We went to a family reunion at my Aunt Soonja's house. Here's the Snook with her tiny, tiny "teacup" chihuahua.
My aunt lives on a lake, and it was so nice to be by the water. I've missed that.
My cousins are all having babies! This is me and my first cousin once removed Jaden. What a cutie.
Someone in the family brought this huge inflatable water slide for the little kids. It was crazy.
Me and my Grandma Harter. Love her!
Then it was Race Day! The Snook and I had agreed to run the Elkhart County Fair 5K Road Race with my Mom. (You can hear audio from the day in Geek Girl Runner Episode 9.) Here we are getting bussed to the starting line.
It was a hot day, and we had to wait while they cleared the traffic on the streets. (We were running on the actual parade route right before the parade.) Here we are trying to keep cool.
And here we are at the finish! The last half mile was inside the grandstand. Volunteers were handing out icy cold rags to the runners as they crossed the line. The Snook and I both met our goals and finished within 35 minutes.
The runners! Me, Rodd, my Mom, and my brother Joey (who ran in the children's race). We all did such a great job.
While we certainly didn't place in the race, Snookums actually won the grand door prize for the day: tickets to see "Lonestar" (a country band) perform at the Fair that week. Needless to say, we gave them away. :)
After the race it was time to explore the Fair. Ahhhh, the smell of deep fried food on a stick.
I like corn dogs, but this is just about the least appetizing thing I've ever seen in my life!
We finished up with some yummy ice cream. Here's Rodd and Joey enjoying theirs.
