Raul went to the marathon for the first time this year! We grew up living near the route, but now we live further so Raul had not been before. He wasn't too impressed, really just wanted to go to the playground, but he did get into it a bit at the end. He even waved to a few people. He and I watched the wheelchair racers finishing on TV while I did his bandages this morning, and he seemed to think that was cool. We also got to see in person two of the runner/wheelchair teams, one of which was the Hoyt team in their final race. We stayed until we saw my mom's friend go by, and then Raul got a reward trip to the playground for being good while at the marathon! He loves the playground!
