A peach at The Peachtree!

This little guy had his first taste of a peach!  While Justin and I and the rest of the Fredrick clan were running the 10k, Max and Claire were strolling around with James, Katie, Sarah and Brittain.  They even got to meet the peach guy!
Max loved his first peach!! He kept leaning in for more.  I'm heading to the store today to stock up on some.  Claire was asleep so she missed out on the action.  I'm going to attempt to make baby food again this week.

I had a few goals going into the race:  1. run the whole way  2.  get an extra t-shirt  3.  run the whole way!
And I'm happy to say I did :)  It may not have been the fastest (1:07), but I did NOT walk!  It felt great and I was proud of myself.  I think this was my fourth time running and this was probably the first time I did not walk at all!!  It helped to run with Becky, who did a great job pacing me :)  My legs are a little sore today, but I look forward to adding some miles to our family run!
Max and Claire did awesome on our trip.  The way down was a headache bc Max cried/whined for at least 100 miles straight.  They did great on Sunday.  We went to a bike shop and to a spaghetti cookout (it has been a tradition for many years the night before the race) so they missed two naps.  They were champs!  Our trip back was great! (besides going through lots of storms)  They both slept 90% of the way and NO tears!!

Now it's time to unpack ugh and start thinking about Justin's birthday present and anniversary gifts!  I have two days to come up with something?!!


  1. Congrats on the 10K! It becomes addicting I think. I've only managed to recently get back on the tredmill. Before the twins (which I just realized are nearly the same age as yours!) I was running 1/2 marathons. That was then! I just discovered a boxing fitness class that I L.O.V.E.

  2. I love classes...you're guaranteed a workout and you can't (well you can but you would look stupid!) leave in the middle!
