To the seasoned mothers, new mothers, and mothers-to-be:
You are outstanding women with a very hard job. You deserve much congratulations and time to relax with your favorite book or skein of yarn.
We have had a busy weekend here. My mother and sister came out this weekend for the River Bank Run. Meagan flew out from New York to run the 25K (15.5 mi) with Brian. They each did an awesome job. Brian did his own personal best at 2:19.
Looks painful, doesn't it?
Not wanting to be lazy, my mom and I did the 5K Walk. We pumped our arms and hiked it up through the streets. I jammed to New Pornographers on my iPod while she grooved to Bob Seger. It was a gorgeous day for a walk. We finished in 43 minutes, which was better than I'd hoped.
Later that night, Brian's side of the family came over for dinner. We enjoyed spinach salad, Greek kabobs with a mint-feta sauce and my very favorite strawberry pie from the Junior League cookbook.
