Lake Tahoe Relay 2013

We're back from Tahoe & had another great year at the Lake Tahoe Relay. The drive went pretty well- I think the kids are used to these long drives by now. Plus we have a system that makes it SO MUCH easier- certain places we stop, treats we always have, & activities they always do in the car too.
 We had a blast hanging out with our fantastic family and getting ready for the race- putting together the goodie bags & t-shirts!
 Here we are at the start/finish line. Yup, we have the coolest family ever!
 It's a lot of work and it was HOT the day of the race but it is SO MUCH FUN! I helped direct traffic on one of the legs (my first time ever) and it was a blast. Each leg decorates their area and the timers dress up. Our leg was zombies & it ended up being a lot of fun! I  did the zombie make-up for the timers on my leg.The kids were in charge of handing out the awards and Scott is a timer at the finish line as well as a IT guy. Like I said, lots of work but SO worth it!
My mom in law also bought the kids matching outfit for cousin pictures- just look at these kids!
Woo-hoo for another year down & next year is the 50th anniversary so if there was a year to do it this next year would be the one!
P.S. Past years: 2008. 2009, 2010, 2011, & 2012
