Picked Up This Gem in Orlando Today…

I flew down to Orlando this morning to hang out with the family for a few days and celebrate my uncle’s 60th birthday. The parents and I were walking around the park across from our hotel earlier, and stumbled upon this gem…yes, he is walking holding weight plates. Where he found them – and why he decided they were appropriate for his walk – I’m not sure. Regardless…enjoy!

I’m headed to Florida for a little fun with the (extended) family for a few days, but I’ll be back on Tuesday, so you won’t miss out on a playlist next week. Have a great weekend – and good luck to everyone here in DC running the Cherry Blossom 10-Miler this weekend. Maybe if spring decides to grace us with her presence, we’ll even see the blossoms start to … uh … blossom.
