not only was this the weekend of our 5k race, but our town hosts a festival every year on the last weekend of august called 'HERITAGE DAYS'. there's a 5k race (duh!), kiddie bike parade, food tent, car show, talent showcase, inflatable jumping fun houses, food, crafts, etc. and did i mention the parade? jay dressed up in the gorilla & hopped around, hugging people & high-fiving the little kids that weren't crying at the sight of him. i rode on the hayrack, sandwiched between henry & finn, and threw candy at people. i almost hit my old hairdresser in the head with a box of nerds. she looked hungover.
i played some songs at the talent showcase. here's my friend jill & i up on stage. it was a scorching 200 degrees up there, as was evidenced by my sweating stomach when i got done playing my two-song-set. i need to do some sit-ups...and they need to have a tarp over the stage!
really, i had given up hope that our challenge would be met. i kept posting stuff & then ran outta any thoughts and decided that maybe september would be a better month. THEN THERE YOU COME WITH YOUR "CAN-DO" ATTITUDES!!! did you send out some secret pep-rally email or something?!
