I went with a group of friends to the Bay to Breakers race in San Francisco yesterday. Here is a group photo and some of the interesting people I saw along the way. My friend Randy made matching t-shirts for us all and dubbed us the "Breaker Babes."
The winners of the 12K race finished in just over half an hour. I proceeded at a much more sedate pace, walking most of the way with my mouth wide open at the array of sights. I've never seen some of the things I saw, including many Elvises, a group of over 100 people dressed as salmon (all of whom ran the race upstream like good salmon -- from finish to start), several dozen bananas and more tutus than you could shake a stick at.
It was an amazing even and one I can't wait to do again next year.
Walter is photographed by a guy from the local weekly paper. We are forming a neighborhood association and the paper is doing a feature about it. The photographer asked for cute kids so I volunteered mine! The paper will be out in a couple of weeks. He shot some cute ones of Kayla and Lucy, too.
Kayla on the porch swing which is now conveniently located on the porch (vs. back yard). So far we've taken turns reading out there and napping, and Granger's friend Calhoun played a little guitar last night.
I re-covered the cushions with this green and blue striped fabric -- I impressed myself with my ability to make it the right size.
Walter uses a little body English to get the ball in the hoop. He and Granger have started playing a little ball lately and Walter is really excited about that. Granger is into ball because he's a Utah Jazz fan and the Jazz are leading the Golden State Warriors 3-1 in the playoffs. Game five tonight!
Walter and Big Bear went to the Teddy Bear Fair. Kayla and her stuffed monkey Cookie also went along. They have local doctors there at a "Well Bear Clinic," and Cookie got her left foot stitched up. Big Bear had a little cosmetic surgery on his nose. Click here to see a few more pictures from the day.
My nephew Matthew has graduated from Southern Utah University. With high honors, of course. Way to go Little Matt!! The other picture is with his proud parents, my brother Doug and his wife Larena. Good job, parents!!
