4th of July...

Let the celebrations continue!

I decided I needed to push myself and do a 4th of July 5k run...although, I couldn't run the entire thing I did the best I could. I was the last one to start the race but once I got going (Buggy in tow) I caught up to the middle of the pack! Woot. I ran...I walked...I stopped and really took it in. I took in the fact that I was doing a race. This time last year I was preggo...after I had the lady I never thought I'd run a race...but now, I'm running. I'm powerful when I run.

I stopped along the way and snapped a few I passed each mile marker, I smiled. 
How could I not smile...I was doing a 5k with my baby on the 4th of July! Yearly tradition? I think so!

She got a little snooze in while momma did the hard work. I feel like I'm a better Momma when I run...I'm not worried about the dirty dishes, the laundry that needs to put away...or even the $100 late rent notice I got on my door. (YIKES) Her and I get out in the fresh air and it's just us. 


After the race the Bugs and I enjoyed blue berry muffins and music in the park...We played, we laughed, we made memories.

We packed up and headed home...Off to spend more family time...

Who doesn't LOVE red LIPS?? My new obsession!

Hope you all had a good 4th of July! We did! 
Family, fun and traditions!

Sounds like the making of a new tradition! So fun! I always think about doing a 5k, but thought you couldnt take a walk break, now that I wouldnt be the first, i just may revisit the idea.
