Every June, the Hanalei Canoe Club sponsors an 8 Mile Run/Walk culminating with an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast. Of course that’s way too far for my two boys—Stone (5) and Tiger (2)—so we attended the annual “Trike-a-Thon” instead, a fundraiser for Aloha School.
We staged it on the basketball court and the kids rocked with rounds and rounds of bike riding. It was so competitive I felt like I was at an Olympic event: we were laughing, shouting, crying, even! (And I must say, I was a very proud Mom with Stone being the only one riding a tripod scooter.)
We celebrated afterward with lemonade and muffins—and then a few of the local Firemen came by and sprayed the munchkins down to cool ‘em off… it was too cute!
