4th of July

We celebrated our first 4th of July with Preston in our own town. It was a blast! We had so much fun.


We used to make an annual trip to Denver over the 4th, but this year we were able to take part in all of the festivities that were going on here.

We kicked off our day by running 5K ((5k on the 4th)). We woke up early and registered that morning. Preston was able to ‘run’ with us!


Chad got third place in his age group. He was also first stroller to cross the line!!


Meaning, Preston got first place in his age group! woohoo!!


This was my first 5K ever. I also hadn’t gone on a run in a LONG time–since before I got pregnant!

I had a simple goal:

Finish in under 30 minutes AND beat the Grandma old lady running next to me. HA HA.


I finished in 29 minutes and 29 seconds.  AND I beat Granny!


It was such a fun morning!!

After Chad and Preston got their ‘medals’, we went home to feed Preston and then headed downtown to partake in all of the festivities!


We were able to eat lunch at the food vendors. AND Preston sat on his first cow 😉


We listened to the bands playing…


We stopped and got some coffee at a local coffee shop and watched the parade!

After that we stopped at a wine bar for a little treat.

Preston was so good the whole day! It was definitely a memorable 4th of July!


If you can’t tell, we LOVE our new little bigger town!

Until next time… xoxo
