First: TC Marathon Cheering Outfit...
So I'm STILL not sure if I'm renting an animal outfit for the marathon this year. The weather looks to be OK, so that would lead me to rent one. But my parents will be up for the first time, I'll be running around with Henry, we'll be hopping in and out of our cars, and it's harder to deal with a large bulky costume on top of all of that. Add all of that to the fact that it's hard to see people with that big bird head on, and I'm LEANING towards not renting a costume this year. Maybe I'll just cheer in the Tutti Frutti shorts:
Second: Animal Crackers...
I tweeted something about liking animal crackers about 2 months ago. Brandon G, someone who I nearly met in person about 2 years ago, tweeted me saying that he flies a lot, and he has a collection of small animal cracker packages from all of his flights. Then he tweeted asking for my address because he wanted to send them to me! Sure, stranger from the internet, send me your uneaten food!
No seriously, I gave him my address and soon I got a small package in the mail. On top was this note:
Dear Steve (in a Speedo)
Please enjoy the animal crackers. Yes, Brandon was serious.
They'll be power food for you, Pharmie, and Henry (when he can eat them).
Hope you meet you in person sometime!!
Love, Team Baby Dino

And underneath was 14 packages of animal crackers with airline stickers all over them:
Thanks Theresa and Brandon!!! You guys are too funny! :)
Third: Root Beer Journal...
Henry, Pharmie, and I stopped at "Minnesota's Largest Candy Store" last weekend. I left with a case of assorted root beers and sodas:
Oh, and if you have a soda or root beer that I MUST TRY, stop by my root beer blog and let me know! Thanks!
