You can probably tell from my exclamation marks that it was a good day :)
Afterwards we went to Cafe Kacao to eat. I would've never chosen this place, but our kids recommended it and it was delicious. I got a massive pancake with mango and blackberries. It's Latin cuisine and the place looks like a dive on the outside, but remember what your momma told you - never judge a book by it's cover! While we were waiting, we stood outside the restaurant on Classen Blvd. and cheered for runners. We had so much fun seeing the smiles on people's faces as we shouted encouragement to them. I really did enjoy that.
Finally, we headed to our son's house for worship and communion. Thankful, so thankful, for times like these!
