Insta-PR and Weekend Fun

On Saturday morning I woke up bright and early to run my first 5k! I was excited because I never really try to run fast, I'm usually pacing myself. The race was by a beautiful lake about 15 min from my house. Here are the results:

7 1274 LISA HARTLEY ACWORTH GA F 27 24:13.24 24:12.39 7:48 5/34 7/167 F1829
Chip time was 24:12:39/Pace 7:48
7/167 Females

I'm happy with the results and glad I have a benchmark time to base my training off of.
After the 5k, I ran with my son for the kids fun run.
He had a blast

After, we headed to the farmer's market and for the first time this season got Peaches!
I love peaches. We headed home, put the kids for naps, I got in two episodes of Criminal Minds!
For some reason we took Adam to go ride go-karts on the hottest day of the year. It was fun waiting inline for an hour with a sweaty, bored baby.

It's obvious my husband was having wayyyyy more fun than Adam! We came home watched the Yankees finally win and went to sleep way later than we should have.

Sunday funday started with lots and lots of cleaning and preparing lunch, we had friends coming at noon. I don't have any pictures but they have two of the most adorable girls almost the same age as our kids. It's a blast watching them all play, and they were all good! I can't believe I forgot to take pictures of lunch! I made mozzarella, tomato, basil pesto paninis, whole wheat pasta salad with tomato, feta, black olives, red and green bell pepper, and cucumber. I even made the red wine vinaigrette, and we had fruit salad. Soooo yummy, even the kids ate it.
After we watched the Yankees win again, wooo hooo, took naps, washed cars, played in pools and went to dinner to eat the largest amount of seafood I've ever seen!

That baby splashed for an hour straight! And, ummm, do you see that car?!?! Yep, it was actually that dirty.

Ok, so that seafood platter, was half-gone when I decided to finally snap a pic. There was also a plate literally piled a foot high with fried flounder. Oh and the bread was Hawaiian sweet bread filled with a sweet cream cheese, it weighed like 2 pounds. The salad dressing was so good I took some home. That cake needs no description... it was by far the best piece of cake I've ever eaten and the biggest! It was Raspberry White Chocolate Mousse.

Obviously the weekend ended on a good note.

I hope everyone had a Spectacular weekend...
