i got an email about a neighborhood turkey trot just before thanksgiving, and i thought the 1 mile might be a fun thing to do as a family :) here are the boys on their first practice run and first run ever really!
mads rode his bike for the first run and did great, and beckam ran the whole thing!!! i'm not sure what dust and i were expecting, but we were pretty impressed!
dad took them on run #1, and i went on my first post-pregnancy run with them a few days later! i was nervous that i couldn't finish the 1 mile, but we all did it!
mads ran with us this time and did awesome too :) turkey trot here we come!!!
the run was at 7am, and it seemed like a fun family event but turned into a father/son thing when jeter and quincey were still sleeping and when we realized that it's a tad bit chilly at 7am here sometimes!
both boys did super awesome of course :) beckam stopped a little short of the finish for a quick bathroom break, but both boys sprinted to the finish and were so proud to complete their first "race"
phew! it's hard work running a mile :) thank goodness they had water and muffins at the finish!
such a fun little way to celebrate thanksgiving :) see you next year turkey trot!
we did a little thanksgiving dinner later that day too - with just us! it was kinda fun to do my first turkey and have just us for a yummy dinner :)
haha we may have had to make a FaceTime call or two to make sure we were doing it right, but our house smelled so good as this thing was roasting up, and it turned out fantastic!!!!
beckam was so excited to help dad carve it up, and he was just as excited to eat it! yay for 1 kid who eats meat :)
we were excited for an excuse to make a yummy meal - yay for american thanksgiving!
