I've never been the brightest crayon in the box but if there is one thing I have learned since my brother passed away and as I get older it is to cherish and enjoy every single moment of life!
As the title reads I've been really busy the past two weeks having fun with my family and friends and just genuinely living life to the fullest. Rather than thinking about or anticipating "whats next" I've just taken some time to disconnect, relax, and live in the moment! Sometimes having kids around is the best medicine for adults and I have been so incredibly lucky to have my cousin Dillon staying with me the past two weeks. This amazing kid continues to teach me through his example, strength, attitude, and love of life. I will forever be grateful to have him in life and to be able to learn from him each day.
The activities were honestly endless and awesome and I am so thankful for the time I was able to spend with Dillon and my family. We visited the aquarium.
Went and saw the Movie Brave and rode on the Train at the mall.
Made several trips to the Track to practice our running and multiple trips to Salem Ponds to walk along the lake, feed the ducks, and play at the play ground.
We celebrated the 4th of July in style by running the races in Eureka and spending the day with my grandparents.
We went to a Bee's game and had so much fun meeting Bumble and walking around the park.
Made a trip the the Dinosaur museum and enjoyed the most amazing Ice cream cones ever at Thanksgiving Point.
And finished the party with a great big Family Reunion as the finale!
I know that I say this in like every other post but it is worth mentioning again that my family freaking rocks! Although Summer is flying by way too fast for my liking I have really, really enjoyed it so far. So many awesome moments and I am really looking forward to continuing to create some awesome memories. I am so incredibly fortunate to be surrounded by such amazing friends and family.
I hope you are having an amazing Summer too and that you are taking some time to embrace and enjoy every moment.
