The mayor of DC helped our non-profit partner secure the OCTO offices for camp, so we have a super nice facility... the walls are white boards, that's pretty awesome :-)
Here I am helping to get the facility's computers tucked safely away before we brought in our own equipment:
After setup day, the WonderTwins and Evan went out to dinner and then wandered around downtown Alexandria by the waterfront. I fell (what else is new) and feel like I sprained my ankle pretty bad (and maybe my partner's back where I caught myself with my good wrist), but we still managed to have fun.
First, my partner found a cool car:
had a found a cow!
And finally, I took a propeller to the head. Ouch!
We also had the opportunity to make some questionable stops in our wanderings...
But that's a story for another day...
Once we made it back to the hotel, my ankle was crazy super swollen (usually, I have actual ankles):
My partner filled one of my room's (exceedingly clean) trash cans with ice and water and made me ice it. A lot. And he stayed with me to make sure I actually did it (yeah, it seriously hurt enough for me to have probably not have done it more than once like he made me do it).
Here's a pic I took after he finally let me take my foot out of the water:
The redness is from the ice, but I think it looks a little less swollen. I'm glad my partner has sports medicine knowledge. For realz.
