For this Memorial Day holiday I went home to visit my family. I had five days off from work since we had so many snow days to make up (yay for being a teacher!). So, I took the train home (which I hate) to see my family (which I love).
For the first few days I hung out at home, relaxed, went shopping with my sister, and took a walk with my family. My dad even made mashed potatoes for me!
On Sunday, I raced 15 miles in a canoe with my partner Sara. I have raced every Memorial Day for the past twelve years! I enjoy canoeing very much, although I am very sore now. I was on a girl scout canoe team when I was younger, but now I race in the adult races. These races are held every year in Bainbridge, NY (General Clinton Canoe Regatta) check them out if you can! On Monday of every Memorial weekend there is a 70 mile race, which I competed in two years ago.
I hope you enjoy these pictures of my relaxing (and then very exhausting) Memorial Day weekend!
