Beautiful Crazy Weekend

Ava’s ballet recital was wonderful! She performed her routines beautifully and she said she had fun. My parents and my sister, Janett, were able to make it this year and a family friend, Kara, also joined us, we had a nice time watching the dancers. We laughed at how adorable the little ones were and were amazed at the competition girls. I did my usual running back and forth helping Ava get in and out of her costumes (totally forgot to put my pedometer on). And as soon as it was over Ava got her roses, a few pictures and we quickly went back home.

Now it was time for Desi’s graduation. The ceremony was held at Nova University and they asked that the graduates arrive at 5:15, the ceremony started at 7:30….so for more than 2 hours we waited on line. As usual, we watched in amazement as two people in line ahead of us brought in a party of close to 25 people with them, another person had their party of three people grow to more than 10. We were able to get descent seats, but of course we were on the wrong side of the arena, so we weren’t able to see her walk in or out. We did catch glimpses of her and she was beaming all night long. We had planned on going out to dinner but we didn’t leave until after 10:30 and we were all exhausted, so Desi’s graduation feast was the 24-hour drive through at McDonalds. We celebrated Sunday and went to B.J.’s restaurant and had a nice lunch before Stephen had to go to work. I told both Stephen and Desiree that no matter where they are, when Ava graduates I expect them both to be at her ceremony. Stephen said he would even be at her dance recitals. Gotta love my kids.  My parents, Janett, Lizzy, Jayden and Leilani came  to have some cake to celebrate and it was a nice Sunday afternoon, even if my Dad had to put on the soccer game to watch.

I did manage to run on Friday at lunchtime at work, did 2.57 miles in 30:08 and on Sunday did 2.96 in 37:36. I was out the door a little after 8:00 am, but it was getting hotter by the second. I filled my Nathan water bottle that Stephen gave me for Mother’s Day with Powerade and sipped it throughout my run – definitely liked it better than plain ice water. I wore my WISH 13.1 Princess Bondi Band and it didn’t budge the entire time. I think I had it too far back because towards the end the sweat was burning my eyes a bit. Next time, I will lower it a tad.
