The Race!


Well, it was time for Amy's big race! 3 months ago Amy decided that she wanted to run a half marathon. And she chose a pretty awesome race, 'Disneyland Half Marathon!' She had been training every day for this race, and she rocked it! I am so proud of her. It was a pretty awesome experience for her. We arrived in Anaheim the afternoon before the race. Amy got checked in for the race, and then we went out for a big pasta meal at the Spaghetti Factory. The alarm went off at 3:30 the next morning. Since we bring our toaster everywhere we travel, I was able to make Amy some toast before the race. Of Course the toast burned a little, which activated our smoke alarm! We skipped over to the starting line, along w/ the 14,000 other runners, (my wife had a faster time than 10,000 of them!). A kiss on the forehead, along with a prayer, and my little runner was off.


After the race we went back to the hotel to get packed up and head back home. As we were getting in the car, I asked Amy what she wanted for lunch Her response, which was adorable, "Disneyland!".


So California Adventure Land that day, Disneyland the next. We had a blast!!!


Awesome Weekend!

Casey you are too cute, you big softie!!
Amy- nice job! Half Marathons are the best, after I have this kid, we should meet somewhere and run one together, although you sound like a faster runner than me! Hope all is well!!
