Seaport River Run

70 degrees, dogwoods blooming, kiddies in the stroller with the hubby long-gone, smiley by my side...ah, the sweet feeling of a good Saturday run.
Yesterday, we did the Seaport River run 10k in Lewiston. It was a beautiful day (warmest day yet of the season). On this particular run, when you get to the end of the run you get a boat ride back to the start. It was sooo much fun. Smiley was over-heating for the majority of the run. (I think he needs to lose more of his winter coat.) Twice I had to stop for him to get a drink and to dip himself in the river. He was pretty exhausted by the end.
As for the Rickster...he pulled a 44 min flat pushing the stroller(didn't even phase him!). I did my own pace and did a 52 min. We had a great time and polished off the day with a little yard work and a swim.
Oh, how I love the longer days of spring with nice weather and the fun of spending time with my family!

If you look closely, you can see:

Poppy's pointing at a purple polka-dotted oliphant.

And in the last picture:
a sweaty-headed man with two kids. :)

(Now that I read my comment...why do we call them "polka-dots"? Why not just spots, or speckles, or...dots...why polka dots? Isn't that a type of dance...hmmm...wikipedia, here I come?)

Look at the first picture closely: No wonder Will has hair like he does...It must come from the Edge side.
