TGIF Foto Friday



Here is my contribution to Nikemom's foto friday.

This is my 6 year old Bryden.  A week or so ago I taught him how to blow a bubble and he thought it was the coolest thing in the world.  We literally spent an hour just blowing bubbles together while watching the Wichita State vs. Pepperdine baseball game.  I like this pic because he is standing next to a mirror and it looks like there are two of him blowing bubbles.

Running
Got a good midweek 7 mile tempo run in on Wednesday and a couple of easy 3 milers.  I have a 10-11 miler planned for tomorrow, but the weather forecast is calling for between 6 and 16 inches of snow in the next 24 hours, so we'll see.  Yeah, blizzard conditions in late March.  Happy  Spring everyone.

We're gettng a spring storm also. Snow in the forcast, but I doubt it will snow where I live (but other places in the state are getting it).

Great pic! I love the image of father and son practicing blowing bubbles, watching the game. That's super!

He Oz, here in Denver we also got the blizzard yesterday. We are on snow day #2. Looks like a treadmill day for me. I love your picture. My 7 year old still hasn't figured out the bubble thing.

What do you mean, "he thinks it is the coolest thing in the world"? It IS!!

Cute picture! Good luck this weekend, I'm holding out for my 14 miles until sunday, hoping this mess that is starting will melt by then! Good luck... hope we aren't stuck in the gym this weekend!

I *did* think there were two of them . . . and I remember that exact joy of being a kid and learning something for the first time. I think I whistled for a week when I first learned how . . .

Best of luck with the run...snow sounds like a total buzz kill.

I remember when my son learned to blow a bubble and before he got it, he'd just blow the whole wad of gum out of his mouth...classic :-))

Awesome photo.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Very cool pic! Aww...sounds like you had a great father-son bonding time!

I would bag the run or do it on the treadmill if you get THAT much snow. You might risk an injury. You could "get-r-done" on the suckmill.

I love your photo Friday feature.
