From the twinkling lights of Las Vegas

From my room at the Mandalay Bay this is what I saw, just a small portion of twinkling lights in Las Vegas.

I left Las Vegas just in time to see the twinkling diamond on Holly's finger. Yeppers, the kid has a date. She and Joe will be married on May 5, 2011. So exciting.

Flying into Portland, I witnessed more than 9,000 runners flying around.

Yes, we were amongst the 70,000 plus spectators for the 39th Annual Portland Marathon.

It was quite the proud moment when Megan rounded the corner at 1st and Salmon with less than a mile to go to the finish.

Clocking in at 4 hours, 50 minutes and 51 seconds,

Megan finished her first marathon.

Of course how could she possibly go wrong with the best fan club, ever.

A victory kiss is high priority.

Stats say every runner has 4 people there to watch them, Megan had 12.

And it wouldn't be Portland if you didn't have a rose and a cup of coffee at the end of the race.

Hey kidlet...

The fat lady sang and we are ever so proud of you.

Ready for next year?
