As I mentioned in MY PREVIOUS POST, we (as in all three of us) spent this past weekend HERE....
We went to Kanopolis State Park because Marc was signed up to run in a 50-mile race (YEP -- 50 miles) called Rockin' K. Rockin' K is a race that is sponsored and "put on" by the Kansas Ultrarunners' Society -- of which Marc is the treasurer.
The race was on Saturday, but we arrived on Friday afternoon to get ourselves moved into and Luke napping in this cabin....
Luke ecstatic as he rode in the car there.
In the afternoon, during Luke's very non-existent nap (I tried, though), Marc went and helped the race organizers, Phil & Stacy. So, after Luke's non-existent nap, I went for a walk around the state park with our jogging stroller -- which we took along (and store on the cabin's deck -- locked up).
The stroller proved to be a very good thing to have along -- Luke napped briefly in it on Friday afternoon, and Luke and I used it on Saturday (more on Saturday in a future post).
But, moving on....to our Friday evening....
Luke played with bubbles quite a bit outside the cabin....The VERY STRONG Kansas winds we had this past weekend proved helpful to Luke and bubbles; otherwise, I'm not sure he would've gotten any bubbles.
Phil & Stacy (the race organizers) have a pre-race supper for the runners and their families. Stacy makes homemade meatballs (over 1,000 of them) to have spaghetti/meatballs, salad, and bread. YUMMY!!!!
Everybody gathers to eat at one of the shelters in the park.
And, to end this post....here are some photos of our family....
Luke -- sitting in the shelter before supper.
My two favorite guys (Marc & Luke) -- also in the shelter before supper.
Luke -- hanging out after supper -- outside!
And, how about Luke and his Mama after supper -- again, outside!
And -- our latest family pic....
Stay turned for the "rest of the weekend" post -- coming soon!
Joyful and a little silly
