For my clamoring masses

Here we are, The Save The Earth Supergirls!
Close up of Anna's cape:
Close up of her shirt, which says "Save Our Planet." Mine said, "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle."
We were thrilled with our costumes, but we didn't win a prize. The costumes are amazing - there was a "couple" on an internet blind date, flowers in a pot, characters from Hairspray, Olympic Ping Pong Gold medalists, Wonder Woman twins, Native Americans, etc. The ladies on the right below won second place for costume.



We did have a great time, running between mystery events, carrying a rubber chicken, swimming in the lake with our float. At the end you run the gauntlet, a fun obstacle course. Then Anna's favorite part -- every finisher gets a medal. I wish they would have let Kareen and her son Cole participate, but they are pretty strict on the women only part, even for innocent little kids. Colin would love to do it, too, but he does enjoy the free Home Depot craft offered every year for kids.

Anna is already thinking of costume ideas for next year.

Wahoo. But I see less than a yard of green fabric on that 7 yr-old, for sure! ;) And where are you?

What, no Super Girls Winner!?!?!?! Not only are they cute costumes but looks like they were easy to compete in, too.
Love, Nana

I"m glad you two had fun, and the costumes look fantastic! I may try to talk my girls into using the tables idea for Halloween.
