Currently – July

by Chelsea Myers on July 6, 2016

And hot hot hot hot hot.  A few pictures from the Independence Day, also known at our house was Watermelon Day, festivities.



I ran a 5k earlier in the morning and we took the boys back out to play on the inflatable slides (S loved it, W just wanted to jump on the bottom part which would have been okay except he was at constant risk of being trampled by big kids).  We saw a few classic cars and had to point out which one was ‘Mater, Lightning McQueen, Sally, etc. before we called it a day.  We didn’t try to watch the fireworks (though a neighbor gave us a good tip for next year), but heard them three nights in a row.


Daniel and I took a 5-day trip to New England during the middle of June.  We started in Burlington (and probably would have planned to stay there all 5 days had we known how much there was to see), drove to Maine, spent some time in Maine, and flew out of a tiny airport in southern New Hampshire.

At the B+J factory outside Burlington.  Sweet potato pie seemed destined for the flavor graveyard.



Just finished- The Storied Life of A. J. Fickry, No One Knows, Everything I Never Told You, Devil in the White City, and Thunderstruck

Currently – Reading The Big Short by Michael Lewis and Listening to Dragonfly in Amber (it’s long!)

Coming up – Maybe some more Michael Lewis or Erik Larson.  I feel like I’m on a big of a nonfiction kick.


Scott and Will are very into The Little Mermaid

Working on:

Keeping up with my summer class and doing a little writing for myself.  I’d also like to try to put together our family scrapbook from 2015 this month.


Is so so so hot, but going pretty well.  I’m enjoying doing my long run with a group and have gotten a lot of good advice about what marathon I might like to do this fall.  I’m thinking maybe Jacksonville in mid-December before the holidays.  That way I’d have a back-up in January (Celebration) and a double back up 1/2 marathon (OUC) if things don’t pan out.


Mr. Ray, Mr. Ray!

This time last year:

Scott was transitioning to his big boy bed.  Will was… OMG.

Two years ago, we took Scott to a family wedding.  It was a pants-optional Tennessee family wedding 😉

Three years ago, Scott had his first swim in a kiddie pool.

Four years ago, it was way too hot in Wisconsin.
