It was a lot cooler today than we had hoped for to walk 3 miles, but we had fun none the less.
After we walked half way we turned around to finish the second half of the walk. When we got to the 1/2 way point Alex started running! Luckily, Rick wasn't far behind. Jackie joined them too. Here they are on their way back to the trail.
Alex decided he wanted to walk on the way back. This made the trip a little slower, but we was in a better mood. Here was the only "photo op" that we stopped to pose for.
There are elk in this photo preserve. Alex wasn't too interested on the first half, but much more interested on the way back.
There were a few pit stops on the walk. This one was the last one and they were getting low on food. Alex helped the volunteers out by drawing on the boxes. I will let you decide which drawing the volunteers did and which Alex did.
Since Alex was walking on the way back Rick was coming up with games to convince him to walk faster. Rick would hide behind a tree and Alex would run after him and find him.
Alex finally started jumping in the moon walk and having a good time. He wouldn't come out at the end but he did have fun.
We went to Bennigan's for lunch after the walk. Alex had a tough time sitting at the restaurant but he did enjoy his macaroni and cheese!
Alex is learning how to drink out of a straw (and without a straw). Some goes in his mouth and as you will see some comes out!
When you tell Alex to smile at the camera or show his teeth for a picture he tilts his head back. Still a cute picture!
