I do love the opportunity to go on as many field trips with the girls as I have. This time I got to meet Lucy (and Kerry!) at Historic Oak View Park as we looked around a farm. Pretty cool---they got to pick their own cotton, see how it was made into thread, see animals, how they washed and cooked in the day, and other neat things. Cool!
Went rock climbing this weekend. Lucy had an event for Girls on the Run, so Myra got the chance to climb some rocks! She would make it up halfway, then stop and come down. Once she heard there were prizes, though, she scaled this one pretty quick!
Girls were VERY proud of their mother (and I was proud of my wife) for the Marine Corps Marathon recently. Even though it did not end the way she wanted, she was amazing and showed amazing strength and courage.
So now the decision is mine for Pittsburgh in 2014.
Girls finished their track out with a fun afternoon at Pullen Park. I had the lawn company come and aerate the yard in the morning, then we headed to Pullen in the afternoon. Beautiful day to be outside with my family!
Wife and I hardly know how to act. Two date nights in one weekend. Thursday night we went on a brewery tour of Aviator in Southern Wake County. Great fun going through the tour, sampling beers, and bringing home some pint glasses. Definitely something we would like to do again. Then this evening we will go to a birthday party at a friend's house. Fun!
