Busy Weekend (Saturday and Sunday)

I'm in a rush to head to bed, so this needs to be SHORT.

On the other hand, there's a LOT to cover from this weekend! So I guess I need to be QUICK.

Saturday Marilyn and I went to the Sing-Off (Emily was running it). Great venue and amazing performances! We couldn't stay for the whole thing, as we had other stuff we had to do...

On to the Health & Fitness Expo, in conjunction with the Rock 'n' Roll Portland Half Marathon. New venue this year -- and actually it was nice! Again, we didn't stay all that long, as we had another event to attend...

Finally, we went to Peninsula Park for the Junior Clown training -- which was so very cool! Those kids are amazing! They'll be participating in the Junior Parade with regular (adult) Clown Corps members. Amazing how much they could learn so fast! Angel is a great teacher!

Then we were up EARLY today to be downtown before the run, which begins and ends right near our building! So we couldn't park in the usual place, but had to park blocks away and walk in.

We got a lot of photos of the event. In fact, I got a lot of photos of all these events mentioned above!

It's going to be BUSY going forward -- but hopefully I won't miss another day of blogging, as I did yesterday. It's just difficult this time of year. But yesterday is the FIRST time I've missed blogging in 2013 (!!!), so I don't want to start missing...

Okay, time to head to bed. This is short, but better than nothing.

Oh! I also downloaded "Inferno" -- Dan Brown's new novel -- for my Kindle. My sister Sue told me about it this past week. (It was just released on May 14, I guess.) I've just started reading it, and as always I'm enjoying Dan's work...
