This morning we all did the Turkey Trot, a 5K run/walk. Several of the Piepmeier gang ran (and did surprisingly well! Without injury!). Maybelle and I walked with my mom, and although this picture makes it look like she walked the whole race herself, Maybelle was actually in the backpack until the last 100 yards. At that point she saw other people speeding up, and she cried, "Run run run!" (which in Maybelle speak sounds like "Wo wo wo!"), so I let her down and she trotted over the finish line. She was applauded, of course, which she seemed to take as her due. She stopped, smiled, and offered her own bit of applause, as well. Like, "Yes, we're celebrating! Everyone's looking at me! That's about right."
