Weekend Fun

Happy Saturday everyone!  I hope you are enjoying a wonderful weekend!  The Roeseler's have had a busy, but fun family weekend.

Last night, we went to the Zoo for a member preview of a few new exhibits, including Painted Dogs, Andean Bears and Sun Bears, and we had a great time.  The weather was beautiful and since we didn't get there until a little after 6, the exhibits weren't too crowded.  We loved looking at the new animals and it was so fun watching the boys have a great time.

This fun, photogenic hippo!
Today, we went to a birthday party for a dear friend and we had a great time hanging out, eating bbq, and swimming.  We had quite a few thunderstorms prior to the party, so I wasn't sure that we were going to be able to swim, but serendipitously, the rain stopped right around the time the party started and it stopped long enough for us to swim for a few hours.  Just as we were getting out of the pool, another smattering of storms came through.  Both boys (and Matt and I) will sleep well tonight!  Thank you for inviting us to your party, Mackenzie!  We had a wonderful time celebrating with you and hope you have a great time being 5!

I'm hoping to get out for a long(ish) run tomorrow, so the quote below is quite fitting!  It's actually fitting for every run!

"Your body will argue that there is no justifiable reason to continue. Your only recourse is to call on your spirit, which fortunately functions independent of logic."
