Comparing-Crazy Joy

I woke up this morning to 68 degrees and sunny! Perfect day for a 6 mile jog with Spike. When the weather at 6am isn't 86 degrees and 100 percent humidity, I remember why I love running so much! Spike went the whole way and I didn't even listen to music! That's (Victoria Beckham) MAJOR for me! I usually listen to pandora on my Iphone and I listen so much that I honestly have memorized several of their commercials. Yes, I know I could BUY pandora and skip the commercials, but I'm too cheap and I just enjoy free stuff a lot more.

Today I am linking up with Lesley at Recipe for Crazy for the Crazy Joy Challenge. If you want to know what this is all about, go to her page and find out. It's pretty exciting, fun, and challenging (are you so curious yet? You should be. This will change your life. Or it won't. Who knows?). 

The word of the week for the challenge is comparison. I came up with this pic:

This is what I came home to after my run. Two men, twenty four years apart, but sleeping the exact same way. One has a little more chest hair, (but not much. Thank the good Lord I didn't marry Austin Powers) yet they look so much alike when they are sleeping. My nephew stayed the night with us and insisted on sleeping in the middle. You could pretty much compare the two and see what the little guy will look like in twenty four years. Pretty adorable to come home to, if I do say so myself.

After some breakfast and coffee, Isabelle and I went to a local splash park with my mom. This place was crazy! She had so much fun watching the other kids play (this place is a free babysitter for lazy tired parents) and pulling my mom and I around until our backs screamed for mercy!
Rockin her model face.

Rockin her old man face
"Hey Lady! What's the point of you making me wear this Skipper hat if it won't even cover my face?"
And just like I remember the water parks doing to me...she was starving and exhausted when we left and took a nice, long nap. Thank you inventor of water parks.

love the comparison pic and the one of your little girl sleeping. i love that when they sleep their cheeks just sag. i was holding my daughter just last night and in the shadows of her room could see her cheeks just drooping. it was great.
