Cookie Chaser

Sam and I did a 2k fun run with Osie and Laura.  We had 8 inches of snow when we woke up that morning, but there was less in Riverton, so we still did it!  We got up early and bundled up, so I look super pretty.

Posing just before the start of the race.  Sam is a ninja.  Osie is a princess.  Pretty sure they were born that way!

I love that they're buds!

Another unflattering picture of me, but it was cold!  I wore my ugly green sweats...and no one looks good with a blue t-shirt over a brown coat.  No one.  Okay, so Sam isn't even wearing a coat, but he's impervious to cold like his father.  I hope Sam and I can do lots of races together in the future...when I'm not pregnant...and it's not snowing...and I'm in better shape!

The "activities" touted on the website.  They made it sound like a grandiose, amazing kid area.  It was bean bag toss.  Don't get me wrong, they loved it, but it was a pretty big letdown for the adults.  We laughed about it for a while.  I believe the website called it the "Kiddie Corral" for parents who were also running the 5k.  Um...not so much.

I think the best part of the morning was our amazing realization.  Girl Scouts=Cookies, right?  This was a Girl Scout fundraiser.  However, there were no girl scout cookies ANYWHERE!!  So the organizers provided Costco cookies and fruit to the runners.  Costco cookies!  Laura asked one of the organizers if they were selling girl scout cookies and she said, "No, but that's a really good idea.  I'll suggest that for next year."  Um...okay.  All in all, it was a fun morning with our cousin!
