This past week was a little crazy for me. We had a lot of different things going on. We had a big Slade family reunion, a baptism for my niece Eva, the adoption and Temple sealing of six of my nieces and nephews, Carissas run and ALL that comes with the 4th of July Celebration!! Just to give you an idea of my husbands 4th (Saturday)
He ran 2 miles in Carissas run - I am so proud of him!!
Our ward was in charge of the pancake breakfast
He drove a truck in the parade for the football team
He sold hamburgers & hot dogs for the Senior class
He took tickets at the youth dance after the fireworks
I was tired for him, he came home to watch the fireworks and you should have seen him, his eyes where so blood shot from all the smoke from the barbecue grill (I asked him what he had been smokin:) All in all it was a super fun day. I really enjoy the 4th, it is one of my favorite holidays. I greatly appreciate those men and women who fight so hard to keep our Country FREE!! I have so many memories of the 4th and I love the traditions that this little community has and I hope we don't take them for granted because they are important to me!!!!!!!!
I couldn't let this weekend pass without thanking my friend Lori Nelson (aka Jillian). She is a BIG TIME RUNNER and she was kind enough to run by my side in my very first 10K. She basically ran in place for 1 hr and 22 minutes but she was right there by my side, encouraging me the whole way. It meant a lot and I know that it was a sacrifice for her because her little legs are trained to run and run fast and hard!!!!!!
Isn't she BEAUTIFUL - THANK YOU LORI!!!
Good friends are like Bras, supportive, never leave you hanging, make you look good and are always close to your heart!!!
