Bike-a-thon

I tried to load these pictures last week, but the site was having technical difficulties. I know I've been remiss in posting lately, but you could have been looking at these a week ago. It wasn't my fault. I'm must sayin'.

Sophie was one of the very first kids at the Bike-a-thon starting line.

Owen was there too. The Bike-a-thon was a family affair.

Try not to notice that Owen is riding Sophie's old (somewhat purple) Dora bike. He won't ride the other, more manly motorcycle he has.

A look of extreme Bike-a-thon concentration.

On your marks...get set...

There she goes! Sophie was a great bike-rider, and she even chose to go around the track 3 extra times.
Owen peddled (and by that I mean he pushed off the ground with his feet) for dear life to keep up with all those big kids. He was holding his own really well until Greg made eye contact with him. At that point, Owen preferred to finish the Bike-a-thon on foot.

Post Bike-a-thon cool down. Lydia was there too!
After the Bike-a-thon, the school hosted a fun family carnival. Our kids liked the petting zoo.




And they got their faces painted by Miss Emily, Sophie's teacher.


It was a great time! Thanks to all the family members who made contributions!
