Week 02.47 - Aporkalypse.

"Oh, No!"

Paige had a minor disaster.  She was putting some change in her piggy bank, and went to pick it up.  She lost her grip (no surprise, given how heavy it was) and the little pig gave up the ghost.  Paige took it really really hard. We loaded up as much as we could into her back-up piggy bank and carted it off to the bank, so she could deposit the money into her savings account.

"Yippee, what should I buy?"

Because she is doing such a good job of saving money, she was able to go shopping with Valerie and pick something out to purchase.  She bought a very nice Crayon/Colored Pencil/Marker/Cray-pas set, because she loves to color.  Hopefully it lasts longer than the piggy bank (doubtful).

"Momma, will you braid my hair?"

Paige's hair is officially long enough to braid.  Valerie is loving it.  Apparently all that hard work practicing in church on the ribbons in the song book paid off.

"Let's go this way Kate!"
Just another fun-filled afternoon at the Eagle's Nest indoor playground with her friend Kate.

"Jump, Jump, JUMP!"
We had a very eventful and fast-paced Twin Cities Marathon weekend.  I ran the Twin Cities Marathon 10K race, then hopped on my bike to meet Paige and Valerie to head over to her gymnastics class at Highland Park High School.  We then had to hop back on our bikes and head back over to the State Capitol Grounds for Paige's race.

"I can see the finish.  I can make it!"

We made it just in time for Paige to hop in to her age group heat.  Paige ran the half-mile race, and pretty much ran the entire way.

"There's nothing like some salty snacks and a bit of water after a long race, is there Daddy?"

Paige enjoyed some post-race snacks for a couple minutes before we had to hop on our bikes and head back home, as Valerie had to work that afternoon.  All in all it was a fun-filled day.
