My low this week has been attempting to organize myself, my hubby and my 3 kiddos for our big trip across the country to visit my dad and grandmother, “Ma.” I absolutely dread packing when traveling as I have a tendency to overpack quite a bit. So when I have to pack for myself and the kids – well, let’s just say that there are never enough suitcases. I always think… well, what if the weather gets really cold or what if it’s super hot and what about when it’s stormy… what if my kiddos get dirty and need a change of clothes, I have to bring my favorite pair of jeans… I’ve got to bring sneakers and flip flops for my kids, but how many? Oh and what about hats. Yep – that’s what goes through my head every single time I pack for a trip. Any tips for this overpacker?! 🙂
With all that being said, I am super excited to head to Massachusetts to see much of my extended family and to get a little rest & relaxation – stay tuned as I am sure my high for next week will include some photos of the fun times that we are sure to have.
So my high this week was most definitely the awesome bike race that I participated in on Saturday here in Boise along with my sister and 2 friends. The race, called the Ultimate Urban Challenge and benefitting the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Idaho, was basically a bike race where teams of four follow clues on bike to secret destinations and complete assigned challenges.
The challenges ranged from bowling, playing pool, kyaking, running through the Botanical Gardens, and even participating in a mock newscast. As you can see from the picture above and to the right, I got very into my role. 😉 Oh, and if you’re wondering about the awesome outfit, all teams were encouraged to dress up in costumes so we decided to wear matching pink leopard shorts and knee socks. LOL! What can I say, I seriously love being a dork! 😀
If you live in or near Boise, I highly encourage you to check out the Ultimate Urban Challenge next year – it benefits a great cause and it is so much fun!
