Here's what we've been up to this week!

Splash  pad with some friends:
Baby ruffly bums are so cute

 the splash pad also had a big sand pit. And since my kids didn't even go near the water, it was perfect. (meaning no wet soggy bums sitting in the sand... just dry bums) ((wow... I've already said "bum" three times in this post... this is gonna be a good post I think))
Science experiments:
okay- no experiments. But cute safety goggles were worn
I swear this is the last backpack that I'm making for the next few months. This is a new one that I made for Quinn. The last one that I started and hated... is not going to be finished. :)
Some cut offs... No sewing required with this one. But I very expertly cut them off (and crap -- I couldn't even take 2 seconds to pick that toy up off the floor??!)
I didn't get a great picture of this dress. But it was made from an old tank top of mine. I just shortened the straps and made this whole thing skinnier.
 After church pictures:
As you can see Veda is the only one I talked into a picture, and she was thrilled.
 So I tried to distract her by asking her to count her teeth
 Then the bricks.
 Foot/leg injury:
I'm not quite sure how I hurt myself this time- but my whole right side has been bugging me for a couple of weeks. I actually took TEN days off from running, which is quite a big deal for me. I went to physical therapy like I did last time. Ouch...
 And lots of ice baths
And I got some orthotics. Which meant my running shoes didn't fit anymore- so some running shoe shopping happened. I went with Adidas this time. I've never run in Adidas before (and frankly that brand doesn't scream "real runner' to me) but I run with a lady who swears by them, so I thought I'd give them a shot. I went with the blue pair- but I got them in bright yellow
And my leg is feeling quite a bit better, I even ran a 5k on Saturday. And this week I hope to be back at it all the way. (10 days off was really hard for me.) Plus this week I'm heading to Michigan, so I can maybe talk my dad into running with me ;)

 Crazy 8's:
We have played about 1,000 games of Crazy 8's -- Hendrix's new favorite game
Going away Party:
One of my dear friends moved away this week. So we had a little going away party for her. She's the cute girl standing next to me. She is just awesome (and a fun running buddy). She'll be missed!

 Veda being cute:
always, every day, all day long. This girl is sweet and cute and funny. And talking a LOT lately.

 Hope you all had a good week. Sorry that Instagram is taking over my blogging. At least Kelsey joined Instagram... that helps me feel slightly less guilty about my inconsistent posting lately :)
