I kinda feel like I need another weekend to rest from the weekend.

Ever feel that way??

Sometimes Henry will wake up for the day and come and say to me –“This is a BIG day today, Mom.  A big, BIG day.”  The day might not hold anything spectacular but he craves those “BIG” days of excitement.  I’m afraid I disappoint him 95% of the time.  Smile  Anyway, we had a BIG weekend – Clara turned 4!  Saturday we had her party and another birthday party to attend, we went to a special breakfast, had birthday pedicures, and made everything Clara-themed.  The weekend slipped by in an instant and now I’m wondering how on earth it’s already Monday!?!

Here’s everything I caught on my phone from Friday through Sunday – not a lot – I tried to stay present as much as possible!  Enjoy!

^^Muscle Ropes sent me these battle ropes to review.  We used them Friday & Saturday during Track Stars – a great training tool!^^

^^I talked Travis into something.  Stay tuned….^^

^^Mom watched the kids while we had a date at the track (we’re training for an upcoming mud run!).  We did this workout and again, it whooped my butt.^^

^^Our best “Arnold”…except it’s all wrong and we have no idea what we’re doing.  Birds of a feather.^^

^^I order this pretty much every Saturday morning: eggs, bacon and tomatoes.  Salt goes on everything.  Coffee on the side.^^

^^Part of her “birsday” present:  a trip to the salon.  She’s all girl and loves getting her nails painted.  After much debate (probably 7 minutes worth), she chose silver glitter.^^

^^For almost 6 years now, we’ve had a cupcake bar at our parties.  I can’t take any credit – Katy does all the baking.  She makes bottoms and icing and then we just let the kids go to town, decorating their own cupcake.  Always a hit!  Katy also made Clara her very own heart-shaped cake you saw above!!^^

^^I’ve been eating ice cream like it’s going out of style.  But that’s impossible – ice cream will always be stylish.^^

^^A friend sold us this table seat for Porter and he LOVES it!  We just don’t have room in our kitchen for a high chair plus the Bumbo was just way too small for his thighs.  Here’s the one we got.^^

^^Planning out September and we’ve already got a few too many activities for my liking.^^

    Loving all the photos! Happy Birthday to that cute Clara girl. I love that photo of her in the chair getting her toes done – adorable! I bet she thought that was the best thing ever. And her cake turned out incredible! As for your ice cream bowls … lovin’ it. Ice cream all day every day. ;)

    We donated our last greenhouse (our home came with 3 when we bought it last year) and finished dismantling the fire pit (we’ll rebuild it safer next summer). I got in a long swim, and learned that exhaustion plus long swim plus 26 weeks preg= massive hunger attack.

    We also started planning a possible get away before Daughter 2 arrives. We’re thinking further north on the Olympic Peninsula.
