The Birthday, The Race for the Cure

Race for the Cure finish

Yes, we did it! On Saturday morning Team DC Metro Moms Blog joined thousands of others running/walking/strolling for the Cure in downtown DC. The company was fantastic and we had a wonderful time while raising money for the Susan G. Komen Foundation. The day was a scorcher with high humidity, but the misting tents were up and we made sure to hit every one of them, sometimes twice. It was great to catch up with moms I already knew and meet new ones! This is a cool bunch of gals to hang with. Hopefully we can get together again soon Robin, Jean, Linda, Devra, Jess, Mama Bird, Jessica, Nancy, Sandie, Leticia, Jodifur, Julie, and Sarah! And I missed seeing Susan, Suzie, and Mary, but I’m sure we’ll catch up!

After all our racing and brunch festivities were done, I went home and drank gallons of Gatorade, then started getting ready for Top Gun’s birthday party which was yesterday. Michael and I tag team making the birthday cakes, so I did my part baking and mixing up three batches of frosting Saturday night (aside: I kept nodding off and it took me till 3:30 am to finish it all) then Michael put his aerospace engineering skills to use and designed an airplane cake on Sunday morning! Top Gun was thrilled with his cake, and I’ll have a post up about it sometime soon.

    Congrats on a walk well done! I’m glad to know there are so many amazing women (and men) out there willing to put in some hard time to attempt to bring change.
    I can’t wait to see your post about the cake – your family always has the most amazing birthday cakes.
