the lake olympics ~ greased watermelon relays

granddaddy greased up two watermelons for some fun girls versus boys relays. little man and m1 are lined up for the start... after handing the melons off to their cousins they were neck and neck for a while. micadoodle pulled ahead and the girls won with a last second lunge across the finish line. huge roars erupted from the crowd. next was a free for all ~ two watermelons floating in the water... an all out run to fetch them then teamwork to get them back to the finish line.
this one was neck and neck, until a last second push by the boys rendered the race a tie. once again cheers erupted from the crowd and the lake olympics were declared a success. now time for a juicy watermelon snack.

john david presented the awards during the in-lake snacking.

m2 received the award for being the youngest competitor in an olympic event ever, her prize was a book, beach ball and $5 gift card to chick-fil-a.

m1 received the award for winning the opening event (soccer ball challenge) and having the all around best smile and most positive behavior. her prize was a jigsaw puzzle and a $5 gift card to chick-fil-a.
little man received the best team-mate award for being a key player in multiple team victories... all with different people. his prize was a notepad, mechanical pencil and $5 gift card to chick-fil-a.

dude received the strong-man award because his bulging muscles powered him through the kayak relay and the egg relay. his prize was a notepad, mechanical pencil and $5 gift card to chick-fil-a.

micadoodle received the flagship award for winning the event that was the most anticipated of the day, the individual kayak races. after handshakes for all in attendance, she accepted a bamboo beach blanket, googly eyes (she once hot glued a googly eye to her forehead so she would know what she would look like with three eyes ~ she learned that hot glue is, well, hot) and a $5 gift card to chick-fil-a.
