This year, my mom and sisters drove down to Wichita to celebrate Mother's Day. It was sooooo nice to have them here. We decided that we would all particpate in the First Annual Girls on the Run, Mother's Day 5K. There was an awesome turnout..almost 1000 participants! Kathleen and I ran the 5k, while Mom and Kristen pushed the kids in a couple strollers. I think Kathleen and I got the better end of the deal!!! Mom pushed Ela in one stroller...and Kristen pushed Jak and Eva in another stroller. Kristen was definitely a trooper...she pushed an extra 75lbs for 3.1 miles!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We all were so proud of ourselves for actually finishing the race. I finished in 207th place with a time of 30.36 min and Kathleen finished in 307th place with a time of 33.19 min. Mom and Kristen finished in just under an hour at 56 min. Not too shabby!!

WE DID IT!!
After the race, Jak asked if he could take some pictures with my camera..so I gave it to him, and off he went. I ended up with lots of random pictures...trash cans, strollers, grass, sky, buildings, and cars. The funniest pictures were of shoes. He probably took about 15 pictures of just shoes. Here are a few samples....
I think we might have a future professional photographer!!! :)
As you can see, we all had a lot of fun...and I hope we have a chance to do it again next year :)
