Back to Normal

Charlie and I have been enjoying getting back to our old schedule.  We've met up with Mary and Emily quite a few times and have hit the park and taken quite a few long walks.  We've also read about 500 books.  Okay, I exaggerate, maybe it was only 350.  Either way, it has been a proper bookfest around here!

In other news, I've finally joined a gym!  It happens to be the same facility where the Brazilian Olympians are training.  Not bad!  They have a creche where Charlie can hang out and the facility itself is pretty amazing; it is absolutely huge.  My favourite part of the entire facility isn't the climbing wall, nor is it the Olympic-sized pool, but a tiny room off a long hallway called the "iPod Room."  It is just what it presents itself to be:  a room without overhead music where you can workout while using your iPod.  It sounds so simple but anyone used to working out in a loud gym can appreciate this.  They also have swimming classes and gym classes for little ones.  I can't wait to get Charlie signed up!

Speaking of Charlie, I know that's why you've come here today.  And this blog isn't anything if it isn't pictures of Charlie at the park, so here goes:

And if you didn't notice, Charlie is wearing red, white and blue for these photos.  HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!  We didn't do anything too festive:  Jason was at a dinner event at work so Charlie and I had "breakfast for dinner" with Mary and Emily (Rob is also gone for work . . . ).  If it weren't for Bonfire Night here in the UK, I would probably be a lot more nostalgic for fireworks on the fourth, but as it is, I had a good time chatting with Mary and watching the girls play.

I'll leave you with a picture of some flowers that Jason got me.  I've been getting flowers on the fourth of every month for the last ten years . . . our first kiss was on the fourth of February, 2002 and Jason has commemorated the day with flowers (nearly) every month since then.  I'm super spoiled, I know, but I think it is just the sweetest thing ever!


  1. And they're peonies, too! He not only remembers every anniversary but he remembers your favorite flower.

    Happy 4th, Hungerfords!

  2. Aww, you remembered! :D And so did he. You're both keepers.

  3. Ooh, I'm looking forward to Bonfire Night already...
