How did I score lunch with my parents on their anniversary?
* I scheduled it last week when I didn't realize it was "the day". YAY me!
So here's the fun photo from "Rosa's". Yes, my Dad's bald spot gives of very happy Ray's of SUN.
Loved visiting with them yesterday. Actually, had about 2.5 hours to talk their ears off. awesome.
We talked about --- um, it may be easier to tell you what we didn't talk about. ;)
So many of my happiest moments include my parents and their attendance at an event [AKA my daily life].
I loved sitting there in Rosa's remembering some little memories I hadn't thought of in a long time.
*The way my brother hates bugs.
*The fire pit in the back yard.
*"Happy" having dates in our back yard.
*Y-von's Duran Duran posters.
*Ann drinking carrot juice [and duh, always being nice].
Then we spoke of the marathon this Saturday. They are sad they won't be there [in person]. I'm silently [sad---ER]. I couldn't tell them this. My parents grew up in Logan. They are now world travelers [which completely rocks] and my timing, it sucks.
My Mom dropped me off for this exact marathon 11 years ago. I felt like a kindergartner going on a bus for the first time. My first marathon. No iPod. No "Gu's". No breakfast. No Garmin. No clue what I'd run. No potty stops before the race. I really don't remember much of this race. I'll blame it on the 9 week old Peanut growing inside me. I swear pregnancy made me brainless. Yes, even more so than today.
But, what I do remember . . . . . .
. . . . . . "Mambo N 5" was playing when I sat there like a scared school girl and leaned over to kiss my Mom. Yes, I was married. Yes, I was 22. Yes, I heart my Mom [and Dad, but Dad was smart and stayed home sleeping].
Yes Mom & Dad you will be missed. But I'll do great. And yes, I'll text you.
NOW to the CSN WINNER . . . ..
. . . . Yep, random.org style.
