Summer. All official like.

June 21, 2011 at 9:46 am (Day to Day, Holiday, Summer Break) (, , , )

June 21. Longest day of the year and looking like it’s going to be gorgeous here in the Midwest/Chicago area. They say rain, but I don’t see it. Makes me want to get outside and run run run. Bruising on the foot has shifted to a mostly central location and my toes don’t hurt that bad.

Time to get up and get out. Band and bowling. Benches and bugs. Birds and Bruises. I could probably keep going, but you get the idea. I have alot of  “B” stuff on here. How strange, but I think we’re going to do an outdoor theme. Better get on it, it’s going to be a long day.

Sunday Bug

I have two more left. This was technically the last bug on the tour, but I am putting it second-to-last because I want to go out with a bigger bang! Bumblebee Big! You’ll have to look tomorrow!

Anyway, I still have to go to my sissy’s and it doesn’t look like I am getting outdoors to do any actual exercise today, so I’ll quickly post these things that are outside, in nature, and that will kind of have to be good enough.

You will also have to excuse the extra people in the pictures. For some reason, everyone globbed up right at the end, talking to their friends, pulling snacks out of strollers, on the phone, kids laying all over the grass… and wouldn’t get out of picture range for all the rest of us. But you can still see the bug.


Come on people! Get out of the way!! Go talk on your cell phone out of picture range!

Thursday. $3.60 in the bank.

July 23, 2009 at 2:53 pm (Day to Day, Exercise, Phone Camera, Pictures, Random Images) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Another day of exercise is complete. That is 4 in a row for us!

We used various methods in order to get around the full Three Dollars and Sixty Cents worth of trail. (Please refer to the previous day for the money explanation on mileage)

I ran. Yay! 3.6 miles. Non-stop! Ooooh…impressive to the kiddies. (I dogged it too, but who cares, I did it.)

Mason rode his bike. He probably logged 4.5 miles or more going around on his own.

Stevie scootered it. She prob got about 4 miles circling back and forth around me the whole time.

I was like a planet with my revolving moons…or was I the revolving moon with my planets jiggling in orbit while my shining stars hovered near by? According to my kids, my stomach looks like a water balloon and my butt crack was trying to eat my pants.

Here’s a picture of a giant globe from Art Chicago at the Mart last year. Seems fitting.
