Back At It Again

It has been a long time since my last entry. There really are no other excuses other then life happens and that sometimes breaks are a must. That does not mean that I am not ever coming back. It just means that my time was spent on more important things like my kids and family.

There last entry I posted was in February and so many things have happened since then. Let me take a second and update you.

K-Dub is getting big. I sometimes cannot believe she is five cause I swear in the last few months she has hit a growth spurt. She looks more like she is 7. In my last update I told you she was starting dance. She has since had her first ever recital and loves it. We have plans for her to re-enroll in the fall.

Speaking of enrollment… K-Dub is starting Kindergarten in less then three weeks! Where did the time go? We were very lucky she got accepted at one of the local charter schools near where we live. She is excited and this weekend I am going to start gathering her school supplies while BrittWhitFun gets her school uniforms. I just can’t believe that we are finally at this moment and it makes me sad and joyful.

Evie is a force of nature. She has been getting big also. She has really come around on the loving Dad front and now she never wants to leave my side unless Mom is around. She has been really trying to grasp this whole potty training thing. She has #1 down by #2 has been a really struggle for not only her but for Mom and Dad. I may have stepped on poop while putting her on the potty. It just kind of rolled out of her underwear. Sorry. I hope you were not eating when you read this.

We have tried to transition Evie from her crib to toddler bed but it was a disaster so we decided to keep the crib a little longer. She is just not ready and until she is fully potty trained she really needs to stay in her crib.

Here are some of the other highlights of the past few months:

My SIL got married back in April. 

K-Dub learned to swim

My brother and I could not be better

My brother dressed like a lady for charity

I decided to take on swimming

Easter was a lot of fun.

We went to the Zoo

I won Coordinator of the Quarter

Had a great Mother’s Day Mingle At The Mint Event

Got a Vasectomy and my wisdom teeth out in the same month

K-Dub graduated from Preschool

BrittWhitFun and I celebrated 7 years of marriage

I tried float therapy and like it and did not drown

I did a build for Habitat for Humanity

Enjoyed 4th of July with friends

What is next for the family? We have a lot of things coming up. K-Dub starting school, Evie is turning 3 and we are heading back to Disney World in less then 90 days and I am not even close to being ready!

As always comments are appreciated and I can’t wait to here from you.

Disney Mug Tuesday- Fairy Godmother Mug

This weeks mug shows off my family’s love for the movie Cinderella. My daughter is obsessed with this movie and when we went to Disney we met Cinderella three times cause my daughter just could not get enough and we even had dinner in Cinderella’s castle.

I got this mug for my wife to remind her that things take time and not everything happens when you want them to. We start renovating the house and making upgrades and things we all over the place. She picked it up this past weekend and said it was a great reminder.

We still enjoyed meeting Cinderella and her stepsisters. I hope next time we can meet the Fairy Godmother herself.

Disney Mug Tuesday- Pluto Mug

If you read yesterday’s blog then you know that I just finished the Disney Virtual Race Series for 2017 and I am thrilled to have done it. Yes, it was only three 5k races and I have ran a marathon but it was nice to run a race at my pace to get me warmed up for my fall races I have coming up.

The best part about these races are that they were Pluto themed. Each month you got a piece of Pluto and if you signed up for all three races you got the medal with Pluto on it. Everyone knows I am a Disney freak ever since going to Disney World for the first time back in March.

To go along with my favorite Disney dog I got this mug and I have to say it has become one of my favorite ones. It holds a lot of coffee first and foremost and it is also really easy to drink out of thanks to the lip on the rim.

When I use this mug I think of meeting Pluto and how happy my kids were to meet him.

#MedalMonday- Disney Virtual Race- August

We have not had a medal Monday Monday in a while and I completed my virtual race for August! I have to say this was a fun event and I managed to get the August medal and the medal for completing all three races. So now that this series of races are over I have a lot of great things happening in the fall that I am super excited about. I even got my family involved in some of them.

Here is the August mug

Here is the one for the entire series of three races!

Disney Mug Tuesday- Mickey Mug

This week we are talking about my favorite mouse. I don’t have very many mugs with Mickey on them but I do have. a few. When you go to Disney world your are surrounded by all things Mickey which is great. Some of my favorite memories was meeting this guy in Epcot. The first time you see Mickey at Disney World is very surreal. You see pics and videos of other people but until you are right there beside him and hugging him it is a different ballgame.

As you can see we met Mickey a few times but each time was just as magical. I am so looking forward to seeing this mouse in 2018.

For now I will just drink out of this mug.

Disney Mug Tuesday- Princess Castle Mug

When you are a dad of girls you trade in the obsession of superheros and take up reality that your kids are into everything princess. From crowns and dresses to the shoes and make up, all my girls want to do is be a princess. They are so cute so it is not really that hard for them.

When we were in Disney World we met a lot of princesses. We even had a few meals with some of them. My girls were in awe of them and never knew what to say.

Here are some of the princesses they met.

When I got this cool mug my kids kept fighting over it. So I kept it for myself. Check it out.

 

#MedalMonday- Disney Virtual Race- July

It has been a hot minute since I posted a Medal Monday so I recently completed my time for the July Disney Virtual Race and wanted to share my medal for the month.

This month I really hopped back on the track and treadmill. I have not really ran this hard since the Charlotte Marathon event last November so it has been since to work my distance back up and to get me ready for the races and competitions I have coming in 2018.
