Happy Mother's Day Weekend!

Ashtyn, Lo, and I made a fast trip to Sacramento this weekend, thanks to the generosity of Tiff and Daddy.  We arrived on Friday afternoon, and surprised my mom.

This is my sister, my SIL, my mom, me, and our daughter on Saturday morning.  We are all dressed up and ready to go to the Susan G. Koman walk for the cure in Sacramento, California--the reason for our trip.  The beautiful lady in the hot pink shirt is a breast cancer survivor.  It was 5 months to the day from the day of her surgery to the day of the walk.

Dad was the picture-taker.  Here are the rest of us, at the starting line.  See how big our race bib numbers are?  There were a LOT of people here!

If you've ever been involved with a race, you know that the fun of the race is the energy AT the race.  The energy at this race was particularly marvelous as about 20,000 celebrated survival, remembered loved ones, and fought to find a cure for breast cancer.

We are planning to make this a yearly family tradition, so watch out for us next year!  We're gonna be a LARGE group!
