My name is Lindsay and this is just so I don't feel guilty for not keeping a written journal...

new wheels

I could tell the whole, detailed story of how I had the strong impression that I needed to get Garret out with me on my runs.  And how I had to just shrug my shoulders and figure it wasn't meant to be, for now, when researching the cost of large, handicap-friendly strollers.  And how my parents showed up, a few weeks later, with an early Christmas/birthday present.  And how I'm stumped on how to thank them enough...  

But, for now, let's look at some pics-


Yesterday was our first run and though it was slow and more work for me, it felt GREAT.  Garret giggled and flailed.  I would stop to check his mood and each time he would rock forward with a grin, seeming to say- 'Keep going!'.   

And this afternoon, just minutes after walking in from the bus, Garret went to the stroller, sat down, and laughed with anticipation.  'Sorry, munchkin.  We can't go when Daddy's gone, but we'll go again real soon...'

I guess the best way to thank you, Mom and Dad, is to use it, use it, use it.
And we will, we will, we will!!!  :)

You guys can be Team Zook! (You know, kind of like Team Hoyt.) You just need to start running marathons and doing triathlons. :)

Yeah, this made me tear up too! I love how you are looking at him in the bottom picture, so much love. I love YOU so much, Lindsay, and I MISS YOU! Enjoy your mommy/son runs!! What a beautiful blessing for the two of you.

Sweet. That's what Moms and Dads are for, to fulfill wishes of their grateful kids.

That's awesome! A great Christmas story.

T'was fun and blessings called "Craig's List" get the credit. Did you notice how we couldn't wait till Christmas? No discipline in this house. And if you think the stroller is great, wait till you see the cap I crocheted for Brenda's bus driver. Totally out-did my self there! ;D

Allright Lindsay, some of us do want to hear the whole, long story of it all! :) And thanks for making the pregnant woman cry. That is my favorite story ever.
