lake padden resolution run and polar bear dip!

We decided to join in on the fun and kick off the new year a little differently!

First was the 2010 Resolution Run...a beautiful 3 mile run/walk around Lake Padden. I carried Max in a backpack and he slept most of the way.















Then everyone gathered for the Polar Bear Dip! Here goes the first brave group into the VERY cold water!


















And here I run back to my warm clothes...love that goofy grin! (And you gotta love the guy in the tutu...lots of great costumes to enjoy!)













Sweet Max rode on my back and slept most of the way. Fortunately our friend took care of him while the rest of us jumped in the freezing water. Could Mighty Max be any cuter (or warmer)?

Love it! I'm a little jealous. :) Max looked like it was just an ordinary day for him. His silly mommy doing something else to show that bravery runs in the family.
Take care!
