TinkerBell Half Marathon and a horse show....what?

So after laughing non stop I finally got some sleep and woke up early the next day for the TinkerBell Half Marathon.

I love this race. I ran it the first year and was sad that I missed the next 2 years.

We got up way early to drive to the race. I was not feeling great from the food the night before. I was hoping that my tummy would cooperate.

 Waiting in the Corrals....nervous to get started.
 Of course Fireworks to get it started.

 Strolling into Cars Land

 At this point I hurt my heel somehow so of course I stopped for a picture with my girl's favorite Fairy. She was so excited to see this.....
 Goofy pic of the girl taking a pic lol
 Ready to storm the castle one last time.
 Running through. Aren't the new celebration decorations pretty?

 Last time through the tunnel for awhile. Till next time.
 Pixie Dust Challenge done. You can sign up for the challenge. Then you have to run the 10k and the half. 19.3 glorious miles!!!! Then you get the 3rd medal.  I made it. I was done. I spent a lot of time walking due to my foot and a lot of time in the bathroom due to my belly. I didn't care since I was at disney and wanted to enjoy it all.

After the race we went to a horse show that my mom's ranch was participating in. My mom's husband is amazing and always includes the kids in things. Even taking them on rides in the carriage.

Of course since we have not had an updated family photo in awhile we had to take one.

I love my time with my family. We have the best times and make the best memories. I would not trade them for the world.  I had an amazing Mother's Day with my mom, my sister and my kids. I am blessed.

Tinker Bell 10k

Friday was a play day as we got ready for the TinkerBell 10K the next day. We spent the morning at my sister's store/my mom's office. My sister has amazing clothes that I get to try on and some pretty amazing glasses too. Go shop here...

 I ended up taking this beauty home with me. It is great from all seasons.
Of course I had to have a Bean and Cheese from Baker's. It just would not be a trip home without it. If you are from out of town and ever visit the Inland Empire in California make sure to stop. You will not be sorry. Pretty sure they put crack in those things. Just Sayin'.

So the next day was all about the 10k and the kids races. We had signed the 3 oldest kids up to run. I say you learn something new at each race. The girls being the same age were in the same group. Shawn was a group below them. Had I known that they could all run together I would have let them. No one was checking the ages. The bibs are all the same. I would love to let my kids run all together. Lesson learned. 

I loved the 10k. I had so much fun. It was busy and you have to bob and weave but I loved it. It is mostly in the park so you have an amazing time. 
 Ready to fly....
 I did not submit a time so I was in Corral D. I also did not read the signs properly and lined up in Corral E.

 As always there is Rudy getting us started.
 Hello again to my happy place. Let's do this.
My favorite castle in the whole kingdom.

 This is Shawn's favorite ride. Since we were not doing the parks  I took a picture for him.
  Just hangin out with Mickey and Walt.

 Right at the end I saw Shelby's favorite fairy.
 Part 1 of the Pixie Dust Challenge DONE!! Let's Eat!!

Oh wait the kids need to race......
 We were a little late so we ran to the Corrals.

 Bubba ran first. He was so tired and not as happy as he was at the Star Wars races.
 See....ages 1-3. That does not mean your 6 year old can run in it.
 Waiting for sister and cousin and about to fall asleep on my head.
 There go the girls.....flying fast.

 My favorite picture all day.
 About 5 minutes after the race..

Mom texted me on the way home and asked if dinner was on the schedule. Of course you do not have to ask these sisters if they want food. Of course it was Mexican. Our favorite.

 What is good food without good drinks. I had a half to run in the morning soooo small drink for me please.

 Our awesome mom. She thinks we are goofy but she loves us.

Tomorrow I will finish the Pixie Dust Challenge.
