Picnic Prep

Location: Catskill, NY (High 82, Low 69)

We’ve had another nice week here in Catskill. I can’t believe how quickly the weeks are going by! We now have six weeks left until the half-marathon. Tomorrow we will be running seven miles on our long run for the week. That will be just over half the distance we will cover at the actual run, so I am feeling a little more confident about the end result. Smile Those miles are starting to add up fast now.

Tomorrow will be a busy day, because after we do our seven mile run, we are having a family bbq at my sister’s house. It will be great to see everyone as the last time was at our get-together last November.

My contribution to the festivities is a watermelon fruit basket, and today the kids were a big help getting it put together! (And I was grateful that my sister let me use her countertop – definitely more space than I would have had in my kitchen.)



Here is Hannah practicing her melon ball technique!





Oops – hit in the face with cantaloupe juice!





Big business going on here!


I forgot to get a picture of the finished product but I am sure I will get lots of pictures tomorrow. I will try to remember my camera too – had to put Harry to work with his phone today!
