We Love Summer Vacation!

Anderson and I are just loving our summer so far. It's so nice to have some leisurely time without feeling like I have to work all the time to get caught up! We wake up a little later, enjoy some time on the deck in the mornings, and play all day! This week we went to the zoo with some friends and their babies. We also went shopping and had lunch with James downtown. We are really looking forward to our busy summer full of traveling, biking/running events, and having visitors. We are also going to visit our families and friends in July. It seems like we seem to book our summer up every year and then it goes even faster. I guess that's the way we like it.
Anderson is keeping us busy and is on the move. We have some videos we'll have to post later. He is crawling bits at a time but we're sure that in the next few days we'll be chasing him.

Anderson and his friends.

He seems to always be in the crawling position now.

Silly grin.
Silly boy.

Look out!

Weekend Fun

We had a fun weekend but it really went too fast. Anderson and I felt bad for daddy because he had to go back to work today. This past weekend we made a trip to Wyoming so I could do a half marathon in the Medicine Bow National Forest. We stayed in Cheyenne, which isn't too exciting. For some reason I thought it would be a great idea to get a latte from Starbucks on our way to Cheyenne the night before my run. Not a good idea because I only get three hours of sleep and 4:45 in the morning came way to quickly. The run started at 6:00 in the morning and I honestly didn't feel like running; plus it was cold and windy. Well, I ran it and boy do my legs hurt! It was one of the hardest runs I've ever done. I did have to walk quite a few times and there were times when I didn't see anyone during the run. Usually I do larger events. The crazy thing was that there was also a full marathon and a double marathon. Amazing! I can't even imagine how their legs feel after 52 miles. Besides our exciting adventure to Wyoming we grilled with some friends and James ran the Bolder Boulder. I wish I could have run it but there was NO way since it was the day after my run. The Bolder Boulder looks like a lot of fun and there were approximately 50,000 people that ran it. James had to partake in all the fun festivities including caffeinated beef jerky, the slip and slide, jello shots, and who knows what else. I'm proud of him for running a 10K because he really does not like running. He would choose to ride his bike over running almost any day.
I'm enjoying my first day off for the summer. In the past few days Anderson has done so many new things. He is clapping his hands, is starting to wave, and yes, he's crawling. He's not to the point where he will take off and I have to chase him but he's just about got it down. In the next day or two I will be chasing him!! We are enjoying a leisurely day and then tomorrow we're going with several of my work friends and their babies to the zoo. It's great to have more time to spend with my little cutie.

Where's the water?

He looks like a little boy in this picture.

One of Anderson's favorite times of day.

He loves to hold onto things stand up.
