What a busy, but wonderful weekend here for the Robbins family!

Friday night, our daughter Alexandra graduated from high school! We could not possibly be more proud of our girl.Am I allowed to brag a bit about my daughter on my blog? Well, of COURSE I am....after all, it's MY BLOG!!! Alex is a remarkable, beautiful, sweet young lady and she is gonna accomplish everything she has planned to do! Alex graduated 5th in her class and received the Senior Spanish Award! The Honor sash she is wearing in the photo is for being in Honors all 4 years. She is now going to be on her way to Gordon College where she will double major in Spanish and French. I will miss her more than I can say, but I am so excited for her to begin this next chapter in her life!!

After graduation we were invited to celebrate with Alex's best friend, Sarah and her family by having dinner with them at The Cromwell Diner! That was a lot of fun! Such a great family!!

On Saturday, Ray and I headed to Fairfield, CT with the Suburban loaded with band equipment to get ready for the upcoming Stratton Faxon Fairfield Half Marathon on Sunday morning. I was signed up to run the half and Ray and his band--Sundance Kidz would be performing for the runners at the Team Hole in the Wall cheer zone.

We hit some really bad traffic on the way, but we finally made it to Westport!

Saturday evening we had dinner reservations at The Dressing Room Restaurant.  This is a wonderful place that has out of this world food! We had made plans to go with our friends Michael and Joy Craig. Michael is also a member of Sundance Kidz. This would be their first time at The Dressing Room! This restaurant was built by actor Paul Newman and world renowned chef,  Michel Nischan. I love everything about this place!

I was so excited to see the THITW folks on the beach! It was especially nice seeing my friend Patty who was helping out at the Team tent! I also saw another friend, Jen who was running her first half for THITW!! SOOOOO exciting!!
This was the gathering place before the start of the race!

I actually ran with Jen a bit at one point before the 3 mile mark, where I DID decide to stop and call it a day as far as the running went.

This was probably my first time EVER not being upset at the thought of not finishing a race that I had started! Now--I don't want to shock anyone here too much--especially those of you who know me and my history of not being quite so  sensible when it comes to running---BUT---I am going to be conservative with my training and NOT DO ANYTHING CRAZY before NYC!!!! Yes, those words came from me--Pam Robbins!!

I had so much fun at the cheer zone, that I definitely was okay with  my DNF!
