Ellie’s Run for Africa 2011

This morning we participated in the annual Ellie’s Run for Africa. Here are the kids getting ready for the fun run. This was the first year for Luke and Lily to run, they were happy to finally strut their stuff!
Life wouldn’t be as fun without our good friends the Duckworth’s

Not sure if you can tell by this blurry picture, but that would be Lily- leading the pack. Nathaniel is in the back with Luke on his shoulders and I am holding Jack’s hand. Both the boys puttered out mid-way through the race but Lils finished strong.
Luke was most happy about all the free food at the end of the race, here he was replenishing his Vitamin C (it is hard work riding on Daddy’s shoulders!)

Jack not too sure about it, but little brother there to reassure him 🙂

Tonight at bedtime we put on our new race t-shirts to sleep in!
Mommy hopes we are worn out from the race and sleep tight tonight!
