Barefoot by the Sea: Fulfilled!

Fulfilled!

We were blessed with a beautiful weekend here on the East Coast!  Plenty of sun and warmer weather.  Perfect for sprinklers and ice pops.  Seriously the most perfect weekend I can remember in a long, long time!  We took full advantage, with the perfect mix of relaxation, family and fun.

Riley completed her Girls on the Run 5k and did incredibly!  We are so proud of her!  She finished within the top 25 out of about 1,000 runners and it's clear to see she has a natural ability!  Her coach (Dad) was far behind but there to cheer her on and make sure she stayed on track!  Tomorrow she'll run her next 5k and is looking forward to it.  Girls on the Run, for those who aren't familiar is an amazing program that reinforces positive messages and confidence for girls.  I would highly recommend the program.  Riley is hoping to participate in the Fall as well and has had a wonderful, positive experience with this program!  The 5k celebration was complete with face painting, music and plenty of healthy snacks to enjoy after the race.  Sydney also had a blast and made several friends while playing and dancing in the misting fan.  It was a wonderful way to spend a beautiful morning! 

After the race, we met my Mom to celebrate her birthday and delicious lunch and nice walk .  The afternoon was spent cleaning and organizing our garage - something that had been a long time coming but so worth the effort.  It's so nice to have more space!  Organization makes me happy!!!!

The rest of the weekend was spent gardening, playing in the sprinkler and doing our fair share of sidewalk chalk.  We wrapped it up with a delicious cookout. 

I'm heading to bed today sleepy and feeling fulfilled.  Hoping next weekend will be as wonderful as this one was, sometimes it's JUST what the doctor ordered! 

Cheers to the new week!

  2. Getting your garage organized is making me get up off my boot-A, and clean and organize my shelving right here next to my computer! Thanks for the push! Sounded like a great weekend. We really enjoyed the beautiful sunny (but hot) weather here too! Now, I am standing up RIGHT THIS MINUTE to do my shelves!

  3. Hello Jessica! So glad you had a wonderful weekend with great weather. You deserve it! My garage is a chronic mess and I may never get ahead of it. But when all is in its place, it really is a lot better. I hope your mom had a great birthday.

    1. It happens to the best of us Stacy! I'm sure within a couple of weeks ours will look like a battle zone again too!
