His First Train Ride

Ok, well maybe it wasn't an Amtrak, but it was a little train at a local town fair and he loved it. Since he can say the word "choo choo" and associate it with a train, this experience made his day. He held on for dear life but you could tell he had a great time.

He also got to see some farm animals up close in the FFA building. Unfortunately this is a picture after we left the barn, when he wanted to go and visit the older kids washing the cattle.

Being the typical mom, I wanted to get a picture at every opportunity. So when I saw this, I just had to do it. Luckily there weren't many of these spots to stop at.

He also got goodies like a balloon, a taste of fried cookie dough and cheese fries. And in the end he ended up being one tired little man.

Romp in the Park 5K

I did it!! I completed another 5K this year and I'm proud of myself. My time isn't as good as I wanted it to be, but I'm working on it and hopefully it will get better. Today was beautiful with temps in the low 70's and it was sunny. It was a perfect morning for a run. My hubby and little guy came out to cheer me on, which was wonderful and such a relief to see when I got to the finish line. I have one more later on this year and we'll see if I can sneak another one in during October.
