The Chicago weather gods have finally decided to grace us with a pleasant weekend. After a chilly, gloomy, damp week, this weekend finally brought some acceptable temperatures for outdoor activities! Dan and I couldn’t decide whether we wanted to go for a run, play tennis … so we started by taking Penny for a walk. Dan and I did not do a good job of communicating our expectations for this excursion ahead of time. As a result, I dressed myself and prepared for a loooooooooooooooong walk to tire Penny out, get some exercise and see some sights. Dan dressed for a shorter walk, but donned his new vest, which has a zillion pockets, which I figured would leave him prepared for anything:
Neither of us packed a pedometer, so it’s unclear how far we ACTUALLY walked, but Dan and I estimated that it was most likely a bit over 3 miles. Dan was hot and sweaty, and Penny almost didn’t make it! I had to carry her part of the way home, because she was so tired:
She was literally falling asleep in my arms. I guess next time, we need to bring a wagon for her! I thought maybe we could fit her into one of Dan’s vest pockets, but it was a no-go, unfortunately.
After we came home and had a snack, it was time to start getting ready (again!) We had more fun plans for Saturday night – and we got to see our great friends, Kat and Brian who just got ENGAGED! Couldn’t be happier for them. Congrats again!!!
