Morning Run

Anthony went running with Grandpa again this morning. The first time was a week or so ago, and this was the second.

Last time Anthony just did one lap around the lake – about four-tenths of a mile – but today he did three laps. (My dad does six laps – two and a half miles – most mornings)

I got down there with my camera as they were finishing the first lap. These pictures are just about identical to the ones before, but I love'em anyway. I may be a biased daddy, but Anthony is just so cute when he runs...

“Hi Daddy!”

I thought he might stop again after just the one lap, but he merrily continued on for another....

Far Side of the Lake

He stayed in front of Grandpa for the two laps, but paused before doing one more lap. After three, he called it quits. That's better than my camera battery, which called it quits right after I took that last shot.

We're heading to Vancouver tomorrow, meeting up with Fumie for a week of sightseeing in Vancouver and Whistler, and to pay a visit to the lady that hosted Fumie's first homestay 15 or so years ago. I'm not sure whether I'll be able to post. We'll see....
