We had a fantastic time running our second Hero Up. I was all ready to sign up for the 5k but Rocky begged to do the 5k. She ran her little buns off and I was a pretty proud mama.
Rosy wasn't much of a runner when it came to the kids race, but she sure looked good in her boots.
I couldn't have been happier to see so many friends. It was like a high school reunion except that it was fun and I was excited to see every one of the people in attendance.
Afterwards we went to check out the Saturday Market in Portland. Conveniently the superhero costumes double as excellent garb for playing in the fountain. You may wonder how we got Rosy's tights off without actually taking off the leotard. Let's just say that it might be her super power.
We watched the Duck game at the Funk's house, which I like to refer to as our summer home on Lake Oswego. We spend so many nights there that we basically share ownership by now.
Of course we had to get our hair did by our favorite stylist. And there was one pretty epic pajama party that happened after all these kids finally went to sleep. But you know what they say, what happens in Lake Oswego...
I didn't take a picture but I should have one of me hanging out with Katrina. She is such a wonderful friend and when I think of being in her home I am filled with cozy, happy, contented feelings. It was a perfect weekend filled with friends which was good because it was also the beginning of two weeks without Brandon. I won't go into details but I will say that it was a good thing that I had been enriched with love and support which filled the canteen that got me through the desert.
