A Day in a Year in a Life / Day 017

17/January/2015, Day 017.  Saturday.

The big event of today was that Grump and Sweetie went for a walk.  A LONG walk!  Three miles, to be exact.  They walked from our houses to a shopping center and back, which was a three mile round trip.  And once they got home, they were exhausted!

A few years ago, when we lived in South Carolina, Grump used to regularly walk between five and fifteen miles on the weekend.  As he can barely make three miles now without help, you can see how much he atrophied since moving to central Georgia.

The day started off with some sweet potatoe pancakes with chocolate bits that Sweetie woke up early and made for us all.  After Kuya jumped on Grump to wake him up, we all enjoyed our yummy pancake breakfast.

After breakfast Kuya, Sweetie, and Grump went shopping, mostly to buy diapers and wipes for Dodong.  Back home we had some leftover yummy lentil soup for lunch, then after lunch Sweetie and Grump went for their LONG walk.

Sweetie and Grump did eventually recover enough from their walk for the whole family to go to the Riverside mall, where after a little more shopping we all had dinner at the mexican restaurant.  Lola was happy because she got to eat shrimp again! 

Once home from that adventure we all went to bed early.  If Sweetie and Grump have recovered from their hike by tomorrow, they just may do it again!
