Ari's Race

A couple weeks ago Ari raced in the Aquafest Aquarun-fun run for kids. It was a 2k race, so a little over a mile. She was so excited! She did great!!! I was a little nervous with her little lungs and I'm sure I drove her a little crazy asking her every 2 mins if her chest hurt...but she was fine. We ran into my friend Nikki and her kids were running in it too! Ari hasn't played with Candie in a while but she never forgets a friend, and she was super excited to get to run with her!

Slumber party at Juno's house

The kids and I got out of the heat last week with an overnighter at Juno's house. Juno had AC put in earlier in the year and it was niiiice! You should note that "Juno's house" was formerly known as "Greg & Jessica's house", but in a short few weeks, I'm pretty sure little Jun-bug has been given the reigns and is the leader the pack!!
The kids love going to their house. I can't say for sure if it's just how fun Greg & Jess are, or Jessica's selection of junk food, but either way they get very excited when they know we're headed to Ballard! Come to think of it, I'm still not sure which of those options is my reason for heading down there so often? lol
Lilly & Juno got to play, and these little tiny cute puppies play hard. It was non-stop wrestle mania until Lilly finally passed out in the deepest sleep ever. Jessica trimmed her hair,cleaned her eyes & brushed her out while she was asleep and she didn't move an inch. OK, enough puppy talk, they are so cute together, it's hard to stop!
We had a fun, cool, easy sleeping night! (Our house has been sooooo hot at night, the kids sleep fine, but I have been miserable!)

I won't lie, the 2 photos you see below, were actually 1 shot, I was holding both the puppies, they both looked at the camera and it was the perfect shot. However, if you look close in the top right/left corner you can see my huge double chin, almost like I was forcing it out there for the world, so bad, even Jess knew she had to edit the photo. It is NOT easy getting two puppies to post together either!!

The kids having the best bath ever in the Zevely's "hot tub" bath tub! Non stop bubbles & jets & deep water!!
My lover boy
and my sassy 5 year old...

yes, sassy!
3 tuckered out little ones.
Ari showing off her new shirt from Auntie Jessica! and please don't zoom in on D's under-roos. He forgot his backpack, and the only clean undies we had were his sisters! Pink & purple Curious George, at least there is a monkey on them and they are clean right!!
Starting off the morning with finger paints...Jessica is either the coolest person ever, or completely insane! Have you seen her kitchen??
Ari & Juno
Finally the sister's snuggled together on Juno's bed
The following night I came back down to Juno's and Jess & I went to the Kenny Chesney concert with our friend Jill & her girlfriend Melanie. We had a great time, the concert was a blast and I had a night off with no kiddos!

Group shot, Jess, Me, Jill & Melanie. This was taken buy a guy in the row in front of us, who really seemed to enjoy taking our picture. He asked on his own I think 3 times if he could take a picture of us...
It's important to always have a lot of these photos when we're together, not sure why!
The girls again, taken by another one of our new friends behind us!

Jill & Melanie...Love that hat...& the shirtless boy behind you! This was definitely late in the evening!
