After my Yoga class on Saturday, we went to Port Dalhousie for the afternoon. Julien loves to ride the 5 cent carousel. The first time we went there he was about 8 months old. We've taken him back every year since. This is the first year I actually rode the carousel with him. In the past, I've just ridden in the seat that looks like a sleigh or I've stood beside him. He was so excited because we rode side by side on the horses that go up and down.

His very first visit ever!
I cropped out the back part of me again in an
attempt to look "slimmer".
Sunday morning was a practice run and I had a pretty good run. Sometimes when I run with my clinic, I don't feel like I'm working myself enough. Sunday I just ran with Enz, and we did pretty good. I got in a full 5k, so I was happy. I do need to add more distance to my runs. My clinic instructor says if I keep running 5k, I'll get really good at running 5k, but there won't be any challenge left. I definitely need more challenge! My former clinic instructor seems to think I'll be ready to run a half marathon (21.1k) by spring 2013. Since she believes in me, I best start believing in myself a little more. The half marathon clinic I'll likely take is in November. They only offer them twice a year. Maybe I'll be ready by then. I'll have ran a couple of 10k's by that time.
On Father's Day, I had a BBQ for my father, brother and hubby. To stay on plan, I made a chicken and pork souvlaki dinner. With the souvlaki, I also made vegetable kebabs, Greek salad (with my own dressing), lemon-garlic potatoes and home made banana cake. I ate a lot of meat, veggie kebabs and some of the Greek salad. The rest was off limits! My family also indulged in a special Father's Day cake my sister-in-law brought. All in all it was an enjoyable and yummy dinner! I absolutely love souvlaki and used this marinade to make it and it was so flavorful! Just because it's a special occasion is no reason to go off plan. Just like a boy scout, I am always prepared!

Love these guys!
