Walking Trails & a Date

Wednesday was absolutely beautiful, so we decided to get out and enjoy the weather. First, we went to pick up our photo passes for Point Mallard. I've never had a season pass to...anything in my whole life. The kids are so excited. This will be the first swimming season that Cody will be able to swim without having a hole in his neck. He can't wait to get in the water!

Anyway, after that we walked one of the trails out at Point Mallard.

Our Dogwood

Brit and I decided to run back to The Beast from here...about 1/4 mile. I ran the whole way. Part of me is completely jazzed by that...ya know baby steps and all. But the other part of me is like Damn girl, you're out of shape! I used to run the track at Wilson Morgan. Oh steps.
After running, my throat tightened up and I coughed for the next hour or so. Perhaps asthma? Perhaps my body is now allergic to running? I don't know. My right lung still hurts when I take a deep breath, laugh, or cough but it's getting better. I'll keep an eye on that.

Then we decided to hit the Flint Creek Trail.

I saw a shadow of a bird on the ground and looked up to see a Bald Eagle! It circled above us twice and then it was gone. It was so exciting to see...I didn't get a picture :(

This guy rode on our windshield all the way home. I named him Squishy...and he shall be mine and he shall be my Squishy :)

Our Dogwood again. I love that tree.

Bobby and I went out on a date that night. We went to Chili's and grabbed a bite to eat, went to the movies and watched Limitless and went to Logan's for a drink. I had a peach daiquiri...YUM

I sure do love that man.


  1. you really do want to check up on that tightness in your throat. sounds like asthma to me. thats what happened to me when we first found out about mine.

  2. Wow! That looks fun! Brit you look so grown up!
