Super Grover Daddy!

It's a bird... NO it's a plane...

NO... it's SUPER GROVER DADDY!!!

On Saturday, Justin participated in a race called the Hell Run, in Smithville, TX. Appropriately named, the Hell Run combined a military style ropes course with a 5k and expected people to sign up...

AND apparently there ARE people in the world who think things like that sound FUN and they do in fact spend nearly an entire Saturday participating in them! Beyond me... simply beyond me! :)

Justin asked one of our good friend's Rachel and her boyfriend Justin to do it with him and they agreed, well kind of. Boyfriend Justin actually forgot to sign up (or he is actually SANE!) so he became the photog for the group. Rachel also knew a few other crazy people who were ready and willing to race it up so they had a nice little group of friends to make "hell" not seem like such a lonely place!

Don't they look full of hope and aspiration before the race... all flexing their muscles... in their fancy Super Grover capes, as Caden calls them?!

But then the race started... and they did things like this... Justin is in the yellow...
And this... again find the yellow shirt attached to the bobbing head...

And then TIRES... and this is NEAR the end... after nearly an hour of running UP hill and through the obstacles...
And then... they finish... still smiling...

And with medals...

And while they all say it was HARD and there were times when they thought hmmmm... was this worth it?! In the end they SAY it was SO MUCH FUN! Crazy people in this world I tell you... crazy!!

But, if you have a toddler at home who thinks you have ALREADY hung the moon and you show him your SUPER fancy medal and even better your COOL red cape... you'll get the best compliment anyone could ever hope for...

"Yook, Mommy... Super Grover Daddy!!"

That's right Caden... Daddy is a Super Grover Daddy and not just because he does things like the "Hell Run" but because he loves, cherishes, leads and supports our family to the VERY best of his ability and he affords us the FUN, EXCITEMENT and special moments we get to share as a family! And that definitely gives Daddy SUPERHERO status in my book!!

We are proud of you Super Grover Daddy! We love you!!

What a great job! Looks like he worked hard and had so much fun! I hope Caden is now wearing the cape around the house!
