Race Day!

Mom ran her 2nd half-marathon (that's 13.1 miles) over the weekend and did quite well. She shaved off about 12 minutes for a PR of 1:53, which put her pace at under a 9 minute mile for the race.
Go Mom!!!
The best part was that I got a Tootsie Pop while she was running. Can't wait for the next race!

Here she is getting her fitness on:

Can I take out her Achilles from here...?

Snow time!

We like to be prepared in our house. Hence the ski suit.

It may be a mere 85 outside, and Mom might have cranked up the A/C briefly to get this shot, but it will get cold. In Utah. In February.
Now, the skis, those might be a little trickier...

On Wednesdays, Mom takes me to gymnastics! And Aunt Donna comes to watch! I like to bring one of my cars to watch me, too. Having an audience is always good... It's really a lot of fun, and I'm getting a lot better. I'm pretty sure I'll be doing the vault in a few weeks. I just need to keep asking about it...
Just call me twinkle toes...

The nice thing is that we sometimes get to do something with Aunt Donna after gymnastics. This week we went to Starbucks so I could eat my lunch and the ladies could have coffee. I got a little taste of coffee, too -- and had some coffee yogurt.

Butterfly rescue

Mom found this monarch butterfly on our sidewalk today when she left for spinning at 5.30. She thought it had died and was sad because she really likes these guys. When she came home, though, he was moving around a little.
Fast forward a few hours later and we have ourselves a new butterfly pet. He might not make it that long since his wings are pretty beat up -- probably from the torrential rain this weekend, but at least he's got food and water. He seems to like the pomegranate nectar Mom made him and has tried to fly a little, though we keep telling him not to yet.
