I do not like Georgia humidity. I never have, and I don’t think I ever will. Stepping outside your door at 7 in the morning into that sticky weather that instantly makes you feel like you need to go back in and take another shower is awful. So far this year, we’ve been lucky with humidity and heat, but I have a feeling Savannah’s luck has run out. The past few days the heat has been increasing, and the humidity is getting worse. We’re finally starting to hit the 90’s, which I know there are plenty of you that are struggling with high temperatures that you’re not used. I feel for you. I think the 90’s are here to stay. 🙁 The only time I’m not as bothered by temperatures in the 90s are beach days. I can lather on some sun screen and head into the ocean. But if it’s not a beach day, the 90s can leave, along with the humidity. That can leave and never come back.
Just like this morning, it was a gorgeous outside when I got home from work, just hotter, but not unbearable. I thought tonight would be a great night to take a family walk. I love taking family walks but often times we get so wrapped in the night routines that we don’t really make the time for them.
TJ suggested Dylan bring his bike. That plan didn’t work out so well. One thing Dylan is not very confident in is riding his bike, so much so that he still has training wheels (I know, I know, but we’re working on it, I promise). Apparently the training wheels haven’t been staying on very well. They have fallen on once and TJ put them back on. On our first lap, one of the wheels fell and broke, so there was no way we could fix it, so TJ took the other one off and there’s no turning back now, Dylan will be learning to ride his bike from here on out with no training wheels. LOL!
Me and TJ decided to have a little fun with the bike while we helped Dylan wheel it back.
Just in case you didn’t know, you may now be able to tell by this picture, or the one from yesterday with my hubby, and the fact that I can almost ride Dylan’s bike while sitting on the seat, that I’m not very tall. I come at a whopping 4’10.” I know, I’m a frickin’ giant. hahaha!
After that first lap, we dropped the bike off at the house and started our second lap. The second lap went much smoother. Unfortunately, no one else wanted anymore than two laps, so it was in to the house to get the kids ready for bed.
Little did I know, TJ was also exhausted.
Yesterday I went with a friend to a local high school for an Autism Walk. Her soon-to-be stepdaughter has Autism so we walked for her. We started out the walk with her but she wasn’t very into it. After about 1/2 mile she was done so she sat with her mom and me and my friend Beth finished the walk. It’s a fabulous cause and I was so glad to be apart of it.
Once the walk was over they talked about Autism and then brought all the children with Autism to the front to give them medals.
Dakota was not a fan of wearing the medal but she did think it was pretty cool.
Her favorite part of the weekend….getting in the bounce house and having us help her to the top of the slide so she could down. She was so happy and her face is priceless.
We had a great time and can’t wait to do it again next year.
But my next focus, the March for Babies Walk next weekend. Let’s go Real Housewives of the USMC!!!
Have you done any charity walks? What have you done and how did you get started with them?
