Runners, the next generation

There has been an explosion of new babies among my college cross country teammates. I last saw Jen and Amy at Suzanne's wedding in March. At the time, baby Addison was just a couple months old, and baby Jack was still residing internally.

Since I was going to be in St. Louis, Amy arranged to make a trip here with Jack so we could all get togther again with all the babies present. We met downtown at a creperie for breakfast (Sierra opted to stay home with her dad), where we juggled babies between bites of breakfast, which was delicious.

I'm so glad we had decided on a lower key afternoon. We went to the running store and back to Jen's for a bit and then headed to my in law's place. We spent the afternoon lounging, chatting, letting the babies swim, and juggling various napping babies.

After dinner, we had a brief mei tai lesson (Jen wants to learn back carries!) and then my friends and their little ones had to head out. :-(

(I'm sure I'll see Jen this winter, and we've started talking about a larger cross country reunion for next summer that I hope materializes)
