Run, Kate, Run!

About a month ago we signed Kate up for a Toddler Trot/Diaper Derby. We thought it would be a fun outing for a Saturday afternoon. And after we told Kate all about it, she was totally looking forward to it.

Unfortunately the race was being hosted at the tail end of our family's recovery from the Rotavirus. We almost didn't go. Kate didn't care much about being sick though. She was more psyched to "run a race."

She had to run 40 feet from mom to dad. Since I was pumping Kate up and cheering her on, I didn't get to take pictures of the actual race. I did take a few though of her warming up and waiting to hear the results. I think she may have come in second place but they only awarded first. Besides still feeling under the weather, another racer next to her ran right into her. When the kids heard "go" some of them got a bit confused. Oh well.

She may not have won first place, but we all had a great time. She was so excited to receive a gold medal for her participation. And look how proud dad is.
