Great Strides

Saturday we got to participate in the Cystic Fibrosis Great Strides Walk. This is something we do every year to raise money for the CF Foundation and to support my niece, Lauren, who has CF. The kids love the activities they have there afterward.

This year the lunch was sponsored by Chick-fil-a. Talk about yummy chicken sandwiches! Anyway, they also had their "mascot" there:

The billboard with the cows writing, "Eat Mor Chikin" is still one of the most creative billboards I've seen ...

The boys ALWAYS love to see Cosmo. Maybe UVU's Wolverine didn't like that they weren't as excited to see him, so he gave bunny ears to Cosmo:

A little later, though, the boys had a guy build them balloon swords. The Wolverine came over to Tyler as he was eating lunch and challenged him. They dueled:

And then the Wolverine's sword deflated completely:

It was the funniest thing! I so wish I had the video camera going, because it was hilarious. Just look at Tyler's face. Too bad he was in the shade. But at least Paul got pics of the spontaneous (and unintentionally funny) duel.

There were also some really big fire trucks there, so the boys got to go in and try on some of the equipment:

It was hot to walk out in the sun, but we definitely enjoy it every year. It appears donations were down this year (not surprising) but hopefully they'll press onward and find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis soon!

What a fun time with the family and what a great cause! Tyler's sword fight is a real hi-lite! Looking forward to seeing all those special grandchildren soon!

Sounds like it was a good time. Hopefully we can make it next year!

Sorry I missed it this year. Be there next year. It is always a lot of fun.
