The Tough Guy

Some of you might know that last week Mark went to The Tough Guy Competition.  He was gone all day Sunday and when he came back he looked beat.  It was a crazy obstacle course filled with mud pits and rope walls and more mud pits and tunnels.  The next day we were all very nice and let him sleep in.  When he woke up he was so sore he was walking up and down the stairs like an old man.  He said that there were at least 2,000 people there participating. Here are some of the pics.

I had to post the first picture.  Mark isn't in it but he said there were people there dressed up.  I just thought the blue man group with the sock hats were hilarious.  The second is Mark running.  Mark looks pretty muddy but check out the guy behind him.  The third is Mark at the end of the race.  If you want to know more about the race you can look up the url.  It's  

Other than the tough guy competition we have just been relaxing.  I've just been working on scrapbooking and card making.  Gwyneth has been perfecting her walking.  Aurora and Corina have been playing lots of dress up and doing lots of crafts.  

One more thing I must say is that this has been one of the weirdest summers.  the hottest is has gotten here is 80 degress.  Today it is 70 degrees. We have hardly went swimming this year. (Mark and Corina just went swimming once at the health club that is pretty close.)  They are saying though that this is one of the best summers they have had in a while.  Hmmm.  

Until next week.

  1. Congratulations Mark for completing that course! I couldn't do it for a million dollars.

    And by the way, please feel free to take some of our excess heat! This summer has been a scorcher here.
