We participated in the Bridge Run this morning. He ran the first mile by himself, which was pretty impressive. I had to argue with him to get into the stroller since he wanted to keep going, but as soon as he took a seat he downed his water bottle and enjoyed the ride.
At the end there were cookies and chocolate milk. Plus we received medals! He had an amazing time, which made the whole thing worth it.

 It's the weekend and what better way to start it than a trip to the Renaissance Festival?
We were only there for a few hours, but the little one had an amazing time running around with the other kids and visiting the mermaid.

Anyone who purchased the DLC for Xenoblade Chronicles 2 received access to their Torna expansion (which is also a stand alone game) a week early. I downloaded it this morning and played for a bit on lunch.

When you tell your kid to use his fork with his spaghetti and he ends up with a mouthful....

My schedule is packed. There's no time to leave for lunch between meetings so I watched some of the Apple Event during breaks I had.

There is a lot of fog out there this morning.

I brought in a giant stack of coupons the mailman brought us. They're slowly disappearing at work...

We swung by Microcenter yesterday, which is my absolute favorite store. They had the 2017 AIY Voice kit on sale for $5 so I picked one up. I'd love the vision kit, but I can settle for the voice one.
Getting everything set up and connected took quite a bit longer than it should have. My 3 year old helper was very concerned about giving up the giant button, playing with the wires, and in general investigating all of the things.
The whole assembly really taxed his patience, but he did well. We finally were able to connect it to a keyboard and monitor for the final configuration.
Once it was up and he was able to talk to it once he was happy, and ready to move onto the next thing.
