Memorial Day Fun!

I am starting to get caught up from all the busyness.  Finally getting around to Memorial Day.  We had a pretty low key holiday.  Sunday at church we decided to do a get together with my parents and Kelly and Andrew.  I was kidding my mom because she put together the party in a few hours and it looked like something out of a magazine.  It was spectacular.  
 We had a great time relaxing, chatting, eating and playing.  Kate pushed Perry all around the yard.
 We played a little cornhole.  Ben had a good time learning how to play.
 Had to get a cousin picture.
 The kids spent the night with my parents so I could get up early and run the Cotton Row race.  It is a Huntsville tradition that I have never done!  It was a beautiful start to the day.
 I had not run much since the 1/2 marathon back in February.  Needless to say it was a tough morning.  I got to run with Kelly, Paige and my friend Katie throughout the race which was fun.

 It was a great race.  There was "the hill" at mile 3 that I was not really prepared for.  It was straight up.  I struggled the first couple of miles but the last few went great.  Finished in a pretty good time and I was just thankful not to have passed out along the course.

Matt had to work all day so that was a bummer.  We did meet him for lunch.  The kids and I just had a down day together which was fun.  It was a great way to kick off our summer.
