Great turnout at the annual Minnesota Street Rod Association Ladies Showcase. There were at least 40,000 people on the fairgrounds each day for the event. I was there to represent the American Heart Association and talk to the ladies about GO Red.
What a FUN weekend we had! I had the honor of judging the Miss Mt. Lake Pageant on Friday, June 12th. What an amazing group of young ladies. Hats off to the directors for running such a classy pageant. It was a tough job to pick a winner. Saturday the 13th was my 20th class reunion. Wow where does the time go? This is a picture of me andone of my best girlfriends Elise. We grew up neighbors so we have been friends for over 30 years, I think we could still pass for "Charlie's Angels". A special thank you to our host family the Adrian's. Once again they let us stay in their beautiful cabin and the kids had a blast!

Thanks to my good friend Julie for attending the Mrs. MN, IA and WI America pageant with me. Saturday June 6th was a busy day! After the Heart Walk in Sioux City, IA we made a quick trip to St. Paul, MN for the pageant. Congratulations to the 2009 winners.
OK, so the Iowa summer is not cooperating with our outdoor activities this year...On June 6th we attended the heart walk to raise money in memory of our loved ones for the American Heart Association. Over 800 people were registered for this annual event. The pouring rain made us walk a bit faster, but overall we had a great time. I spoke briefly at the event to thank all those brave souls for coming out in the weather and most importantly for supporting a great cause.
We Did it! Our victory photo after a hard days workout...this is my husband, me and our daughter after the sprint triathlon showing off our numbers. We have a couple more we are planning on doing this summer and with any luck we'll catch a day that doesn't have a 25 mile an hour wind working against us :))
