The Sick Kid Chaos Effect

Dylan has come down with something nasty. The poor thing has been sick and miserable since yesterday. He’s not hungry, so he won’t eat anything, he just wants to stew in sick and cranky.

I went to work last night, and Dylan gave Christina a run for her money. I have work tonight but I think I’m going to have to call out take care of preggo mama and sick little boy.

Here comes the fire truck! The people will be surprised that a Christmas tree is helping them. But then he will get out and do a tap dance and everyone will be happy.

Apparently the Christmas tree toy is not only a heroic fire fighter but also a tap dancer. Because everyone could use a little tap dance after being saved.

philadelphia rock-and-roll half marathon, 2014

Today, the girls and I sat on the sidelines and cheered for Jeremy as he ran the Philadelphia Rock-and-Roll Half Marathon.

It was a great day all around, and Jeremy finished it in 1:37:49 and killed his half marathon PR by TWELVE minutes. He’s a beast! We are so proud of him!

I also got a chance to see two of my favorite female elite runners compete for the first time, Kara Goucher and Deena Kastor. This was Kara’s first race back in over a year while she was recovering from an injury. And Deena set the World Record in the women’s Master’s division this morning. So inspiring to see these two, up close and personal, doing what they do best on the same streets I run every weekend.

But enough about them. Go Jeremy! We love you so much!

Sunday recap:

Impromptu mini road trip to Orange County. We stopped at a park where we found unused water balloons (pictured earlier). We did a little shopping and had some lunch. We trecked across a section of Fairview Park which is littered with seashells that apparently are left over from native tribes from 1500 BC?!? My husband took home a couple of shells to clean off. We basically left with ancient artifacts. Crazy. Came home and did a little chalk drawing. Billy is getting so good at coloring in shapes! At least large ones like these. Topped off the night with new jammies. “ROAR!”
