one of my favorite views

this is my favorite view in the morning...


the view of their cute little legs...

when I take them running with me
they almost look like little frog legs when I have the shade down because all I can see is their cute legs
they are relaxing as I run my hiney off pushing them...
no need to point out how I torture myself
but it sure makes me smile when I look down and see their cute little legs

and everyday...I get asked by them...

"Mommy are you sweating?"
because I sweat a lot...
I'm not kidding...it's really quite embarrassing how much I sweat

And after I run...
this is what they do with me

stretch...

Madison didn't look too happy because I asked her to reenact her stretch to catch it on camera because she is so cute doing this  

they take their shoes off to stretch because I do too
as a matter of fact...
when we get done
they say
"It's hot...lets take our shoes off to stretch!"

gotta love these sweet girls and how they love go run with me just because they enjoy being with me
most mornings they ask before I say anything
kinda makes you feel good

I love how they love to copy you, it's so sweet seeing Kayla do things that I like to do or copying me! A little jealous they sit while you run also, Kayla rarely sits in a stroller. :(

i love the little stories like these.

cheers to sweating! hahaha

Ahh so cute! love the stretching! my punk likes to go walking and on occasion running with me...he always takes a snack and juice and 10 blankets and then I spend the walk covering his toes cause he is cold...I absolutely love this view! muwahhh!

Absolutely adorable!! love the flip flop feet hanging out of the stroller!~ cracks me up that they say they need their shoes off ~ since they are flip flops!! ha ha!

my little man has been 'lifting weights' with mommy ~ when I remember to do a few reps with my baby weights for my arms!! so cute! =) they won't run the track with me and the dog though... lazy little buggers! =) well... since Abby is in Soccer I guess I can't call her lazy! =) he he!

If I could, I'd give you a high five... from one sweaty lady to another. I'm a sweater.

Jacki said...

love those toes and shoes on those kiddoes! They are fortunate to have a mom who takes such good care of her health too!

I love to see when mommies treasure these simple moments in time. They pass by so quickly and are replaced by blurs of teenagers running here and there.

You are such a sweet mom. They are lucky girls....and so are you!
