Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th everyone! I love the 4th of July. It just says "Welcome to Summer." This year we had a lot of fun. In the morning, Jason and I got up and ran the 5K in our area. And yeah, I won my age group! :) Seriously?? It was such a surprise and so fun. The downside of that is that someone stole my medal so they are mailing me one. Who steals a medal that doesn't belong to them?? Anyway, you can be sure of a picture when it comes, and I might wear it around town. Who knows? But, that was fun. Jason also did awesome! He hasn't been a very fast runner in the past, but for this race he cruised and finished in 25 min 30 sec. I was so proud to see him cross! It was a great start to the weekend.
After the race, we walked over (our car was blocked by parade festivities) to Village Inn and had breakfast with my family. Jack loved the parade. Next year, we will have to watch the whole thing. We finished the day off with swimming at a neighbors (thanks Steph and Dan) and then fireworks at the park. The fireworks were great and a bunch of people from our neighborhood came and we all sat together. We have a great neighborhood.
On Sat, we went boating with Jason's parents and my bro and sis. It was very nice to get back on the water, since we bascially haven't been since I was pregnant. Jack loved the boat itself, but didn't care so much for the tube. He spent most of the day on the beach with Grandma. We got plenty of sun and can't wait to go again. Shout out to Brad and Cindy... Thanks!
Anyway, we had a great weekend and are looking forward to Jack's 2nd bday tomorrow. Where does the time go??

It was a lot of fun to have you over on the 4th! Jack can come play in the pool with Mason anytime. He's such a cutie!
