Fun In The Overcast-ness

We had quite a fun family day yesterday! The girls and I really needed that time with Cory. First up, Lagoon-a-Beach. (Humor me with all the pics, there's a ton in this post)
Since Daddy got to come this time we were able to rent tubes and hang out in the lazy river. Brynlie and I laid back and relaxed, Kennedy and Cory were about as wild as they could be and annoyed the crap out of us ;). The smile across K's face the whole time she was floating around with her Daddy made my heart swell, though. She was in heaven. 
After a few laps around the river we took a lunch break 
Her face when she says "cheese" is always an unexpected surprise when I go through my pics. I love it!! Also, she looks really tall, no?
While we were eating it dawned on us that Cory has the Samsung Galaxy S7, which is water resistant. So we headed to the pool to test it out and get some more pictures! Kennedy didn't want to participate. 
It takes pretty great underwater pictures! It was fun! I would have opened my eyes if I wasn't super grossed out by that. 
We tried to get B to do some cute stuff but she just floated there and froze. The water is pretty dang cold. Especially when it's overcast. 
But a cold toddler means I get awesome snuggles!!
The kids wore out after a while and we decided to leave and go to Costco and buy a couple cool things everyone else had at Lagoon that we were coveting, like these super awesome float tubes:
(Two pack, $19.99) the center is a mesh net so the girls can ride on it by themselves and not slip through the middle. They're going to be so fun at Bear Lake and such this summer. And apparently Lagoon lets you take them on the lazy river. Rad! 

We also searched high and low for one of these bad boys. 

The employee told us all costco's in the valley have sold out of them, so we ordered ours online. I am beyond excited!!! It'll make taking the kids places on my own so much easier! 

The thing I don't like about Costco, besides being suckered into buying stuff and the rude people is that you HAVE to get it while it's there because it could be gone tomorrow. So that's why we high tailed it there. Anyway, moving on... 

After Costco we went home and took showers and got dressed so we could go see more Parade of Home's houses. 
Then we went to dinner at Johnny Rockets in Farmington. I have to report that both girls ate more than half their hamburgers. That's never happened! And Brynlie is now dipping her fries into a startling amount of ketchup and actually eating the French fry! She no longer just sucks off the ketchup and dips it back in. It was amazing. 

Literally seconds after we got in the car a crazy big wind storm kicked up. It was so dusty you could hardly see a thing!
I kind of love crazy stuff like that once in a while. 

We had a great time. Maybe even too much of a great time, because I missed Cory like CRAZY today while he was at work. And B kept asking where Daddy was all morning. 

This morning was spent at Wheeler Farm with our friends! 
Oh big, fat pig, I can relate so much to your life right now haha 
The Ducks were their favorite thing. Go figure. I think the fear of being pecked by one outweighs their cuteness for me...
We rode the wagon
And just had a really great day. I have to take a second and thank this amazing lady for being such a great friend to me lately and always. I try so hard to not complain about my body giving me crap at home because I don't want my girls to hear me, so she's gotten the brunt of it and has been so supportive! I love her like a sister. Also, I text her about literally EVERYTHING. We're cool like that. 

Ok, a few more pics to get through. 

After Wheeler Farm we came home and I got in 6 easy miles on the tready. 5@10:00 min mile and 1@ 9:00 because I have a really hard time with easy runs being so slow... I need to get over that because slow, easy runs are crucial. It's pretty humid today and cloudy again so the house was pretty hot and I was super wet and slippery basically everywhere afterward. 
So far things are feeling ok but I haven't tested out a run on the road yet. I also haven't done a long run in a while, so I'm not really sure what I should tackle Saturday morning. I guess we will see! 

And lastly I'll leave you with the most beautiful picture ever. See you soon!
