We will be on vacation in 3 weeks...from today!! I'm so excited. We need a vacation, but doesn't everyone? Hayden is really excited to go to the beach and he can swim this year too. I think Carson will have a blast this year. He was only 7 months old last year when we went! So here's some pictures of last year's vacation, at the same place, and here's to summer vacation. Woo Hoo!!!!

He's Still the Man!!

Even though the MS 150 was cut to 86 miles this year, he's still the man! For the first time ever, the MS Society canceled day 2 of the race b/c severe weather was forecasted for Sunday. I don't think it rained a drop on Sunday!! Matt did, however, give a great, quick speech at the award dinner Friday night and ride 86 miles in 5 hours on Saturday!! In years past, I've watched that ride and always thought "man, all these people riding for folks they don't even know, like Matt's mom!" This year I looked at 3,000 strangers and thought "wow, they are doing this for ME and they don't even know who I am!!" That's a pretty good feeling that there are that many people out there who will raise thousands of dollars for MS research and THEN go out and ride miles and miles on a bike! One of my favorite thing about the MS 150 is Matt's team he rides with. Our friend Alyce was diagnosed with MS about 8 years ago and she and her husband decided to do the MS 150 with about 6 friends. They called their team the Feisty Devils. Their team now has about 300 people and have raised 1.2 million dollars!! Here's to my amazing husband and all the people out there I don't even know. Thank you!! And here's to the Feisty Devils....Riding Like Hell to Fight MS!!
