Fresh food

This has been the best year of eating for us!  We have some good friends who own a community garden.  As a baby shower gift, they gave us a share.  It's been amazing!!!
Corn on the cob, green beans galore, tomatoes out the ding dong, peppers everywhere, cucumbers long, short, and even yellow round ones, scrambles of eggplants, rounds of delicious fresh melons, summer squash, basil, cilantro, some potatoes, kale, and a few onions.
My favorites besides just eating fresh raw veggies, have been -in no particular order-
BLTs!!!!  Mmmmmmmmm!  Even the kids had seconds!!
Fajitas!!!  Even without the beef they were amazing!
And fresh homemade SALSA!

Thanks friends!

Old woman

I've decided that when I get old and decrepit, to the point where I need a walker to get around... I'm gonna use a baby stroller instead.  And I'm gonna put a little sweet baby dolly in it.  It might make me appear to be senile, but I think it'll be fun.  

Last week of summer events


I wonder if I could ever be an excercise junkie...
I was invited to a twice/week excercise class.  Monday is a boot camp class workout.  Wednesday is a Zumba class.  Once/month on Wednesday, they do Sentura.  Turbo likes loud booming workout music... it lulls him to sleep.  
Binkles started cross country this week.  It's Tuesday/Thursday.  I decided that I'd try to join the running club and train with them.  It's a good back workout to run with a babe strapped to your front!
Monday is my favorite of all the exercise days.  So much that I told star boy's kindergarten teacher I can only volunteer once/month in his class because it cuts into the boot camp class and I can't do both.
I love having sore muscles.  I bet I could be an exercise junkie.  Just not at this stage of my life...

Picture update

My little man

Turbo is now 3 months old.  He talks, laughs, plays with toys, purposefully rolls and scoots, sits up, and has found his hands.  HE'S JUST ALL SORTS OF GROWN UP!!!!  It's making me all sorts of sad.  You know, with some of my kids I was really rushing them and super excited for them to hit milestones.  I'd like to enjoy this baby boy!  He's not staying a baby for long!!!!!!!


I've been noticing lately that my skin is starting to look old.  Over the pregnancies (that's when mine came) I've acquired a few of those red dots that fair-skinned people have.  But in close-up pictures recently, my face looks older than it used to.  
I'm beginning to see swindles on my forehead.  That's the only place I've noticed.  Although my leg skin isn't as tight as it used to be...
