Hooray 5K: Action Photo updates!

Here's a link to the original post from 5/7/2016 -- I was pretty proud of myself for running a great race.

How'd I do?

I finished 4th. Official time was 21:02.

I am proud. 


Here are a few additional pics from teh race that I found on the official "Soaring Above the Storm" facebook page:

Up to Sterling Pond ( take two)

The last time we did this was a few years ago. Robby was in the backpack and it was just the three of us. This year, Robby hiked to the top by himself (2.2 miles, 880ft elevation increase) and back down again with only minimal help. And very few tears. Oh yeah -- and Annie was in the backpack, riding and snoozing.

We had a great time on a beautiful morning.

Another successful Camping trip

We took the crew to Smuggs again this year. We were joined by two other families this go 'round -- and it ended up being a blast!. Everyone had friends to play with, and the adults were given a little break in the evenings. All in all, another successful camping trip!

Video Games, straws, and coloring. Whatever it takes!
