Three Things Thursday - R is for Remember

Our holiday weekend was so packed with fun.  I have to give you the Clifnotes version.
Or you'd probably stop reading half way through.

I ran.  and ran.  and ran.  and ran a race.
It's a 5k to remember.
details later.


We went to Ash lawn Highland which is the home of James Monroe.
We made candles and sweat. 
We made lanterns and paper hats and learned to dance and embored a flower and sweat..
We took the tour.
We hugged a tree

We made great memories.
We made soap which we'd need later from all the sweating.


We watched fireworks in the rain.

Even wet they were amazing!

We will remember 2011 as the year we watched them in the rain.


  1. Sounds fantastic! Looking forward to reading about the race.

  2. I love ash-lawn!! looks like you guys had a great time!

  3. That last photo is beautiful! I think the rain adds to the scenery!

  4. OK, those were just the CUTEST memories ever recorded in a blog. Thanks for sharing the fun.

  5. I love that last photo. And the idea of watching fireworks in the rain. It makes me smile.

  6. Lanterns.. you made lanterns! How cool!!! Hugging tree.. way cooler!
