The Relaxening

Another great day to donate! Two marathons and two charities! Let's raise a combined $6,500 for cancer research through Fred's Team and low-income seniors with Housing Opportunities and Maintenance for the Elderly (H.O.M.E.)!

Donate to H.O.M.E. here. Donate to Fred's Team here. More information here and at the top of the blog!

Showing our sweet commemorative tats.
I have some really wonderful friends. This was our third Relaxening, and first at the Chesapeake Bay. Each year the days are filled with all sorts of activities like sitting, eating, talking, and otherwise being together. And the nights look much like the days. (Though we keep going to bed earlier and earlier. Adam and I had a race to see who could fall asleep faster during our after-dinner conversation. I'm pretty sure I won.) While lovely, this weekend was far too short. I wanted at least an extra day with each of them. There was far to little time to catch up, to hear, to just be. 

Anyway, here are a few pictures to enjoy while you donate monies! 
The Bay and the liquid fire sand. The hottest weekend of the year.
We managed to squeeze in a few miles - and I managed to take a few pictures of the running route.
Amazingly I took zero pictures of corn. It seemed like we only ran through corn upon corn.
Eric had trouble lifting the bushel of crabs
We pretended that we would need a few sides.
Midway through. My lips were wrinkly from the old bay. Bourbon helped.
The aftermath. While the rest of us enjoyed the porch, Adam and Amrit cleaned the rest for cakes the next day.
The rental house listed a bit.
I even made it home with some fridge worthy artwork! Becca, whose signature was forged,
 was the one using my shorts as a tissue. And yet she still managed to be ridiculously cute.
