Our 10th Annual Turkey Trot

For the past ten years our family has started off Thanksgiving Day at the Stoner boat launch in Shreveport for the annual Sportspectrum Turkey Trot.  Last year Daddy and Grandpa were watching the Saints play in Dallas, so Stella and I represented the family at the race and Cille stayed with Grandma Tonie.  This year we all got to go.  Cille was pretty excited to be included...
That's a heavy load you've got there, Daddy...
Early morning races are really a challenge for some people...
But being tired didn't dampen her enthusiasm...
Waiting for race time...
Family meeting to discuss strategy...
I am not a fan of this picture of Cille because the camera caught her sweet little jowls mid-jog and it is not a flattering look, but this was the best picture we had of the start of the race...
Heading into the woods along the scenic Red River...
Here they come!
And there they go!

Checking out the competition...
The home stretch...

She's almost there...
Hooray!  Stella likes to point out that she is the only person in our family who won a medal because she ran the fastest...
Showing off her hardware...
And her princess hands.  Her idea, I swear...

Cille spotted a few strange birds nearby and had to check them out...
She was very curious about this lady's turkey hat...
And also a little mistrustful..
"Let's go home!  I'm ready to eat some turkey!"
