Community and Time Together

We had a productive weekend, maybe not in terms of school, but we participated in the MDA Walk and was finally able to spend some much needed quality time together.

One of my friends has muscular dystrophy and put together a group for this walk in order to raise funds and awareness.  She is the sweetest girl and has a huge support team behind her.  Together, we were Jillian’s Anteaters.  If you would like more information about Muscular Dystrophy or how to contribute to the cause, please visit mda.org.

There were a ton of booths giving away stuff and activities for families to do.  I was so excited at the Wall-E robot, it was so cute!  There were a lot of different families and groups that came together today for this cause.  All the money donated for the event goes to finding a cure for muscular dystrophy.

It was a 5k walk.  It might have been a hot day, but we knew why we were there and it pushed us to finish.


After the walk, Mark and I went on a date.  It’s been a while since we had any alone time together and this was the first time we could go on a date in a VERY long time.  We may be together a lot, but most of the time we aren’t able to be the couple we usually are.  Mark and I are really affectionate, like to be cute, and talk about personal things and inside jokes all the time.  Because of school and our extra curriculars, we can’t be coupley or talk to each other how we want to.  Sometimes after a while, we just want to be coupley (and lazy) again!  FINALLY we were able to.  We went on a Saturday food adventure and bowling night.  I don’t have pictures from bowling, but I was so close to beating Mark!  I just messed up at the end.  Sigh… gutter balls.

Mark was a little to excited and ate his dessert before I got to take pictures.  We got these desserts at an Italian ice and custard place  and I’m addicted.  It’s so good and it’s different from other desserts I’ve ever eaten.  I had lemon, cherry, and blue raspberry ice and lemon custard.  My favorite part was the lemon custard… SO DELICIOUS!  OMGAHHH.  Mark had a peanut better custard, which tasted like a Reese’s peanut butter cup.  I will definitely be going here more often.  Whoever thought of this is a genius.
