Luke ran his first 2-mile run, October 1, 2006. He ran the kid's run at the Portland Marthon. He did a great job...ran the entire thing without stopping and finished strong! Martin ran again this year and a couple of their friends ran along too. It was a fun day of memories. The boys are looking forward to running again next year. Posted by Picasa

I love this shot. It is great to have Darin running with him so we could get these great action shots. He is having a great time!! Posted by Picasa

Here is Luke running towards the finish line. (the time you see is the time for the 5-milers who started before the kid's run) Posted by Picasa

Here are our two clowns! Posted by Picasa

The boys won a coloring contest with 104.1 the Fish radio station here in Portland!!! The prize packages for the 6 winners were 2 tickets to the circus, a private talk and demostration from the circus staff, and a private suite to view the circus with comfy chairs, etc. It was a great time and it was a great lesson as to why it never hurts to enter a contest, because you never know when you might win. I really like this photo, because it was taken by a member of the circus...eventhough you can't see Luke's eyes....he was having a blast.Posted by Picasa

Here we are doing the warm-up activities with the clowns in our private session. Posted by Picasa

We got to go to 3 different stations. This is the balancing of the feathers, there was the hula hoops, and the ribbon twirling. We received instructions from the circus staff. Pretty cool! (Darin captured all our fun on video and photos) Posted by Picasa

The boys and I went to visit Grandma and Grandpa Pfeiffer at the condo. They had the pool remodeled and the boys enjoyed several hours of swimming. Posted by Picasa

Martin went on a 4 mile walk on the beach with Grandpa Pfeiffer. He found 20 full sand dollars and several shells. He is holding the biggest one, which is his favorite. Posted by Picasa
