Ten on Tuesday

1. Summer needs to slow down a bit. July 4th is this weekend. It's all down hill from there.

2. I've been inspired once more to get back into shape. Meaning feeling strong and not completely saggy. A friend of mine just ran a marathon; she looks fabulous. Another friend of mine just went to Hawaii; she looked awesome in her swimming suit. I was quite jealous of her ripped arms. They are both around my age so I know it's doable.

3. In fact I know it's doable since 2 summers ago I was there. I felt great. I felt strong. I went on a baking spree and the rest is history.

4. So I have been jumping on the trampoline with my kids almost daily. It's been fun. I've thrown in a little back handspring here and there. I wish I knew someone who could spot me on a back tuck. I know if I threw a tuck a few times with a spotter I could then do it on my own. I'm just to chicken to try solo.

5. My goal by forty which is looming around the corner is to check off something on my bucket list. That something is trapeze lessons. I have always wanted to learn. Couple years ago I learned that Chicago had a place that provides trapeze lessons, and while researching I discovered that my home town of Tulsa provided trapeze lessons. Next summer I will do it with my strong self.

5. This morning has been filled with marshmallow wars with home made marshmallow air guns, laundry, crafts, trampoline jumping and my kids are now wanting to play on the slip-n-slide. Ahh summer, it is going too fast.

6. I just love garden fresh fruits and vegetables. This morning I picked blueberries, snow peas, and green beans. Yum!

7. If you have time and are interested in a good blog read, head on over to Coal Creek Farms. She is another Pioneer Woman in the making. She has been retelling her birthday surprise adventure that her sweet husband did for her on her 41st birthday. I started reading midway and now I am chomping at the bits to read to next saga. Check her out here.

8. If you are in the Lawrence area and are wanting beautifully custom made jewelry head over to my girlfriend's store that is just opening. Hip Mom Jewelry is at 10 E 9th Ste E, right next to Dr. Hay & Dr. Heinbach in downtown Lawrence.

9. I took some 4th of July pictures of my kiddos yesterday. Here they are.

10. I try to take monthly pictures of my kids for the yearly calendar that I make for my husband for Christmas. I'm sure these pics will be in next years calendar.

Ten on Tuesday

1. Summer break is in full force here at the Klamm household.

2. We just returned from the free movies at the Legends. Despicable Me is quite entertaining.

3. My goals this summer is to read more, my kids and I, have friends over weekly, and spend a majority of our time near water.

4. So far our goals are being met. We've been to the pool three times so far and water play in our backyard is quite a hit.

5. My son had a Mario birthday party on Sunday. I can't believe he is 8. It seems like the parties get easier and easier.

6. His gift from us was a trampoline. It's pretty much a family gift. We all have used it, and I plan on practicing my gymnastics on it :) I guess adult gymnastics is the latest trend. Take a look
here. My goal is to be able to do a back handspring at age 40+. Unfortunately that is not that far away.

7. To my neighbors: I apologize. It was my kids laughing and screaming at 7:30 this morning on our new trampoline.

8. My husband bought me a new bike so our family can ride together. I think I will need to invest in a special seat. My tush has not been the same since last Friday afternoon's ride.

9. I stubbed my baby toe yesterday. It still hurts and is discoloring. I'm wondering if I fractured it. I hope not since I made fun of my brother-n-law a while back for breaking his toe and using crutches.

10. Here are some fun pictures of Mario look-a-likes. 2 are my favorites, and they are not of my son.

Beautiful children

I can't get over how beautiful this baby girl is.

But then again her brother was just as gorgeous at her age. Here is a pic from 2 years ago.

Thanks again "T"family. I always enjoy watching your children grow and capturing it with my camera.
