Racing Day

The last two days have been unusually warm for January (upper 50’s). We have been enjoying the weather immensely since an “arctic front” is supposed to be moving in tomorrow. Dude! I don’t like the sound of that at all!

Eli decided yesterday that we needed to celebrate the nice weather by having a Mid-Winter Race. Since I wasn’t wearing a bra when Eli voiced this suggestion, and since I don’t run anyway, I decided to be the official photographer for the Mid-Winter Race.

It started of well. Eli was raring to go, and Georgia didn’t quite understand what the heck was going on.

Eric and Eli were neck and neck, but poor little Georgia couldn’t quite keep up.

Eli won that race, and he and daddy decided to go for the best two out of three.

At this point, Georgia gave up, but decided to take this opportunity to head directly for the street.

We quickly caught her, and she and Eli decided to have a quick run on the sidewalk.

Then Georgia came in the house, took off her shoes and threw them in the cats’ water bowl.

I didn’t get a picture of that.

Cute pictures. Those kids are growing up just in the short time I've been reading your blog.

"Since I wasn’t wearing a bra...and since I don’t run anyway" sounds like me. I hate wearing a bra, and I can't run, so what the heck? Get out the camera!

Aw, no braless pics, what fun is that?
And the first time I read the last line, I thought Georgia had thrown up in the cat's bowl! So maybe shoes in there weren't SO bad after all???

Oh Georgia. I just love Georgia. :)

Tee said...

LOL ...and you call yourself the official photographer. Hmmph! LOL

OMG, I just LOVE the expression on Georgia's face in the first photo. Shoes in the water bowl...yup, typical stuff, 'eh?!
