Our Weekend: Ruckus Run!

We had a wonderful weekend this week.  David's family came to visit and we had them over at our house.  It was fun!  David's brother is visiting from his current home in South Korea, where he teaches English to kids. 

On Friday evening, we enjoyed chili and soup at our house and prepped for the race.  On Saturday, we woke up nice and early and ran in the Ruckus Run.  A Ruckus Run is basically a 5K including obstacles.  For instance, we had to forge a creek, climb through mud pits, scale walls, and jump over barricades.  It was exhausting but a ton of fun!  As you can see, we were very muddy after it was over!  Our strategy was to go through the run as a team, except for David's brother, who placed very nicely in the race overall.

After that was over, we ate lunch and tried to take some family portraits (of me, David, and the pets.  Note the emphasis on "tried").  When that was over, we went to look at the new house that David's sister is buying, which is really gorgeous.  Finally, we went out to eat at Waldo Pizza.

On Sunday after our company left, David and I took a long bike ride in the beautiful weather.  We cleaned the house a bit and then watched To Kill a Mockingbird.  I love that book, but I had not seen the movie since high school.  Atticus Finch is one of my very favorite characters. 

I hope you had a great weekend as well!

I'm behind on email and blogs because of hosting company. It was a happy memory of our fun family weekend, to read this post!

Plus, maybe you shouldn't blame your cat for escaping. We should have been more careful about not letting her out!
