Chillin on Race Day

It's race day!!!  First race of the day is the girl's race, so we are up early again, grabbing breakfast at the hotel and then heading to Wide World of Sports.

We arrived early and were able to walk around.  This place is awesome!!!

Here is Goofy waiting for the runners....

and here is baby girl.....

Time to celebrate & show off that medal!!

We headed back to the hotel after the race to drop off the car and grab the ferry to Disney Springs

We had reservations at Planet Hollywood.  

We walked around a bit more and then made our way back to the hotel to meet my parents, who had driven up from Miami to see us for a few hours.  We hung out at the hotel for a bit until it was time for us to head out to our race.  

We arrived at Wild World of Sports and headed to our corrals.  Then there was a storm approaching so we were sent inside the stadium.  It was crazy!!!  This set us back over an hour so since Disney had a hard stop for this run, they had to shorten the race.  We went from a 13.1 race to about 7 miles!
Oh well, we were just happy that the storm wasn't serious and we were ready to go.
It was so exciting....hubby and I were in one of the last corrals and couldn't wait to get going.  

It started out great but as usual, after 1 mile I start feeling tired.  I really need to work on running on pavement for long distances.  I get tired so quickly, complete opposite of my treadmill runs.  I can run more miles on the treadmill will the feeling of exhaustion.

But I pushed through and tried to keep up with hubby, who was doing a lot better than he thought he would.  

I can see the starting line!!!!

Had to stop by the Osborne's Dancing Lights....

I'll catch up....I'm going.....LOL

and we made it!! Love the medals....don't you?

Unfortunatley, I was exhausted and could barely walk so we didn't stick around for the Food & Wine Festival.....we headed back to our room.  I really needed a shower & my bed!

Here are the other days to this trip report:

Taking a Detour!!!!

So we are up & out of my dad's house by 7am.  It was hard and I tried to leave quickly, my poor baby girl even cried-I felt soooo bad for her.  Usually I'm the only one crying, but she really didn't want to leave :(  So,  we said goodbye-hope to be back soon (permanently) and we drove off!
About an hour out, we stopped for breakfast and had to practically make a run for it, LOL! There were like 20 buses full of kids!! By the time we got inside, the Dunkin Doughnuts line was like a mile long-ugh, there goes my coffee!  So we had no other choice but to eat burgers at Wendy's, everything else had super long lines that we didn't want to wait on!
We grabbed our burgers and left.  A little while later Laz asks me if I want to stop at Clearwater Aquarium.  At this point, I'm not 100% sure-I was sad about leaving & felt like just being home to calculate & come up with good, concrete reasons to move to Florida.  On the other hand, I really wasn't looking…

Weekend Trip to Niagara Falls, Canada~Part 2

Here is our 2nd day in Niagara Falls.  We started our morning with breakfast in the hotel restaurant.  After breakfast we headed over to Marineland.  This park was nothing spectacular, but it was a nice little trip.  We saw a dolphin show, saw several other animals, killer whales, fed Beluga whales and rode 1 or 2 rides.  Again, nothing spectacular but it was fun.  A lot of walking, and our favorite part was feeding the beluga whales - they were so cute!
The dolphin show was also fun!  Its been a long time since we've seen dolphins in action.

After all the walking, we were run down and hungry.  We headed back to the hotel to shower and prepare for our dinner at Massimmo's Italian restaurant.  The view was beautiful!  I enjoyed dinner, but hubby and baby girl didn't.  I like to try new things and unfortunately the other 2 don't - and there wasn't much on the menu that they liked.  Baby girl had Ceasar Salad, hubby had Minestrone soup and I had Linguine Carbonara.

Cooking Corner: Cookbook Challenge Day 1

Hi everyone!  I'm starting April with a little challenge for myself.  You are all welcome to join if you choose.  I have a rather large collection of recipes that I've never tried and since I started to declutter my life of things I don't need, this is one area that needs help. What do I need so many cookbooks and binders of recipes for? I don't know - it just takes up space and it's another thing for me to clean.  So, I decided that if I can't find good recipes that we love, there is no point in keeping the book or recipe.  I attempted this challenge a few years ago but never followed through.  This time, I intend to stick with it.
Here's my challenge:
Pick a book a month and try some recipes.
Decide what we like and what we don't.
If I have at least 15 recipes that we like, the book stays.  If not, I'll just copy the few recipes we liked and get rid of the book.
Not sure what I'll do with the book yet.  I'll figure it out at the end of th…
