Thursday- 1 mile
Friday- 4 miles + abs/arm workout
Saturday- 3 miles
This week has been super chill on the running scale. I wanted to just run whatever I felt and whatever I had time for. It felt good to take the pressure off and just run.
4th of July
We had such a wonderful 4th this year. I seriously love this holiday so much. My grandpa is a Marine, my brother is in the National Guard, my other brother worked in construction for the Army, and my FIL is also in the National Guard. I love having a holiday that celebrates our freedoms and those that served/serve our country.
The day started off early, and we all woke up late so I only had time for a 1 mile run. We met at my in laws for a fun parade where we got cotton candy, snow cones, and of course all the free candy that was thrown at us from the floats. J loved all the yummy treats and watching the fun ‘floats’.
My MIL had a delicious breakfast for us that we really enjoyed. We hung out after playing outside, eating popsicles, and seeing the kittens their barn cat just had.
That night I had my in laws over for a BBQ. It was my first time making kabobs, they turned out good(what a relief). Forgot to take a pic of dinner, but dessert was my favorite, fruit pizzas!
On to the fireworks! There was a free firework show right by our house. We met up with family, did sparklers and stayed up way past J’s bedtime. He was a trooper and loved all the fireworks.
It was such a great day. We can’t wait for next year!
Were you afraid of fireworks as a child?
How is your long weekend?
