A Day on the Town

We spent the day enjoying the beautiful weather and making a trip in to the city. 

Steve ran in the Race for the Cure early this morning.  He had run this race many years ago and started it back up last year, after his sister-in-law was disgnosed with breast cancer.  Maribeth was there today, walking with other survivors.  The girls and I met up with them after the races.  Rachel was delighted by the crowd of many thousand, all dressed in PINK!  There were pink clothes, pink balloons, pink tutus on dogs, pink golf carts, and a pink fire truck.
The fire truck was pretty cool.  It was entirely covered with signatures and messages about cancer victims and survivors. 
The girls and I met Aunt Robie at one of our favorite "special" restaurants - P.F. Chang's.
Noodles are always a welcome meal!  Before we went inside we admired this praying mantis and talked about what cool bugs they are.
Then it was off for some shopping.  Last week's sudden cold snap made us notice that the girls were rather unprepared for winter, as neither of them had long-sleeved T-shirts or leggings.  So we took care of that today. 

Now we're back home, spending a quiet evening at home.  Ahh....
