----------------CABIN / LOTOJA-----------------



Colby's fam has a cabin up in Afton, Wyoming that for about four years now we have been heading up to for the 206 mile Logan to Jackson bike race (Lotoja). The cabin is ideal for this particular trip as the race route runs right along the road into Afton, where the cabin is! Why this trip every year you ask, because my awesome and crazy brother in law, Stephen usually does this insane race! However this year my awesome and crazy sister, Erica who usually carts around her two cute kids while supporting her hubby in this insanely long race, decided to do the race as well. Unfortunately Stephen broke his rib prior to the race while getting involved in some crazy shinanagins in Lake Powell. So he became support crew for his darling wife! Erica did amazing and was incredibly strong through out the race and still had quite the sense of humor at each feed station! It was fun to watch and as always ended with the tradition of eating at the Mangy Mouse in Jackson Hole! Then back to the cabin, about an hour away, for a little R&R! Too much fun! Thanks van Dijks, for giving us a reason to head up there every year! Here are some of the pics from the race and at the Cabin!

Sarah, Colby, sweet baby, Bella and Lola - thanks for all the support during this long, long, long bike ride! You guys are the BEST! There's nothing like riding 206 miles and sitting down the next day in your cabin with a bowl of lucky charms and watching Colby and Stephen paddle around in the boats by the cabin and try to hit plastic army guys with the BB gun.;) You know we love you like a fat kid loves cake.
