This morning, my mom and I went on a 4.0 mile hike on the Split Oak Trail, named afterâ€¦ well, the big split oak along the trail!
The tree is over 200 years old and split apart 50 years ago due to the weight of the lateral branches. Itâ€™s still alive!
Before we left for our hike, I made my mom Pom Pancakes (just like yesterdayâ€™s breakfast!):
We drove to Moss Park and it just so happens that the Orlando Womenâ€™s Triathlon was going on while we were there. Imagine my surprise when we ran smack into Katy!
I paparazzi-ed her for a while. She was doing GREAT! :) After we watched the triathletes, we started to hike:
My mom and I saw lots of wildlife on our hike, including cranes:
And a deer! The deer was gorgeous:
It was fun. Iâ€™m so glad that BOTH of my parents have become more active and healthy. I want them to live long, happy, HEALTHY lives. I feel so proud when my mom says she wants to go on a 4.0 mile hike. Sheâ€™s 64 years old, and she even RAN 0.25 of a mile! She proves youâ€™re never too old to get back into shape. Way to go, Mom!
Then we came back home and I made us a quick and easy lunch: a hummus sammie with grapes and a pickle:
We are driving to the coast for my grandfatherâ€™s â€œCelebration of Lifeâ€ party. I canâ€™t wait to see my family and all my grandpaâ€™s old friends.
Have a great Sunday!
