The "50/20"! Joe and Joey walked 50 miles in 20 hours. Consecutively. I was able to be on the support team that did all the pit stops along the way. It was amazing to watch. Inspiring! I can't tell you how impressed I am that these two wonderful men can push themselves so hard. I don't think I ever got to post the pictures from last summer's Seattle to Portland (S.T.P.) bike trip, but that was 200+ miles on a bike and by the end of this 50/20 they both said that it was much harder than the STP.
Out of the 50+ boys and men that participated, these 8 finished the whole thing. SO proud!
Let's just say there were a few tears shed at the end of this adventure.
My Joey is 15!
And what better way to celebrate with this teenager than to take him down town to "Folk Life Festival", buy him a red velvet funnel cake, stick a big "15" candle in it and publicly humiliate him by getting a whole crowd of strangers to sing Happy Birthday. I love this kid more than words can say. (By the way, we took Joey to his first Folk Life Fest when he was 3 days old..... we were crazy new parents..... what can I say? :) )
