Family 5k

We had the chance to participate in our old stakes Family Fitness Day back in April.  Kyle and I both ran a 5k.  It was my first post baby and I feel like I did really well without having trained at all for it (really I ran sporadically in the weeks up to this so you couldn't even begin to call it training).

The kids were super thrilled to be up early on a Saturday morning (6am) to go to Bountiful Baskets and then on to the race.  Can't you tell...

We borrowed a stroller from our friends so we could have all three kids ride with us while we ran.  
 I finished first so I got to come back and watch Kyle and the two older kids race to the finish. 
 It was a little chilly for Houston so Liz stayed in her seat bundled up where she could stay warm.
 After the run, the kids wanted to stand in line to get their faces painted.  We couldn't really say no to them since they were so patient with us while we were running.  Plus the face painter was Gabbie's Sunbeam teacher from our old ward.  

Here's our beautiful girl waiting so patiently for her turn.
 Her choice...A rainbow butterfly.
 The big reveal.  She was super excited.
 Noah wasn't feeling very well so he didn't get too excited until the very final reveal...

 A blue tiger
 The two cutest kids.  This was the most intense face painting I had ever seen.  They turned out fabulously.  Too bad Gabs started crying when we got in the car and hers was destroyed within a matter of minutes.  Seriously!  She destroys things like none other.  Hopefully she will grow out of it soon because it makes me crazy!
Thank you to all those who put in so much work to make this a great time for all.  We can't wait for next year.
