Jackson and I got up early this past Saturday and headed over to the Houston Zoo to help raise money for the Easter Seals as part of their Walk With Me event!
|Cold but ready to go!|
It was SO cold, but I bundled Jackson up and we got ready to walk! It was such a beautiful day and I really enjoyed being able walk around the zoo before it opened to the public. We even got to see many of the zookeepers in the habitats with the animals cleaning up and feeding them.
|Red faced, but feeling accomplished.|
I’m so proud of myself for having finished my first 5K, especially since it was for such a great cause. We raised $65 for Easter Seals this year…but next year I think we will have a much more ambitious goal..and start fundraising early to achieve it.
My success also makes me want to do jogging a lot more often. I felt great afterward…and I want to lose some more weight and I know regular jogging/running is the ticket. 🙂
Jackson and I really enjoyed checking out the zoo after we had completed the event especially since it had warmed up.
|Seeing the fish in the aquarium is always his favorite part.|
Later that afternoon Jackson and I had the pleasure of having lunch with the sweet folks from Tillamook Cheese which I’ll tell you all about in a fun post later this week!
