4th of July Weekend

Yeah I know, 4th of July weekend was a whole week ago, but it is what it is right?

We headed up to the lake on Thursday afternoon and we had a wonderful time! My grandparents had just gotten there when we got there.  My parents and my brothers and sister in law got there the next day.  My Aunt and Uncle and cousins were there as well. 

I just love going to the lake.  It is so peaceful and beautiful there.  Even though we have tv and cell phone coverage (kind of) and WiFi there, we spent almost all of our time outside either playing bags, walking around town, or just hanging out on the porch. 

Maggie had a great time too.  She slept very well the whole time until the last night.  She slept right through the fireworks even though I was sure she would wake up.  She went on the boat a couple times and loved it, even with her life jacket on.  We went swimming in the lake and she loved that too. 

I ran 5 miles on Saturday morning.  I was planning on doing 6 miles, but I didn't go early enough and it was super super hot.  I inhaled a bug right around 5 miles and decided that I would just be done right then! Yuck!!! Dave and I ran together on Monday and it was hot and really humid.  I ended up running 3.5 even though I felt like I was dying the whole time.   I think it was a combination of too many cheesy potatoes the night before and the fact that I had drank more beer than water every day of the weekend.  Oops! 

This week has been HOT AND HUMID.  Today was the first day that the humidity was less than 95%.  Yuck!  I can't wait until fall!!!!

    Ugh for swallowing a bug...this humidity is definitely a challenge! Good job getting out there anyways.
