Weekend Recap

Dave and his brother, Tony, ran a 5K Saturday morning.  It was a pretty chilly morning.  The temp was in the low 40s with a wind chill in the high 30s.

I had to stand across the road and face the sun to take pictures so they aren't the greatest.

Since it was chilly, I smartly sat in the car and drank hot chocolate and ate pumpkin bread while I waited from them to finish. :o)

Dave finished with a time of 26:13, his best time yet.  Tony finished shortly after.

As soon as they were done running, I headed out of town to meet my mom so we could go to Sioux Falls.  We did some shopping and visited my uncle in the hospital.  He had a bone marrow transplant last week so he'll be in the hospital for quite awhile.  He's doing pretty well right now considering all he's been through.

Dave and I hung out around home most of the day today.  We watched the MN Vikings lose yet another game.  After the game we took a drive out in the country.


I thought that line of trees was so cool looking.

Now we're just lounging again.  I'm going to make some brownies soon so we can have warm brownies with vanilla bean ice cream for dessert. :o)

Hope you all had a great weekend and have a great week!

I LOVE THE WINDMILL AND THE TREE LINE! I have been trying to get a shot like that of a windmill for a year w/o luck. SO ENVIOUS! Great job to you and your hubby. How long did it take him to work up to 5Ks?

Congrats to Dave, and to his brother. I'm especially impressed that it was so cold and they still ran. It's hard to do anything physical when it's cold. Love the pictures!

Your cocoa and bread look yummy. :)

The windmill photo is beautiful.

Praying for your uncle. I hope the transplant is a miracle for him.

Sorry about your Vikings. We watched the Cowboys lose their lead in the 3rd quarter, and lose the game. grrrrr.

Hzve a great week!
