During Commencement on Sunday and a trip I needed to take to the Kia Dealership on Monday, Erin's parents spent both days with Lily. They had a great time and so did Lily! The reason I had to go to the Kia Dealership which is about an hour away from where we live is because there was a recall on the gas straps. Apparently the gas straps that were on the car were not designed for salt that is layed down on the roads. While I was getting that done, the Owner of the dealership was trying to sell me a new car. I pretty much told him that if he'd like to do an even trade for the Kia I already own I'd be all for it. I think I ended that conversation by saying, "hey, it has new gas straps!"
On top of a great celebration of milestone birthdays this weekend, I was rewarded at our annual faculty/staff picnic yesterday along with many other members of the college community for walking over 175 miles in our annual walking contest which took place last month. I ended with a total of 229.77 miles! I participate in this contest each year and each year I've successfully either reached or surpassed the goal. Along with others that beat the 175 mile goal this year, I won a $75 gift card to Olympia Sports for my efforts! I should also mention that during the picnic the President led everyone in singing happy birthday to Lily!
