I ran some errands after work/paid bills etc... Then our family headed over to my parents for my Dad's birthday. He wanted Lobster for dinner so we steamed 10 lobsters outside and were actually able to eat outside since the weather warmed up! He got a lot of Lowes gift cards and decided to buy a fire-pit with the money :) Noah and Elijah ran around in the driveway chasing Riley, road their bikes and skateboards and had a ton fun!

start building a patio.
Their 4 year old Maltese Riley. He is a runt
(about 5 pounds) and LOVES Elijah!
I was up until 1 in the morning waiting to see the hubs and gave up and went to bed. I never did ask him what time he got home. I then got up for the day at 6:30. Let me start with this - I need 9 hours of sleep each night to function correctly. Elijah and I took the hubs truck to the tire place for a new set and my parents picked us up there at 8 a.m. We went to the Bagel Cafe in Camden for breakfast then headed over to the Episcopal church where the MS Walk was starting (and ending).

Up fairly early again to drive to Bangor (a 3 hour 20 minute round trip drive) for the Walk for Autism. This was an awesome event. My friend Heather's youngest boy has autism. Her blog the A-Word can be found here: www.livingwithautism-brian.blogspot.com . (The team raise a little under $1,000)
Check it out! Her posts are touching, inspirational and educational!
Photos galore ensuing again:

Now I am awaiting my first patient of the day.
What did you do this weekend?
Do you have any charity walks you do/raise money for?
