But now we have fabulously clean carpets to enjoy in the interim. Thanks to Mr. Roy for usually going along with all my cleaning madness...next week...the windows!

The third leg was entrusted to sister Kay: Private Sullivan kicking it in cut off sweats...love it!
Tom waiting for mom with Katie...all cuteness
The anchor leg went to Honey:
Honey may not be an actual sister Sullivan, but she is definitely an honorary one. She owned the anchor leg even while stopping to provide aid to a passed out runner. She stayed helping the downed runner until the EMT's showed up, and than went on to pass all the runners that had not stopped to help. Just fabulous!
We had originally planned to have all 5 Sullivan sisters running, but with Holly and Bruce returning to Mexico for another dig we had to put that plan on the back burner for a little while.
So although Holly was missed, we officially completed our first sister's Sullivan "Epic Relay"
Much thanks to Katie "freak'n" Shaw, who spent the greater portion of the morning cheering us on and taking care of young nephews. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!
And of course to Mr. Roy who took my place for the morning and cheered me on. Thanks for the Love babe!

Roy's hair has a tendency to grow big and thick, and Roy has a tendency to not care if his hair is groomed to a public standard. I started to comment that he was looking surly and scraggly, but lately I've just told him flat out he's giving me the Chester the Molester Vibe. So when Roy said, "Should I shave my head?" last night, I was more than thrilled to grab the clippers and assist. It seriously felt like I was shaving a thick animal pelt...NASTY!
So for now Roy has dropped his surly persona and has busted out the beanies to keep his naked head warm from the encroaching fall temperatures. Speaking of which, I'm so excited for some beautiful crisp autumnal weather....there is nothing better, in my meager opinion!

When Roy and I moved into our little place we had so many pictures to hang up that I didn't even know where to put them. I just started hanging up anything and everything anywhere. The kitchen to me is one of the busiest rooms in the house and I just felt like it wasn't the room I wanted it to be. Don't get me wrong....Moses and the burning bush is a great picture, but it doesn't show any of our personality (really Roy could care less about this wall, but I thought of his wacky off-center character when I thought of this idea). Needless to say the wall had to be changed. Most of what I wanted to convey on this wall was "our life". It's not a stagnant project, in fact I plan on it growing and taking up more and more of the wall. The idea of seeing that visual progress in our life makes me so stoked! Here is just the beginning of "our life" wall: pics of places we've been, friends, family, etc.
So now I have this wall:
Making our way among the larger hoodoos
A harvest moon was just rising as we wondered back. I only wish I had a camera that could do it justice. Absolutely amazing!
The sunrise the next day was just as spectacular
Entering the narrows of the canyon and the amazing sandstone
Roy stretching out between two slaps of rock
I would say a most enjoyable trip was had by all!
