Toy Run, Dec 8

Sunday morning dawned snowy and cold, but atleast we were in the single digits and not below zero! Time for our annual trek to the Children's Hospital Toy Run. It's a motorcycle gathering we never miss, no matter the weather! We've been before in a blinding blizzard, but this would be the coldest run in our memory.


Dan, Liz, Karli, Ditch and Amy met us for breakfast. Thanks guys!


Karla and I continued on the Toy Run, with toys in hand from Dan and Liz (thanks!). Everyone else headed home.


Mmmmm burritos. We were stuffed from breakfast, but nice to see local businesses helping out.


Some folks got creative




And awesome


Which one of these is not like the others?


*love* Even better? Sweet couple in their 60s inside!


This fire truck is there every year! Don't think the guy that had to drive it in could've been very comfy though....



What's with Santa letting his elves freeze??? The other one was manning the camera, both were visibly shaking! Poor kids.


Had some time to kill, so of course we played in the snow.



The Toyota was charging a Prius. That was a rather odd situation. Owner couldn't figure out how to keep the gas motor on to charge the batteries. He said he's had nothing but trouble with the darn thing in any temperature below freezing, couldn't wait to get rid of it.


Here we go!


The organizers split up the motorcycles (well, cars/trucks/suvs today) into manageable groups. They decided to put us first for the second group! That was pretty neat. Maybe they liked the santa hat!





Great morning. We will be back next year, no matter the weather, as always.
