As Mia’s first ballet performance draws near, it’s all about the show in our house. It brings back lots of fond memories of the millions of shows I put together as a child. I decided to take a few photos of Saturday’s show to share. I don’t know if this is the route her ballet teacher is going, but it’s creative expression all the same and I love to see her express herself.
So maybe you’ve heard of the Muddy Buddy competition…. Teams of two conquer (or attempt to conquer) a 6-7 mile off-road course including biking and running and obstacles.
At the end of the race, racers crawl through the infamous Mud Pit before crossing the finish. Oh, themed costumes are a must… Prizes involved for the best costumed duo.
While neither Marcus or I competed in the adult portion. (Yeah, yeah… next year, I swear) We were super excited to learn about the Mini Muddy Buddy that accompanies the “old people” race. Entry fees for kids were only $15. Besides and awesome experience, the cost included t-shirts and a froggy medal.
The kids were divided into age groups and then conquered the obstacle course as well as the Mud Pitt. Music, winners circle, snacks and drinks followed. Teaching your kids to embrace a healthy lifestyle at an early age is so important. This competition really hit that message home.
