It all started with Spencer's 2nd Fun Run. Our friend's 6 year old invented this race because he wanted to sponsor a race just for kids. The kids love it and us parents adore it. It is so great to see the kids doing their best, having fun with whatever place, and encouraging each other.
Here are all the kids who participated. Jesse was a wanna be. The next Spencer Fun Run is going to be in December, a jingle bell run, to include a diaper dash so Jesse will get his turn.
There goes Anna!
Here is Asher crossing the finish line.
The next event of the day was our dear friends Mia and Carter's 6th birthday party which included miniature golf, pinatas, pizza, cake, and fun at the beach. Jesse has an obsession with balls so he kept stealing all the kids golfballs and running off. When I finally got him to try playing with the club that boy had quite a swing!
Jess after cake. I was running backwards trying not to get touched!
Anna pretending to be a mermaid at our favorite beach in Hawaii.
As you can tell by the look on her face all the kids had so much fun.
Asher with his buddies on a "jellyfish" hunt. Unfortunately, this beach tends to have bad jellyfish days. Today was great for 2 hours until the birthday boy got stung on both legs. All of a sudden, jellyfish were washing ashore everywhere. It was so odd. It kept all the kids out of the water but as you can see, it didn't stop them from enjoying their day.
Asher boogie boarding (pre-jellyfish). He is so good at it now! He was out there all by himself catching waves. The smile never left his face.
Jesse, the sand man. This boy is the ultimate beach bum. He has never know any other life. He is too into playing in the sand to even smile at me for this picture.
The truck was his favorite toy of the day.
Pajamas, movie, and popcorn at the end of a long but fun fun day!
Daddy, all these pictures were mainly for you. We missed you so much today. We knew how hard you would have been cheering at the fun run, remembered how much you love put-putting (Asher kept talking about the last time you took him), and you would have the loved the great boogie boarding waves at Bellows! Everyone missed you...it wasn't the same without you. We can't wait for all the fun moments we will get to have with you when you come home.
