Weekend Recap: Glow Run and Baptisms

Weekend Recap: Glow Run and Baptisms

We had a GREAT weekend!  I honestly wasn’t ready for it to end last night.  I knew I needed to go to sleep, but I stayed up a little too late reading trying to stretch the weekend for all it’s worth. 🙂
Friday evening, I FINALLY saw The Fault in Our Stars. I managed to read the book without crying, but oh man, I ugly cried at the movie.  We got dinner and hit up Wal-Mart after the movie.
Saturday, I attempted sleeping in, but I was up around 7ish.  Darn it, early weekday wakeup time.  I guess 7 is sleeping in from my usual 4:30/5 a.m., but I ended up going back to bed after I let the dog out…and I rested until around 9.
We puttered around the house and around lunch time, we headed to the lake.  We saw a beautiful deer on the way there!  It just stood there and stared at us.

We spent two hours at the lake, floating, sunning, and reading. I’m trying to read a book about Broadway choreographer Bob Fosse…but it’s 600 pages….and it’s from the library, so I have a finite amount of time to read it.  I’m reading every spare moment.

We ran some errands after the lake, going to look at a truck and meeting Tyler’s uncle for an early dinner. Then, we all went to Van Buren for the Splatter Me Colorful Glow Run 5k.  It was a BLAST.
We were all wearing our matching neon yellow.  We got some glow face paint before the race!

During the race, they shoot you with glow paint as you walk/run (we walked.).  We were a hot mess afterwards.

But it looks so neat in the black lights!

I’m so glad we can do active stuff like this together!

Sunday, we were up early to head to Hot Springs.  My aunt, uncle, cousin Gavin, and grandma Elee all were baptized on Sunday.  It was SUCH an answered prayer and so special to be there.
The pastor said it’s the first time he’s baptized three generations at the same time!
We had lunch with the family and headed home.  We were a bit tight in the car because mom brought my cousin Luke back with her.  They came over last night to feed the catfish, which Luke really enjoyed. It’s so fun to spend time with the family!

So, today is Monday and we’re back at it.  But I’m doing REALLY exciting stuff tonight…can’t wait to tell you about it tomorrow! 🙂 *teaser!*


  1. Your weekend looks like it was full of fun! Have you read “The Auschwitz Escape” by Joel Rosenberg? I just finished it and it was fabulous! Didn’t want it to end but I couldn’t put it down!!!

  2. Looks like such a fun weekend!! 🙂 I love that three people in your family were welcomed into the family of believers on the same day, what a testimony!!!
