Taylor and I headed to Chicago at the end of the rehab week last week for a function with the Gary Sinise Foundation. Although we weren’t traveling home to Iowa, we were heading to the Midwest, which is always nice.
The first night we got in we went out for dinner with Gary Sinise and his other guest for the weekend, Medal of Honor recipient, Sammy Davis and his wife. We had a delicious dinner and finished the night off with a 23 layered chocolate cake!!
Saturday was the event recognizing the Gary Sinise Foundation and everything the foundation does for veterans. Everyone at the event seemed to have the same belief that we have; Gary Sinise is a standup, big hearted gentleman, who does so much for so many people without looking for anything in return. He is truly helping so many people with the right agenda; one of the most humble people we have been fortunate to work with. We cannot wait for him and his band to come to our hometown August 3rd to put on a concert for our community, which continues to show unwavering support.
HUGE piece of turtle pie and carrot cake. Enormous desserts seemed to be the theme for this weekend!!
At the end of the day today when everyone had left the gym, we hit the track!
Taylor ran a little with the leg set in straight leg mode. Then ran more with the running leg being able to bend at the knee.
Taylor loves the song 22 by Taylor Swift. I think this may be one of the first female artist song that he has liked. Every time we are in the car and it comes on the radio he blasts it!
After a long running session Taylor takes a breather. Getting into shape and building confidence on the running legs one step at a time!
