Go Rockets and a Half

My picture from Wordless Wednesday cracks me up. It was from New Years Eve when Hollie and Justin invited us to a Houston Rockets game. We had so much fun. The kids loved every minute of it and so did I . Hollie and I sat right behind Yao Ming's parents....how cool is that? I think the kids kicked the back of their chairs just a few times. HA Reid and Justin sat two or three rows from the court. And let me tell you Reid was in heaven! Hollie and I had the girls and they sat in our laps. We had a fun bonding time with our daughters....ha ha!

They were so excited about going to the big game! Don't they look cute.

Reid, Justin and Brooks watching the game with their rally hats on. ha! Can you see Brooks hiding behind the red fuzzy hat? Reid is holding him. Brooks and Reid are buds.

And of course, there are no pictures of me and Hollie. We were too busy wrestling children. Moms never get their pictures taken! HA HA! Anyway, after the game we went back to their house to ring in the New Year. Um, we all kinda fell asleep but we had a BLAST! Thank you guys so much for a wonderful time!

On a different note.....tomorrow is my big day. It is my 2nd half-marathon. I am excited but nervous. I have been drinking water until I feel like a fish. I am hydrated, got my clothes ready, my backpack, my bib number, my GU, my Gatorade and fuel belt, my socks....you get the idea. Troy has signed up for text messages from the Marathon to see where I am along the way. He will bring the kids out to mile 9, I think. I will be so ready to see them. That is about the time that I am all pooped out. It brightens my run to see my family cheering me on. I will have to post pictures next week.

Last year, being my first race, I didn't realize you could run for a cause. So, I thought to myself that next year I would. I knew what, and who I wanted to run for so I had that planned all year. Well this year snuck up on me and I didn't get to register for my cause. Go figure. Those who know me know that I am a little bit of a procrastinator. So, when I found out I missed the deadline for running for a cause I decided to do it on my own. So, this race, my 2nd half, is dedicated to my sweet nephews, Brock and Brody. I will be running for the March of Dimes in their honor. Remembering them along my way will keep me running.
