Weekend Re-Cap - Lake Tobias Wildlife Park

Normally on the weekend, since Hubby works through the week, Lil Man will spend a lot of time with Daddy outside working on projects. Lately they've been working on building a wood shed.

But this last weekend, Hubby took a break from working on the wood shed to brew beer, which is one of his hobbies. I know that Lil Man likes to help his Daddy, but I also know that sometimes Daddy needs his time to do 'his thing' too without a little helper around. 

So after my 6 mile run, I took Lil Man to Lake Tobias Wildlife Park. I had no idea that it would be as crowded as what it was. But it was a beautiful day. It was Saturday. So I should have known it  would be super crowed. 

But we had a fun day (in spite of having to wait in super long lines for the safari - but worst of all waiting for food).  Lil Man loved the safari tour. And he loved feeding the animals. Oh, and don't forget the playground. He had to play on everyone. (There were three.)  We missed not having Daddy with us though. But I am glad that Hubby got a little time (that he never seems to get) to do something he wanted to do. 

After several hours at the park, we finally made it back home where Hubby was just finishing up his beer brewing. And just in time for Lil Man to help Daddy with cleaning up things with the water hose ;) 

After such a busy weekend. (I ran 15 miles yesterday), we decided to spend some time at home today. Lil Man is playing with his toys. I am doing lots of - surprise surprise - laundry. 

We are definitely trying to squeeze some last summer fun!

What Summer Taught Me

This Summer has been a big learning experience - for both Lil Man and myself. Who knew that an amusement park could be such a learning experience for both of us. I watched as my little boy, all on his own, climbed stairs among strangers, learned how to wait his turn, slide down a water slide, and do it over and over again. I watched as other kids shoved him out of their way, cut in front of him as he stood patiently 'waiting for his turn'. Groves of bigger kids kept cutting in front of him, and I held back and gave him time to respond. This for me was a learning experience. See, people have to have room or space to grow. So I learned how to let go, let out the leash a little, and give Lil Man some space. The first time the kids pushed him aside, he really didn't know what to do. After a few minutes of this, I did intervene. I told him to get in line. Take his turn, and when it was his turn he was to go. And the next time as other kids pushed past him, it only took a few

Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker Review and Giveaway

I love music and streaming music through various apps on my iPhone. But with the case that I have on my phone, it sort of blocks the speakers a little. I can hear, but it can be a little muffled. So when I heard about the  Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker  I jumped at the chance to try it. I was a little nervous since there really wasn't a lot of instructions on setup. I mean it had the usual pictures of this button does this etc, but there really wasn't a lot of documentation with it. So I was a little apprehensive at first.  But it didn't take me too long to realize that I didn't need a lot of instruction. It was pretty much straight forward. Charge it. After it was charged, turn it on. I went into my connections on my iPhone. It immediately found it, paired, and I was good to go.  I did get a little confused on which button was volume up (and down). But after a little trial and error with that, I've had absolutely zero iss


You'd think as many times as I've been rejected in my life that rejection wouldn't hurt anymore. Really, I can't count the number of times that I've been rejected, or slighted, or been on the receiving end of cruel words. I'm almost 40 for pete's sake. Rejection shouldn't bring tears anymore, but it still does. It just seems like I've been faced with it a lot lately. It started with the Running and has seemed to carry over into other parts of my life. I have spent most of my life on the sidelines watching other people. That's what happened with the marathon.   Once again, I'm on the side as others do things that I want to do. I trained. I had to have an unexpected surgery. I got injured. I couldn't run. It happens. It isn't the end of  the world. But what many don't realize is that there are numerous times in my life that I am on the sidelines, watching, wishing I was the one 'out there' - not the one watching. . But
