5 Years Ago Today, I Became A Mother....

To this handsome young man!!

5 years ago today I also became the mother of two!!

These two keep me on my toes and challenge me daily but I wouldn't change it for the world. Sometimes they give me a break and get along really well and even happily pose for pictures!! I live for those days!!

Yesterday when I picked Grant up from pre-school his class was in the gym. I walked in and he ran up to me and said: "Mommy, watch how fast I can run!! He proceeded to run as fast as he possibly could around the gym and finished right next to me and said: "High five mom, high five!" Turns out Grant loves to run for fun as well! He even gave it his all last weekend on the track after my 5K!

Look at that form! He was so very proud of himself and smiled the entire time! When he got back to me he said: "Mom, that was so much fun especially because I won!" My friend Nikki took the picture of us below and I love it because it pretty much sums up how much the kids and I love to run for fun!! Seriously, look how happy we are!!

So in honor of Grant's birthday, head on out and "run for fun" today! My fun run will have to wait until tomorrow since today is a scheduled rest day and is filled with birthday celebrations!!

Happy birthday Grant! I love you to the moon and back!

Keep running, you're simply the best, and Grant YOU inspire ME to run for FUN!!
