The Starlight Six

  We had another busy weekend and we were again blessed with perfect fall weather for all our activities.

Saturday morning we had to divide and conquer. Raphael helped to coach Rebecca's soccer game and I drove to Vinings, GA to run a Chick-fil-A 10K.  A couple of months ago, I filled out a survey from Chick-fil-A and I ended up winning a free entry to a race!
I was hoping to finish in under an hour and I did. My time was 56:45 and I came in third for my age group :)

I drove home and took a quick shower and by then Rebecca was home and we went to a birthday party for her friend Isabella. Her birthday party was a Candyland theme, so all the kids were in candy heaven! Rebecca was stuffing her pockets with candy. I was too busy talking and eating candy to take many pictures, but it was a fun party.

I have been wanting to take the girls to see a movie at a drive-in movie theater for awhile, so we decided to give it a try on Saturday night.  We told the girls we were going to see "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2." We didn't tell them we were going to a drive- in and Rachel was pretty excited when we drove up.

         We took Rachel's best friend, Daniella, with us and they got all comfy in the back of our car.
Rebecca had a good time and she was pretty well behaved. The movie didn't start until 8:30 and by the time we got home it was after 11, so the girls were tired and there was some crying.

                            The best we could get with the darkness and a nine year old photographer.

The drive-in was much busier than I expected. Lots of families and people having a good time. I am glad we took the girls and hope to go back again with them next summer.

  1. Great job on your race, that's awesome! Your blog is always really cute and I like this version, too. I've wanted to take the boys to a drive in movie, too. How fun.
