Monster Dash

The Junior League of Norman held its annual Monster Dash fundraiser on Saturday morning. Along with a 5K, there is a 1 Mile Fun Run where participants are encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes for the race.  It was a brisk morning, so Layla and Jenna added leg warmers to their get-up and then they were ready to pound the pavement!

The girls were just a little bit excited to get started.  Along with the mummy, they were the first ones to line up.

I think they were a little disappointed to learn they would be racing in their stroller.  

And we're off!  Do you know of anyone else who eats pretzels during a race?

Yay!  We made it!  Here we are crossing the finish line with our friend, Gray, and her mommy, Megn!

The girls were so proud of themselves for earning blue ribbons!

Here's Daddy with his Pig...

...and Mommy with her Chicken!

After the race, we lined up for the costume contest so the judges could get a good look at everyone.

We won!  We won!  Layla and Jenna tied for first place!  Look at the other cute girls who won trophies too!  There were some fantastic costumes!

We're so proud of our farm animals!

Jenna: "Look what I got!"

Layla: "Wow, this thing is shiny!"

  As soon as we got home, the girls collapsed in the kitchen and started gulping down their water.  I guess the race wore them out...or maybe the pretzels just made them thirsty.   

Our family had a great time at Monster Dash...good fun for a great cause, who could ask for anything more?
