Over the weekend, our neighborhood celebrated it’s 25th anniversary and did so by throwing a huge event complete with a 3K fun walk/run, a parade, a festival, food and live music!  The three of us woke up on Saturday morning ready to run, although some of us (hint: the lone male) had very lofty aspirations for the morning.  I pushed EC in the stroller while Nathan sprinted out ahead of the pack of runners.  The stroller brigade brought up the rear, but Nathan came through with first place in the race!!  Congrats to him for winning bragging rights over the rest of the neighborhood!!

That afternoon, we went to the festival, but EC was too young to do most of the things.  They had a 30 foot climbing wall, the bungee jump thing for kids, moonbounces and slides, face painting, tattoos, and even a Home Depot tent where kids could build their own birdhouse.  It was pretty neat … they had bands performing all day, a vintage car show, food vendors like Chick-fil-A and Shane’s Rib Shack, a farmers market, an autograph tent where neighborhood celebs signed for the kids, and plenty of vendor booths.  Pretty cool for a neighborhood thing!!

We forgot to take our camera so no pics, but here is EC after she came home and was so crazy sweaty, we stripped her down to cool off!!

Emmy Cate learns about a new word every day now!  It’s pretty amazing to hear all of the stuff she comes up with.  Over the weekend we noticed her saying “bye bye”, “bow”, “eat”, and the best of all ….. “Daddy”!!!!

She is such a cutie even when she is hot and sweaty. Love the red hair and curls, (still think she looks just like you Lauren). Congratulations to Daddy on the run.
