Dara is one of the oldest athletes still competing in the Olympics. She won silver in Beijing. She was raising money for Joe Dimaggio by speaking at Memorial Hospital. She didn't get to come to everyones room but all the nurses made sure she came to Lee's because they knew Lee is very inspirational. She talked to them for a while about herself and asked them questions. They said was very friendly and that she works out 5 times a week so you can imagine her body! All muscles!
Lee told me that he even got to hold the silver medal, how special...for such a special person!
YOU ARE SO STRONG LEE!! WE LOVE YOU!!

Eduardo ran the "elite 5K" run in 23.17 and Ana Maria and I ran/walk the 5k with Coach Cox's wife, Meredith. After the race, we stayed and walked around to see the many vendors for free stuff and food. We saw many friends and Ana Maria even ran a Kids Dash (which is the video). It was a very fun day!

Ana Maria couldn't get enough of all of the animals. She ran from one animal to the next and was so excited the whole time! When we left, her and Owen had a tough time leaving but we said "PIZZA" and they were ready! We left Farm Friends and walked from Ambre's house to get pizza. It was a fun afternoon and night!!
Owen and Ana Maria trying out their new double stroller...ready to get pizza!

Ana Maria can talk, talk, talk! We are not understanding anything she is saying, but she is trying. So far, the only thing we can understand that she is saying is, mama, and agua. We'll see what is next. Here is a cute video from lunch today of her having fun with a conversation and being silly!
