly of course.  Unlike that snake that I almost stepped on.  My apologies to the neighborhood I woke up when I screamed.  Since it was early and we had just ran quite a bit we decided to skip the selfie and go with a shadow picture.  Shadow pictures are not really that flattering, by the way.  We were laughing so hard because we were smiling for our shadow picture!  Can you see it?  Lol.

I did try the mirror selfie that my friends are so good at taking.  I have come to the conclusion that I am just not good at taking selfies.  Oh well…


This is true.  Hard, but true.


This weekend the TrailBlazers did speedwork.  My soccer kids always want to run and the faster the better.  I knew my TrailBlazers would love running fast too.  I mean, come on.  Who doesn’t love running fast?

We capped off the weekend by watching the boat races in the bay.  The boys were very excited about the hat give away too.

The yellow boat won this race, so I was happy.  😉

Hope you had a great weekend too.

So, I am wondering, when was the last time you ran really fast?
