Bogue Chitta Adventure Race

For the Ides of March, which is March 15th in case you didn't know, ((Dad and Jen - I'm still waiting on my $100.00!!!! :)), we celebrated by camping out the night before Wadie's second Bogue Chitta Adventure Race!  Here is the link to the last race we did there in 2011...  the pictures of Andrew and Callie are unreal!!  They have grown SO much!!!! Bogue Chitta Race 2011

Here are the little bunnies making s'mores the night before the big race!

At 8 AM, the boys picked up their maps!

Good luck snuggles right before race time!

Waiting to send Daddy and Poppa off!

Rylie ready to cheer on her favorite Uncle Wadie!

Team Krunk: Amber, Mr. Billy, and Wade!!

Aaaaaand they're off!

And so it begins at 9 AM.

Still feeling good at 9:30..

And it was probably around 10:30 AM when Mr. Billy said he was having chest pains.... uh ohhhhh!!

Thankfully, Nathan was there to help fill in so that Mr. Billy could rest for the remainder of the race!

At 11:30, we set up a picnic while waiting for our team to stop at their Mystery Event!

Jenny and her baby... for only 2 more months!!!!

Here they come!!!!!!

3 hours into the race and still feeling good... until they see what they have to do!

Make a sled, drag one teammate to the line, switch a person, and then drag it back. Across the sand.  In the heat. Soooooo suuuuuuper fuuuuuun!!!!!  Hah!!!

Amber needed some refreshment after that challenge!

And a tan.  :))

And finally, four hours later, Team Krunk crossed the finish line!!!!!!!!!  Hooorayyyyy!!

Enjoying his well-earned dinner!!

Discussing the team's strengths and weaknesses... ;)

That afternoon, we took a stroll through the woods before we headed out!

Cousins and best little friends!!

Amber showing off her fancy tan lines!! Niiiiice!!  :))

So proud of my beautiful husband!!!!  Way to go, Wadie!
 Bogue Chitta - we will be back!!!!  :))
