Today we got our photos from our half marathon we did on the Sunday of the May long weekend. It was a beautiful sunny day and wonderful race, enjoyable and relaxed. I was so glad to have Brent with me! We ran it in two minutes slower than I ran last year, in good time considering we were somewhat lacking in time to train! I like this picture because Brent is completely off the ground. This in the last hundred meters when we blasted past everyone sprinting. Brent went one way around people and I went the other, which is why you can't see me. We still crossed at exactly the same time.

How does your garden grow? Here is how my garden grows! My vegetable garden consists of (from right to left): radishes, carrots, beets, salad greens, spinach, garlic, dill. Four types of herbs, two from seed, to from plants. Top left oregano, top right mint. Bottom left basil. Bottom right thyme. Baby sunflower seedlings. Lupins from seed doing well. Also planted shasta daisies and obedient plant from seed. I really want some delphiniums at some point yet this spring!
Brent and I and Eric and Becky at the grad banquet. We (Dad and Mom B., Eric and Becky and Brent and I) went bowling after grad in our dress up clothes. Played two rounds., guys against girls. One serious, wherein the guys slaughtered the girls, and the second a very silly game in which Becky won! Becky and Kirstin watching. A couple more bowling pictures.
Happy Monday morning all! We had a very busy weekend at home...Jorgen and Kev's grad as well as some family time and we picked up a digital camera (!!). So here are some pictures of the events. Kevin and his friends...three of them with canes and top hats! The three tall boys. Jorgen and Kalie. :)

What an interesting weekend it shall be! This morning after Brent reviews a drawing with his dad, and I head to the University to pick up some books, we head out to Banff where we meet my faculty sponsor to do some initial general research at the Whyte Museum. Then we head to Red Deer to pick up our race packages and eat a pasta supper, then to my parents' house to stay overnight. Then up early and to Red Deer to run the Woody's RV Half marathon, then back to my parents' to shower and have a visit, then to Pattersons to visit there and then back to Calgary because I have to write a paper due Tuesday. Wow what a lot of driving! It's going to be fun though! Also, we saw my mum a bit this morning--she stayed overnight so that she could leave first thing this morning for her flight to Kelowna. She's going to visit her mum (my bedstemor) in Westbank for the day. Bedstemor is 95 and at times very lonely. I'm so glad my mum can do this! My main inspiration for writing is the fact that I was perusing the Lacombe Globe website this morning and came across an article about my brother-in-law, Kevin. As the article explains, he got Gold at the Provincial Skills Competition and is now going to Nationals in Halifax. We are very very proud of him! Edited to add: the article won't post correctly, but if you edit out the first http from the address, you should be able to view it...or you can follow the link from the Lacombe Globe homepage. --Female 1/2
