Great Mother's Day Weekend

Sure, the weather wasn't perfect this weekend, but we made the best of it for Mother's Day.  It was a fun weekend and we did everything that Dawn loves to do.  Including going to the park yesterday in between the rain.
I got in a 4 mile run on Friday and my foot continues to feel better.  Icing after the run really helps do the trick.  I always get annoyed about icing and then forget to ice injuries, but it does make such a difference.  Anyway, that was the longest run in about a month.  I am planning a slow and steady rebuild, but getting back into the running game.  I am also changing up my shoes to allow for more room in the toe-box since that seems to be the trigger point for some of the issues.  Going with New Balance and Altra shoes.  It will be my first time wearing Altras.
Friday was a pretty low key day with naps then dinner and grocery shopping.  Saturday I got the kids up and let Dawn sleep in.  Then we got breakfast and I came back to mow and get the yard cleaned up before more rain Saturday night and Sunday. After naps Saturday we traveled north and met Dawn's family at the Buckeye Express Diner off of I-71.  Great burgers and you get to eat in the train!
Afterward we went outside to play on the huge grassy hills.  Dawn's mom bought some really sweet foam glider planes so we had fun with those and Summer played with bubbles.  We probably looked silly, but we were having a blast before we parted ways and went back to our respective homes.  I got a babysitter and Dawn and I went out Saturday evening.  
Sunday was more sleeping in for Dawn while we made breakfast.  We hung out around the house and then went to a park for sun followed by family nap time then dinner with the family. It was a gray day, but we did manage to squeeze in the park before the rain returned.
More rain today! That rain in Northern Indiana will be sliding into Central Ohio for the day ahead.
So another cloudy, damp, and cool day today with on and off drizzle and light rain showers and highs in the 50s. You will probably want to take a jacket for today and possibly Tuesday. We will slowly warm up this week and we will likely be in the 80s by next weekend. Tuesday morning will have temps in the lower 40s with mostly/partly cloudy skies. The disturbance bringing us our Monday rain will move east, so Eastern Ohio could see some spotty rain on Tuesday and Western Ohio will get into more sun Tuesday with highs in the mid-lower 60s. We will see a weak system Wednesday into Thursday so there is a slight chance of rain. Highs in the upper 60s Wednesday and then lower 70s on Thursday. Friday will bring a better chance for scattered showers and storms. Our temps will warm into the upper 70s on Friday and then into the lower 80s by next weekend. Higher humidity will also return next weekend. The forecast models are split on rain for next weekend, so let's keep a low chance of rain in the forecast and stay tuned as we fine-tune the weekend details as new data is available. Have a good one!
