A very nice day, to be sure.
We got up this morning and I went for a short bike ride. First ride in several weeks - well a few days ago I did get out and rode 2 1/2 miles, but I don't count that as a ride, since I had to turn around and get back to the hospital, to pick up Jason (he was literally done 2 hours earlier than originally planned). Anyway, I got out for a 10 mile ride and it felt good, and when I returned to the house the girls were up and in watching cartoons with Daddy. I think Jason looks forward to Saturday mornings as much as the girls do.
I did have to be the spoiler as we needed to get ready to head over to the University of the Nazarene, where they were holding the Fall Festival (11th annual) and it was something that Linda and the girls were especially looking forward to. We originally planned to be out the door by 10:00, and finally got moving by 10:30.
By the time we arrived there were very few parking places left, and it was quite crowded. Funny thing is, I had not heard of it before, and now it looks like we're already making plans to go next year. There were all kinds of things for the girls to do, and there was even a booth from Rudolph and Sletten (I worked for them from 2005 to 2008). I didn't know any of the guys there, but it was still fun to see them. We stayed for a couple hours then Jason needed to get back to the house. I took him back and left Linda and the girls there, so they could enjoy a couple of other things, like the pony ride. We were all back at the house by 13:00 (1pm) or maybe a few minutes after.
After lunch Jason wanted to head out and get over to Sprint. I needed to take care of some business too, so he and I went together. They were very busy so we ended up just waiting around for a while and then that gave Jason some time to look around. He found a new "toy" to play with, and ended up purchasing a remote controlled robot thing (not sure what else to call it) that he could control from his phone. He was having a great time with it, after it got it home.
Finally the rest of the day was wearing on and then it was dinner time. We had dinner and then I turned on the World Series and suffered through the first few innings and loved the last several. The Giants were all over the Royals, and they have now tied up the series 2 - 2. I do believe that this might go the full seven games, and that's okay by me. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers - Take care and stay positive.
