Mwah! My Sweet Babies!

Wow, the summer has FLOWN by! I wish I had kept up with our blog better, but we have definitely been staying busy. Most week days our morning starts with breakfast for Ava, nurse Lucas, throw on my gym clothes, grab a granola bar and we are out the door headed to the YMCA. My friend Lauri used to go practically every day and would plan her activities around her time at the YMCA, which I never fully understood until now! It's because going to the Y is the one time during the day where I am pretty much guaranteed at least an hour to use my brain and energy almost completely for myself! I LOVE IT! (sounds selfish, but let me explain!) I love knowing that my little ones are having fun and being loved on in the nursery while I get to exercise for an hour and if the sun is out, I even have been laying out by the pool for an hour! It's so crazy! At first I felt uneasy about leaving them in the nursery 3-4 mornings a week, but then I realized that this workout time was helping me be a better mom as I have had more energy to give to them-not to mention that it helps my brain function on a slightly higher level- I think! hahaha!
Our evenings are spent hanging out with our friends for dinner or game nights or simply just together at home. We have enjoyed grilling out by the pool which I will definitely miss once it gets too cold. Ava LOVES swimming and Lucas and I are great on-lookers as Ava and Daddy show us how they swim together :)

While at my grandparent's lakehouse, my grandma taught Ava how to fish...Ava had great technique! hehehe!

We are still Alive!

Hahaha, man, I have been trying so hard to update our blog with what we have been up to...but it always seems to be past 10pm when I finally have a chance to sit down and actually use my brain to type something up...but by then (like right now) I am too tired...so I will try again tomorrow! In the meantime, here are a few pics from our lakehouse trip last month.
