How you like them apples?

This past weekend we traveled to New Hampshire to participate in a half-marathon relay.  I honestly was quite surprised with how they did; they placed 4th out of 37 teams in their division!  That being said the only reason that they did the race was for the homemade goodies, namely the Apple crisp, at the finish.

There was apple crisp as far as the eye could see...and the nose could smell...(note that the apple crisp you see was the top layer of a zillion layers!!!! woopee!
...plus there were these homemade delicacies....notice the Apple crisp in the background?
We also met this cute pup whose name I forgot.

And, finally, me sporting my very own finishers medal

Those are my most favorite days:

The ones that start with a good hard run and end with some serious feasting. Your folks know where it's at!

CIKHasher said...

Tazzy says 4th is pretty good, but that's because there weren't any kitty cats competing... :)

Well done!

Agatha and Archie said...

Eric said...

4th? That's fabbie!And our silly billy London Mayor Boris won't let them run in our one. Wagging outrageous. He must have been too busy helping count all the monopoly money needed to save the banks to notice their application. I'll have a bark at him and maybe a little nip next time I see him for you.

U.... you look sooper oooper special in your new necklace Toffee :)

Wags n kisses, Eric x x x

Clover said...

Hi Toffee!
Congrats to your parents! They look great! My mom is very jelly and now determined to get on the treadmill when she goes home, so she can run one of those too!! (She has been 'training' for a simple 5K for quite some time....)
Anyway, you do look really nice with that medal!
Love Clover xo

Toffee...that apple crisp looks divine!!! Hey we just watched that video bout the Dale who made it home...holy moly! That's amazing. Wonder what in the world his owner said when he looked out the window and saw him!

You ready for the Halloween Pawty? Toffee...I need to give you some pointers on flirting. Eric told me he's never been out on a date...I'm sure you can fix that state of affairs...

Ya wanna meet me for coffee at Starbucks and I can fill ya in on some tips???

Barkies...Laciegirl
