Early B.D. present

Today was really not a photo focused day for me. No big deal! Thought I'd share my early birthday present from Mike. New sneakers:) These ones are cool though. If you notice the soles, they are thicker and different. The sneakers are made so that when you walk on them, the heel and mid sole sink down as though you are walking on sand. The effect is that you have to work a little harder to walk, thus your muscles get stronger over time. I found out about them through a magazine ad and since I was about ready for a new pair anyway, Mike treated me to the early present. And just in time...Monday, we are taking the kids on a field trip to NYC to the Bodies exhibit, real human bodies plasticized and allowing you to see all the muscles, organs, veins, etc. Since our theme has been Brain Power, it should be pretty cool for the kids to see the actual brain (unfortunately, no photography allowed in the exhibit, but I'll be sure to get pictures of other things!) They even have organs that you can pick up and hold (heart, lungs, etc). Looking forward to the day and having new happy feet too!
