What a weekend!!!!! I enjoyed being with family so much!!!!! Alyssa and I arrived at my sister's house Friday night around 7 pm. She planned a going away party for my nephew Shane who is heading to boot camp in California, today actually. She made the best homemade spaghetti ever!!!! My Mom and Ray made the trip also to say theirs goodbye's. After we ate, we sat around together reminiscing about old times and just enjoyed being together as a family. I don't think I have laughed that hard for a long time...we really are a bunch of nuts!!!!!
Saturday morning we were up at 5am...the kids had a race to run. My daughters Alyssa and Kara signed up for the Monster dash marathon a couple months ago. This is Kara's first race ever. Her sister, Alyssa the marathon runner, talked her into it. Kara didn't really know what to expect...I thought this will be the race that will determine if she HATES running or LOVES it!!!! And guess what....SHE LOVES IT!!!! My daughters both have had their preferred sports. Kara's has always been riding and showing horses. Alyssa did show horses for about 5 years but learned that running was her passion. Well, Alyssa finally got Kara to join her in running....good going Alyssa...you are persistent. At the party, Kara talked Shane into running the race with them. So his signed up and ran his little heart out......he is such a good sport.
Alyssa finishing her race...run liddy run, we are so proud of you!!!!!
Well, that's about it....now I'm back home and priming...I will have pictures to share later. Have a great day everyone....and if you would please say a prayer for my nephew Shane...I would greatly appreciate it!!!!! God Bless....Rhonda
