So I did it again.. there is just something empowering about being able to complete a 5K. On June 27th I joined in on the fight against Scleroderma (which is a skin disease) and helped raise money for the foundation by running in this 5K with my two friends Andrea & Mackel. My time was not as good as the first 5K I did, but it didn’t help me that I didn’t run the whole week before the race due to being up in Idaho. But I felt good that I completed it.
We turned around and went up to Idaho again for the second time in 2 weeks for the
4th of July. Since living in Utah I have been very disappointed in the firework displays here in Utah & wanted to show Justin how much fun the firework display in Idaho Falls was. Might I say he was very impressed & agreed they were the best firework display he had ever seen. He said from the very beginning it was like the Finale’ of most other firework shows.
We woke up Saturday morning & journeyed to the parade where we sat for 2 hours watching all the floats go by- the kids enjoyed popsicles & the candy that was thrown at them. After the parade we went to IGGY’s sports grill as a family & ate. Kaden had fish tacos that he swears were just delicious along with a raspberry lemonade & some nachos.
We headed up to the Heise area where my brother Geoff showed us his sweet rock climbing skills. Justin joined in on the fun but I sat in the lawn chair and watched.. I didn’t feel up to climbing in the the 80 degree weather & in my flip flops.. maybe another time.
Here is Justin looking like my own spider man!!
Kaden & Grandpa went golfing out to Jefferson hills while we were up at Heise rock climbing. Afterwards we headed down to Idaho Falls to stake out our spot by the river 5 hours before the firework display. We walked along the river & ate at the booths that were set up. Now at this point my little Kaden had eaten a hot dog for dinner, an italian soda, mountain dew, donuts, funnel cake, candy & licorice.
Good healthy Fourth of July diet!!
So after eating cereal, fish tacos, nachos, strawberry lemonade, hot dogs, funnel cake, popsicles, candy, mountain dew, donuts etc. Kaden decided his stomach was hurting and he began to throw up while waiting for the fireworks to start. I felt so bad for him.. But after it was all out of his system he felt fine again & was ready to eat.. I banned him from eating.
Here is Kaden with my mom taking a little nap before the fireworks!
Sunday we barbequed on my parents deck with my mom & dad, Geoff & Cheryl then headed back home.
We had a great Fourth and enjoyed my parents hospitality!
