At the end of our street is a big grassy area. Izzie and Maddie like to run "free" in this area.

Photo Catch Up. Rough Riders Game. Water Balloons.
A bit of photo catch up today. Friday I took the girls on a walk down our street. Maddie has entered the age of "I'm SOOOO tired to walk Mommmmma." Of course I found this out several blocks away from home. I told her that her legs are younger than mine and if I could make it back home with my old legs then surely her young ones could get her home. She reluctantly dragged herself home under her own power. But there was NO way I was carrying that 37lb big three year old 4 blocks back to our house. No way was I starting that. Plus with twins, you run into the problem with the other girl thinking that's a cool trick to get Mom to do and I don't even physically think I could carry close to 80 lbs home, and I'd look quite dumb doing it! Luckily Izzie was full of happy energy so she challenged Maddie to several races. "Maddie! I'll race you to the next mailbox!" and "Maddie! I bet I'll beat you to the light post!" We made it home. I think I was more mentally exhausted than of exercise I had hoped to achieve!
