Poor Blog!

It seems I've gone a whole week with no blog update!  So sorry about that, we've had a lot going on in our world.  The main thing that has caused a drastic reduction in my blogging time is a new initiative we've had to get healthier since June.  We bought a treadmill and I have been using the babies' one nap time a day to workout.  Ordinarily I used their nap time to update the blog, do laundry/household chores, eat lunch, surf the internet, catch up on the phone with family members, etc. but now the whole nap time is pretty much taken up by working out and trying to eat lunch before they wake up.  I am not complaining though, our whole family has been getting healthier and Chad and I have seen some weight loss success so far, and we are really excited to keep it going.

We have also joined a gym as a family.  Chad has been enjoying playing racquetball and basketball at different local gyms with some of his coworkers, and that led us to explore a family membership to the gym so he could go do these things on a more regular basis.  We are trying it out for a month to see if we'll use it, but so far it has been great.   

Today was a big first step for me, I took the kids after breakfast and put them in the gym daycare so I could workout.  I was so nervous to leave them alone there, since they'd never been left in a multi-child daycare setting (with people I didn't know) before, but they did great!  They seemed to have a blast playing with all the "new" toys.  The ladies at the daycare said they were good the whole time and when I came to get them they were busily playing with toys.  It made my heart so happy to see that they were happy.  

This also meant I didn't have to wait until their nap time to workout, since they were being watched at the daycare.  They were very ready for their nap when we got home, so they are napping now.  Since I've already done my workout for the day, I have this free time to update the blog, yay!  

Anyhow, I apologize for the recent neglect of the blog, the new arrangement at the gym daycare hopefully means that I can go a couple of times a week and free up nap time to update the blog again from time to time!  

I don't have too many new pictures of the kids, but I do have some pictures to share of some outfits.  I am hoping to have some pictures taken of them and of all of us as a family sometime in August or September for their 18 month pictures and also to celebrate our 5 year anniversary.  I've already picked out their outfits and I think they are going to be cute!  I think the family is going to be dressed in some variation of red, white, and blue for the pictures so here are a few things I have picked out for the photo shoot:  

Chloe's dress (front)
Chloe's dress (back)
Chloe and Brady's First Pair of Chucks!
Chloe's Headband Flower Bow!  

So I am just a little excited, can you tell?  I don't think we've ever taken professional pictures together as a whole family before.  We normally only take pictures of the kids.  

I hope you are all having a good week so far!
