June Wrap Up

Ah.... June. Summer finally came to New England!! I guess this is when it's supposed to show up but after being in the south a few years I expected it in March :) I celebrated summer arriving by.... Flying to Georgia! Where it was waaay more humid and hot! I loved it. So did the little man, who had his 4 month birthday this month! At nearly five months now we are getting about an 8 hour stretch of sleep at night, finally. Hallelujah. 

So the real reason for our Georgia trip was a birthday party for my good friend Wendy. She was my drinkin' buddy from my pre-kid days and I was a little worried I wouldn't be able to keep up anymore. I hadn't had a good Redbull and Jager (our drink of choice) in well over a year. I paced myself, only had two drinks (sad, I know) and outlasted the birthday girl. Guess that's what happens when you  turn 40 ;)

As a former swimmer, lifeguard, and swim instructor I've been dying to get Benji in the water! Our Georgia trip gave us the opportunity to visit both the pool and the ocean. The pool went very well!

He thoroughly enjoyed his first outdoor nap under the trees as well after a good swim.

The ocean looked cool but he wasn't thrilled when it actually touched him, despite the fact it was pretty warm. He had a bunch of scratches on his legs from his sharp little finger nails and I'm wondering if the salt water burned a bit. And yes, that wookie behind him belongs to me. 

I've signed up for a fun 5k at the end of September with a bunch of Navy ladies. I am very excited but I really need to get to work on the C25K. Because no, I can't actually run a 5k right now. I started week 4 today and failed miserably. Anybody else on the C25K journey?

So we have less than five months until our next move. Do we know where we are going yet? Of course not! I think there are somewhere around 8 possibilities right now. Yes, it's extremely frustrating. The hubs also has a summer break this year which means he's at home Every. Single. Day for the next 6 weeks or so. I'm thrilled for him. He deserves this nice little break. However, I might kill him being stuck with him that much! We've got some travel plans, though, and I'm really excited about them. I'll keep you all posted!
