Play by Play

Gator was at the top of his game Friday at the Safe Kids Fair. His event? The Diaper Derby. He would be participating in the fifth heat of the day. The pressure was on, the little girl in the pigtails next to him was definite competition. On the go and bribed by mom with a balloon and a toy truck, he flew. There were no distractions for Gator. The little boy who was laying on his belly crying did pose as a small detour, but he soon made it back to Auntie Lisa for the WIN!!!!! He would go to the finals... During finals he was cheered on by the best cheerleaders ever. NAMELY- Ry, Arli, Ellie J., Gogie-man, Tyden, Reagan and Tyler. We knew it might be tough; but, He showed no fear. Reminding him that "Speed, he is speed!" The announcer said; GO! He was off. Gator did so wonderful, a flawless performance... He WON, FIRST PLACE!!!! Our little half-hearted manskie won a running race.....WoHOOOOO! He got some amazing prizes (about 250.00$ worth)

We had a great time.

Ryleigh got her face painted, played with Arli, checked out the fire truck, colored on the wall, cheered for Gator, and loved seeing Ellie J.

She also went swimming and to a birthday party. She has had quite the day.

We are so grateful for full, happy days like today.

Go Gator Go! That was the cutest thing ever! I did get a pic of him and a little video, its not good but you can download it on your computer. I wish I was better prepared. I love how you call it free 99. You kill me. Thanks for the heads up and invite to the fair. I got your message and please don't feel bad. I totally wasn't expecting to be able to really spend time together, being a mom to Logan has taught me better than that!! If I get to say hello and how are you and maybe goodbye then I consider my outing a social success! You were SO nice to even stand in line with our crazy bunch. We love you. And yes, Gator is SPEED!
