Martin Luther King Jr. Day & Inauguration Day

Martin Luther King Jr. Day AND Inauguration Day- how we rolled

What a beautiful day for many reasons- one of them being the fabulous clear and warm weather!

I started the day off with a brisk early morning run with puppy, Mina.  It was a nice quiet time in Berkeley as we trotted down MLK just after sunrise to contemplate just how far we all have come.

After I got back home, the activities started.  The girls worked on coloring pages of Martin Luther King Jr. to learn about his messages.

 

Maisy made a book of his teachings and added her own dreams.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day AND Inauguration Day- how we rolled
Everybody would be safe, Everybody would be respectful of each other. Everybody would be kind and nice. Everybody would find love (in their own time) and be friends. Everybody to be helpful to each other.
— Maisy's Dream Message

People of ANY color will be treated equally.

Maisy also said that she thought Mina's dream is that everyone would get their own bone.

After a bit we took a break for breakfast and to watch President Obama's inauguration.  What a birthday present to MLK!  Can you imagine how proud he would be?  We certainly were!

Marveling at the crowds.

Proud girls.

We then kicked it into high gear to get over to San Francisco to join the march/parade leaving the Caltrain Depot heading over to Yerba Buena Gardens for an MLK Day celebration.  It was a fun walk full of energy with friends.

After lunch we headed over to the Museum at the Mint at 5th and Mission to check out the museum. They had free admisson and a special Martin Luther King Jr. exhibit today.  The museum is a wonderful building and the girls loved checking it out.  They are trying to raise funds to have it open more often and to have better exhibits.
