"When Pigs Fly"

A few weeks ago a couple of coworkers TOLD me I was going to join their tractor pedal race team at the annual When Pigs Fly BBQ event that is held at the airport.   I figured why not....It was going to be a team from my workplace and we would see how we did.  If you were 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place you received a cash prize in which we would donate to our Giving Hope Cancer fund.  

Well.....some of the males in the names mentions (back row blue shirt) were getting a little on the mean side and said us women needed some males help.....long story short......we ended up competing against each other---males vs females....see the outcome below :)

The guys getting ready
They guys had to dig up some husbands and sons just to complete their husband betrayed me and joined :)  
Here they are starting...half of the guys lost their footing and weren't even pedaling!!
 And then the females were up!!!
 We had a plan and we were sticking to it.
 And it paid off.....The females won!!!  Well we actually came in 2nd to another team and the guys were 3rd.  It was funny we heard all kinds of hamstring, the gears weren't right, I slipped off the pedal.....and on and on :) 
 It was a victory all the way around our Cancer fund received the funds from both teams placing!!

I was greeted by one of my #1 fans....I love how no matter how good or bad you do they think you are a winner!!
 Since we were already out there we enjoyed some of the other fun things to do......

 One of the activities included Steve, Hunter and Reanna's first ride in the sky. They had helicopter rides and so we decided to do it.  I rode with Hunter and Steve rode with Reanna.  

 He wanted me to hold his hand but other than that he did great.  He looked out the windows at the tractors and planes that were on the ground.  I was amazed.  

 It was a neat trip for me as the last helicopter ride I took was in the Lifewatch helicopter.  This was MUCH more enjoyable!!!  And the pilot was AWESOME.
 Next up Daddy and Reanna.  Steve has never flown before at all, not even in a plane.  So he was just as anxious as the kids!

 They Loved it!!!
 After the helicopter ride, she rode the horse......

What a neat day.....thanks Nana for taking pics!!!
