4th of July

We happen to live in the perfect location for the 4th of July. We had a fun day and everything that we did was within walking distance of our place!

We got up early to run the Woodbridge 10k. We did this last year too and plan to make it a yearly tradition. It was a beautiful morning and it turned out to be a nice run. I pushed Isaac for the first 3 miles, and then Charlie was nice enough to stop and wait for us to catch up and then took Isaac the rest of the way.

I knew Isaac wouldn't make it the whole way without a little distraction, so I gave him a Gerber "biter biscuit" to keep him entertained. I had no idea what a mess it would make!

In the afternoon we went swimming at one of our community pools. Then around dinner time we headed over to the 4th of July celebration at our church. There was lots of food and a few lives bands playing. We had a fun time chatting with friends and enjoying the summer evening.

Woodbridge does a firework show over the lake that is just a few blocks from our house. Isaac was way too tired to stay up for that, but Charlie & I just walked out our front door and could see the fireworks from our walkway.
Does anyone want to come join us next year?

Isaac is getting so big!! Sorry we didn't get to see you before we left. Hopefully we can meet up next time I'm in Cali.

So funny. I opened up your blog with Lucy here and this is the first time that she has ever mistaken Charlie as "daddy". She keeps pointing to the picture of you and Charlie after the race saying "daddy". I guess she thinks they look similar when they are both sweaty. ;)
Cute pictures of Isaac too may I add.

I am so excited to hear that you guys are going to pass through Price at the end of August. We missed you guys a lot during Wood family time here in Utah. It really wasn't the same without you 3. Anyway, we'll see you soon. I can't believe Isaac is almost 1!
