Friday night was the pre-race spaghetti dinner at Huntsville Middle School and we all attended. The dinner was catered by Carrabba’s and was really good. They had ziti (with or without meat), Caesar salad, bread, and brownies and cookies for dessert. We all arrived a little bit after 5:00 and there were not a ton of people there yet, but as we were leaving there were a lot of people coming in so I would say we ate at just the right time.
Troy had red punch, can you tell?
After we ate, we went outside and looked at the luminaries. You could buy a pink bag for a luminary for a loved one who has battled breast cancer. Troy and Ashlyn got two bags for their Auntie Michelle.
We ran into some friends that we knew from church and talked to them for a while and then Jackie and I went over and had our picture taken by a pink tractor. There was a little boy named Steven sitting/playing on the tractor and he wasn’t too keen about getting down so we told his mom he could stay in the picture.
It was a nice evening spent with good friends and good food, which is always an excellent combination.
Up next… race day!
