Avi is napping playing his drums, so I’m enjoying a quiet percussive afternoon back at home after a busy morning.
First things first: thanks to hockey, we have a nice supply of pucks in the freezer at all times. I was able to ice my foot last night and walk on it pretty well today. Probably won’t try running for another couple days, but I’m pretty sure it isn’t broken and that’s the most important part.
So we did indeed make it to Touch-A-Truck, despite the threat (and the actuality) of rain.

Whereas mine was waiting for me when I got home:
