Beach Bums

We were in Hilton Head this weekend and it was great...perfect weather, kids who slept (a little better than usual anyway), and lots of beach time!

He's tough to see, but Ben snuck around behind the birds to get a better look.

Race Day

We were in Stone Mountain this morning for a "Miles for Hope" 5K to promote brain tumor awareness, research, etc., etc. Our six-member Team Graichen Nation was the second-place team fundraiser (and the first-place team had 20+ people on it), and I was the top individual fundraiser (!!!! and thanks to those who helped...you know who you are). The total raised at the first-ever Atlanta event was just over $8,000 and our team contributed $1100 of that!

Weekend Warriors

We spent the afternoon in Mountain City, GA watching Greg compete in the Warrior Dash...it was awesome, words can't even express the high quality people-watching. Greg scaled a wall, ran through mud, under barbed wire and through fire. Ben's favorite part of the day was the shuttle bus ride to and from the parking lot. Greg got a viking hat for his bravery, but due to issues complicated by the Hoffman (plus Todd) Big Head, it only fit Ali, Ben and Katie.

After the Warrior Dash, we stopped by "Goats on the Roof" which appears to be exactly what it sounds like. We plan to go back sometime when it's open...it seems too good to be true.

Our Little Big Katie

Katie is just about six months and so, so big, but even she manages to look tiny in the giant high chair...
