going to the lodge....going to the lodge...

We had Christmas in March! My mother gave us a night at the Great Wolf Lodge for Christmas! We had a blast. What a place! Lots to do. The rooms were great, they had bunk beds for the kids! Kinda felt like we were at Disney World!

Spent some time in the arcade. My kids love the tickets!! So does Memaw! That is one thing I remember when I was a kid, my mom liked the games too, almost more than me.

Our Christmas present from our husbands!

On the flight at 5:20 a.m. We landed in Vegas at 7:30...what's a girl to do in Vegas at 7:30 in the morning without a room to sleep? I guess we should have some mimosa's...;)
we had a spa day...

had some margaritas...

and the reason for the trip....we saw Celine! Man that girl can sing!

Good times with my bestie!

yes, I said 126 miles!

This is a shot of the I-10 bridge coming over the Mighty Mississippi River. The start of the race. Mike started the race Friday night at 8:00. Forecast called for rain...and lots of it!

Some of Mike's family that came out to kick off the start.

Nathan and I stopped to see the sights along the river road. Mike ran 126 and I rode 126.

Very proud of him!!! He wanted to quit about mile 102...I said no! run it in...
Here it is...the finish line...after all the rain, wild dogs, lighting, crazy parties...he made it! 34 hours and 23 minutes. Nathan brought him home, running with him for about 30 miles! This is what Mike wanted! He turned 40 a week before this race and this is how he wanted to celebrate! crazy, I know!

Here they are after the hour ride back to Plaquimine, where we were greeted with some of Uncle Jimmy's finest! Some kind of crab/shrimp mixture! After a long nap we dug in...

Here is a little video of the rain....poor Mike!
