My dad's marathon was this past weekend, and he did great! Not only did he finish, but he also beat his goal time by a few minutes. Way to go, Dad! My mom surprised him by ordering matching t-shirts that announced we were the support crew for Dan _____. We definitely got noticed since there were a dozen of us wearing the same shirts, and it was neat to be able to share a little of our story. Here's the group photo, which includes my dad's mom and two sisters:
We celebrated Father's Day a week early since we were all together, and I made one of my dad's favorites, apple pie, embellished with the distance he'd run the day before (26.2 miles).
The cousins had a great time together--playing, going to the park and pool, etc. Here's Grammie with her five "grands":
Monica got a lot more pictures on her camera, and this is actually the only one I got of my dad. Here he is with my nephew Samuel.
Thanks to all who "cheered" my dad on from afar--we are so proud of him!
