A Family Affair!

My brother came out to visit,
So why not have a race?
(NOT MY IDEA- but I did participate)

We raced a 200! x's 6
In the above picture...my sister and brother are in front...and I am trailing!

Okay...there is a picture that makes me look like I am in front...but I am really just racing my little guy!
After 6 races, and me losing every one....I was glad when it was all over!

My 2nd daughter, came up to me, and said, "Mom, now you know how I feel?"
"I'm always behind Brooke, and you always tell me, to just keep trying. The harder I work, the faster I'll get. Today I am going to tell you the same thing...the harder you work, MOM, the faster you will get!"

If you need an easy solution to putting kids to bed...
Have them race each other for an hour...
they will fall asleep, before their heads hit the pillow...literally!

I am enjoying running pain free...NO INJURIES!


  1. Don't you just hate little brothers showing off? :) Did Jeff even break a sweat? Kimberly looks like she was giving him a run for his money, or was he just teasing her? I love it.

  2. Love sibling rivalry! Same thing at my house!

  3. so cute what your daughter said.

    and SO agree w/racing then sleeping. I try and do that w/my lil' ones in our front yard!

  4. Looks like a fun day! Great way of getting your kids sleepy hehe :-)

  5. Yeah! You all look like you are having so much fun. My son always wants to race me...I let him win...sometimes.

  6. That is just too cute! What a great family you have!

  7. That looks like it was a lot of fun :). Congrats on being pain free!

  8. Enjoy again Sherri :) And have a nice summer!

  9. What a fun day with the family:) Love the pictures...the kids look like they are enjoying them selves!

  10. That is adorable about what your daughter said. Ok you're an inspiration to me. I keep telling myself I'm going to go to the gym and run (walk) on the treadmill... but it never happens. Tonight will be first night and I'm going to do it all week! And I'll just do it a week at a time.
