Mother's Day Weekend

I had a great weekend...it was super busy, but it was all fun stuff! :)

Friday at 6pm, I finished my 24 Hour Famine!  Truly it wasn't that horrible and I wasn't that hungry...well, until about 5pm when I knew I only had an hour to go!  We broke our famine with a cookout at our Youth Pastor's community pool.  Too cold to swim, but the steak was great!  Of course, I told him he could probably have grilled my shoe and it would've tasted good at that point! ;)

Saturday morning, we were up bright & early for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.  My sister & Dylan ran the 5K...I walked the 5K.  It was incredible to see so many people out for this event.  Their goal was 12,000.  Not sure if they met or exceeded it, but there were A LOT of people there!

My sis, her friend Julie, me & Dylan - before the race

LOTS of people in front of me - and there were just as many behind me!

After the race!
I think what suprised me the most was how many young Survivor's I saw.  Which on one hand is sad...but also a reason to be excited because they SURVIVED!

After the race, Alyson had a t-ball game...and after that Dylan had a soccer game.  I was literally at home for about 5-10 minute increments!

Then we headed to the Spring Folly...which is one of my favorite events!

Trouble #1, 2 & 3 - headed off to who knows where...sometimes its better to not know what they are up to! ;)

 
These are my BFF's god-sons! They were enjoying the ice cream...as you can see the one on the right there was more interested in the ice cream than allowing me to get a good pic!

After all that fun on Saturday, I was ready to crash by 9:15!!! It was a fun, tiring day!!!

Yesterday, was pretty low-key.  Church...lunch at home...we watched Megamind and then I spent the afternoon reading....then I went to Target & Wal-Mart by myself...which is pretty much a gift to me, since I didn't have to spend 20 minutes in the video game section of each store or trying to track Dylan down in the fishing area! :)

We are officially celebrating Mother's Day tonight - my brother-in-law had to work night shift this weekend...and as it turns out, Alyson was sick all day yesterday! Happy Mother's Day to my sister! ;)

Hope you had a great Mother's Day either as a mother or celebrating with your mother!

I'm glad you had a great Mother's Day!

If I didn't know any better from these pics, I'd guess it was summer! Sure feels like it today!

Congrats on finishing the race! My mom said it was very inspiring.
