This last weekend Uncle Paul & his family, Mom, Dad , Demi, Dev, the kids, and I went up to Aunt Cindy's cabin in Island Park for the annual Mesa Falls Marathon Weekend. My Mom & Dad Jeff run in it every year but since Mom hurt her foot she hasn't been running in it so she & whoever can come up drive the route and cheer on Dad at several different stops along the way as he runs the entire 26.2 excruciating miles...ok, at least that is what they would seem like to me since I am not exactly known to voluntarily run more than 240 ft at a time (distance around the bases of a softball diamond). Anyway, we have started to make a weekend of it and stay in Island Park so this year was no different. We brought up Dev's family's raft and floated box canyon, went on bike rides, played games, fished, played horseshoes, and laid around like bumps on a log. That's what you're supposed to do at a cabin, right?? Here are some pics of Dad doin' his thing. Just a warning, some pics may be a bit graphic, Dad gets a little "racey" when he runs...hahaha, that one was for you, Dad!! ;) A guy that works with Uncle Paul and Dad was also running so I put up some pics of him crossing the finish line as well.
