What's Normal!?

Today the sun came out!! In the NW that's a TREASURED thing & you IMMEDIATELY drop what you are doing & get outside to do ANYTHING!!!  Lucky for me, I didnt spend that time picking weeds, instead I went on a 3+ mile walk/jog with Charlotte.  
She complained only once, but there was nothing we could do, we had to get back to the car :)  Here we are with the cherry trees in bloom & the Steel Bridge behind us.  Portland - Bridge City (Willamette River cuts through the city).  Afterwards, she fell asleep in the car.  Too much exercise for a child with arthritis?  Is that her normal!?
