Splash and Dash-2008

Friday night was my birthday. I turned 30! Fred thought it would be an excellent idea if we ran a race to celebrate. We ran the FitCity Splash and Dash in Memphis. Everyone minus Fred participated in the "short" race, which was a 2 mile run and a 150 yard swim. Fred did the long race...a 2 mile run, 150 yard swim and then another 2 mile run and 150 yard swim. Here we are before the race. (On a side note I would like to add something...You can see from this picture that I am slightly in front of Fred. Well, shortly after this picture was taken he asked me to please get behind him before the race funny!! He thought I'd slow him down!! hehehe!) Just getting started! Fred and Corey are LONG gone!! Fred is finishing up his second half of the race...After the race we were all smiles. The s and l on our arms stands for short race and long race. Mine is still visible.
They also wrote our age on our calf muscle. I proudly told them I was 30!! Again, the 30 is still on my calf!!

Here we all are still smiling at the end! What fun!! Thanks to Fred, Renee, Tim, Dale, Liz, Zach, Tori and Lee for helping cheer us on and watching our children! What a fun weekend! I will always remember my 30th birthday party!!

Birthday cake at Neely's BBQ in Memphis...yummy!!Thanks also to all of you who called, sent cards and e-mails. You will never know how special you made this day for me!

I finally got it done...

Fred's sister took some of the most precious pictures of the boys. She ordered these huge prints to check her camera. I had them mounted on foam boad and used artist clips to hang them. She gave them to me this summer and I'm just now getting around to it! I am so pleased with them! Great work, Liz!! (Sorry the picture of the picture is not the best quality, but you get the idea!!) Thanks to Aunt Janice for taking them to Hobby Lobby and having them put on tag board and then footing the bill!!
