To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter; to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird’s nest or a wildflower in spring — these are some of the rewards of the simple life. ~John Burroughs
Just living the simple life. And loving every sweet moment!
As you saw in my last post, I’m moving out of my comfort zone and going for my first triathlon. I forgot to mention that Little Man will also be competing in the kids version on the same day. So this morning we went biking and running together in an effort to get him ready. It was so much fun! We both had a blast. Perhaps we’ve found a new mother-son bonding activity….
Here we are, all sweaty and feeling good after our bike/run workout. Here’s to trying new things!
I spent my Mother’s Day weekend doing three of my most favorite things. Saturday morning I ran in a trail race (and finished 1st place in my age/gender division, yippeee!), I hiked alongside my family to a beautiful waterfall and enjoyed an evening of indoor rock climbing as well. It was great! Although it was a far from perfect weekend in many ways (my special needs son had many, many struggles and hard moments), it was imperfectly perfect to me. I hope all you mamas out there got to celebrate doing something you loved.
And unfortunately I didn’t bring my good camera, so I’ll bore you with cell phone photos instead.
I’ve never won first place before, so of course I had to wake up the babe and make the kids pose with me! The hike to Ozone Falls is short but the views are spectacular. Definitely a family favorite!
I promise I’m going to pick up the blog again. Really and truly this time!
