A busy weekend…

Wow… what a great weekend.  Saturday, we watched daughter Nellie and niece Annie Bley compete in the Door County Half Marathon.  With nearly 1500 runners (with an additional 500 who ran the 5K), Peninsula State Park hosted thousands of people on Saturday.  The race is run extremely well with runners and spectators shuttled in via the Door County Trolley or school buses from Gibraltar school from either the school or the Skyway Drive-In.  We got there early and were able to park in the park so to speak.  My ankle is still in a cast from my surgery for a torn tendon.  We brought along a non-motorized scooter that I knelt my bad leg on and pushed with my good leg.  I felt like I ran the marathon after pushing myself along miles of trails.  Annie finished 7th overall of the women.  She runs cross county for the UWGB. Not too shabby Annie!  Nellie did great too… she never walked and finished in just over two hours in addition to raising $2000 dollars for her non profit, the American Folklore Theatre!  Congrats girls!

We were in one of the most beautiful parks on the planet and I get the porta potties in the picture…

That evening we headed down to the Draft Haus in Sturgeon Bay.  Mark and our good friend Tom were inducted into the Door County Baseball League Hall of Fame.  No, there isn’t an actual building but there are tons of memories and stories to be shared at this event. Our whole family was there…

The place was packed and we had a great time.  Congrats to Mark and Tom and all the inductees.

On Mother’s Day, we watched the Egg Harbor Indians beat Washington Island.  It was sunny, my family was there and our baseball park now has indoor plumbing… aka a bathroom, so it was a good day.  Family and friends came over for fried chicken afterward and all was good with the world.

Happy Belated Mother’s Day to all the moms out there.
