Night of the Running Dead!!

Last weekend we got to go up North to do a 5k race called "Night of the Running Dead." The race benefited the Huntsman Cancer Foundation, so what better cause to get in shape for. We met up with Tonya and her girls and had a fun filled day. First we stopped at Hee Haws for a corn maze. the corn wasn't very tall this year, but the kids still had lots of fun.

There were animals to pet and feed.
 Tractors to ride.
Large slides to go down. 

More tractor rides. 

And this is what Kynlee did the whole time.

 Our next stop was Gardner Village where we saw many witches.

 Kynlee has a new babysitter.
 The kids had fun dancing to the Halloween songs

 And then it was time for the big race. When you register, you can either be a human or a zombie (Carson was a zombie), then when the race starts the humans go and the zombies start 2 minutes later so they are chasing the humans. Oh and just so you know Megan and I did not plan to dress like twins, it's just one of those happy side effects that happens quite often.
 I only had about 10 minutes to do Carson's makup, but I think he made a great Zombie

Carson caught Megan and I just a little bit into the second mile, then we all finished in the middle of the first pack. My time wasn't as good as I was hoping, but it was still respectable. The race was way fun though, people would yell out their apt. windows,"What are you running from?" Then runners would yell back, "ZOMBIES!" Some people had really good costumes too. 
We spent the next day with Nathan and Tonya. It was a way fun weekend.
