She always has liked to color.

A few weekends ago, Emma and I participated in her first 5K. The Color Run came to town and I couldn't keep this 6 year old from going for the gusto.  
We started in the heart of downtown Indy with thousands of other clean runners all dressed in the brightest of white.

She was SO excited to start that she couldn't stand still! 
...and then after much waiting, we were off!

At the first "color stop" we were splattered with orange.  Having a ball we were laughing and cheering.  We soon learned that keeping your mouth closed was a much better idea!!

Good friends Melanie and Molly congratulating Emma on her job well done.   We sure aren't sporting that bright white anymore!

One last color cool.

She woke up at 5:30 am, did a lot of waiting, ran-jogged-walked-and rode piggy back for over 3 miles, had the time of her life getting splattered with color, finished her first 5K....
....and in the end made one sweet memory for her momma.


  1. LOVE this . . . I will be participating in a couple of weeks!

  2. You are?! In Columbus???? Tonights dinner conversation:
    Adam - "Emma, anything you want to do special before school starts next week?"
    Emma - "Ya, go back to Ohio and Zoombezee Bay."

    heck ya.
