A friend told me that when she wants a turtle brownie, she buys one turtle brownie instead of baking a whole panful and proceeding to consume it. Smart! I wanted a piece of wedding cake (white cake and white frosting) so I had this little goodie for lunch yesterday. Delicious! Lemon filling! Yum!
This morning we left the house early to watch our youngest daughter participate in the Triathlon for the Cure at a park nearby. She and her sister-in-law have been working so hard to train for it. I'm so proud.
They started with the swim. Pretty water!
We had to walk so far from the parking lot to the event site, so we stayed up by the bike transfer. Those little black specks are strong women swimming!
Here's our J! She hopped on that bike so quickly!
Look at that happy smile!
She is so strong.
Here is her sis buddy!
Samantha came to watch Mama run!
Daddy (husband!) was there to provide support! (As always! He's a super supporter!)
There is Jenny on the right! This is at the finish line! (I just have to brag! She came in fourth in her division!)
When her sis-friend came by, she jumped back in to join her! Way to go, girls!
Years ago, when Bill ran marathons and I ran two little races (it was a big stretch for these short legs!) there were so many elite runners, skinny and swift. This race included all shapes and sizes, almost two thousand women with big hearts and amazing endurance. We saw women of all ages running for such a good cause. It was inspiring.
My next post will be about Susan Branch's new book (LOVE) and I also want to feature a new blogger (new to me) who did something amazing. Be back soon!
