Luke has officially given up the race car bed he has had for the last 5 years. He realized he is too big for it and needed a new bed. Here he is helping dad put it together. He was so excited you would have thought we gave him $1,000!
This year was a lot hotter than last year's run. It was about 84 degrees and really humid. You can tell the heat was taking its toll on all the runners. Darin saw several barf spots on the course and one girl collapsed at the finish line and had to be taken away on a stretcher. I am glad I was just watching the run, because if I would have run I would have accounted for at least one barf spot and without a doubt would have had to be taken away on a stretcher!! There was also about double the amount of runners this year. They even ran out of water at the water station they had set up for finishing runners...YIKES!
Martin and Luke decided they needed to have a box in their tree house to keep some toys in so they wouldn't get bored. Here are a couple shots of the process. Martin cut this all by himself...looking at his face you can tell it was hard. Sorry no power saws allowed for children in this house.
