they've seen their last run/jog/walk

poor tired shoes ...
Let's face it ... I don't really run ... it's more of a lumber/jog. My poor shoes died when we got home from today's excursion. I went to kick them off and the sole pulled away from the shoe on the left and the duct tape that was holding the right one together came off ... guess I'll be getting some new ones ... dang!

We took a drive this morning and measured a few routes around my neighborhood and this afternoon we went on a 2 mile walk/jog. The boys rode their bikes and did a great job staying with me! A few parts there was no sidewalk and they had to stay far away from the white line ... It was long and hard and uphill sometimes... there was very little whining and only one pit stop at taco bell for a drink of water ... (note to self: bring a bottle to share!)

So, when we got home they got a reward for being troopers!!
my little troopers!!

It sounds like they should have had their last long ago! I like the font changes too, how did you do the big pic and the photo collage in the love post below? I need some tips!
