When you live in an RV & you're not travelling, the walls can start to close in on you! In an effort to help keep morale up and also just get out & get some fresh air every day, Steve devised a walking contest for the month of October. The RV park we're staying at has a half-mile loop around the perimeter, so Steve decided that everyone should walk a minimum of 100 laps, or 50 miles, for the month. And by everyone, he meant everybody but Jake & Katie. If we all meet the minimum requirement of 100 laps, he promised we could go out for doughnuts at the end of the month. The winner, the one who walked the most laps, could get as many doughnuts as they wanted. Of course, we all knew that when you don't eat doughnuts very often, you can't eat very much at once! (And that's a good thing!)

Alyssa discovered that her natural strength may lie more in the area of gymnastics & other strength, flexibility & agility type sports as opposed to distance running...but, she is such a persistent, determined girl, & I love that about her. She pushed herself & jogged some, even though it wasn't easy for her!
As we headed out for our final celebratory lap before heading out for doughnuts, Katie insisted that she walk with us, instead of riding in the stroller. I couldn't believe she walked the entire lap, a whole half mile! She was ecstatic to be doing what everyone else was doing! She is one super cute little girl, growing up so fast! :)
