Hello! We ended up having a great day today. The weather held out, there was a super turn out at the walk (over 2300 walkers), DS played his last ball hockey game of the season and they won 9-1, soccer photos were taken and some relaxation took place! I started the day quite early for me on a weekend (6:30am), but I was too excited to sleep. I got up, checked emails and then made a hearty bowl of oats to carry me through a 5km walk.
- 1.5 cups water
- 1/2 cup Quaker oats
- almond butter
- Crofter’s jam
The boys weren’t able to do the actual walk because they had to leave for the ball hockey game, but they were there for the start and came back for the finish. Once everyone was back we got in line for some lunch. This year lunch was sausage on a bun with peppers and onions and pasta salad:
I ate some of the bun, but I’ve never been a big bread fan so I ditched it about a quarter of the way through and just ate the sausage and peppers. KC was one tired, satisfied pup by the time we were ready to leave. He decided to chill with my hubby as we were going back to the Jeep:
Look at that little face! His “Mom” told me that he slept ALL afternoon! I’m not surprised one bit. Over lunch the walk organizers made a few announcements about which teams and individuals raised the most money and the best news of all was that with today’s fundraising totals added, the past 5 years that the walk has been taking place has officially raised over a million dollars for paediatric brain tumour research! Isn’t that amazing??? A special THANK YOU to my readers who donated money to our team!!! :)
We had just enough time when we got home for DS to change into his soccer uniform and head out for pictures. We were on the Starbucks end of town so we made a pit stop on the way home. DS usually gets a chocolate milk there but he had it in his head to get a frap so I let him roll with it. He went for a tall vanilla bean frap, 1/2 whip;
He wouldn’t let me near that baby with a ten foot pole and got right down to business slurping it up. It was almost gone when we got home which amazed me because I didn’t figure he’d get half way through the sucker. :) I went with a grande NF, 1/2 sweet iced chai tea latte:
Numma! I spent the remainder of the afternoon power washing my driveway and chilling on the deck with a magazine. A great afternoon for sure! We’re going to Mom and Dad’s for Father’s Day dinner tomorrow so we did our little meal tonight. My hubby opted for Chinese so DS and I went to get takeout. Here’s my plate of goodness!
We also ate on the deck which was just perfect. An unpictured Skinny Cow chocolate fudgsicle was my sweet end. My parents stopped by for a visit and Dad was feeling like watermelon so he made a trip down the street to the grocery store for one. The 6 of us killed a big, sweet melon and it was glorious….although I feel like exploding right now! HA!
I’m off now to wrap my Hubby’s Father’s Day gift before he emerges from the shower. Will you be seeing your Dad or someone special tomorrow?
Bye for now!!
