Yeah for Moms!

What a way to spend a chilly Mother's Day morning in Kansas!  27 of us moms and kids left Louisburg at 6am and headed to Overland Park to participate in the Mother's Day 5K.

As you can see in the background, it is a tradition for groups to decorate a port-a-potty.  Ours was "The Powercat Potty" and we had a fabulous time covering it from head to toe in purple.  Being a Jayhawk myself, I liked to think of it as a LOUISBURG WILDCAT POTTY, but I must say I was very proud of the way it turned out.  During the race the boys stayed back to gift the Powercat Potty patrons with purple Hershey's kisses, chewing gum, and purple hand sanitizer.  Our potty placed 2nd in the competition to the group that wins it every year.  Can you say RIGGED?

All along the race course were husbands, dads, brothers and kids cheering on the special women in their lives.  Our own Andie even placed 3rd in her age group and 89th overall out of 3432 entrants!  

I can't think of any other way I would have wanted to spend Mother's Day morning.  We will definitely be adding this to our tradition list.

Our sentiments exactly Julia!
