On Saturday morning, we went to Polaris so I could run the MommyMile 5K. I had won a free entry from Social Moms Around Columbus and couldn't pass up a chance to run a 5K with baby girl #2. It was a fun race, despite not being an actual 5K, and there were lots of booths and activities set up that kept Lucy occupied. Afterwards, we drove over to Worthington and walked around the farmers' market, the first outdoor one of the season. Todd finished making the cake during Lucy's naptime and we did some housework and then relaxed the rest of the day.

This cake is massive...and delicious!
There were several layers....chocolate peanut butter ganache, peanut butter frosting, chocolate cake, and peanut butter cheesecake
On Mother's Day, we went to church and the grocery store and then Todd got lunch ready for a picnic he planned at the Topiary Park near downtown Columbus. Neither one of us had ever been there before and it was a beautiful park where the topiary was a representation of a painting. Lucy loved walking around and checking out all the different shrubs and bushes to see what they were supposed to be. Her favorite, of course, were the dogs and the monkey. She was a little disappointed there wasn't a playground at the park so we went a few blocks over to let her ride the carousel at Columbus Commons. We ended our weekend by taking my parents out for ice cream at Graeter's to celebrate Mother's Day with my mom.
