(Oh, and the reason Tommy is pantsless is because I was in the middle of changing a diaper when everyone lined up for thepicture, so I had to sprint back with my pantsless child and jump in the photo. I did put his pants on before the walk!)
It's okay, though, because these shoes are magical. I bought them eight years ago, which is an unheard of lifespan for flip flops. I found them at the J. Crew outlet and let me tell you, if I found them again, I would buy every single pair JUST IN CASE. These shoes have walked across the Brooklyn Bridge, around NYC, and back across the bridge to Brooklyn, the whole while with Shane chastising me for not wearing proper shoes. But at the end of the night, guess who was complaining of sore feet and blisters? NOT ME. These shoes have walked through the jungles of Belize, with our guide chastising me for not wearing snake protective footwear. But I showed him by, you know, not getting bitten by any venomous snakes.
These shoes have never let me down. My only complaint is that I don't own them in every single color, because the fact that they're red prevents me from wearing them every single day.
So, at the end of almost six miles, my feet felt no worse the wear. Now, my back and shoulders? Well, that's another story...
