celebrating life!

January 15, 2011

This weekend took part of the wasilewski (dollard) clan to Florida. We all were able to celebrate life in the form of exercise and family bonding. Chrissy ( the sister n law) was running her first marathon (26.2 for Donna). This race was extra special because it was raising awareness and funds for breast cancer. Chrissy’s mom, a breast cancer survivor, was able to join us for the weekend and Chrissy was able to run in honor of her. We also ran in memory of my mom, Donna, who died of uterine cancer over 5 years ago. Karl and I were able to do the half marathon and then we met and ran the last several miles with Chrissy. She was such a trooper as she had been battling a GI bug a few days before and since! That made this accomplishment that much more impressive! Here are a few of my favorite race pics.

I probably should have waited to post this one til valentines day!  One of our friends during some foreign travels found a double decker chupa chup. She knew us too well! One of the things that Karl and I quickly found out about each other is our mutual love for these lollies! We even had them at our wedding as favors.  But the the dual flavor chupa chup= double the love!

not the prettiest picture though!

adventures in curling

January 6, 2011

No, not the hair, gym, or snuggling type.  The sport. Last night Karl and I made our debut as phenoms in the Canadian favorite pastime sport (besides hockey) curling.  It’s a lot more fun and harder than you can imagine. I think its my new favorite winter sport. Watch out 2014 olympics Team Erikarl is on the prowl!

caution

What a way to bring in the new month.  Lots of snow/ ice/ sleet everywhere! Hopefully mother nature is done and brings back calmer weather soon! Be careful out there!
