10 years from now......

Wow. This is a hard post.

10 years from now I have no real idea where I will be! Just an impression of where things might go if we stay where we are now. 

I mean, as a mom in my 30's with two kids I don't exactly dream of the future like I did when I was in college. Right now we are in the center of the 


"Potty Training Allee Universe"

and 
preparing Elena  for 4th grade

Summer vacation is great because I can do some decompressing and reading. I notice that during the school year I don't read as much as I would like to. Now that it's summer I can finally indulge in some good books. 



So yeah... back to "10 years from now..."

This is REALLY going to take some serious thought. 

Well, the obvious thing is that I will be 43 years old. My girls will be 19 and 13 1/2. 

So.... presumably Elena will be in college & will likely be living on campus or home for the summer after her 1st year of school. Allee will be 13. If she is anything like now we'd better BUCKLE UP! I am guessing she will have some tough teen years to parent.


Hmmmm.... Jonathan and I will be celebrating out 22nd wedding anniversary about this time too. How cool!

What else? I mean, we will still have a child at home so it's not like we will have much by way of traveling planned. Other than local family visits that is. 

Hmmm... I honestly have no clue what else to write. I have no idea what the next 10 years will bring. Yep. I will just wait and see. 

Hoping that you are well,

Fun weekends!

Last weekend our church went on a trip and experienced some pretty stellar sights! We traveled to Kentucky for the 2nd time to visit the Creation Museum
It is just so amazing!! 

When we visited in May of 2014 my girls were so much smaller!  (Elena on the left was almost 7)
(Here is Allee with my father in law. She was about 1 and 1/2 yrs old)
Here we are in 2004
Here we are this weekend!
They also hadn't started construction on their new exhibit The Ark Encounter. It opened last year and we finally got to see it! WOWZA! It was incredible!
The BEST part was that my father in law always flies up to WV to be with us on these trips! Here are a few pictures of our trip! I posted a ton of Snaps too. Too bad they don't last longer than 24 hours. 
We took 38 people from our church!
I was in the fun bus. These were the most active and excited little girls. 
Allee stayed with her grandpa the WHOLE trip. They were two peas in a pod.
My main squeeze with a new little friend. The penguin looks like …

Week 11 Day 1

This morning I woke up after having Allee keep me up for almost 2 hours during the night. Needless to say I was completely exhausted this morning.

I lacked motivation to get to the gym. Instead of leaving with my gym clothes on to take Elena to school I just drove her in my PJs. Yep. Was totally too lazy to even get dressed.

I finally did come back home and got dressed, but honestly, what was I thinking?! Allee was awake which meant I didn't leave until 9:00 a.m.

Fail.
Its ok, I wound up having a great workout anyway. My video from after it is below.

Oh Chicago, How I love you!

I absolutely loved Chicago!!! We stayed in Pinegree Grove which is a suburb about an hour outside of the city, but we spent most of our time in the downtown area. We arrived on Sunday night and relaxed with dinner and some games. Allee even got some of the girls to play Barbies with her





I finally got to watch Rouge One with our host which was right up my alley! Monday went on the Big Bus Tours and got to see every single building in the city!  Listening to our tour guides describe different key points about the city made it so much more exciting than just driving by the buildings would have been. We also wandered through Millenium Park and I got to have a Chicago Style hot dog! I visited The Bean, Crown Fountain, Lurie Garden, Jay Pritzker Pavillion and walked through a bit more of Grant Park.

















I also got to visit The Field Museum of Natural History and it was awesome! We were going to go to the Art Institute of Chicago, but we changed our minds once we walked into the lobby and saw th…
