Busy Summer Days

I feel like this is the first time I’ve sat down at my computer in weeks. I’ve been so busy with our deck painting project (more on that when we finish) and I’ve barely had time to sleep, let alone blog.

My dad and stepmom came to visit this past Saturday. They stayed one night on their way up to Portland to visit my brother. Piglet had a great time playing with my dad.


Everyone always says how much Piglet resembles Match, but I think he definitely takes after my dad too. Can you see it?


After being estranged from my dad and stepmom for so long, it makes my heart happy to have these moments with them. I’m so glad that we’ve worked things out and they’ve been able to watch my son grow. He loves his grandma and grandpa, and they are so good with him.

Besides the family visit and the house projects, Piglet and I have been keeping busy at the gym. He loves the day care, and I’ve been addicted to zumba. I have wiggled my way down to below my pre-pregnancy weight, and I’m feeling so healthy. Zumba is so fun that it doesn’t even feel like I’m working out, til class is over and I’m drenched in sweat! If you haven’t tried it, I highly recommend it. When we’re not at the gym, we’re either on a play date, at the library story times, or playing ball and other games in the house. This kid is nothing but energy! PS he is growing up so fast! Where does the time go?


Nights have been spent relaxing with Match. He’s been a bit of a stress case with training at the new department, and I do my best to keep our house a stress free zone. I’m hoping to get him out of the house this Sunday, and head to the coast for a long overdue family play day. Let’s hope he’s up for it!




    Boy is growing up fast, stop it!!!

    Yes he does resemble your Dad, and Match too

    Zumba huh is it that good, I’m looking for something new to do

    The deck is fabulous way to go, now come to my house and do it all over again!!


    I definitely see a resemblance with your father 🙂 So glad you guys are mending your relationship. I have always wanted to try Zumba… But I wish I had a gf to take it with (I have first-time jitters, LOL). I’ll have to ask around 🙂

Your comments make my day!
