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!!
