A weekend with my girls

It's been a busy weekend (well, a busy week altogether, but we've had a lot of fun this weekend). I've been volunteering at the NBA Jam Session--games and activities for fans as part All-Star weekend. For volunteering, they gave me tickets to the festivities. Last night, I brought my girls out for a little fun. We played at the Kids Zone, shot the sling shot, caught a glimpse of Gary Payton, and even got a picture with one of my basketball heroes, Deron Williams. So what if he was just a life-sized cutout.

Today, since Lani was at a meeting/training all day today (she's starting down the path to her dream of becoming a doula), I took the girls to the park to play at the playground, and to participate in the Freakishly Flexible 5K. It's a good thing this "5K" is so flexible because, due to my knee, I wasn't able to run it. We walked the 1.1 miles around the lake in 17:28. It was a beautiful day for a walk. Would have been an even better day to run, but I won't go into that. We had a fun time playing in the park, feeding the ducks, swinging, sliding, digging, and climbing.

cute kids. glad you had a blast at the jam session.

I watched Long Green Line the other night. Have you seen it? It's about the York HS X country team that has won 25 state championships. It's mostly about the coach. I thought of you.
