we love summer and time is flying. 
June 9 I ran my first half marathon. It was so much fun. The weather was perfect and Ann Arbor is beautiful. I finished in 1:45, and it was so fun to see my sweet little cheerleaders at the finish line. 

we opened up the pool, and boy I'm so happy we did! we use it everyday. our days consist a lot of swimming, playing outside, walking the dogs, and looking for rollie pollies. Maze wants to find rollie pollies all day. She loves them. literally. love. kisses and hugs. I can't keep clothes on Maizie. ha! that girl is always naked. I love her.

every spring since living in Toledo we've gone strawberry picking. we always have a good time and come home with lots of strawberries.

happy summer!!

Tucker ran in his first race yesterday.  He was super proud of himself when he finished the half mile & got a medal, he's been literally wearing it since. Wont take it off. I love it. So happy he's proud of himself. I'm proud too.

Hello world. We're still here.

ALthough this week it's been quite a bit cooler, last week the weather was so nice and we were outside everyday.

Kids have been playing so cute together lately. I love it. course. Both seem to have grown up a ton in the past few months.

Sam took Tucker to a hockey game. He loved it and was so excited to go out alone with Dad. (don't blame him, that's my favorite thing to do too!) Maizie & I had a super fun girls night at home.

Tucker had his preschool Christmas program last week. It was adorable and I loved every minute of it. The kids looked super cute on our way out the door. Oh man I love them.

Tucker's best buddy Lily lives 2 houses away from us and goes to the same preschool as him but she goes PM and he goes AM. They loved seeing each other at school because they play together almost everyday at home.

We're getting pretty excited for Christmas around here. I can't figure out how time is going so fast! This is the fastest time has ever gone in my life and it's kind of a trip. hahaha. Wish it would slow down a bit. Life is good!

We swung by Sam's office yesterday for a few minutes and when we showed up, Sam brought the kids out some ice cream cones. T was sleeping but Sam tried to give it to him anyhow. It was hilarious. I caught the end of it in a movie. 


He eventually woke up, but then Maze pretended to sleep and said, "look mom! I'm sleeping with my ice cream!!" hahaha. Oh man she is so silly. I love her like crazy. 


How to make pancakes.

Time is flying. I can't believe it's been 2 months since I've posted! I thought I'd only missed a few weeks! hahaha. My kiddos have both turned a whole year older and celebrated Halloween and Thanksgiving since I've updated. opps. I guess it's true that time flies when you're having fun. My kids have both grown up and changed so much lately, I feel like I'm moving out of the baby phase and onto the kid phase of parenting. It's crazy. and nice.

 Oct 23. Maze turned two. She's acting more like a 4 year old though. Really. It's nuts. She has an awesome personality. Man, I love this girl.

Oct 25. Tucker turned 4. He had a few friends over for a skeleton party. It was adorable, they all showed up wearing skeleton outfits. 

Halloween was super fun. Both kids were really into it this year and we lasted like an hour longer trick or treating then we did last year. Tucker wanted to be the same thing as last year. haha. I love it. I loved watching Tucker in his preschool parade, Sam even left work & met us there to see him. Maze was a doggie & a dragon. She looked adorable in both her costumes.

Tucker brought home his school picture the other day. Sam & I couldn't stop laughing because he pulled a smile that we'd never seen before. hahaha. I love this guy so much.

The biggest highlight of the last few months was that my mom came in town for 2 whole weeks to play with us. We loved it and hated that she had to leave.
