That Boy Can EAT!!

Cade has always been a big eater. He is the child that will try anything. He's my only one. Braden eats so slowly, taking baby nibbles, it will drive you insane. I have to set the timer to get him to finish. That might have a little to do with why he's so skinny and Cade is so thick - ya think?

Sunday, after church, there was a family fun day. There were some little carnival games set up and spacewalks. There were also hundreds of hot dogs. They announced that there was going to be a contest to see which man could eat a hot dog the fastest. All of a sudden, I see Cade run up to the guy and ask (very insistently) if he could do it. They wouldn't let him do it because they wanted it to be men. As soon as the men were done, Cade ran back up to the guy and said, "OK, it's our turn now". The guy ended up letting the little boys participate in their own race.

I only had my phone camera, but I got some pics (whoever thought of putting a camera in your cell phone was a genius):

We were all cheering, and at one point, I was yelling, "Don't you throw up...Don't do it!!". He had stuffed his mouth so full, he could hardly chew. He got it down though and came in 2nd by a hair to an 11 year old. He was pretty proud of himself. That's my Cade!
I haven't forgotten about his post. I've done Bryce and Braden. I've been working on it, so it should be done pretty soon.

That is so funny!! My Owen is totally a big time eater as well. That kid can really put down the food but he is soooo lean. It looks like cade is the same way-- eats a ton but burns ever calorie he takes in-- wish I could be more like that-- eat a ton and burn it all off- Oh wishful thinking :)
