Busy Weekend

We had such a great, but busy, weekend that I was actually looking forward to my normally hectic weekdays! Of course, Mondays are the least hectic of those weekdays, so that helps.

Friday was our anniversary, as you probably saw on my previous post. We didn't get a chance to go out, but it was because of a great cause. We have been putting together a benefit for little Clara for the last 5 or 6 weeks and it was this past weekend. So Friday during the day I was running to the bank, picking up donations, and gathering the food. That night we were busy getting ready, setting up the park, organizing all of the donations, etc. I was so tired that I fell asleep in about 2 seconds once my head hit the pillow.

Saturday morning was gorgeous, if a bit cold. But seriously, who doesn't want to play an 8am game when there's still frost on the ground and it's below 30? The day ended up being beautiful and such a great out-pouring of support! So many people showed up with generous hearts and wallets, all in the name of Clara and her health and well-being. It was a long day, but the tiredness was so worth it. I was so glad to be able to help our good friends in their time of need. And THANK YOU to everyone out there who donated or came to the benefit or played ball. Here is the team that one first place, along with Nick, Andrea & Clara.

Yesterday we finished up the last of the benefit dealings, like cleaning up the park and sorting all the left-overs and bar pans. Then we took the horses out and went for a nice ride before bed. It was just too nice out. Both Alayna and Lilly got a turn on the horses, which made them more than happy to comply when it came time for bed.
