And the fork goes to...

JARED!! WOO HOO!

Jared won first place in a race for kids under 5 years old at Dan's company picnic last weekend. He was given a fork at the finish line (f for fork and for FIRST place) to take over to the prize booth to receive his prize (which was a plastic toy sized surf board with a little plastic surfer guy--Jared thought it was just the coolest EVER!)

I can't take away his glory of winning first place, but look closely in the background and check out his competition... The kid that got second place was probably 3 or 3.5, and then there was a 2-ish year old, and then Connor (which, if you'll notice, is WAYYYYYY in the back and hasn't actually even started running yet!!)

You know he'll remember this for the rest of his life and always look back and smile! They probably could have given him an empty plastic bag as a prize and he would still have been excited and proud! That's the beauty of children!!!!!!!
