Family Olympics

We were invited to participate in a night of Olympic competition, family style.

Showing our muscles before the competition began.  I especially love how Keeks is practically shaking and how bored Eric looks.

Kyra and Amy show our team uniforms.  Nothing but the best or at least the best we could do in 30 minutes before competition started.  What can I say; I'm a procrastinator.

The cheering section getting into the spirit.

Ian and I compete in the discus.  He did better than me, by a lot.

Jared getting some last minute coaching from the referee before he threw his javelin for a GOLD medal!!

Ian cheers for Eric after his BRONZE medal throw in the javelin.  The Shannon's ruled this event!

Amy is going to rock the chariot race. 

Kyra didn't want to run because her horse wasn't pink.  She and I ran the race together with her crying the whole time that she needed a pink horse to race. 

Tara ran hard in the short sprint

Rocking the face paint
Even the boys liked the paint

Then we all ran the relay.  Our family ran 13 laps to make a mile.  It was super fun with lots of cheering and some healthy competition.

We had a great time.  And we all got medals to prove it .
