Take me out to the ball game...

Last Sunday, Resiterns headed out to Minute Maid Park for a family day at the Astros game. It was a gorgeous day in humidity, a breeze, sunshine, clear skies. All in all, it was a perfect day to take the family to a baseball game. We had a great time, and we want to thank Erin and Amanda for organizing this event!
We had cheap seats, but we were in the shade. It was perfect!

With the Zumbathon and Astros game, it was a fun and busy weekend for Resiterns. A few of us couldn't last till the end. :)

Resiterns hosted our first ever Zumbathon last Saturday! Everyone who went had a GREAT time, and former Resitern member, Laurie Hendricks, was such a fun Zumba instructor. We raised money for the Resource & Crisis Center of Galveston County, which is essentially a shelter for battered women and their children. Resiterns members bring monthly toiletry donations for the shelter to our meetings, so we decided that we would continue to support this great cause!

 Before the fun begins!

Our own personal Zumba instructor, Laurie! Thanks so much for volunteering your weekend! We all want you to make a DVD, so we can Zumba in our own living rooms!

 You can see by everyone's face what a fun time this event was!

Shake what your momma gave you! 

A great group of sweaty girls. : ) 

SO much fun! 

We even had door prizes...Zumba towels, a cookbook, a Fit to Run gift certificate and Fandango movie passes! 

A couple of our door prize winners

 We will definitely be doing another Zumbathon, and next time, we will pick a weekend where there aren't 500 other things going on in Galveston! : ) We still have some t-shirts left, so if you are interested in donating to a great cause and want to buy one for $10, let us know! The proceeds go to the RCC. We look forward to seeing you at the next Zumbathon!

Resitern of the Month!!!

Congratulations (a little bit late!) to our April Resitern of the Month, Amanda Keelen! Thank you for all that you do for Resiterns. We couldn't do it without you!!!

Bon Voyage

Saturday night we said farewell to three wonderful Resiterns couples at Olympia Grill on Pier 21. It was a fun night, but bittersweet knowing we are saying goodbye to our friends. We will miss you and wish you the best on your next adventure.
