Sunday….the Josh Billings Runaground
Rob competes in the triathlon with his family
our brother-in-law bikes
rob and his brother canoe
and his sister runs
I, have the kids all day
after we watch the bikes go by we head down to the water to get a glimpse of the paddlers.
our friends have a team called Just Beat Jeff (jeff, being our brother-in-law)
the kids scream like crazy when they see Rob go by…”I love you daddy!” and he waves and smiles….and my heart melts.
after the race we head to the “after party”
we set up a picnic and enjoy the music
this year we tried the rock wall
Caroline participated in the kid run, a half mile course.
i love this picture of her at the end..with her 2 running coaches
as she ran by me her face lit up with the biggest smile…and again….my heart melted.
they gave each participant a ribbon for competing and she was so proud of it….and then they gave her a medal with a rainbow ribbon for placing 2nd place…of course Cooper was sad because he was to young to run AND he didn’t win a medal….but Caroline didn’t mind sharing..just for a quick minute any way.
