Shorthill Family Reunion 2009

Ah, it's that time of year again... a time rife with competition to ring in the best of the Luksa, Eakes, and Domann family rivalries. This year's games did not disappoint (though I'm happy to report that nobody swallowed a living goldfish or ate a fistful of worms vis-a-vis Family Fear Factor 2008). And so, you're wondering, who won? WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS, MY FRIENDS. Ra, Ra, Sis Boom Ba; GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO TEAM LUKSA! The body painting competition.

Definitely a tie... Luksa 1, Eakes 1

Lawanna painting Lorelei's arm--Lorelei loved it!
Here, Tenley and Dallas in the beer chugging competition. I'll spare you photographs of the hot-dog swallowing championship (but thanks, Uncle Todd, for the inspired idea).

Toddy in the donut eating competition. Uh oh... I think an Eakes spies him licking his lips!
Hula hoops--I took the prize! Can't you tell I'm in the zone? Full-on chicken arms!
Waiting for the train at Gage Park (the same one Mommy used to ride on as a kid).

You wouldn't know from the picture, but the kids loved the train ride. Gryffy talked the whole time, pointing at everything. Lorelei got a little frightened in the screaming tunnel, though.

Lorelei loved the teeter-totter.

Gryffy chilled in his walkabout.
