4th of July Races

So I am going to take this time brag about my kids and how well they did in the races last Saturday. For those of you who don't know what I am referring to, every July 4th it is a Hurricane tradition to have races at the park. They start with the crawlers and work there way up by age, separating the boys and the girls. Kyler ran with the 5 year old boys and if not for a rough start surely would have contended. Elizabeth ran with the 7 years old girls and she won!! Her face as she waited for the word "Go" was that of great determination and complete focus. She wanted to win so badly and she did it.

Now Eli, this is where I am proud and yet at the same time a little bit ashamed. You see our cute little Eli is 16 months old and still relies on crawling as his main mode of transportation. He can take a few steps but he's not quite there yet. So his main competition was basically kids half his age or younger. Now with that said, I am proud to announce that Eli smoked the other crawlers and came in 1st place!!

Yeah for races!!
