I wasn't there for his race, I was running around delivering May Day baskets and picking up his dad's surprise cake.
Later on he enjoyed his other form of transportation. And to think at this event last year the trees were already leafed out, we had to make sure we put on sunscreen, and shorts were everywhere. This year they had a roaring fire going for people to warm up by, and hats and mittens were absolutely essential.
The kids races are such fun, the whole family sometimes comes along to offer support! This little boy was racing for the first time, his brothers (who also raced) and baby sister (4 months old) were there along with his mom and dad.
Young riders eager to race:
Deb and Bob Maki had put together a huge birthday card for Mike, and had everyone they could find sign it.
An event like this takes lots of volunteers, and everyone did an amazing job on a really cold day. Some of the helpers, smiles on their faces!
Mike spent quite a while reading all of his birthday greetings, he loved hearing from everyone!
A very happy birthday, indeed.
