Exciting Saturday!!

Tomorrow is a big day for our city. There is a brand new marathon. They expected a total of 2500 entries (for all events) and there are 9000 registered. We don't have much traffic here, but tomorrow will be a HUGE impact! What really got me about the whole thing is the marathon will be going down our street. We live on one of those side streets where the only traffic we have is people that live here. It's not a cut through at all...BUT the marathon is cutting through. Unfortunately we won't be home! We are going to an awesome family event that goes all day long. I did take some signs left over from Tuesday's local elections, turned them inside out, and put out some signs of encouragement for the runners. Some people got port-a-potties on their curb...I am glad we just have recycled signs! LOL!

The kiddos were out of school today. We slept in (although DH had to go to work), did a little straightening, some errands, and did Easter eggs. Dori *LOVED* it. Here are her eggs. We got this cool kit that included collapsible little cups to put the dye in. Very cool!!Parker is spending the night at a friends tonight and Jake has friends over, so we decided to go out to eat with Dori. Tomorrow is the family event and tomorrow night we will get everything ready for Easter. We need to make something for a dessert potluck and egg hunt, prep Easter clothes, and make some potatoes for Easter lunch. We will be eating with my sis & family. Then in the afternoon head to that dessert potluck with friends. And then Sunday night is Amazing Race! I also want to watch Sunday's episode of Extreme Home Makeover, but I will have to record it.

Speaking of AR, did you know that the host, Phil Keoghan is riding a bicycle across the US right now? Here is the website: It's coming through Illinois, but we have to take our daughter for her follow-up surgery so we can't go see him. The website has a link to his Facebook & Twitter. Anyway, with the week off...I am looking forward to the return of AR this week!

Have a great weekend!! What are your plans????

  8. If you ever get to see a marathon it is really inspirational. I ran the Chicago one in 1999. My weekend was pretty tame. Did take the girls for a nice hike on the Appalachian Trail.
