color run

This past weekend my little family participated in the color run in Des Moines. My brother had a work team signed up and we decided to join them and take the kids!  

I think it was a super cool experience to teach our toddler about family fitness, and it was just an enjoyable morning to spend together as a family!  The weather was gorgeous and the crowd loved Hendrix's enthusiasm for the colors and running ;)

Our smiley little Blaire-girl slept in the burley for most of the 5k,

But this cool-dude-wannabe insisted that he run the race; so he alternated between jogging with daddy, riding on daddy and mommy's shoulders, rolling in the piles of color at each station, and giving thumbs ups to reinforce how much fun he was having....

At the end we were exhausted and colorful but it was a blast!

During the race at some point Hendrix said "this is such hard work, but it is so fun!" and I was encouraged that we are planting seeds that will encourage him to make good choices about health and fitness as he grows.  

Oh and here the little sneaky mister was dumping a whole packet (maybe even two!) of orange powder paint on uncle jake.  He is so tricky, huh?!?

I don't think we were in the van more than three minutes before he was completely konked out!

What a fun day!
