Today was fun!  We had friends in town from Minnesota and we met up with them at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History.  It was the first time that Ging met my daughter and I hadn’t seen her or her kids in a couple of years.  She’s one of my 3 decade friends.  I’ve been blessed by having great long time friends in my life.  We can just pick up where we left off and always have a great time.  We enjoyed the museum and then had a picnic near the dinosaur.  The weather was great and so was the company.



Today, we ventured to the Cleveland Museum of Natural History to check out the Little Builders exhibit.  It was GREAT.  We arrived about 5pm and Nick and Sally were the only ones at the exhibit.  We were greeted by Dane and Amanda.  They work at the admissions desk Wednesday evenings and we see them often.


The exhibit is full of items that turn, stack, move and topple!


Since the exhibit is open until September, I think we’ll get to know it well.


On the exercise front, I completed 15 minutes on the elliptical along with my PT exercises and a nice arm workout (row, lat pull down, biceps, triceps).

Next up: PT and water workout tomorrow afternoon.


My day started out with a Local Flora class at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History.  We had a brief classroom session and then headed on a field trip to take a look at live plants and trees.  We talked and walked around for a couple of hours.  It was a great learning experience and we didn’t get wet.

After the class, I headed to the Cleveland Marathon, 1/2 Marathon and 10K race expo.  My 2 sisters and mom are running along with a bunch of other people that I know.

I met my family at the expo. My mom and dad and all four siblings don’t get together very often.  My youngest sister lives out of town and my brother is moving this week for a coop job.  We took the opportunity for a few photos.



Erin traveled into town with my sister.  I’ve met her before a few times and I am staying with her when I go to Fit Bloggin’ next week.


My family and friends are all doing the 1/2 marathon (13.1 miles).  I think that the weather will be less than ideal with rain predicted most of the race.  Erin and I are spectating and I’m leaving the house really early to take a train downtown and arrive around 6am.  The race starts at 7am.  I hope everyone has a GREAT run.
