Trophy Night

The racing season has officially come to a close. There is a big part of me that is sad, because I really enjoyed watching them "compete" each week; but a small part of me is actually glad that they are all done!


Having three small children in one activity like this was a lot of work each week, but definitely worth the effort. Our Monday nights were never lacking excitement! The boys loved it, and they all did extremely well. They each completed six out of seven races (we missed one while gone on vacation), which was good for a "ka-trophy" (as Cameron says) at the awards night!



Ethan, just hanging out before the ceremony began...
"Would someone please get this show on the road?"


Daddy and his lil' racers!

Trophy time!

"Look at our awesome trophies!!"
(Ethan was actually looking at a squirrel...his trophy wasn't quite as exciting *giggle*)


Cameron--this picture was just too cute not to post. I am absolutely in love with his sweet little *broken* smile! It makes him even more unique than he ever was...


Col with his trophy....by this picture, some of the excitement had begun to wear off and the hunger pains were setting in!

"Enough pictures, Mom....can we please go EAT?"



The boys and Mommy


Mr. Ka-Trophy


" See? This one is mine, I won it all by myself."



" Mommy.....I LOVED the races!!"


Up next.....Colin starts SOCCER in three weeks! Agh! Where are my babies going?!

What a great thing to have for the boys. I wonder if they have anything like that around here. AND by the way, I've been out of the blog-world lately and your boys have GROWN UP while I was gone.....So adorable and they are all so, so cute!!!
