I had high hopes for a good finish time for this Country Music Festival Marathon... the hope was diminished at mile 17. Shelli and I did good at first. We were keeping our pace time well. It was hot but doable. Then We hit mile 16-17. We were running in an area with no shade and the mid morning sun had come up, and no water station for 2 miles. I started to struggle. I kept going with my sweet friends encouragement. Then at mile 19 I was really struggling. The heat was melting me. They said on the course that it was over 90 degrees. It seriously felt like it. At mile 21 I tossed my cookies as they say and I really struggled to stay vertical. I didn't think I could finish... I was soooo hot. I ended up walking the majority of the last 4 miles...what a disappointment. I was so mad at my self, but I was really struggling not to pass out. I finished with a time that isn't even worth mentioning. But on a positive note, the weekend was super fun. We had a free concert with Billy Currington and that was great, the food was great and we had fun with our great friends. I guess I just couldn't take the heat.

Yep it's true my little girl is 11. We had a great birthday party. We did a Twilight theme which included a kiss the Edward game, trivia, blood juice and of course the viewing of the movie. It was super fun... I think I had as much fun as she did. Two of her friends conspired to each get her a webkin, one a lamb and the other the lion. "So the lion fell in love with the lamb..." for you non Twilight fans that is a line from the book and movie. I thought that was super creative of her friends. A lot of fun... Happy Birthday Bansie!

I was downloading some pictures and I found this cute one of Abigail. I find it funny because every spring I have to buy new hand tools to garden. Either I can't find them or they are rusted and broken. After viewing this photo it has become very clear to me why that is. Don't sweat the small stuff, right?
