This past weekend was a great but busy weekend. We spent time together, played, did chores and started working on the home school room. Let me just take a quick moment to say my husband amazes me and I am now more than ever so excited to share that space with you when it is done.
The highlight of our weekend had to be the Mid Summers Night Fun Run. It was fun run #I lost count and a good time for all. Today I wanted to share a few details while bombarding you with pictures of cute kiddos running. What can I say, for this running mama it just doesn’t get much cuter. I hope you enjoy them too.
Our local Kia dealership sponsored our girls to run in this race.
They wore some super cute Kia shirts for advertising, my girls got to race for free. It was a win, win for all.
Getting ready for race time.

Here they are “the crazy quartet” as we like to call them.
It doesn’t get much cuter than this group.
Marissa was off to race by herself but Emily decided she wanted to race with daddy so mommy could take pictures.
Your mom might be a blogger if…
Lined up ready to race.
Anna and I busy doing our proud mama thing.
And before we knew it they were off!
Marissa was all business.
Emily was quite possibly the happiest little runner ever.
This was a pretty simple race out and back on a local gravel trail.
About 9-10 minutes later here came Marissa.
For the first time ever Marissa managed to come in first among the 4 friends. To say she was excited may be a slight major understatement. I think she said “I beat Jonathan” to anyone who would listen to her. In fact I had to have a talk about being a humble “winner” with her in the car.
I must add that I did smile to myself. It brought back so many memories of being a little girl who used to always beat the boys. There is just something so exciting about that when your 7. Don’t get used to it baby girl. Here in about 6 more years things just change.
Emily on the other hand….still smiling and having a grand old time she came in towards the back of the pack.
She was cheerfully greeted by her sister who was probably saying “I beat Jonathan!”
A great race always requires a post race snack.
What better than ice cream in mid July!
Yup, definitely the highlight of the weekend.
Now they are already asking the question that every runner asks when finishing a race.
“When can we do it again?”
