I just had one of the hardest workouts in months and tomorrow is not going to be pretty but damn I feel good. Today was pretty insane with Olive and I just needed to get out and away and kickboxing was perfect. As soon as Blake walked in from work I was out the door. Some days that just needs to happen. We had a wonderful day with Kat and Sonia and the Natural History Museum. Such an amazing place and the kids loved it or they loved running around. Either way they were happy. Olive was WILD and loud and her and Sonia just roamed around checking out all the critters and touching everything. They crawled on the floor, they made loud noises, and they stopped for lots of hugs. It was the cutest. It was exhausting but fun. I thought when we got home she would pass out but she refused to take her nap. I depend on her nap for my sanity. The 2 hours or whatever it is she sleeps totally revives me and I feel like I'm a much better mom. It doesn't matter if I'm doing laundry or lounging on the couch the alone time is great and when I don't get that we both suffer. I let her play with my ipad while I lounged, not the best mom move but you do what you have to do. We played for a bit then I made some dinner. She helped for half the time then decided she would play by herself. Usually she is really good and I check on her like every 2 minutes but somehow in that time she managed to draw all over the wall in her playroom. She even came in the kitchen and asked for the sponge for her mess. I didn't think anything of it as she does that all the time and usually just likes to wipe everything down. I didn't realize the mess was the wall. Errrr. Thank goodness for Resolve. I swear I keep that company in business. 
So many photos as usual........
