Weekends Are For Fun!

This weekend was another one for the books! It was packed full of fun things and we are so thankful for all that there is to do in this area.

Saturday we started the day with the Run for the Fallen on post. It's a great event that honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice as well as their families. The Patriot Guard riders kicked off the morning in a great way and it set the tone for the whole event. It was a fun run so no competition and it was nice to just run in their honor. Of course the SLAMfam came out in full force which is always awesome.

I ran with Kyle, E, and my friend Lauren. It was a beautiful but humid morning. 
After the run we headed home and put E down for a nap. We showered and got ready for the day. We headed out to Liberty and did some shopping and had lunch. It was a nice relaxing day that ended with pizza and a win for Kyle's beloved WSU Cougs! Of course he was thrilled.

On Sunday, we were up at 5am to head out for the 2nd 10k in our Heartland 30k series. We really thought this event was going to get canceled because of the rain and lightening. I'll run in rain all day long but lightening is a different story. Thankfully, the weather cooperated and we were off! I gained another PR on this distance and as Kyle put it "you had a giant ridiculous grin on your face when you finished." Haha! It was a 20 second PR, and it felt great! However, let me just say that I'm always impressed with my rockstar of a husband that pushes E every single race! He always says that I'm pushing her all week and this is the least he can do. I love that man!
Immediately after the race we loaded up because we had a fun event planned for E.

A few weeks ago I purchased tickets to take her to see Disney on Ice. Yes I understand that she doesn't quite understand what was going on but let me tell you watching her faces and seeing her amazement was more than worth it!

Our little Snow White was ready!
It was magical!!! Let me say that watching anything Disney is amazing but seeing it through the eyes of your child is a whole new experience.
It was worth every penny!
Afterwards we had an early dinner with friends at a yummy restaurant called BRGR in the Power and Light District. Worth every calorie haha! 

It was a great way to end an awesome weekend.

Hope you had a great one!
