It has been a while since we updated this site. We just haven't had anything significant to write about lately, though we've definitely been keeping busy! Despite a horrible illness for Benjamin and I, we all survived two acting gigs for me and a visit from Grandma and Grandpa Andrews two weekends ago. The murder mystery went well again, it was so much fun. This past weekend we hosted Grandma and Grandpa Schmitt, who hadn't been down to Rochester in quite some time. Mike and I were able to participate in a race this past Sunday, which Mike had helped to organize. There were two distances at Lace Up Against Breast Cancer: a half marathon and a 5k. Mike braved the cold and snow to complete the entire 13.1 miles (it turned out to be even further than that in the end) and I did the 5k. It was a rough run, but Mike was able to catch up to me just as I was getting close to the finish, so we finished together! That evening we drove up to St. Paul to Andy and Jennifer's house to enjoy a fine German meal in honor of their birthdays. It was nice to see everyone and Benjamin really enjoyed causing trouble with his cousin, AJ! This weekend we will be hosting our annual Academy Awards party. I think it is the 6th party we have hosted; we missed a year because we were in England.
And, of course, Mike and I are counting down the days until we leave for Hawaii. In case you're wondering, it is 8 DAYS! I'm sure we will be adding photos and updates on our trip soon, so check back!
