Weekend Shenannigans

It's Sunday night and I'm tired.
So, this post will be short and sweet...
After a couple months hiatus, I rejoined the Brandon Runners for an early Saturday morning run. I've really missed getting up early and running with the group. Okay, maybe I just missed the breakfast afterwards. I ran 5.5 miles and it felt great. Well, it felt great up until mile 5, then my left knee (it band) started acting up again. So, I'm just going to take it easy and not pack on too much mileage, too fast.
Saturday afternoon, I got really adventurous and loaded up James and Misha and Abby and headed to a nearby trendy children's boutique for a family portrait. It's been years since the girls (our dogs) have been in a family photo, so I wanted them to be a part of this years' Mother's Day portrait. Despite all of the things that could have potentially gone wrong in a children's clothing boutique with two small dogs and a two year old, the event went very well! Actually, the dogs did better during the photo shoot than James did! But, boy was I sweating! Trying to round up both dogs, get James to look at the camera and smile at the same time is WORK! You can see the pictures by clicking on this link.
I think they turned out okay, but I still love the work that my friend Susan does!
On Sunday, Will and I were invited to a co worker's house for grilling and poolside drinks. They have a son who is a few months older than James, so the boys had fun playing together. It was a nice afternoon away, but we are just wiped out and tomorrow begins the work week.
James continues with his swim lessons tomorrow. I'm not looking forward to going back after he's had a few days off, although I could tell he was practicing his "swimming" at our friends' pool today. And, if anything, the lessons have given him a healthy respect for the water. Priceless!
Okay, so the post wasn't too short and maybe not that sweet.
But, it was a weekend filled with sweet moments with my son and my husband so there you go!

Have a great week out there!


  1. The pictures for Mother's Day portrait turn out really nice. You look fantastic Kalani...

  2. Ahhh how I love swimming so much. Don't you just find it so relaxing. Everyone should learn how to swim. If not you might want to consider taking swimming classes.
