2008 Castle Rock Trot 5k

Natalies excellent Magna-Doodle art.

We made it to the local Turkey Trot for the second year in a row.  It was slightly warmer this year (30 degrees) and no ice on the course.  Everyone had a great time.  Malcolm ran on ahead, I pushed Jessica in the stroller alongside Lindsey, and Mom and Natalie stuck together.

There were people, kids, dogs, strollers, wagons, you name it.  A very low-key ‘race’ and a perfect way to get ready for the big feast later.  The proceeds from the event go to a food bank, and they also take in lot of food donations so it is all for a good cause.

And were off!

And we're off!

This year the race site was moved to the county fairgrounds.  It made for a much nicer parking and registration arrangement.  The kids enjoyed muffins and juice before the race, and they also spotted clues along the course to solve a word puzzle and get a sticker afterwards.

Say turkey!

Jessica spotted her dream car, a pink/purple slug-bug.

Now we all have a 2nd round of matching shirts, and have started a great Thanksgiving Day tradition for our family.  Gobble, gobble!
