Graduation was on Thursday...
Brenden arrived in Lehi Friday night around midnight...
Saturday was my dirty dash race at 10 and a broadway production of Les Mis at 2. I drug Brenden along to the race to be our photographer, but couldn't help but see a prime opportunity for some mother/son crazy fun. After rounding up some too-large shoes from the donation pile and giving Brenden one of the 2 pairs of shorts that I wore to the race, he was set to be one of our runners on our team.
What a MUDDY, fun, MESSY race!
Brenden wasn't about to sit around and wait for all of us slow people, so he took off. As I saw him on a looping part of the course around mile 2, he said "hurry up, I'll wait for you at the top of the slide". When I came up to the top of the hill, he threw me into the mud. We checked the time at this point and it was 11:30. We had tickets to Les Mis at 2pm and still had to get home and shower, but we couldn't go down the big slide until our team had all caught up with us. I was getting nervous.
The last muddy puddle just before the finish line was a bit suspicious. Anyone who grows up on a farm knows the smell of cow poop from a mile away, and this smelled strangely familiar to this farm girl. I did not spend any extra time in it, that is for sure.

12:15... back to our car
12:45... pulled in to Lehi (covered in mud)
1:25... pulled out of the driveway
1:55... parked the car 2 blocks away from Capitol Theater
2:00... ran into the theater and the ushers said "30 seconds to doors closing"
found our seats and sat down, and the production began.
It doesn't get much tighter, time-wise, than that!!
What to say about Les Mis? The scene changes were amazing. The singing was awesome. Sharing it with Brenden (who had not been to this production before) was the best part. He was scheduled to leave for Alaska 3 days later, and it was so nice to just have mom solo time.
Topped off the evening with dinner with Hayden, Wade and Aspen at Macaroni Grill.
Crazy fun filled day.
