My older son's girlfriend asked him to join her and some of their teammates for the evening, so he had to find a costume at the last minute! We gathered up some cowboy duds. He commented that he was actually quite comfortable stomping around in boots while wearing a big hat & belt buckle! I guess I did raise him right...

Wow. I never could have imagined that I would actually do this. I ran the Niagara Falls International Half-marathon!! It was so hard, but what an amazing feeling of accomplishment now that I have successfully completed the course. It is a beautiful course that follows the Niagara River on its 'twisty, turny' way to the falls. The best part was sharing the experience with these great friends! We had so much fun during our weekend here and took so many photos that I'll be sharing them all week...

I was a little girl when I first learned about the boat that carries passengers right up to those incredible waterfalls. Ever since then I have wanted to go on that boat. Today my wish came true! And, it was every bit as thrilling as I knew it would be. There is nothing else in the World quite as powerful as Niagara Falls.

Somehow these ladies managed to get me into that little yellow glass elevator and up to the rotating dining room at the top. Considering the fact that I am afraid of heights and claustrophobic, this is pretty close to a miracle. Ahhhh...but the view from up there was quite incredible!

Our little town sure knows how to put on wicked fun events! The Annual Pumpkin Run is no exception!
This was our 2nd year running the race and it was just as much fun as it was last year, except that this year my oldest WON it! We are all so excited and proud of him for working so hard and reaching his goal. He was quite determined after coming in 2nd last year that this was HIS year. He ran his race, which was not easy thanks to the bitterly cold strong wind, and earned it!
His brother also had a great race and really pushed himself so that he could place in the top 10 this year. His speedy sisters were right behind him, placing 11th & 25th overall. I didn't beat my goal time of 30 minutes, but am extremely happy with my time of 30:58, which put me 2nd in my age group!
This is definitely one of our favorite races of the season and we can't wait to come back next year! As much as we love running races, we especially love running and visiting with our friends and neighbors!
