Back again...

Back from the condo with the girls this weekend. It was MUCH nicer weather down south! We did a little hiking, chatting, shopping, eating, working on projects (quilting, card-making, scrapbooking) Good times. It was our first annual Girls' Getaway. There were only 4 of us this year, but we're hoping all 6 of us make it next year.
The girls, in front of Zion Lodge:Saturday, we went into St. George to see part of the "Ironman" race. (Tricia was hoping to see people collapse at the finish line) It was amazing to see these athletes! They swam 2.6 miles, then rode their bikes 112 miles AND THEN they ran a 26 mile marathon!!!!! We saw some of the professionals cross the finish line (fastest time 8 hours, 25 minutes), then moseyed over to the bike/run transition and saw lots of people just starting their marathon after 10 hours of swimming/bike riding!!! It was unbelievable.
All in all a great weekend, now, back to real life. (Which isn't half bad)
