Yay!! I’m so glad to be working out again. Recently, baby girl shifted and dropped a bit and my sciatic nerve feels SO much better. It’s crazy that I could be in so much pain just because she was sitting on my nerve. It feels so good to be active again and just have a little ‘me’ time again=)

This week/weekend has been so much fun. My brother and his family left yesterday morning, and we were so sad to see them go. We had so much fun playing all week and loved getting to celebrate the 4th together.

We started the 4th off with a parade with Josh’s parents. We’ve gone every year, and love seeing all the fun ‘floats'(mostly tractors, trucks, and cars ha). We always get a little treat even though it’s 10 in the morning=) This year it was cloudy and it felt so nice.

After, we stopped at a little carnival going on. This was the first year we did this and J loved the bounce house.

We ate lunch at Salt City Burger with Josh’s parents then headed home to relax and make some flag jello. I have finally perfected my jello layers. I used this recipe and found it to be the easiest so far.

We headed up to Leah’s for a BBQ with my family and the food did not disappoint. We were all stuffed! I hung out outside watching the kids light off fireworks for most the night. J had never done anything like that before and was pretty psyched. They would all follow the older cousin(Max) around, pretty hilarious.

The weather started to get pretty nasty, wind and a little rain, so we headed home to watch the fireworks from J’s bedroom. He thought that was awesome so it worked out.

Hope everyone had a safe 4th, happy Monday!

About Sugar Plum Runner

Welcome to the Sugar Plum Runner! I grew up in WA state, but currently reside in UT with my husband Josh, son Jackson, and 2 daughters Lily and Claire. I love running, but I have never been so inspired to run, race, and blog about it since 4 years ago after I had Jackson. I grew up playing soccer and cheered in high school. My favorite part of both sports(and yes I consider cheer leading a sport) was the conditioning. I found myself running after practice was over on my own. That's when I realized that running may be the sport I really loved.
