This one time we got up very early to watch a mass launch of hot air balloons.  If I remember correctly they called it a hot air balloon rodeo.  Except?  It was really cold and at times even rainy.  Turns out that is NOT good weather for launching hot air balloons.  This meant that we saw the launch of 3, maybe 4, balloons (but, hey! who's counting?!).  Anyway, not exactly a rodeo of balloons.  This early morning-rise was not lost on us, however.  We did get to pay $7.50 to park our car and walk half a mile on muddy ground to meet a random mascot of who-knows-what which may or may not have made Ava's day.  Aaaand I'm pretty sure Lily took more pictures of our excursion than her mama did.  See?  We are not ones to let those golden opportunities get away from us.

Strangers often mistake these two for siblings when, in fact, they are the sweetest cousins with the sweetest friendship.  
Only question is ... WHY do they have to live so far away??

I think we crammed a whole year's worth of adventure into the last two weeks ... good and bad.  I found these two passed out and curled up together on the floor next to my bed in the morning after we returned from vacation.  As you can see, we're doing our best to catch up on sleep around here ... apparently, wherever we can find it.

My life as of late:
Run.  Coffee.  Bike.  Coffee.  Swim.  Coffee.  Repeat.
I'm training for my first open-water swim triathlon and it's wearing me out ... where would I be without artificial stimulants?!  The tri training along with summer schedules and traveling and family health issues and numerous other things I've chosen not to mention ... well?  It's pretty much gotten the best of me this week so I'm taking a little break.  You know?  For sanity's sake?  Here's hoping you get to take one this week, too.  Happy Summer y'all!
