Something about getting it over with and ending things on a positive note.
This past weekend was no different.
I started off with pain and ended with a sweet time.
Saturday my friend Amy and I ran in the St. Patty's Day Revenge Obstacle Course.
There were 21 obstacles for us to go through and before we kicked off Amy and I were looking pretty cheery (although chilly):
Her husband captured photos of our fine form (nothing like going across a soccer field doing lunges):
And you know sometimes when you are called upon to do WAY more push-ups then you anticipated you just have to get down in child's post to give your arms a break:
I have been sore for two days, but it is a good sore. I look forward to running this event next year...hopefully we can get more than the two of us on a team.
On Sunday was the sweet. I attended the Mad Hatter Tea at the O'Henry Hotel with my daughter and mom.

The event was put on with great pageantry and detail. The girls got to eat a plate full of treats, make crafts, and play a few games.
It was the perfect exposure to a "fancy" outing for these 3 and 4 year olds.
The hotel holds 3 of these themed teas a year. We are looking forward to October when they host The Wizard of Oz.
It was a fantastic weekend with friends and family.
I hope you all enjoyed your time. Did you do anything fun?
