What is a weekend without a lil' Settlers?
Mimi and Gwen
Sunday lunch...3 families...12 kids...lots of delicious food...several indecent exposures...34 screams in response to said exposures...one bloody nose.
Jason the marathon runner and Steve with his new grill.
Thank you economic stimulus check yet to be received.
Whipper Snapper Racers
Clark leading the girls in some pre-race stretches.
Josie and Ella's first ribbons ever:)
Racing cut into Gwen's naptime.....she couldn't make it home.
Waiting at the 25 mile marker after one of many weekend downpours.
Jason and Greg finished the marathon in 4:08. And it turns out I can no longer blame my marathon misty eyes on pregnancy hormones. I am just absolutely amazed by people's determination. To the point of tears. And so, in honor of the determination of the runners of marathons......and yes, even half marathons, I will show my own determination by ceasing to gorge myself on brownies and homemade ice cream as I have all weekend. As soon as I'm finished with that last little bit down in the freezer....Mmmmmm:)
