Boston Marathon Weekend Recap

(at home after completing the Boston Marathon)

Marathon Monday came and went. I can't believe how quickly it creeped up and just as quickly passed by. Alex kicked major asphalt and finished the race under his goal of 4 hours (3:48:45). I'm so incredibly proud of him and hope that someday, I'll be able to run a fraction of a marathon without dying.

We held a couple of fundraising events over the weekend leading up to the marathon and they were a lot of fun. The first was a karaoke contest held at a local bar. Jax and I were able to be there early on in the night, but had to leave as soon as things got started. You know how 1-yr-olds can't really hold their alcohol very well. (totally kidding... Jax can hold his alcohol just fine). :P While he was there, he even worked the crowd for us taking donations.

is it wrong to pimp your child so early?

he even got the singer to make a donation!

And Alex even took the stage to perform his rendition of I Believe In A Thing Called Love, by The Darkness. A definite crowd pleaser!

watch as he transforms from normal guy to karaoke monster

like father like son

Well, the little guy just woke up from his nap so that's all the time I have. We're still looking to close the gap in our fundraising goal (we have until May). Anyone have any ideas??? I'd love to hear them. I'm also thinking of having another jewelry raffle... not sure yet, but I guess it wouldn't hurt. Every little bit helps.
