We (Widget and I) arrived early to eat breakfast. Widget doesn't always eat bananas, but when she does-Look Out! She can scarf a banana down in nearly 12 seconds...unless she can see the little black 'seeds' in the banana, then she wont even touch it. She has issues with seeds :)
We met my husband's Aunt and Uncle (and their daughter) at the race, and spent most of the walk right beside them. Sorry Aunt M for the not-so-fabulous picture...it's the only one I got.
I stopped the stroller at the 1/2 way mark, and made one of the volunteers take our picture. Widget was not really thrilled with smiling, and she used her sucker as an excuse, "But I NEED to finish my suuhhkerrrr, Mommmmeeeee!" I told the guy taking the picture to get both of us, and the sign in the background, in the frame. He took two for good measure:
After the race (is it really a race when you are walking???), the volunteers served orange slices, more bananas, apples, juice and sandwich cookies. Apparently we need the extra processed sugar to accompany fresh fruit...in all honesty, I only ate the cookies :)
Widge and Cousin Kenna also spent some time eating cookies, and posing for pictures. Don't they look exhausted? Both ran in the race, although only one of them for longer than 60 seconds :)
Are you and/or your family into running? Races? Do you have any fun races planned during the rest of the summer?
