Last night I had my first "real" bike ride for exercise. I rode with my sister and 2 friends from work. It was a 10.8 mile ride along the river. It look us about an hour and 15 minutes, but we took lots of breaks and even sat on a bench for awhile to rest our behinds.

I ran in a local 5k the other night called "Run From the Cops" to benefit the Special Olympics. I ran with my mom, sister, and an old friend from my childhood. They shut down a major road in our area at midnight and cops were everywhere! We made shirts that said "D.O.C." ("Department of Corrections")to help us get in the spirit. There were a few other people dressed up like criminals, but not too many.

We had a secret trip planned over the weekend for the kiddos. It was fun listening to them guess where they thought we were going. Guesses included: Disneyland, a baseball game, camping, the mountains, on a boat... Cory took the day off and we loaded up in the car...3D movies and all! Slappycakes! It's a make-your-own pancake sorta place and it was worth the wait!

On July 5th, we lost our beautiful and vivacious Aunt Pam after a 7 month battle with colon cancer. She was only 49 years old. She was such a wonderful person and I really don't know the words to write to express to you how sad we are. We love you Aunt Pam and will miss you. I know you'll be there watching baseball games, biking, and running races along with us.

The 4th was pretty laid back around the old Stemp house this year. We had a 2 mile training run in the morning, then went to Grammie's and Caw's for some fireworks and food, then up to Cory's workplaces roof to view the firework show our town puts on. Here's some pictures to enjoy! The weather was hot, so we went to the gym at Cory's work. It's nothing fancy but gets the job done. Plus it has more than one treadmill so both of us can run indoors, together! He LOVES running with me!
