A beautiful day for a watch!

Yesterday Randy was in a team for the Ski to Sea Race - I believe this is about his 12th year. His Ski Patrol "C Team" from Mt. Baker enters this race with 4 other teams representing the mountain. These guys always place in the top 100 out of over 400 teams..........but then wouldn't you hope that they would since they are the ones up there saving your life on the mountain?!?! :-). We set out about 11am with Tanya and Jason and headed to watch out biker come in. Dan, Marla and Kameryn Raske joined us at Squalicum Harbor, and Dave and Kim Tjoelker met us at the finish!

Randy helping our biker in at the Everson Park - did I mention it was gorgeous outside!! (the best part - my friend Tanya across the street made me an iced latte' - thanks Tanya!!)

Randy waiting for the handoff from the mountain biker..............

Our friend Jason helping Randy get in his Kayak at Squalicum Harbor..........

Go Randy go, race Randy race, (at this point we run to the car and race across town to Marine Park to be there when he gets in..............................

Randy get out of his Kayak at Marine Park - it's great they have so many there to help!

After he kayaks 5 MILES!!!! - he has to run up the hill and across the finish line!!

An exhausted and relieved Randy crossing the finish line!!

Ready to go home and have steak and shrimp! We had the team party here afterwards and I was so busy playing hostess, I didn't take one picture :-( - I even forgot the team picture!

Today - is a sit and relax day with a barbeque with friends at 4pm.

Tomorrow I will blog ALL the work my hubby got done around here this week - CRAZY - the man's an animal!! It's looking gorgeous!! Here's a sneak peak........................
