Fun Things

Other fun things happened on honey day (and the day after):

Grandma rode the jetski! Peter basically told her it was her turn to ride and she got right on and hung on like a champ. Grandpa gave her a lovely, not too fast ride around the lake.

The kids played outside all day, while we did our honey extraction. They'd come in and out for turns to crank the extractor and lick spilled honey off the table. Then at one point, Jasper and Kivi came in after jumping on the trampoline looking like this:

We were laughing so hard! They said they decided to switch suits while jumping on the trampoline!

The You Go Girl Run our small group ran was actually the day after Honey Day. But it still felt like we were in the middle of it, because stuff was everywhere, and we hadn't canned the honey yet. So... our crazy small group, while we were eating our progressive dinner, (I think Shari started the idea) decided that we should all do a 10K together. I, the girl who hates to run, was anti the idea. But peer pressure won. I got in 3 practice runs - a 1/2 mile, 1 mile, and 3 mile (which I believe is 1/2 of a 10K) with the small group girls before the race.

Some of the guys dressed in pink and ran along side us. Peter was so great, he had a pink headband that read, "In my dreams I'm a Kenyan" and a 100% Rough and Tough Cowgirl shirt. He went my slow little pace the whole way and was super supportive, so were all our kids who came with Poppie in the bus and Grandma and Grandpa too! They were all there at the 3 1/2 mile point waving flags and cheering us on - they were so cute!

Here's our little group! And our great guys! So I did it - a 10K and I ran the whole thing. I never have to do that again! Did I mention that it was freezing cold and raining? I was blind the whole first mile while the mascara ran into my eyeballs and all down my face - I'm sure by the end I looked like a bruised pinata.
