Krispy Kreme

 We had a Krispy Kreme filled weekend.  
Many of you already know about this, but for those of you that don't I can proudly announce that my darling hubby completed the Krispy Kreme Challenge in Raleigh, NC this past weekend.  Yes folks, he ran about two and a half miles, ate a dozen (soggy) Krispy Kreme donuts and ran two and a half miles back.  I am one proud wife (wink).  He and his best friend did it together and they made a great video that I happen to think is hilarious.  
Here is the link to the story and the video that Flint posted on Holy Turf.
And since the snow continued to fall while daddy was half way across the country, some of our very best friends came over to pick up Cilla and I.  Katie and Chris have two girls- their youngest, Avery, is only a couple of months younger than Cilla.  Cilla loves loves loves Katie and Chris and their girls.  She would move in with them if we would let her!  I love that she loves them so much and I hope and pray that they are the very best of friends when they all grow up!
So, the Allen's came to rescue the two Harris damsels and where did we head first but to Krispy Kreme....in honor of daddy!

I think our donuts were more yummy than the dozen that daddy ate!
Avery, Paige and Cilla being crazies together.
Besides the race, Flint got to check another line off his Bucket List.
He attended a Duke game.
Flint has always wanted to see the home team play in Cameron Indoor, the famous home of Duke basketball.
Everyone had a fun weekend!

I used to love the news coverage on the race when we lived in Raleigh. You made me crave a Krispy Kreme. Yummy.

I still can't believe he did it! I think it would ruin Krispy Kreme for me!! =P Loved hanging out with you and Cilla tonight!

That is too fun!! I thought for some reason that Krispy Kream went out of business, but maybe its just the one near our house? Maybe if they hosted these lil challenges, they'd have stayed open! Cute post!
