Good morning, it is Friday.
Yesterday was the Hershey's Track Meet. The "local" event was held at Auburn Riverside High school and was decently attended. Turned out to be a couple of large track teams and a few individuals like Preston and Hansen. The Auburn Parks track team was there, wearing light green, and the Renton Parks track team was there wearing dark blue. It was no problem to spot Hansen in orange and Preston in light blue. Both boys got to compete in three events. The first two in each event get to go to the state meet in Olympia if the schedule works out, I hear the state meet is huge. Preston got first in the 100m with a time of 12.75 seconds, 2nd in the 200m with a time of 28.57 seconds, and first in the standing long jump with a distance of 8'2". Preston was in the 13-14 age division because this track meet goes by the year you were born. Hansen also competed and did very well. Hansen was in the 9-10 division and placed first in the standing long jump at 5' 10", second in the 50m at 8.9 seconds, and did not place in the softball throw. So, these kids did very well against a couple of decent size track teams! Congrats Preston and Hansen! Here is a picture P and H with their ribbons.
Maren and Lillie had a very nice afternoon with out us boys. Lillie needed new ballet slippers for her recital this weekend, so they just happened to be in the same parking lot as Applebee's (Called Crapplebee's for the last few years for their horrible service in the past) is next to Payless Shoes. Maren and Lillie went rogue and ate at Applebee's! Half price appetizers and a fun logo can get those girls anytime. They had a nice dinner and then headed over to Coldstone for ice-cream! You should have seen Lillie try to lie to me about where they went to dinner when I got home. It is no secret that we don't go to Applebee's, and the girls were going to try to keep it a secret. While Lillie is becoming an excellent liar, she is not there just yet, besides, I am a good mind reader of little kids. I asked he where she went for dinner and she just looked down into her book she was reading an said, "Nowhere, why?" Her eyes shifting just a little. I knew right then it was Applebee's. Maren kept the same face for a minute, but they they shared the extra frys and a small burger they could not finish with us. Guess Applebee's is OK again.
See you tomorrow.
