Vacation Snapshot #6

I love that the Ouray fire department doesn't mess around when it comes to the kids' races on July Fourth.  If you are going to go all out and be first across that line, then you deserve some cold hard cash.

No candy.
No Oriental Trading gizmo.
Straight cash.

Here are a few snapshots of our racers in action ... and a few of them came home a few dollars richer.

Ashley getting some pointers from her big sister.
"Run fast."

Aaron eyeing up the competition. "I could take you."

Norah and her friend working together ...
In, out, in, out, in, out.

And then there are the two cutie patooties ...

Please forgive my boisterous cheering and shaky camera-work.  It was pretty intense.

While I love Lydia's enthusiastic jumping and pride at hopping across that line in first place, I absolutely adore Cousin Bethany's potato sack walk/hopping and her "aw, shucks" response at the end.  But more than anything, I treasure what I didn't catch on camera ... Lydia splitting her winnings with her Beffy.

The true winner of the day!


  1. Ha! Love it! I need a copy of that video, I only have pics... Such winners!

  2. How cool that she shared the prize! That's a special girl, right there :)

  3. Waaaaaaay too cute. Love it!
