Whoa. What a Saturday! It started off in the best of ways – MomHTP had spontaneously decided to come visit! Especially now that I have Henry, I miss my mom so much. And it was fun for her to see the little guy – he’s learned a lot of new skills since she was here last.
We woke up bright and early (not too hard with Henry in the house) and they accompanied me to the Rock and Read 5K, which benefits local libraries. A bunch of my friends ran the race, too, which I didn’t really realize was happening until I got to the start. It was a small race so it was easy to find people.
(Thanks to my buddy Brittney for a lot of these race pics!)
I was bib #26 (my favorite number), which was fun. I was pacing Cindi – it was her first race. She said her goal was not to take any walking breaks – a good 5K goal for me, too, right now, especially with such a hard and hilly course!
I was so happy for her – she did great! We didn’t walk once, even up the reaaaaally big and intimidating hills. Success!
At the finish line was my little man. Made me so happy. He was toasty warm despite the cooler temps. Nothing like a cozy car seat to do the trick.
After the race, Mom and I went antiquing… Obviously. You know how we roll. Is a weekend with my mother complete if I don’t go to the thrift store or consignment sale? No.
Turns out, Henry love antiquing. He cooed and laughed the entire time. Lots of funny things to look at.
And then…. this happened.
I always said I wasn’t a cat person, but I guess I am. Welcome to the Boyle house, grey kitty.
Wow, a cat! How are the dogs getting along with the cat? Introducing my dog to my husband’s cat was stressful; took a long while before there was peace in the house. Doing it while having a baby would have killed me!
