Speaking of Pelotonia...

Justin did it!  It was awesome, amazing, totally cool...from Friday evening's opening ceremonies to Justin completing his 43 mile ride....It was fantastic!  Here is a quick photo recap of the events this weekend.
Opening Ceremonies, Homage T-shirt
Getting ready for the ride, and cheering on Daddy!
Yeah, Daddy!!!  Ella was a great little cheerleader, telling the riders, "Great Job, Everyone!" and "I love you guys!"
Amanda Clearcreek High School has a great playground that the girls played on after we met up with Daddy!

Justin, we are OH SO PROUD of you!  You have done an amazing thing, raising money for a cancer cure!  Can't wait til next year!  LOVE YOU!!!!  xoxo

So Proud!

I've been posting this on Facebook, but I just wanted to blog about how proud I am of my hubby, Justin, for choosing to raise money for cancer research by participating in Pelotonia.  He has made a commitment to raise $1,000 to benefit the Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Hospital.  He has been training weekly for the past few months and is doing great!  The big race is next Saturday.  He will be participating in the 43 mile race from Columbus to Amanda.  Friday night we will be attending the opening ceremonies (thanks to Barbara and Kip!) which will feature Augustana and The Counting Crows.

 I'm super-excited to be a part of this experience, and the girls and I *might* have a little surprise for daddy on race day!

Okee dokee....Well, we left off with our lovely date night on Saturday.  Justin and I went out to Knead, a local restaurant.  They serve meals prepared with local produce, meats, and cheeses AND have local microbrews.  It was delicious.  Then, because we were right around the corner, we stopped at Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream...and well, it is absolutely SPLENDID!  If you ever have a chance, GET SOME!  The girls have been going to dance camp for the past two weeks (okay, Maddie is going... Ella has started to refuse to dance).  Not much else exciting going on right now, so ta-ta for now!  Hee hee, who says ta-ta anymore?
