Friday Five – Potpourri v. 23

Happy Friday everybody!  If your week has been like mine, its been a jam packed one filled with lots of activity and excitement.  What has made this week so busy?

1.  Monday afternoon little man and I drove to just south of Baltimore to celebrate one of my best friend’s, and his godmother’s, birthday.  It was a low key birthday celebration and we had a wonderful birthday dinner celebrating her.

2.  On Wednesday little man and I flew out to Central Illinois to visit my family.  We kicked off our time here with another birthday celebration, this time for my dad, as his birthday was on Wednesday.  My mom invited some good friends over for dinner and we ended the evening with singing “Happy Birthday” to my dad before enjoying some cheesecake for dessert.

Little man was very excited about singing “Happy Birthday” to his Papa

3.  One of the many things that I had been looking forward to about our visit was being able to run on the trail in my hometown.  I completed Thursday’s run on the trail, and am looking forward to logging even more miles on it while I’m here.

After completing my first of what will be several runs here in Central Illinois for this trip

4.  Summer is just flying by so I’m trying my best to soak in as many special moments with little man as I can.  Yesterday afternoon my sister and I took little man to a local park, which among other things has a splash pad and a playground, both of which we played at yesterday.  All three of us had a fun afternoon together.

5.  Playing at the park brought back memories of my wedding day, as it was at the same park where my wedding photos were taken.  Monday marks seven years of marriage for my husband and I.  The years have just flown by!

    What a nice trip home. I didn’t run on thursday BUT I ran on that same stretch of trail this morning when I was pounding out 11.5 miles. Hope you had a great week celebrating birthday’s and wedding anniversaries. Did you guys hit up any favorite restaurants? I mean I am pretty sure we still have more restaurants than ANY small town could need. HAHA!

    Lovely times, how super. And what a gorgeous trail – I’m in awe yet again, I keep seeing these wonderful places to run that we don’t seem to have here in the UK! I love that you were able to go back to where you had your wedding, and good times with people you’re close to.
