Happy 4th of July!


Picture by Brady Ross, Age 3

Happy 4th of July!! Hope everyone is having a safe and fun holiday so far!  This morning we ran the annual Ralston 5k/1 Mile Fun Run.  We did this last year too and it was SO much nicer out this year!  I challenged Brian to run the 5k while the kiddos and I ran the 1 miler.  

Here's the finish line!

Layla was ready to run!

Brian was ready to run!

Brady was ready to run!

And so was I!

Our race started first and ohh man was it hilly!  And oh man was that stroller heavy going up those large hills pushing 50+ pounds of kids!

Brady ran about half of the way and finished strong!

Then we got to watch Daddy run. Here he is about to run lap 2

Run Daddy, run!!

Layla decided to be brave and walk a lot

"Go Daddy!!"

Coming in for the finish!

And he did it! Finished 82nd with a time of 22:35. I was proud of him! Those hills were brutal!  And he finished 4th in the patriot division which was for armed forces members! :)


Love them! 

Silly kids dancing to the music


Shot that Brady took of Brian and I!

We came back home for Layla to take her nap and this afternoon we're going to hit up the Ralston parade, come home for hopefully a Brady/Layla nap and then off to a bbq with friends!  So thankful to have my family together today but missing our family back in Minnesota and elsewhere! Happy 4th! Stay safe everyone! :)
