I pretty much let Yelp take over my blog for a while there, but regular life was also happening in between all of those fabulous events. I was dumping all of those non-Yelping photos into a file as the days went by and this morning there were over 250 photos in there. Here are some of them (stuff that happened in the last two weeks):
Lots of walking to school.
Mack is such a trooper for posing for these silly pictures on our walk every morning.
Lots of other school stuff happened, like volunteering the past two Mondays and today.
Three Monday lunches at school with the sweet potato.
Cal’s school had a mandatory PTSA meeting (like PTA with an S, and they are all mandatory) one night…
and it was also a spaghetti dinner.
Mack participated in a multi-school gifted competition called the Creativity Olympics, held at Perkins Elementary.
His team didn’t score in the top three, but he talked about it for hours afterwards and kept saying how much fun it was.
He got the coveted “Participant” ribbon.
Mack got to see a bunch of his friends from his old elementary school, and I did too.
The kids had school on Veteran’s Day and the car line was lined with flags.
My attempts at fashion and bathroom mirror photos over the past two weeks…
Volunteering at school outfits:
Yes, that is a dress covered with purple giraffes. So what?
A Yelp night outfit:
Another Yelp night outfit:
Showing off some of the beads that I made at Painting with Fire Studio:
Gearing up for The Urban Bike Adventure with Team Wonder Wheels in downtown St. Pete this weekend (yikes):
Ugh. Ok. Enough with the horrid selfies. What else?
I noticed on my various shopping trips the past couple of weeks that it is obviously full-on holiday time. I love it.
I don’t love this so much:
I was excited to stop by a new to me fish store a week or so ago.
There were about a dozen people loitering around outside both of the entrances, but sadly, despite the next photo, they were not open.
Some lady was pretty upset because she was supposed to pick up her crab. I hope she got it.
I went back to the doctor.
More on that in another post most likely.
Chewie, the boys, and I went to Largo Central Park one Sunday.
They have the Christmas lights up! We love coming here to see all the lights during the holidays.
Best playground in Pinellas County.
The boys play while I walk laps with Chewie.
Last week I went to a Ladies Night event at The Trek Bicycle Store of St. Petersburg.
I have been missing my friends at the Trek Store since I haven’t ridden my bike very much in the past six months. But next weekend is The Urban Bike Adventure (yikes again), so I took this opportunity to take Star the Trek in for a tune up.
They had some good food…
and a speaker from Trek Women as well as a lady who spoke to us about commuting by bike.
I was happy to see my friends Meghan and Tori there!
You can barely tell in the photo above, but I wore my shirt from the Southeastern Guide Dogs Walkathon last March because Southeastern Guide Dogs was also there and gave us a great presentation.
Duke pretty much stole the show.
I won a giveaway!
A set of tire levers…thanks Trek Store of St. Pete!
Thank you to Anne and her team for another fun event!
And thanks for the tune-up for Star…
and her new sticker which was hard to photograph.
On Saturday we went out to the beach to have some family Christmas card portraits made.
And Sunday we rested.
Or at least some of us did.
So now I’m a little more caught up, but that was not 250 photos, so more to come.
