Our family had a great 4th of July long weekend.
First item on our weekend was a splash and dash race for my 10 year old.
The race consisted of a 100m swim and a 1 K run – short but lots of fun to watch. Plus the weather was ideal with clouds and misty rain.
Next up on July 4th morning was a 5K race for my 13 year old. Alex wanted to run the race for fun, partly to keep in shape for soccer and just because he likes to race. For fun, I sat on the side lines and cheered 🙂 I can’t believe he’s smiling at the end of this race considering the second half of the race was uphill.
His cheering section – we tried probably 15 times to take a family picture but someone always had their eyes closed or was looking the other way.
In the afternoon we headed to the pool for a few hours of pool time which was lots of fun.
At night, my husband took the boys to a soccer game where their team won and the night ended with fireworks. My six year old and I opted to stay home and watch a movie. After a long day she feel asleep at 8 o’clock and then I had the whole house to myself for 3 hours! I had big plans to get some things accomplished but I ended up sitting in bed watching tv and eating ice cream – it was wonderful.
Hope you had a terrific 4th! (Or wonderful July 1st if you are Canadian).
