Twinsie Playdate

I’ve been getting together with a lot of my twin mom friends lately. There is nothing like getting together with a bunch of ladies who know EXACTLY what type of hell you are currently going through. It’s like therapy…truly.

Last Saturday we all met up at a friends house to go for a long walk together. I wanted to share a few photos of that beautiful morning.

Claire and Cooper had so much fun. There were 4 sets of twins. Two were identical boys and two were boy/girl twins. Identical twins are definitely a rarity in these parts. I admitted to my friends I would be referring to all 4 of their boys as “buddy” from here on out. There is really no hope for me. I can barely get the names straight of two kids who look nothing alike.

The other set of boy/girl twins.


A good picture of BOTH my kids, that’s a freakin miracle!


I wanted to get a picture of all the kids but this was the best I could get with six 1-2 year olds that were running in every direction.


At the start of the walk we went by this park shortly and my kids started freaking out when we passed it. We turned around and let the kids play awhile before we loaded them back up. It was such a fun day. I’m so lucky to be part of such a phenomenal group of woman.

As a side note, this was the day I ended up pulling a muscle in my left quad. It went away by Monday luckily!



Last Monday I literally decided to get off the couch and start running. I don’t know exactly where my motivation came from. Perhaps I’m just tired of being tired.

I had been thinking about doing this training program called Couch to 5k for quite some time and finally Monday I started on it. The first week only has three days of training. So I ran on Monday and Wednesday. I wasn’t able to do Day 3 until yesterday…when it was 100 degrees outside. Yeaaaahhhhh. Luckily I’ve been having so much fun with this program that I ran anyways!

Unfortunately I didn’t drink nearly enough water. After my run I came down with the worst headache ever. It was awful. I guess learning to run involves more then just feet on the pavement. I hope to learn from this experience.
