    Oh dear, that embarrassed me a little bit. *fans red face*
    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

    We have been making the 40 minute drive to my parents house once a week (for the past 3) to take the kids swimming and picnic together. It is fun and exhausting. My parents are pretty up on the whole "wheat is bad" thing and the "sugar is bad" thing and they know grains aren't ideal as a whole, but they persist in gluten-free frankenproducts and bean dishes. Our picnics usually consist of fairly whole foods accompanied by "Grammy's gluten-free bread". Turkey and cheese sandwiches or almond butter and honey sandwiches with fruit, cheese sticks, hard boiled eggs, and a bunch of different veggies on the side. Often there are gluten-free rice chips on the side. Today was corn tortilla chips and chili bean dip with cheese, veggies and fruit. I pretty much never say anything about it, because I am grateful they are feeding us and just so grateful to have time with them. It could be worse food-wise. I just left their house feeling stuffed and bloated and having a slight reaction in my throat- itchy, burning, a bit of gland swelling. My body definitely reacted to the food. Essential oils helped quell things a bit, but I am glad those things are not a part of our regular diet. We were SO tired and groggy by the time we got home. Happily we got a bit of a nap this afternoon.
    We're looking forward to Cahoots tomorrow! I'm sure there will be grand messy pictures to come!

    Cahoots was fun! Not as fun as Dirty Dash. I know exactly the reasons why too! Everyone got there late due to road closures and traffic issues in the canyons. It was a new race and organization was not awesome. They didn't register people before and have them pick up packets like most races do, so we stood in line for a good hour or more before the race to sign a waiver and get our numbers. We started half and hour late and all the starting "waves" were screwed up resulting in huge lines at major obstacles. The few water stations they had were only in the first half of the race, badly stocked and out of water quickly. Now that I have that off my chest.... we went into it knowing it was a new race and that there would be hitches, but also determined to have fun and make it exciting. We also went dressed like this:


    We were required to make our own team flag and carry it with us through the race to be hung at the end. AND since one of us couldn't wear a cape without the other getting super-hero costume envy, and we figured we'd want one to keep anyway, we made two!
    I wish we'd had our mud-race photog there like we did with the last Dirty Dash, but we made do with our little water proof camera and the friends we made along the way. At the first big mud pit, I was reminded how much I love mud...


    ...and climbing things...



    ...and running around in a costume acting like a giant kid....



    ...oh, and this guy....



    (to be continued...)

    ... more pictures!

    Eleven years and 4 kids together and I have to say we make an amazing team! We tackled every obstacle without a hitch and loved every second (except maybe getting mud in our sinuses from having to fully submerge a few times- blech!).

    That looks super cool! We've got the Warrior Dash coming up next month (or the end of this month?) and a water proof disposable camera is a great idea. You look awesome!

    Thanks! We like them. And yes- I actually made a whole bunch of them back in March for a super hero birthday party and these have been kicking around the house.

    Warrior Dash! Sweet! We have Dirty Dash next month and WLB has Tough Mudder in October (which I so wish I was doing). 'Tis the season for mud! Huzzah!
