Since I never gave an update on September, I will do that now, twelve days into November.
It seems like a lifetime ago, man work got busy.
We started off September with a really bad ear infection in one ear and a little infection in the other year. Of course this happened during Labor Day weekend so we had to go to one of those pediatric clinics. At least he got relief. We also went to his friend’s birthday party the next weekend. It was at a gymnastics place that has a foam pit. The kids spent most of the party in the foam pit. The next weekend he had another friends birthday party but this one at a brewery with a playground. The brewery has a huge yard so the kids had fun running around and playing on the playground while the adults could enjoy themselves. We also went to a monthly Farmer’s Market by our house which is always fun to walk around. The last weekend in the month, we went to another brewery with a playdate group. The kids played giant connect four, and since it has a gravel ground, they all brought toys to play in the gravel with.
Marathon training started the month before so just gradually increasing my mileage. I try to do yoga the day after a long run just to stretch out my muscles. The only other thing I did differently this month during my workouts was that I participated in the St. Jude Walk/Run. I did the run in pouring rain but I love St. Jude and it is one charity I will always donate to.
We started October with our first camping trip for the season. We went to Goliad State Park and went to the presidio and mission in the area(history nerd here). While there we went to Goliad Brewery which was very laid back and they had a playground so my son was happy. Since October is also Halloween month, we started it by going to Zoo Boo. My son loves Halloween and enjoyed the Halloween activities at the zoo. We also went to everyone’s first Texans game. My husband was given his company seats for the game so we were just a few rows up from the field. Since we got 4 tickets, we invited my friend to come with us. We went camping one more time this month but this time with friends for a going away party. The place we camped was really cool and not that far from us. We again went to the local farmers market and visited a pumpkin patch to pick out our pumpkin. I carved it into Green Lego Ninjago(Lloyd) because that is what was requested.
We ended Halloween month with two Trunk or Treat events. We didn’t really go trick-or-treating on Halloween because it was raining. We just did two houses.
Just kept running. I did run at Goliad State Park which was fun because it is different. I went to go cheer at a half marathon. The day before, I coached my group because the coaches were running the half marathon the next day. So I went out on the course and cheered for them. I always enjoy cheering.
So that was 2 months in a real quick summary.
