Back in February I found out that The Flying Pig Marathon (which is a HUGE deal here in Cincinnati) was holding a Flying Piglet Fun Run for tiny tots like mine who love to run! I signed that girl up the minute I found out and marked our calendar! My only reservation was the 1:15 start time, which is dangerously close to the sacred double-child afternoon nap, also known as The Only Way Mama Can Hang On To Her Sanity. I figured we'd just make it a late nap and cross our fingers that it worked. It worked just fine (although, as I type this at 9:20 pm Sylvia's upstairs doing gymnastics in her bed, so I can't proclaim the late nap a success quite yet).
The Reynolds' family joined us for an afternoon of bridge walking, riverside picnicking, and of course - kid racing! It was really, super fun. The Dads had it worse than The Moms, though, because they had to stand in the corral of whiny children, shoulder to shoulder with other strung out parents wondering why they chose to force their child to skip a nap. When our girls finally got to the starting line, they were all smiles! And Sylvia was very impressed with her medal and her goodie bag of treats she received after finishing!
