Seven on Sunday ~ Week 32

Last day of Summer for us!!! Back to the routine tomorrow! We had a GREAT summer but it was SHORT and we were left scratching our heads wondering where it went. We didn't get to half the stuff on our "summer to do list" but I think we still had fun!!!

Day 1: Sunday ~ We spent the day in SF and visited Dolores Park--this was on our summer to do list--CHECK! It was so pretty--can't believe we've never been there!!


Day 2: Monday ~ Yep, this ball of fur is currently living in my house. I refuse to get a "real" pet like a cat or dog so I have to appease my animal lover somehow. She has such a love for animals and such a big heart, I couldn't refuse :) And she takes care of the other guinea pig 100% now so I know she's responsible. Sooooo....welcome Bear! #amotherslove #furball #uglycute




Day 3: Tuesday ~ Taco Tuesday!! Probably one of my favorite crockpot meals!!


Day 4: Wednesday ~ I swear, he puts up with her. I don't know why or how but they have this weird bond. #oppositesattract


Day 5: Thursday ~ More bonding :)


Day 6: Friday  ~ Good Lord the girls have discovered Snapchat! Maybe they can teach me how to use it!

Sarah's makeup!


Doggie!


Day 7: Saturday ~ Some pics from our Napa picnic on Saturday! It NEVER gets old!!!

Seven on Sunday ~ Week 31

It's on time this week!!! :) This was our last week before I go back to work on Wednesday. I'll still be working 2 days a week but this week, I have meetings Wed-Fri. Summer is officially over!!! As much as I LOVE summer, I think I'll be happy to have the routine back....as much as I know I'll complain about it! HA!


Day 1: Sunday ~ We were driving home from camping on this day so one more pic of big trees :) They are just amazing!!


Day 2: Monday ~ She's so peaceful...when she sleeps :) She's a whirlwind the second she wakes up!


Day 3: Tuesday ~ Tuesday was our neighborhood's National Night Out ....the face painter was pretty elaborate!!!


Day 4: Wednesday ~  One of our favorite places to go is the Lindsay Wildlife Museum. It's just a cute little place where the kids can see/pet all types of animals from owls and guinea pigs!! They love it!


Day 5: Thursday ~ I find the most random pictures on my camera roll when I go through it each week! LOL!!

Day 6: Friday ~ We all went on a good old family grocery shopping trip! UGH! :)


Day 7: Saturday ~ I spent the day in SF with other coaches to learn and workout! I am truly blessed to be part of such a great company. Love how coaches come in all shapes, sizes and from all walks of life. And it's such a kid friendly company! So many people brought their kids and had fun doing the workouts!

Seven on Sunday ~ Week 30 CAMPING EDITION!

Yes, I am fully aware it's NOT SUNDAY! I know, I know. I should just drop the "Sunday" and just call it "Seven." Well, actually that doesn't work either because today I have more than 7 pics!! HA!
We'll just call it a work in progress!! I love having this though, to stay accountable to getting the pics off my phone and preserving all the fun memories!!

This past weekend was super fun! We did our last camping trip of the summer! (well, maybe!) Somehow I got completely lucky and scored a site at  Calaveras Big Trees National Park, about 3 hours from here. Someone must have cancelled because two weeks in advance it's IMPOSSIBLE to get a site at a state or national park out here!

Here are the highlights~

They are so ZEN when they camp!

 Family walk at dusk and selfie fun!

 Mighty strong :)


These two!

Tree huggers!

 Lots of big trees!!
 Family pic :) (by a big tree)


The biggest stump!


We are trying to be funny but truth be told it was getting dark and we were kinda sorta lost in the woods!!! It started out as a quick evening stroll after dinner and ended up being like a 3 mile hike! We finally got back to the campsite at 9pm! For the record, Will was freaking out thinking a bear was going to eat him!!



The next day we checked out the Stanislaus River


So pretty!


We are so bad at selfies!Look at Sarah's hair! For reals!


After that, we went swimming in a cave! They are SUCH TROOPERS! To get to this cave, we literally hiked nearly a mile in over 10 degree heat. They hardly complained! Then on the way back in was practically all uphill! Even the adults doing the hike were having a hard time (myself included!)


 Hiking in 100 degree heat! She's amazing!!!


The next day we did another hike through the Redwoods...this time it was LIGHT outside and the hike was COOL and FLAT :) I think they were tired because they did complain about this one! HA!


Check out this tree!

On the trail!


Hi!!


 Look at Brookey! Not happy :) HA!


I promise I never, ever tell he to pose like this!


They had such a great time!!! Maybe we can get in one last camping trip in before the summer is officially over,but with soccer starting it will be tough!
