2012 Stockade-athon

Today was the annual Stockade-athon a 15K race that is held every November.  Today it had a special meaning as both Mark & Dani signed up to run in it.  We weren't able to be there at the beginning of the race as our furnace decided to "crap" out last night so had to wait for a repair man(no it's not fixed won't get the part until tomorrow.....having heat is over-rated anyway)
We got to see Dani as they entered the park the first time.
They then go back out & in the other entrance then around the pond again
I ran over to get her again as she came up to the finish line
Poster stayed on the other side looking for Mark
Even Molly watched the race.

Mark has only started running in the last few months & looks so good now he has lost a huge amount of weight.

I was able to get a shot of Mark crossing the finish line.

I have to finish by saying how proud we are of both of them doing this. 

Way to go Mark & Dani!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"

Love Val

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty

 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!

   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again

 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter

 This sums up the whole walk!
