Poor Museum had finally seen his last days. We went car shopping determined to come home with a new-to-us car. We found the perfect one. A 2012 Dodge Journey. The kids were soooooo excited too. And I FINALLY have a car with an auxiliary jack!

We picked Macy up from camp today. She of course had a blast and was sad to say goodbye to her friends and counselors. She did miss Mackenzie and Noah. They were all so excited to see each other. As always she was completely pooped out and fell asleep about 5 minutes from camp. Love Camp Classen!

I am proud to say that today I moved up to the big weights for squats at the gym. I probably could have sooner but for some reason it intimidated me. We have a lot of *really* strong girls at our gym and they motivated me to suck it up and lift the heavy weights. Grrrrr!

We joke that Mackenzie's default state is a sloth. The girl can bum out like no one I have ever seen. She can plant herself on a couch and not get out of her PJ's, comb her hair or really do anything besides sit and watch tv for an entire day. I don't like the kids watching very much tv but I do like to occasionally indulge her inner sloth. It makes her happy.

Since me and Jason finished the Whole30 we have pretty much stuck with eating paleo. I absolutely love it. We both feel better and we actually enjoy it since we both love to cook and trying new recipes. Meals actually seem more simple but more delicious at the same time if that's possible. I love trying new recipes so I have found similar things for almost all the foods I missed (noatmeal anyone??). But... My all time favorite dessert ever is brownies. I could not say goodbye to brownies forever. Well I don't have to. Hello paleo brownie bites! I actually had several recipes I wanted to try but this first one was so good I don't know if I will. It got thumbs up from both kids that tried them. Yay!

We have been having serious fridge space issues. We buy so much produce now and eat so many leftovers and cook for so many functions/dinner guests I CAN.NOT.FIT. it all in my fridge. We have yet to find a reasonable one anywhere.

Jason has been feeling very crafty lately and making all kinds I fun things. This weekend, it was a fire pit in the backyard. We roasted weenies and roasted marshmallows. As you can see the kids loved it, especially Noah. Marshmallows everywhere! We joke that Macy is so my kid and Noah is Jason's. Noah ate like 2 marshmallows and was done. Kenzie ate about 6. Anndddddd Macy ate pretty much the rest of the bag. That's my girl.

Well we made it. Me and Jason went 30 days eating no grains, dairy, sweeteners or soy. At first it seemed hard but by the end we felt so much better and have really gotten used to eating this way. I know there are a few things we will add back but for the most part we will probably stick to this.
