I went back to work last Thursday hoping to make it through the morning. I lasted all day. I started regretting that decision about 3:55pm.
Worked Friday morning, errands in the afternoon, home to pack up Ryan and William. They drove to Missouri with my brother, Reuben for our family weekend.
Elizabeth and I stayed home, I had committed to being part of a "Relay for Life" team on Friday night. It rained most of the time we were there, but spirits were still high!
This was my last-minute attempt to honor my friends who have survived cancer.
(please do not let this poorly decorated bag in any way demonstrate my love for you!)
Saturday morning we were up, packed and off to the first of my 5k commitments of the summer. After being sick, and pretty much slacking on the training, I am comfortable with my performance. It was so nice to have my friends there supporting me. As a matter of fact, I AM getting ready for summer sandal season!!
After the race, Elizabeth and I hopped in the car and headed to Missouri ourselves. We had a delicious lunch at Panera Bread, and then nothing but business. Real road-trippers. That's us. oh, except for that one little side trip to T.J. Maxx...
Angle Family Fun Day...never to disappoint! Uncle Simon and Uncle Kasey (as Isabelle calls her), were fantastic host. Even though it seems to be hard to fit these weekends into every one's busy schedules, and the pain the parents go through on some of the grueling drives, Everyone has a good time, and I know, when our kids are grown, we will be so happy that we spent this time together. Really.
The girls had matching polka-dot shirts. Ashley was OVER family weekend.
She's still cute!
