Happy Thanksgiving

I hope everyone had a great day today. We had fun today -- did something a little different, we started the day doing a Turkey Trot. This was a 4 mile run/walk to benefit the Portland Zoo. (no I didn't run, I did the walk) The weather man said it would be dry in the morning and rain in the afternoon. Great it will be nice when we walk. right! :o{ it rained but we had a fun time anyway.

What made it more fun was that Sheri came along and did the walk with me. :o}

Thanks Sheri !!

This is part of the crew. Mr. B he did the run and then the awesome kid did the walk but of course it wasn't cool to walk with two women so he walked ahead. (Russ [he did the run] is taking the picture that's Sheri's #1 son) :o}

Did I mentioned it rained! :o{

By the time we made the half way mark we were soaked, so I took my gloves and hood off and just went for it. It's a good thing it wasn't too cold, just right for a walk.

This is the finish line. YEA! We made it in 1 hour 20 minutes not too bad.

After the run we went home got warm and dry. then set the table for family to come for dinner. We had 14 people for dinner. After dinner some visited -- while others did the wii.

It was a great day. I hope you have a great day. :o}

Sounds like a great Thanksgiving! One question: how did you have the time to walk (for a good cause) and still serve 14 people? I cooked for 2 days!
