Lumiere Challenge

We did it. We completed the 10km yesterday and the Wine and Dine Half Marathon today. We trained for the distance but we couldn’t train for the heat and humidity. No more getting up at 3am for the race bus. Now we get to enjoy Disney World and the Food and Wine festival tonight at EPCOT.

We got 3 beautiful medals and 3 long sleeved tech shirts.

Our team t-shirts were a big hit. We had so many comments and people taking pictures of it.

Snow….No Thanks

oct09-2016

Sunday morning we woke up to a winter wonderland.  October 9th is way to early for snow and winter to start…and not great for Thanksgiving.  We were supposed to do a 20km workout in preparation for our upcoming half marathon. After looking at all the snow, we decided to opt for a 10, leave our 20km for today and use it to work off some of the turkey and stuffing we snarfed last night.

We are Grandparents!!!

We are so thrilled to announce the arrival of our first grand child.  We travelled to their home town on July 5th, two days before the official due date.   Unfortunately the baby decided that it didn’t want to make an appearance on the scheduled date.  As each day went by we got more and more nervous that it wouldn’t be born before our scheduled departure date of July 15th.  I guess the baby decided that it was worth meeting us after all.  Cameron James was born at 4:45am on Thursday, July 14th.  He was 7lbs 12 ounces and 20.5 inches long.  Mom, Dad and Cameron are all doing well and adjusting to life as a family.

Here is a picture of Cameron before they even weighed/measured him.

And of course proud Grandma and Grandpa with Cameron:
