I didn’t have a chance earlier this week to write about the fun events of Labor Day Wekened! So here I am writing it in a Friday Faves post!
1) Seeing my the seniors at D.C. play field hockey.
I had been coaching field hockey at a local school for the past 6 years and this is my first season not coaching. Needless to say it wasn’t an easy choice to make mainly because of the relationships with the girls, especially the seniors. Thankfully, I was able to go see their first season game last Friday and they were super duper excited to see us there!
The girls were so excited to see us there was an immediate group hug with the two of us and all the seniors. So sweet, it made my heart melt a bit and it was nice to know that they miss us so much.
2) #RunforTexas Virtual 10k
A bunch of my friends on Instagram were reposting information on a virtual 5k/10k race where all the proceeds would 100% go to the people affected by hurricane Harvey.
I looked up the race and they were planning on hosting it September 1-4 (Labor Day Weekend). When I looked at the prices I was stoked because the 5k was $5 and the 10k was $10 which was totally affordable for anyone to run and donate to a great cause.
It was really cool to here that overall we raised about $55,000 for Harvey Relief.
3) The Franklin Institute Mirror Maze
The hubby told me he really wanted to go to the Mirror Maze exhibit at the Franklin Institute so we went to check it out because it was the last day and he really wanted go to it. We had a fun time racing through the maze. Oh and I won!
4) Franklin Fountain: Lightning Rod Sundae
We love a good ice cream sundae and definitely if it is from Franklin Fountain which is an old fashion ice cream shop in Old City Philadelphia.
We decided to order an ice cream sundae that we hadn’t tried before and this one was the Lightening Rod. It was delicious.
5) Big A** Slices Pizza
Did did dinner and dessert in reverse because after Frankin Fountain we got pizza from Big A** Slices because as you can see from the picture below the slices are BIG! And honestly, as someone that consumes pizza pretty regularly it was really good! I definitely want to go there again soon!
6) Taking Lola to Valley Green Trail
My dad plays the accordion and him and his girlfriend love going to the Valley Green Trail so he can play his accordion for all the runners, families, etc. We decided to go down there for a little bit last Saturday morning and bring Lola.
She had a blast! She got to see a lot of people and get tons of pets. She also went for a 1 mile run with Brian and she loved it. It also left for one pooped pooch!
