Friday night Gracie had dress rehearsal. Scott had to work on Saturday and miss the official recital so we all took her and went for ice cream afterwards. She was so happy her dad got to see her dance up on the big stage. She kept waving to him. :)
Saturday morning was cold and wet. Just the kind of weather that can completely melt a little ballerina and her costume. Thankfully the weather took a break long enough for me and Grace to get in the school. I then quickly headed back home to pick up the grandmas, Zak and auntie to go and watch my daughter perform as a little wooden puppet. She was amazing of course. And, Zak was really good just sitting and watching the entire 45 minute performance. Afterwards we were off to the restaurant of Gracie's choice (Applebee's) for a celebration lunch.
Sunday Scott worked so the kids and I woke up at 5:30 and headed off to the half marathon to watch 14 of our closest club members run the local half marathon. We had an amazing morning for it. Perfect weather for a half. Was feeling a little sad for not doing it but actually had a great time taking pictures and cheering everyone on.
This is a pic of me and kids shadow waiting for the club to meet us for a group picture. Zak's got his arms up, he said he was flying like a raptor - of course :)
Had a good talk with Scott i about taking some time off and just enjoying everything I've been missing because of all the training I've done over the past year and a half. It's funny cause part of me misses being out there with the gang but part of me is really content just hanging with the kids and cheering from the sidelines.
After the race I took the kids over to my favorite trail spot. I think Gracie has trail running in her blood. She started out using the bridge but before the afternoon was over she was running through the creek. :) Zak just wanted for find a lizard to take home. Thankfully, one was never found - phew :)
I think it's time to get back to things. I'll be starting out slow for sure but I'm sure the pace will pick up in no time. Hmmm, maybe I'll be ready to do the DU - Didn't say I was racing , just thinking I might be ready :)
