son run in the sun

It is done.

Run With Lumber 2009 is in the books.

Everyone got a few laps in. Everyone got a root beer float. Everyone got a little frisbee thing. It is done.

Remember a while back I was still searching for a Lumber victim? Desperate times call for desperate measures. This year's Lumber was none other than.... dun dun duuuuuun.... our very own Chaco [APPLAUSE APPLAUSE].

Yes, I allowed my son to miss a day of school to run around in a furry suit with little children all day. In fact, I nearly begged him to do so.
He did a great job, though. Probably too good of a job, because the staff wants him to do it again next year... and the next. And, I think he actually had fun.

He probably still expects me to pay him that twenty bucks I promised, though.


  1. At least his heart (or is it paws) was in the right place. Looks like he enjoyed himself (or is that smile painted on?). Definitely worth the price to see him in a furry suit. Just make sure he doesn't start wearing it around the house.

    So, what was the results of the run?

  2. What a trooper! Chaco totally deserves twenty bucks. Maybe more! He fit the suit, he did a great job, was enthusiastic and made a good impression. That is priceless!

  3. Aw, what fun! That Chaco - he's a great kid!

  5. Haha - that's very cute. Hope the weather wasn't too warm - I've heard it gets kind of hot and sweaty in those things...
