Off to the races!

The other day mom and dad ran the Boston half marathon.  The day before we went on a little adventure to scout out the race and to pick up their numbers at the registration tent. Above is a picture of us on our way to public transportation.
The "T" was a little crowded so dad had to carry me - notice he also has a mug of coffee!
We helped our pawrents pick up their race number at the registration tent:


There were a lot of helpful people there...but not a lot of treats...
Is this not the most giant water bottle you have ever seen?!

The is what the finish line looked like:
...I decided to mark the spot just in case my pawrents got lost....
Thanks to me they did not.

Do you ride on the T a lot? I think it would be too scary for me.

Good day for a long walkie. Glad you marked the spot, though, cause peoples can tend to get lost.

Slobbers,

Wooo- th 2 leggededs did the Boston Marathon? How cool. Specially if they drank that whole bottle of water, would make them run fast as fast for the finishing line, he,he!!! I had to avert my eyes at the last picture...um talking of pictures I think Lacie is sending you a picture? Nice froxie but I'm having a memory relapse over it and Mom is giggling and giggling at Dewey's remark cos she always thinks that too (whatever that means).

Wiry wags, Eric (and his Mom still laughing) x x

Toffee... The marking you made is definitely helpful! Mom & dad, good luck for The half marathon!!

We tell you our secret. Our dad used two software (Nicon NX and Photoshop) to do some sort of magic thingy on our brudder's photos... hehehe.

My folks get confused after spending 6 years in Boston then suddenly having to call the train the "El." What gives? AND us canines can't ride the El! Lame-O.

Who is this Marathon guy that all the humans keep running from? My folks run away from him too! Confused.

PS- Socks are still in it...
