As I stated in my previous blog entry, my husband thought that Montgomery should be where we would do our Alabama half marathon. For the past couple of years he has really been researching his family via Ancestry.com and has found Aunts, Uncles and cousins that he never knew he had. Thus we did a half marathon in Arizona in February to meet “new” family. We did a half marathon in Nashville, TN in April and met a “new” cousin. And this past weekend, we just met another one of his cousins and his family.
His cousin Larry turned 70 on Saturday, October 12th. So when Larry’s son Patrick found out we’d be down there for a half marathon, he thought that would just add to the reason to throw a party! Even my husband’s brothers and their wives from Florida and Missouri drove to Alabama for this celebration.
It was a very nice dinner and was on the rooftop of one of the buildings in downtown Montgomery.
Although this made for a very long day, it was great to met family and I know it meant the world to my husband.
