Monster Kids Triathlon

Saturday was one for the books.  We woke up at 5am to prep for the kids triathlon.   Hundreds of kids participated in this event and it was amazing!  The boys had so much fun and I couldn't have been happier.   Cloudy was in the Leap Frog division of 4-6 year olds.  He swam 25 yards, biked 1 mile, and ran 1/3 mile.  I was at the end of the lane when he came out of the pool to help with his transition.  He looked at me and said "THIS IS SO MUCH FUN MOM" and off we went to the bike.  He was wicked fast on the bike and before I knew he was back and we were transitioning for the run.  As he approached the finish line  the announcer said "the kid with the coolest name of the race CLOUDY Carter!".   


We put his things together, grabbed refreshments and headed back to the pool to watch Ben (who had been waiting for an hour and half).  He did amazing!  He swam 75yards, rode 2miles and ran 1mi.  He was beaming that he passed kids on Jr road bikes, and he run was an easy 8min mile.  






In the evening we walked down to the community social.  We transformed our neighbors shop into a haunted house and had a costume contest.   
Cloudy was voted best costume for his age group.  Ben was voted most popular with the girls..(not really).All the girls wanted to touch Ben's costume, I told him it was something he would have to get used to (since he is so darn gorgeous).
