(Long) Weekend Photo Bomb – 11/27 – 11/30

It’s been a nice long holiday weekend off of work and I’ve been busy with all sorts or activities.  I did 2 races (a 5k and a half marathon) and will have a full recap of those in the next few days, but in the meantime, here’s the long weekend in pictures:

Dinner and gambling at the casino.  Dad hasn’t quite figured out that the iPhone can be turned sideways to get everyone in the picture.  Mom and Patrick were the big winners of the night.


Catherine and I ran the Edison Park Turkey Trot 5k (like we do every year) in matching turkey headbands and tiger-print shorts.


My dear little cousin, Elizabeth.  We share a love for bread.  I told her that’s called carbo-loading and she helped me carbo-load for Saturday’s race  :)  On Friday, we celebrated her new baby brother’s Baptism.


Post-half marathon selfie.  Very cold!


All aboard!  The entire Smith family (and “SigOs” – significant others) took a Christmas trolley ride through the city.

A few of the girls, ready to go.

View of the Chicago skyline from Smith trolley stop #1.

 Dad and I at the Lincoln Park Zoo Lights – Smith trolley stop #2.


Things escalated quickly… even had to make a few extra stops for beer/champagne runs (and bathroom runs).

Started the weekend with gambling, why not end it with a little family gambling?   A pizza party after the trolley and a 30+ person game of LCR – Shannon was the big winner.


And another running selfie.  An easy 4 miles Sunday morning in my all purple outfit.  Just kidding, I put another shirt on over that, but thought it looked funny when I was wearing all purple so I had to take a picture.


So there’s the long weekend in pictures!  How was your long weekend?  What did you do??

Tell Me What YOU Think!
