Memorial Day Weekend

Three years ago we started the tradition of doing the Get Your Rear in Gear 5k for Colon and Rectal Cancer research.  We do this race each year in memory of my Uncle Doug.  The race is always on the Sunday night of Memorial Day weekend.  After our non-sleeping vacation to Texas we made the decision to not have any over nights stays away from home for a very long time.  So we made a up and back trip to Kansas on Sunday.  It was a fun trip.  We started the trip with a visit to Winfield to visit Grandpa Sisson.

 After visiting Grandpa we made a quick stop for lunch with my mom before she had to go to work.  Then we headed to Dad and Terry's to spend the afternoon before the race.  Brennen and Brylee were spending the week there and the girls were very excited for cousin time.

The only way to get a picture of Brennen was to tell him it was for Auntie Jessica :)

 It isn't a trip to Grandpa Kent's without driving the lawn mower.

Here are some pictures from the race.  Hadley, Jillian, Brennen and Brylee all walked the 1 mile fun run with Dad and Terry.  Then Mike and I, Hadley, Jillian and Trenton walked the 5K.  Jillian only made it through the first half of the 5K and then she was done and stayed with Dad and Terry while we finished.

It was a fun time and we look forward to it each year.
