Funny Foto Friday: Scooter Couch

As I type this I’m sitting on a plane on my way to Missoula, MT for the Missoula marathon.  Like I’ve said before, I’m excited for the solo trip away to refresh, recharge and get caught up on a few things that I have been putting off.  Read: Old episodes of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, brainstorming puns for my blog, and pooping without a toddler barging in sleep. Sweet glorious sleep.  (Update, I landed just pooped in a Target bathroom and can you guess who barged in???  A freaking dad with two toddlers. I CAN’T ESCAPE!)

Over the last month I’ve been very busy and have essentially been getting by on caffeine and sugar. Of course, being that I am separated from the bathroom by a sea of sleeping humanity, the massive coffee and Fiber granola bar this morning probably weren’t the best choice.  So, with nothing to comfort me but the feeling of a small toddler sitting on my colon, here is today’s funny foto Friday!

When diabetes finally gets the best of my feet from all of the Poptarts, I am going to SO get a scooter couch

All that this equation needs is running!

Finally, like I said earlier, last week I was in Iowa visiting my dad, little brother, and little sister in Iowa.  My dad recently bought and remodeled a cabin on a lake and this was my first time visiting.

Going “home” is always fun.  There is a lyric in a song that I like that says “turns out, its not where you’re from but who you’re with that really matters”.  So, while I no longer live in the Midwest, the sights and sounds (and smells?) of Iowa will always be considered “home”.

Here is the last batch of a few pics that I took while visiting.  Happy Friday!

There is really something relaxing about swinging. Thank god he didn't let go and go launching into the lake

My son and my dad.  Both were having fun, in spite of their faces....I hope

My grandfather collects antique tractors (both toy and “full size”). Explaining to a 2 year old that they are just to look at proved to be rather difficult

“Playing” with my dad’s backhoe. The older the boy, the more expensive the toy.....

See, I would have launched into the lake. But that is how I roll.

Good luck tomorrow! Also, I've pooped twice today already. And it's been tricky because there is a pro triathlete staying with us here, and I'm embarrassed to poop while he's around.

Hey awesome to run into you! I was kinda cought off guard and still wish I would have licked your face during the photo op. fail. Good luck tomorrow and hope to share a coldie at the finish line with you!

My boys hate cameras. As soon as one comes out, the smiles and giggles disappear and they turn on the serious looks.
Love the picture of your dad and son; ones like that are treasured forever.
