Run Rich Run

This past weekend Rich went in 2 road races: a 10k on Saturday afternoon, and a half-marathon on Sunday. He came 3rd overall in the 10k. Then, after that nice little warmup, he ran his best time ever in the half-marathon, doing it in 1 hr 36 mins and coming 40th out of almost 300 runners. Here he is near the finish line of the half-marathon (large photo taken by me) and running through the rain in the 10k (photo taken by a friend on cellphone).
Way to go Rich!

Fool-ish Fun

April Fool's Day is one of the most highly anticipated holidays in our house. We start talking about and planning it a week or so ahead (with lots of hand-rubbing and maniacal laughter). Today we've already had lots of fun doing harmless little pranks like
- hiding the peanut butter
- switching the calendar to July
- putting all the wrong cereals in the cereal boxes
And Allison doesn't know it yet, but I put plastic cucumber slices in her lunch, filled her lunchbox with little toy monsters and figures, taped a piece of paper saying "July 1" on today's page in her agenda, and put crackers in a "Bear Paws" wrapper and re-sealed it so she'll think she's having Bear Paws for snack.
BWA-HAHAHA! Here's to being silly!
