So this year Bethany decided instead of riding she would decorate and man our team tent. She came up with the idea of decorating it with origami cranes. Apparently if you make 1000 origami cranes you can have a wish or you get good luck. 1000 cranes is A LOT of cranes! LOL We were camping the week before the MS150 so I missed the text about making cranes. I got the word the day before the ride. We purchased 1000 origami papers and some twine to hang the cranes and we learned how to make origami cranes! We spent hours making cranes. I was impressed that the kids really got into it. We even had friends and extended family make cranes and send them with us. It was a lot of fun. In the end I think we made around 100 or so cranes. Maybe 150. I calculated if it took five minutes to make a crane it would take a little over 83 hours for one person to make 1000 cranes! Yep. That's a lot of cranes.
Here we are making cranes at dinner the night before.
