A trail to remember

So, today I walked before the kiddos got up.  Or at least that is what I was hoping for.

CX was up as always.  That kid has an internal clock that is unreal!  Same time every day!  (I think I might have done that from when he was a baby.  Being breast fed and all, he was on a very regimented schedule.  I still had to be able to do things too!)

So, as he gets into the shower and Sir is in the other shower (yes, we still have two working for right now.  I'm sure that stage will be gone for a short while soon.) I grabbed my sneakers and snuck out!  Plugged my ear phones buds into my phone and set out to get my exercise.

It was really refreshing to be out so early in the morning.  The sun wasn't up yet, not near the traffic and nice and brisk!  Loved it!

Then my alarm on my phone went off so I walked indoors.

This is what I was greeted with, "Mom, you look funny when you make the corner here by the house!  And your butt really shakes when you walk too!"

"Thanks bud!  You always know how to make mom feel like a million bucks!"

And as Aimus said, "Sometimes we just don't wanna hear it, but at least our loved ones are there to push us."

That was more like a gut shot than a push though!

Anyway, I have been busy making goodies for the Relay Recess that is going on this Saturday.

My kiddos kindergarten teacher, yes, they both have had the same teacher (I got lucky!), was diagnosed with cancer last March and has gone thru all treatments and is cancer free.  So we started a Relay in honor of her.  She is so awesome!

But the Relay Recess is one of our fundraisers for our team.  We are having a donation only carnival or recess as you will.  Dunk tank, bake sale, activities, bounce house, etc.  It should be a great time, but the temp is only supposed to be 56 on Saturday.  And the principal of the elementary is going to be in the dunk tank.  Yikes!  He's awesome too! 

So, I will be back soon with goodies to show you.  I had to use my phone camera so no wise cracks about the pics!

I also wanted to leave you all with a little tidbit.

I grew up in a very small town.  Very small.  Like 300 people and I think that that might have included all the cows.  I went to school in a little bit bigger town, about 3,000 people.  And I remember when we got our Sonic in town.  I was in high school.  Anyhow, there was always a group of guys that would ride their horses into town to go to Sonic.  Honestly!  And they would tie the horses in the drive up stalls.  Still, totally honest!  And they always let a trail behind them.

Well, I was sitting at a red light yesterday and looked over to the side.  This is what I saw.

Yep, that is exactly what it looks like!

I always thought this little metropolis that I live in was a little more city than where I grew up.  Apparently, I was mistaken!

Have you ever seen anything funny or odd on the side of the road?

Thanks for swinging in today.  Have a great day!
