Not quite 2 weeks after St. George-
still super happy about the outcome of that race...
and I have another marathon this Saturday!
I won an entry into this one, so why not?
I have ran something like 5 miles in the past 1.5 weeks.
I am calling it tapering.
I figure I just ran 26.2- can't get much more ready for a
marathon than that, right?
I don't plan on pushing this one.
Only goal is under 4 hours-
but even that isn't something I'm set on.
Just running to enjoy the run...
that's my plan.
As with any marathon- just finishing is always the main goal.
Wish me luck!
Now, on to Disneyland day 2!
(even though it happened over a month ago)
Day 2 was California Adventure!
Here comes the picture overload...
We had a reservation set up at Ariel's Grotto-
We had some princesses with us that needed to meet
up with some Disney Princesses.
Check out these beautiful girls...
First they got to meet Ariel...
Then we were seated at a table,
where appetizers were brought out and drink orders were taken.
We got through the appetizers and first round of drinks
before a manager came by and told us that there was a
plumbing issue and they would not be able to serve lunch.
If you have been to a character meal at Disney, you know
that they are super fun but also NOT super cheap.
So we didn't get lunch, but we did get to meet Princesses!
Without waiting in line.
AND- we didn't have to pay a thing.
A lunch hour well spent at California Adventure :).
While we were there,
the husband took the kids who did NOT care to meet princesses
over to do a little Jedi Training.
As luck would have it,
all of my kiddos got chosen to participate!
Such good little Padawans I have.
(wow, that makes me seem like a huge Star Wars nerd. I'm really not!)
They really loved this and I wish I could have been there to watch.
The rest of the day was spent doing the rest of
I was terrible at taking pictures,
but here is what I got!
The turkey leg picture cracks me up...
and also kinda grosses me out at the same time.
B-boy loved that turkey leg.
He did NOT eat the whole thing- promise.
It was a great day- some cloud cover
and even a tiny bit of rain to keep us a little cooled off.
It was pretty hot the whole time we were down in CA,
so the rain felt good.
Back soon with the final Disneyland day.
Hopefully soon really does mean soon.
