On Friday, we drove up to the cities to take Luke to the Minnesota Zoo!
Quick stop at Cane’s for chicken fingers first. . .
And then yummy spaghetti for dinner. . . Luke’s 1st time!
I watched a documentary called Hungry For Change during my hour long run on Saturday.
It was pretty interesting. It raises some important points about sugar intake in our diets. It also piqued my interest in juicing. Alas, I don’t have a juicer. Anyone want to lend me theirs? I think the important thing to take away from the film, is that whole, unprocessed foods are the best. One warning however, I didn’t agree with everything the film said. .. in fact, I almost turned it off they compared giving your kids sugary breakfast cereal to injecting them with heroin. I get the comparison, sugar is a drug. . . but that was taking it a little far for my taste. Have you seen it? It’s on Netflix instant play if you’re interested. I have Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead on my instant play too – has anyone seen that?
Sadness that my White Chocolate wonderful peanut butter is gone. . . pure puppy happiness when I let her lick out the jar.
Saturday afternoon we went to watch the Midwest ASCE concrete canoe competition on Madison Lake. Minnesota State University – Mankato was hosting 6 other schools. Scott competed when he was at Purdue, but I never got to watch. . . so it was fun to see it. Cold (about 40 degrees) but sunny! Basically the engineering students build a canoe out of concrete and race their canoes. . . and they are very heavy! It takes a whole team to carry it into the water.
Luke and Abby playing on Sunday morning. . .
Taught body pump at the YMCA on Sunday morning. . . and the microphone didn’t work. . . I had to yell the whole class. I think it went ok and people could still hear me, but it is always super hard to teach when you don’t have the microphone. But body pump is still awesome.
And the birthday balloons from last weekend are still lots of fun.
Sunday afternoon, I had planned to take Luke for a run in the jogging stroller because it was supposed to be about 50 degrees. And just when I was going to go change, it started raining. At first, I was crabby because I thought I couldn’t go running and Luke and I would be stuck inside for the rest of the afternoon. . . but then I decided that we should at least try to go. It was raining the whole time. And I got soaked, but Luke stayed pretty dry with the stroller cover over his head and a blanket on his lap. And he just babbled away the whole run! Totally the right decision to go! And we were both happier when we came back.
Hope you had a great weekend too! Up to anything exciting?
