Friday was a full day.
Kid shuttling, a walk to town to pay the taxes, Wendy's second drive time (not as good a report as her first time, but not horrid), a drive out to Lansing to pick up our race packets, more kid shuttling and then a cookout and long overdue visit with friends.
And then came Saturday. Allan, Wendy and I woke up bright and early to head out to the Insane Inflatable 5K. We had chosen the third heat. I was so glad we didn't run any later. It was hot.
It wasn't a timed race, but we were all surprised how quick we got through, especially when someone shared that it was a bit longer than a 5K according to their tracker. We'd do it again. Next time I'd bring Brian.
Allan got through the obstacles in under thirty minutes, and then headed straight to the air force booth to win a t-shirt for breaking the day's pull-up record.
Back at home - Greg took the boys out to the Fowlerville Fair, and while I was tempted to go to, I had to make some time to get things ready for our Monday trip. I did laundry and some packing. And I made zucchini bread. It ended up with a funny upper crust and an under-cooked middle, but it all went regardless. I ordered new bread pans. I had thrown out my old metal ones about six months ago and I can't quite get my glass ones to perform for me the same way.
Home from the fair, Greg changed the oil on the van and gave it a good interior cleaning. We're a bit obsessive about starting trips with a clean vehicle.
In the evening, there was music. Two of my brothers and Uncle George came over. I was being a bit lazy about getting off the couch to get my camera, but then a text request came in, so I got off the couch and got my camera.
I then went back to being lazy.
As for today?
Mark woke me up at a bright and early 6:30.
You can thank him that I had time to blog.
