Went on a "leisure" tube ride on an "unflipable" tube. Five minutes into the ride we were all in the water. So much for leisure and unflipable.

We started the race at 7:30AM and for the first 4 miles of the ride I was headed in the wrong direction. That’s what I get for following someone who didn’t know where they were going either. This didn’t bother me so much until the end of my ride when I was suppose to be done, but still had 4 more miles to go.

The Super Hero Volunteers! Danny, Nick and Bill.
Mile 24 rest stop.
The ride was so beautiful! The first 24 miles were my favorite. I rode alongside beautiful farm land, rivers and streams. Little Red is a women’s only ride so Colleen, Norma and I all rode in the race, but not together. Because of being sidetracked I was about 20 minutes behind Colleen and Norma. I didn’t mind either; it was very peaceful and beautiful. Well, I made it mile 24 and got to see Nick in all his volunteer glory.
Fast forward to mile 70 and I hit my wall. It felt like my legs were jell-o and like my bum was sitting on barbwire. Saw Nick again at mile 75 and he warned me of a huge hill at mile 80. Hit the huge hill along with all the others I wasn’t warned about and around 4:15PM I rolled through the finish line at mile 102.51.
The Three Amigos! Colleen, Norma and me.

We, yet again, attended another Chick-fil-A first 100 opening. For those of you who don’t know, Chick-fil-A gives away 52 free meals for the first 100 customer who check in the day before opening and sleeps overnight in the restaurant parking lot. Our first, first 100 opening was at Jordan Landing in November 2008 and we only have one coupon left from that opening, but now Nick and I are 105 free meals rich! I checked in at 51 and Nick was 67. It was well worth it and I didn’t even mind the snow, except for the fact that it’s the end of April and we are still getting snow. There were 16 of us total who attended and we’re already ready for the next opening. Eat Mor Chikin!

Playing Settlers of Catan. I don't even remember who won, but we later played Nurtz and Yatchzee and I won both those games. Willy, Brian, Nick, me, Sue and Mike (not pictured) eating dinner at the new West Valley Chick-fil-A.

Becca was a wonderful hostess and we saw all of Seattle. We went to Alki Beach, Pioneer Square, antique shopping and the waterfront. Best part of the day was eating half of Becca's clam chowder/sour dough bread bowl of goodness.
My cute little sister at Pike's Market! Nick and I at the top of the Space Needle. FYI - It's a 45 second elevator ride to the top. Times that by 2 and you get 90 seconds for the ride up and down then divide the $17 we paid per person by 90 and it come out to equal about .19 cents per second per person. Now that is one expensive elevator ride. Beautiful outlook from the top and we had crystal clear skies and a perfect view of Mt. Rainer. It was actually beautiful weather our entire trip, which is rather odd for Seattle in the middle of March. No rain makes me a happy traveler.
Don't you love Becca's running man? Ha ha! At night we played Nurtz and for any of you that know Becca and know how crazy she can get you can imagine that it wasn’t very fun for Nick and I and the three games maximum we agreed to play. Instead we played a ton of Yathezz, Golf and Harry Potter (a game that does have an official name, we just don’t know what it is).
On Sunday Becca took us to the Fremont Market (I love/am a sucker for open markets), the Fremont Troll, Gas Works Park and to church. We met all her flings. Oolala! Let me tell you something… Becca is big deal in Seattle.
We love Becca and are so glad that she begged and pleaded with us to come up. It was well worth the trip.

We celebrated Christmas at my dad's house with my favorite kitty Tigg, short for Tigger. I know, very original, but I was like 12 years old when I named him. Nick and I got lots of stuff in our stockings and had a wonderful time celebrating with my family and Nick's.
Me and Nick with all our Christmas loot.
I know this is way late, but we hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year!
