A nice lady took our picture while we waited for a team to come by.
This is probably the most famous musher, Lance Mackey. He won the iditarod the last three years in a row. You could tell it was him because everyone went crazy, holding up signs and cheering his name. You can see people holding out their hands to give him five as he speeds by.
Here is rookie musher, Dan Kaduce. It was the best picture of the day. Our nice camera was out of batteries so I was using the (comparitively) super slow point and shoot....most times it didn't take the photo until after the team already passed. This shot was a my crowning glory.
Chloe wasn't super interested in the whole thing this year, so we had to find other ways to entertain her. It was bright so we gave her my sunglasses. Yay! Chloe likes them!
About 30 minutes in, our little angel fell asleep in the baby hawk. We wanted to be sure she would stay warm enough so poor Andrew put on by pink scarf to wrap around her. It did the trick, and we got a little "alone time" while she snoozed. Dad and sleeping baby standing above the race trail. (He looks pretty good in pink right?)
Look who woke up!!
I got a little baby time in too, don't think I let Andrew have all of the fun!
One last group photo, and we were off to lunch then home for a daunting home improvement project. Photos to come (I am waiting for the after picture....).
I am already looking forward to this next year when Chloe is totally mobile. Lots of kids were there sledding, and playing in the snow. It was pretty adorable!
