Today was a very good day ...

The sun was shining brightly this morning when I finally dragged myself out of bed.  Already I knew it would be a good day (despite the fact that I had to drag myself out of bed).  So Alex, Honey, and I headed to the bike trail to take advantage of the mild weather before the rains moved in.  After all, we have all winter long to be stuck inside the gym.  

Originally I hadn't planned to take my camera.  It is hard to run with a camera around your neck.  But the idea that I might miss a good photo was too great.  :)  Plus I didn't really think I'd be doing that much running with Alex and Honey with me.  Turns out I'm so glad that I took my camera with me, because Alex was soooo cooperative today.  He even asked me multiple times to stop and take his picture.
Alex & Honey
Taking a photo of a child is hard enough for me, but throw a dog into the mix and yikes!  But isn't she pretty with the foam around her mouth and her tongue hanging off the side?  I think she sees a squirrel.  :)

Alex & Honey
On the way back Alex insisted on holding the leash.  He did pretty well considering Honey weighs almost three times more than he does.

Alex's big leaf
Along the way we found this HUGE leaf.  I told Alex I thought it was as big as his head so he was comparing.

Once we got home we had some time before he had to eat lunch and get ready for school, so we raked up some leaves in the back yard and had some fun.

He jumped ... he ran ... he threw leaves in the air ... and at me ... and at Honey ... he stuffed leaves down his shirt ... and discovered that wasn't such a good idea ... he buried himself ... body first ... and head first ... then ran and jumped some more.
