Last weekend we helped out with the local triathlon by working at an aid station for the bikers.  We had a great time and look forward to helping (or participating) next year.  Brooks and Adlyn did a great job filling up the water cups and they brought along their music toys to cheer on the athletes.  The night before the event, I asked Adlyn what she was going to tell the bikers as they went by, she told me she was going to tell them to, "Drink!"  I thought she was going to respond with something like, "Go!", but that wasn't the case.  They got up early in the morning to help us out, and since they knew about their role and the fact that we talked about it for a good week, it made it easy for them to get out of bed at 6:30 AM. 

After the event, we went to the finish line at the park and let the kids play for a while.  Later that afternoon, they were playing Aid Station in the house with their tricycles.  One would hand out drinks while the other person rode by.  It was great!
