We have had a relaxing and fun Spring Break! We didn't go anywhere extravagant but we had fun hanging out with friends every day!
On Monday we met the Brendels and Bishops at the park. The splash pad was also open so all the kids had a blast playing in the water! Shame on me...I didn't take even one picture! I know....what is wrong with me??!!
On Tuesday morning I got some blogging done while drinking my mermaid coffee! Did you read about my last day as a mermaid during Princess weekend? And did you read about the Rock 'n' Roll New Orleans Expo?
After lunch we met the Brendels and Bishops for some froyo! Well....the kids had froyo!
The mommas had Starbucks of course!
After our yummy treats we headed to a different park to play! The kids had another blast!
After the park it was time for dinner. We ate at my favorite chicken finger place with the Brendels!
Wednesday afternoon we met the Brendels for lunch. Then we went to Blakeley State Park to hike! We had so much fun exploring!
We also found the "Hanging Tree" in the old town! Yikes! And yes...the song from the Hunger Games started playing in my head lol!
It was a fun afternoon involving my favorite element....exercise!!!
For dinner we met Andy at Chicken Salad Chick. He needed to work a little late so wanted to eat dinner with us. After dinner the boys and I went to Petco to look around. Cullen needs a new scratching post because he has scratched his to pieces! We always love looking at all the critters. And this snake was creepy! He was trying his hardest to escape!
Thursday morning after my run I took a nice long walk. The rain was coming in later that day and I wanted to soak up as much sunshine as I could.
Now it's time for Fitness Friday! I LOVED getting to run in the daylight all week long! It's going to be hard to go back to early, dark mornings next week.

It was a great week of runs! As I mentioned above, I loved running in the daylight! I am definitely longing for summer now!!!
I'm no longer training for any races. There is one 10K at the end of April that I haven't made up my mind yet whether or not I'm running. But for now I'm just running to run. I'm going to try to get in a 5-6 mile run this weekend if I can. But it's nice to not have the pressure of training!
Happy weekend y'all!
