Last Saturday we headed up the road for Jed’s half ironman distance race in Williamsburg, VA.

After getting all checked in and set up for the race, we arrived at our condo where Mattie Windsor was transformed into a fancy butterfly.

After a quiet evening and a good night of rest, it was race time!

 Jed headed out before dawn while Mattie Windsor, Lynn, and I arrived in plenty of time to make a sign and jump around in the bouncy house.  We enjoyed watching the professional athletes cross the line and learning about the amazing life stories of the other racers.  The MC of the event could not stop raving over Mattie Windsor’s red hair and blue eye and even presented her with her very own Challenge teddy bear.

And then it was time to cross the finish line with Jed!

The fun continued into the afternoon with a visit from Kathleen and Piper.

Even a brief rainstorm could not keep this girl from dancing.

So we went to the arcade and shot aliens in our bikinis.

And then tested out our driving skills.

We ended the day with an excellent meal at Prime46forty.  (A special thank you to our wee photographer.)

 The next morning we hit the outlets before our journey home.

I am not so sure that yellow is my color but Mattie Windsor insisted on snapping a picture!

Congratulations Jed and thank you for giving us such a fantastic weekend!
