Our First 5K
Today, Andy and I participated in our first ever 5K. It was sponsored by weight watchers and it happened to come after a long week at the gym. It didn't rain, but unfortunately, the high today was 96 degrees. The 5K started at 6PM, but the temperature was still 91 degrees. We had a great time, but soon realized why we prefer to go to the gym and drop Brady off at day care, rather than taking nightly walks. About 2/3 of the way through, he started to scream because he was bored and wanted to run around. We plied him with plenty of goldfish and he drank two sippy cups of water. Our finish time was 1 hour, 2 minutes, and 30 seconds.
We knew we were going to have a very active day, so we made plans to head to a Chinese restaurant after the walk. This was the first time we'd gotten Chinese since moving to South Carolina 4 months ago. Brady ate a good deal of the crunchies meant for Andy's soup, had some rice and chicken and beef from our plates, and then ate a whole fortune cookie! He was very pleasant the whole time we were there, which is rare these days because he likes to move around and sitting in a high chair is not so fun anymore.
We are coming up on a busy week and will be preparing for our big weekend trip to Orlando in only 6 days! I can't believe it's happening, when we've been talking about it for the last 7 months!
