Parkrun Junior 2k

Weston ran his first Parkrun Junior 2k event today on a very muddy course in 15 min and 47 sec. Parkrun is a free volunteer run timed running/walking event. The adult 5k races are on Saturdays and the junior (4-14 years) 2k races are on Sundays. Weston had a great time even despite a muddy slip on the first part of the track. 2k is approx 1.25 miles.

Rollerblading

We went roller skating today and it was the first time Weston’s feet have been big enough for roller blades. He did awesome, much better than I expected. He said it was like ice skating and he loved it.

Geodes!

Weston had a great time busting open geodes he received at Christmas. We employed the smash it in a sock technique as well as the well placed hammer technique. He found some really cool crystals, flung one geode out a hole in the end of one sock and managed to leave all the windows intact.

Texas Chill Time

Scattered amongst our busy days was some chill out time. We played fuseball and air hockey, made slime, rode on plasma cars, built hot wheels car cities, climbed trees, went for walks and just enjoyed being together again with family.

Our visiting time flew by and then it was time for the long plane ride home to England. It will probably be another long stretch before we make the trip back to Texas again. I’m glad we were able to spend the holidays with extended family this year.

Puppy (and Kitty) Love

Weston really enjoyed loving on all the animals. Seeing Ally again in person was part of the push to make the trip back to Texas. It was very important to Weston to see her. He also made fast friends with Grammi’s Daisy. And he helped Mimi care for her neighbor’s cats while their owners were away. Last but not least, we met Aunt Jessica’s new puppy Leo via video chat.

Incredible Pizza

We spent a few hours at Incredible Pizza one day. Weston especially loved the race car games. I enjoyed some skeeball and Andrew got super lucky on an old school shoot the space ship type game and won 500 tickets in one go. We pooled tickets and Weston picked a soccer ball as his part of the prizes.
