What is more fun that watching 16 of your grandkids run??? Today was my parents first annual Stan Pa and TamTam fun run. Held in Conway, MO where my prints live and where we all grow up, my sister organized all of it and did such a great job!!
Each child received an “invitation or registration letter” telling them how to enter and all the details they needed to know. The race fee was so expensive, a hug😁!
Race entry fee of hugs!
All the kids had so much fun!! Before they picked up their race packet, they had a group warm up led by my sister Casi! It was so fun to watch them stretch!
In each of their race packets, was their own race bibs that were pinned on just like a real race. After they received their bib, they had their pre race picture taken.
Pre race stretching and warm up!

After they got their picture taken they headed toward the start line! Their race goal was half a mile! They did an out and back route. We also an official race vehicle lol! My brother has an old Jeep looking thing that he uses on the farm.

They all did so good running! You could tell they were trying so hard! You want to learn to love running? Watch kids run! They smile the whole time and you can see pure joy on their faces! I could feel the inner running coach coming out lol! My oldest, Lyla, started way to fast and could barely catch her breath. I had to help her calm down and help her finish. My June bug pushed it! She came in fourth and was so proud.
The coach coming out lol

Every man runs with a chain-saw
You always need a race buddy

She said, “ I am winning!”
Race course volunteers!
Strollers and babies, they all ran!
After the race they all got goodie bags with Gatorade, juice box, trail mix, and a few other things! They absolutely loved these!
Days like today are huge reminders of what a blessing family is! My family is so precious to me! When we get together you never know what is going to happen, but one things is for sure, we will have fun! Our family runs together, drinks coffee together, laughs, and prays together!
The two that started this whole mess! Stan Pa & TamTam!
They play hard!
What a blessing family is!!
