A couple weeks ago I tried to document our day by snapping ten photos to show what we were up to. 
This is Saturday, February 10th 2018

Our Saturday morning started off bright and early, as it usually does because our boys don't sleep in, but on this day we were out the door early for Owen's first mud race! 


Owen ran the Burlingame Muddy Mile with Keith! This is them before the race when they were still pretty clean!

And them after their race! There was a mile run before all of the obstacles -- army crawl, rope swing, rock climb, etc. Owen said it was so much fun that he wanted to do the whole thing over again right then. I see more fun races in his future!

Luke fell asleep as soon as he and I arrived at the finish line to wait for Keith and Owen. I wished that he had been awake to see Owen do the obstacles, but it was definitely easier for me that he was asleep.

Owen helped clean his fish tank when we got home. We're supposed to do this every other weekend, but we didn't have time two weekends in a row (sorry, fish), so it was in real need of a cleaning that day. I think the fish and tank are the best birthday gift we've ever given Owen because not only do they provide him some entertainment, but they have also given him some more responsibilities at home.

While Keith and Owen cleaned the fish tank I put together lunch for Owen and Luke. Nothing fancy, but something semi-ballanced that I know they will enjoy. Anyone else feel like a short order cook most of the time? I want them to both like what they're eating, but most of the time the only thing that's the same on both their plates is grapes!

Keith went for a haircut in the afternoon, so the boys and I hung out at home and played. It seems like we're always rushing off to somewhere on the weekends, so it's really nice to stay in and just let them play with their (many, many, many) toys. In anticipation of Monday being the 100th day of school Owen and I counted out 100 Legos by grouping 10 groups of 10 and then we built a fort out of them.

After Keith came home I snuck off for a pedicure. It was lovely! I went with the orange-ish color, which is OPI My Chihuahua Bites. There was an open house in our neighborhood with the same plan as ours, so I stopped by that on the way home too. I always hope to get some ideas, but it was pretty plain.

We decided to take the boys out for dinner, so we tried ROAM burger in downtown San Mateo. Owen loved the blood orange soda, and we all thought the fry trio (original, zucchini and sweet fries) was aaaamazing! I had the French & Fries burger, which was great, but probably too heavy for me to get again.

Afterward we took the boys to Talbots Toyland for some toys. If I could chose I would buy all of their toys there. The prices aren't as low as Amazon, but the experience of shopping in a classic (dare I say old school) toy store is priceless. We always find something new to buy there. Owen got a venus fly trap kit and Luke got a Playmobil garbage truck, because he's obsessed with garbage trucks. Luke also loved the little playhouses!

And that was our day!
