Second Spartan Kid Run

Today Daddy, Mama and I went to Black Mountain (near Asheville) to go run another Spartan race. Daddy completed the Spartan Super - 8.5 miles and 28 obstacles! Go Daddy!! I did the kid run again. This time Mama ran with me and Daddy was the photographer. He had to save all of his energy for his race because he started after I was done. I did a great job but did not like the part with the mud again. It's really sticky on the bottom when I jump in. Here are the pictures from my race.
Sleeping on the way there....I had to rest up!
This is the course map. The orange part is the kid run and the blue
is the part that Daddy completed. Wow!

My "Spartan Face"

Mama did a comparison picture.

Excited to run!
Stretching with Daddy
Mama and me.
We had to climb a wall to start the race.
Oooh! Using my muscles.
Climbing more walls.
The mud pits.... least favorite part.
Throwing the "spear". I missed and had to do 5 burpees.
Those walls are tough!
I made it!
Crawling through an obstacle.
The final stretch!
I see the finish line!
All done!

Check out those mountains in the background.
Daddy had to go up one of them!

Silly Hayden wanted in on some Spartan fun too.
It was a long but fun day. I am now a proud owner of two Spartan medals!

Open House and the Latest Pictures

Yesterday we went to my school to meet my teachers that I will have this year. This year I will be in Ms. Peg and Ms. Kerry's class. I even saw some familiar names on the bulletin board in the classroom so I'll have some friends that I already know in my class. I'm also excited to meet my new friends and am especially excited about my new teachers!

Mama and Daddy are back at work so we have been busy getting back into a routine. Here are the latest pictures that we haven't had a chance to post on the blog yet......
This is my "magic towel" that Great Aunt Petra gave
me in Germany.
I put it into water.....
....and it turned into a horse towel.

Germany Day 12 - Homeward Bound

August 14th - Another long day. We had to wake up super early at 4:30 a.m. to go to the airport. Hayden and I were both good on our flights and we were so happy to be home to see everyone again. We had such a great trip and miss everyone so very much! Here are the last few pictures from our vacation.
A picture of Hayden before Mama had to wake him up.
Checking out the planes at the Brussels airport.
We were able to track our flight on the plane and we flew
right over Frederick, MD!
Do you recognize anything, Mallory? Hee Hee!
Hayden looking out the window.
Phew! That international flight was exhausting!
Hayden slept the entire time on the second flight.
I did too!
Reunited and it feels so good!
