Next generation of runners
We had another busy weekend. It started off as a bad weather weekend but turned out quite nice. I have scheduled my c-section for April 7th at 7:30 am! The baby is still big (of course) and sideways. I have not gained any weight in the past few weeks, but things look good and he is growing and getting ready to come into the world. I am still just as swollen (more so in the face even) but hanging in there.
There was the big 10K here this weekend. It went on despite the flooded streets and bad weather and turned out well. I opted out of the 10K and am glad I did. We did stand at the end of our street and cheer the racers on. I know it is always so motivating to have people cheering you on when you are doing something like that. I did the fun run with my mom and the monkeys and was sore in my pelvic area and back for the next 36 hours! I "ran" with little monkey and he really did make me run some. My mom took big monkey and she said he ran a good half mile before slowing. They decided to stop and rest and wait for us so the monkeys could sprint to the finish line with their Gigi while mommy waddled a bit behind! It was great. They were so excited. They saw the runners pouring water over their heads after the race and they had to join in of course. Everyone gets a ribbon at the end and that really made them happy. I am looking forward to next year when I can run the big one and the small one with the monkeys.. they may be faster than me by then though. We ended up in the Sunday newspaper with Big Monkey shining front and center. He is so proud about his picture in the paper, and I have a feeling it might be the first of many.
We went to an Easter Egg hunt Sunday afternoon and had a wonderful time in the sunshine. It was a beautiful spring day and the monkeys enjoyed hunting eggs and seeing the Easter Bunny.
