The Big Day is Tomorrow!

Yesterday I picked Ayden Jane up from school and her teacher said, as AJ was getting in the car, "have a good time on your trip this weekend."  Apparently, all AJ talked about all day was how we were going to Spartanburg.  It was very cute.  I am not sure we could have handled all the excitement, but we got some help because it was a busy night.  Ayden Jane had a soccer game and then a fall festival at school.  Lots of activity, lots of friends, lots of things to occupy all her energy!

She had trouble going to sleep but thankfully slept well.  She was up bright and early and after us to get going!  She and Gary took the dogs for some exercise before we left (and of course it was our way of running off some wiggles for AJ)  She talked nearly the entire 4 hours to Spartanburg.  We had hoped that if we ran her in the morning and left around lunch that she would sleep.  We walked around for the evening and had supper and introduced Ayden Jane to toys r us.  Yea, she liked it.

It seems like we have been talking about the 'big race' for so long.  I can't believe it is here!  We even have a few links to add to our chain yet.  We are taking it with us so we can get a picture of AJ with her chain by the OSS sign.  It will need to be blown up and saved.  It will be so much fun to retell the story of how she decided to take matters into her own hands and go 5k to fix her Krebs cycle.
