Spring Break: Day One

Our son's college buddy is walking 2,000 miles -- from Minneapolis to Miami! He started his trip today. It's a fundraiser and awareness booster for Haiti. We joined in for the first couple of miles of his walk. If you are so inclined, please send him your good thoughts or prayers for a safe and successful journey!

Our evening event was a wedding (my co-worker's). It was fun to see my co-workers all dressed up and in a party atmosphere instead of work... a nice way to kick-off Spring Break.

"I'm with her."

Wow, I sure am tired after a day that was more fun than it was strenuous. What's up with that??

Yes, I remember meeting someone from the cottage when I was "dressed up" and she said that she almost didn't recognize me with my clothes on....too funny.
lovely dress on a lovely bride. Your son is very generous in his heart...he'll be fit by the time he gets to Miami.
