As to the weekend, Hubby is still recovering from being sick. Turns out he got pneumonia from the kids and it unfortunately hit him worse and it is taking a lot longer for him to get to 100%. He is better and was well enough to help out with Lil C's 6th birthday party at the climbing gym. C and his friends had a blast!
 The birthday boy climbing and doing great.
The ice cream cake I made that was a hit. Who doesn't love oreos and ice cream? :)
 After the party, the boys had their basketball games in the afternoon. Both did well.
We found out that some new Pokemon came out in Pokemon Go so we went for a walk before dinner. The boys loved that new ones came out. Some are pretty cute like the Sentret below.
 Cool pic taken during our walk.
Sunday's highlight was my 10 mile long run that I ran with @thespeedysurgeon
With rain in the afternoon, got some errands done and even started a 1000 piece puzzle. I had the boys help me find the border pieces and while they were sleeping got most of the border done. I haven't done a puzzle in ages but actually enjoy it. 
That pretty much sums up my week! Linking this post up with HoHo Runs and MissSippiPiddlin for their Weekly Wrap. 
Have a great week!
