A Pink and Green Weekend

On Friday afternoon Sophie and I headed to Fort Worth for the weekend. We got there just in time to eat Mimi's yummy homemade stew with Lindsey, Aunt Edie, and Aunt Kay. Then the 2 of us went to Lindsey's house for the night. We made cookies and watched Haley Mills movies.

Then next morning we were all up bright and early to head downtown for The Race for the Cure.

We were running for my Mimi who survived breast cancer this year.
Sophie did the 1 mile with my Aunt Edie

Then Lindsey and I ran the 5K.
Our reward after the runs was pedicures!

That afternoon we all went to my Uncle Roger's house. Roger lives right down the street from a nature preserve with a beautiful field of flowers and a nature trail. Once a year they have Prairie Fest with music, dancing, booths, and wildflower walks.

Smelling the Sage ( I think)

Then we walked back to Roger's house and had a wonderful meal outside.

Quite possibly the best burger I've ever had. My uncle is quite the cook.
All of us look a lot alike even when we don't have on matching shirts.
After the meal we had to go back down to Prairie Fest because we COULDN'T miss watching the Brazen Bellies dance

What a wonderful family filled weekend!
