Ella's Big Race!

A friend of mine told me about a local one mile race that I thought would be perfect for our little Ella. Ever since I saw her run her first Tigerthon at school, I knew she was a born runner! She just doesn't get tired(wish I had that problem! :) SO, we signed her up and her Daddy went along with her. I was so sad I couldn't go but we had a sick baby boy at home. Thankfully Joey took pictures for us so we could all see what fun they had together. Before the race there were some fun family activities that Ella enjoyed-her favorite was the little petting zoo. Then the kids all did fun silly warm-up exercises. And then they were off! Joey ran with her and about half way through, he told her just to go for it(he was trying to help her pace in the beginning). And he said, bam, she flew off and left him in the dust :) Thats my girl!! lol. She was the third female to cross the finish line and the first female child. So, first in "girls" in my book! And Joey thinks there were at least 30 girls running. Awesome! We are so proud of you Ella! I know you have lots of races in your future!


Here she is after the race, pink cheeked and adorable. She was also very excited she got a shirt and a water bottle for "free" as she put it:)

Way to go Ella!! You must be very fast but we are going to have to race to see who is the fastest. I beat a turtle yesterday so I think I will win.

Very cool. I so wish I was a natural born runner.

Hope y'all had a great Christmas.
