Summer is here!!!



Yesterday was the beginning of our summer here in UT. I know it wasn’t the actual first day, but I always look forward to the day after Memorial day. That means everything(pools, splash pads) are open. We met up with my childhood friends Lauren and Mikey(brother and sister) at a splash pad.

Everyone had so much fun. Luckily, we went earlier in the day because by the time we left(about 1pm) it was 85*! I loved getting my summer bag out, the sunscreen, and packing a fruit filled lunch to eat outside. I mean seriously, what could be better than that?

After cleaning up, J decided he wanted to wear underwear(he’ll be 3 in Aug)and even went to the bathroom on the toilet for the first time! I’m so proud of him. I went to the store and pick up a few little toys and treats for when he goes on the toilet. If he keep it up, he’ll get to pick out a big toy. Yesterday he didn’t have any accidents so he got sunglasses.

After dinner, I headed to Kneaders for desserts with my girlfriends. My friend Brittany is moving for the summer, so we’re cramming as much time together that we can.

Really awesome pic, and lighting, I know…

About Sugar Plum Runner

Welcome to the Sugar Plum Runner! I grew up in WA state, but currently reside in UT with my husband Josh, son Jackson, and 2 daughters Lily and Claire. I love running, but I have never been so inspired to run, race, and blog about it since 4 years ago after I had Jackson. I grew up playing soccer and cheered in high school. My favorite part of both sports(and yes I consider cheer leading a sport) was the conditioning. I found myself running after practice was over on my own. That's when I realized that running may be the sport I really loved.

    Everyone knows that the real start of summer is when the pools are open 🙂

    His little mohawk is adorable! Yay for summer!

  3. Jackson is TOO COOL for school. Seriously, hilarious!

    I completely agree about the unofficial start of Summer being Memorial Day, it just makes more sense than the end of June! Plus in TX it’s already crazy hot!

    I always grab my sunglasses at Target because I break too many to be able to invest in really good ones, oh well!

  4. Yay for summer! I have friends who do the same thing with their kids and it really seems to work for potty training. I buy most of my sunglasses at Target.
