Jonathan finished in 41:02 which is a 6:37 pace (amazing!) and I finished in 1:03. I was hoping for under an hour, but 1:03 is still about a 10:00 pace so it was ok. Would you believe that it was such a huge race that Jonathan's finish time didn't get him any medals? He's not used to walking away from races without a medal. Ha! He was 118 out of 2,842 and 15th in his age group. I was 1,799 and 126th out of 225 in my age group.
I didn't have enough time to get to the meeting spot before the race to meet up with my running group, but my one of the girls in my group happened to walk past us as we were doing team pictures so we had to get a picture together. She was very patriotic:)
Face plant! Whoops. Good thing he got back up and wanted to get right back on the slide:)
Getting ready for the fireworks show!
J and his tacky hat:)
The kids would jump with each of the firework "bangs" but they seemed to like the show. Cayden was talking with me and saying oooh and aaah. At one point I realized that he wasn't talking anymore and sure enough he was sound asleep with his hand on his face. Ha! (My kids were asking for their pjs and beds before it was even dark out.) I guess the busy day caught up to him!
It was so nice to have an extended weekend to celebrate the 4th and the freedom that we enjoy living in America.
