Happy Easter 2020

Sunday, April 12th, 2020

Due to the quarantine, we weren’t able to go anywhere for Easter.  But I still made the kids get dressed for our annual picture!

Strawberry Picking 2020

Saturday, April 11th, 2020

Even though we are under a “Shelter-in Place” Order due to COVID-19, we are allowed to get groceries. So we made the trek out to Elliot Farms to get some fresh strawberries. This has become an annual spring tradition for us.

Quarantine Firepit

Saturday, April 4th, 2020

Our life has really slowed down due to COVID-19. Since we don’t have anything to do or anywhere to be, we had scores in the driveway this evening!

Baby’s First Marathon

Saturday, March 7th, 2020

This morning, Tristan and I travelled down to Albany for the Snickers Marathon and Half-marathon.

I ran the half marathon while Tristan ran his first full marathon. Tristan finished in 4 hours and 20 minutes and got third place in his age group. He got a nice jacket as a prize!

Snow Mountain Birthday

Sunday, February 16th, 2020

I celebrated my 41st birthday today with a trip to Stone Mountain — called “Snow Mountain” in the winter. We spent a while playing in the snow. Unfortunately when it was time for tubing, all of the slides that Rilianne could ride were closed. So, I demanded a refund for me and her and we wondered around while Kimberlie and the big kids enjoyed the tubing slides. On the way home, we enjoyed a meal at Buckners!

2020 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend

Sunday, January 12th, 2020

We just got home from another Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend.  As usual, I drove down Wednesday and the family joined late Thursday evening.

Thursday morning, was the 5K.

Friday morning, I ran the 10K with Mackenzie. She got second place in her age group!

Saturday, I ran the half marathon with Kimberlie and Tristan.

On Saturday, Rilianne ran 100m kids race.

And this morning, I ran the marathon — completing the Dopey Challenge.

The weather was brutally hot this year. They actually cut a mile off of the course, but after I already passed that point. So I did complete the entire distance.

On the way home, I had a good meal at my favorite steakhouse – Saltgrass!

The Big Kahuna at Typhoon Lagoon

Friday, January 10th, 2020

During the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend this year, the temperatures are much warmer than usual. Because of that, Disney offered runners 50% off of waterpark tickets.  We decided to check out Typhoon Lagoon.

We arrived early and Rilianne was selected to be the “Big Kahuna”. They taught her a special wave, gave us a private tour, and let Rilianne open the park.  We even got our own private cabana with lockers for the day!  It was an amazing day and a great way to cool off!

Merry Christmas!

Kimberlie and the kids were happy to get new phones and Rilianne was happy to finally have her own suitcase.  We also continued our traditional Waffle House Christmas brunch.
