Pie Eating Contest

I was at the grocery store alone when I heard them announce a pie eating contest in 20 minutes. I thought, "Hey, my kids might have fun with that!"

I rushed home to collect them. They were confused as I was shouting, "Hurry, get your shoes on and get in the car, you're going to a pie eating contest." They cheered as I raced back to the store.

The kids made it in time. They put on bibs and sat at the table in the bakery department. Pies were placed in front of them as they contemplated their strategy. Mari even wanted in on the action.

Just as they were about to begin, Hyrum, already bibbed, seated and ready to go, announced that he doesn't really like pie. The judge chuckled and said, "You're in the wrong contest my boy".

The contest began and it was chocolate cream everywhere!

Emma was in the lead....Eve was in the lead....some other kid was in the lead....Mari took one bite and wanted down.

Eve got serious.

Emma was close behind

The judge called out, "We have a winner!!!!!!" They rushed over to her and put her prize hat on her, took her picture, and gave her a first-aid kit (go figure!)

Eve was so proud. We were proud of her too.

Her joy lasted all day and into the night (especially since it took 3 days to get all the chocolate cream out of her nose.)

We love you Eve!
