There was quite a crew there and for many of them it had been between 4-7 years since I had seen them!
Emma found Emmy Rose, a bear that lives at Kris' house. It was funny because little Emma was shy and very attached to me. That made my heart sing.

Although the pumpkin patch was fun to see...this little pumpkin, who has grown up so much since June when I saw her last, was the one that I was after. She was and is so happy. We had a great time bonding the next day. On Thursday, she went to Day Care until Nana picked her up early at 3:00 and Friday morning...she was there for a bit...but we had traveling to do! People to see, places to go...a weekend of fun was planned for this precious bundle of joy.

My massage therapist kept me on track...with snarky remarks like: Oh, Mom did 4 miles this morning (NOTE: her mom is 76 years old!!!) So when I finished the race...I logged over 100 miles. I was so excited that I was able to do this...And all of the snarky remarks made by Diane (Massage therapist) was worth it...it was really a great day.
Here is just one reason I love my son-in-law, Jon! Before the race, during training, he would encourage. He ran with her the entire race. He kept asking...are you okay? He encouraged her and they crossed the line together....How I praise God for this gift to one of my daughters.
I flew into Omaha on September 23. It was great to see Betsy, Jon, Simon and Mazie! We were excited about the upcoming Race. I decided that I would have to call mine a Wace...but I will deal with that later....
They FINALLY got there and we walked up to a rodeo? exhibit. There were all kinds of fun things to do. Mazie and I got to hold the baby goat.
Not sure why this cowpoke got thrown in the slammer but he was there for quite a while..

This is the general store that is right across from the restaurant where we ate...
This is the boat that I have to say is our favorite picture...not the prettiest...but one of the most fun pictures...
Okay when they see this one on my blog, they may never come back which is NOT my intention. This is one of my favorites. We were wandering through a statue garden and found the visor family of statues. Since they won't use this one for their Christmas card, it has to be used....delete....um....nope!!!!
Later that night we went to the Bellingham Bay Harbor Cruise with all the crab you could eat!!!
We were not miles away. Steve picked this one up for a photo op...they are dry and rough...not at all slimy...
The color came out along the babbling brook. We stopped at the camp ground on our way up to the peak. The red was so pretty against the blue back drop of the creek...
Tuesday...The Gartners left...we had a great time but we had a couple more stops before they said good bye and went home to see their little monkeys whom they missed so much! We went to the Space Needle and went to the top. If you look closely...you can see it was pretty foggy but the view was still pretty amazing!!
