Everyday Moments

These random iPhone photos are dark, blurry, and untouched,
but they capture everyday moments from the last couple weeks.

On Sunday afternoon, the girls and their neighborhood friend Liza enjoyed playing at the free splash pad that's near our house:



Hadley ate a snack in the shade at the splash pad:

Hadley played at the park next to the splash pad:

While Tal got a haircut, the girls and I visited the pet store next door. The girls' favorite animals were the fish and the cats: 

Savannah has read 21 chapter books since November!

A couple times a week, the girls enjoy playing with the water hose in our driveway:

 Hadley made a fashion statement in her swimming suit and rain boots:

On June 20, Hadley and I met our friend Emily and her boys Xavier and Felix at Three Bears Acres for a playdate: 

The kids enjoyed playing in the water:

Emily and Xavier rode a paddle boat:

Over the last five weeks, Tal and I have been following Optavia to help us lose weight and get to a healthy BMI. So far, Tal has lost 22 lbs, and I've lost 17 lbs.  For some of our dinners this week, Tal and I each ate five turkey meatballs from Trader Joe's with one cup of zero pasta and 1/4 cup of Rao's tomato sauce. (Zero pasta is made from the root of a plant and is low-calorie and low carb.): 

 We also made healthy pizzas at home. We topped a Cali'flour cauliflower pizza crust with 1/4 cup of Rao's tomato sauce, 1/4 cup of reduced fat mozzarella cheese, and 1/4 cup of Jennie O Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage. So yummy!

We also stopped at Sprouts (a health food store) and stocked up on Walden Farms salad dressings, pancake syrup, and barbecue sauce...which are all calorie free, fat free, and sugar free:

Hadley is spending this week at Grandma Barbara's house, so this evening Savannah and I tagged along while Tal went golfing. Savannah read her graphic novel, and I read four magazines, while Tal played a round of golf in less than two hours. We enjoyed spending a relaxing evening outside together!
