On Saturday, after Brian and I got some good climbing in and visited with some pals at Adventure Rock, we headed to Miller Park to join the Runnells family for the annual Brewers outing. This year, being that we weren't sure of our schedule when it was decision time, we opted not to get tickets for the game, but we were all in for the tailgate. The usual suspects were there -- almost all of the cousins, the debates over who is the #1 grandchild, the blonde brownies, and the butter horns -- and even Grandpa decided to join in on the fun. We chatted, we grilled, we drank, we laughed, and when it was game time, Brian and I scooped up Grandpa and headed out. I definitely wouldn't have minded spending more time with the gang, but it was also nice to have a bit of one-on-one time with Grandpa. It was also really nice, simple, and normal to spend a Saturday night watching football with BR, so I'd call our decision a good one.

It was great to spend time with family, to enjoy the simple things in life, laughter, love, and family. Here's hoping for a quick week because this weekend will be another one filled with family and fun. It's almost Al's Run time, which means Team Zoe will be out in full force, and my run buddy, JL, and I will be sparkling our way through five miles of running fun.
