Pink Brady???

Friday night Brady's cross country team held a twilight team race. It was from about 7PM until a little after 9PM. The divided up the team into groups. Teams competed in a 1 mile race event with prizes for winning teams, best costumes, best cheers, and top 7 largest improvements from the first time trial to this one.
Brady was part of the Pink Panther team!! Yeah Pink Panthers!

This meant that they had to dress in pink. We were assigned to have the pink Halloween hair spray. Brady told me Friday that I needed to get him some pink hair spray and off I went to the store. I went to 3 different stores trying to locate Pink spray. Yeah, I found it at Fred Meyers and returned home.

However, I failed to understand that we were supplying the WHOLE team with the spray. Oh great.... off again to the store during rush hour traffic (not loving it and the mis-communication). This time I made Brady come with me. We purchased the last 2 cans on the shelf of Pink spray - giving us a total of 3 cans.... I hoped this would be enough.

I dropped Brady off at school with his pink hair spray in tow. After a dark 9 pm, I wondered how late it would be. Finally Brady called and off I went to pick him up. This is what he looked like: Grrrrrrrrr ...... Brawny steal and fast as lighting.... and PINK (he he)... Such a manly color! Someone was assigned pink shirts. I love the Pink Panther paws. Not to mention the pink hair. Yes.... there was enough for the team members to all have pink hair. AND Beautiful PINK legs....

Brady earned 10th place for best improvement in time for a 1 mile race. Woo Hoo. He received this cute adidas baby sandle... Yeah for Brady! It's great that he is continually improving!

What a fun prize! He looks good in pink, but I hope he doesn't decide he likes it enough to keep it. :)

Awww hes even cute all pinked up. Don't you LOVE when they tell you the day of the event that they need this and that and expect us to run right out and get it for them. We are mom we sit on our tush all day waiting at their beck-n-call to serve them. We have nothing better to do right? ;0)

I'm always amazed at all of the FUN the Cross Country team does! FUN, FUN, night...and Brady looks awesome in pink!

I can't believe how much kids LOVE to spray their hair different colors and it couldn't be a better time of the year to do it than near Halloween!

Great Job Brady for running a 6 minute mile...that's awesome!

Hope you are having a great week!

(I have no comments on Twilight or Vampire diaries, as I haven't read OR watched either one). It's fun to see you all "bantering" back and forth).

Cherie said...

Brady looks SO CUTE with that pink hair - ha ha I love it. I love that he put it on his legs:D
Taylor was on the black team and they didn't go all out like that but it sure was a fun night for the cross country. I am always amazed at the stuff Rusty comes up with.
I love, love, love this team!!!
