But before we knew it it was time for his race. Braden and I swam 1 lap of the pool together and Daddy was outside waiting for us!
Aaaaand this is what I mean by Braden being very emotional! I have to laugh at this picture, Braden was so upset he couldn't ride his bike yet, but the rules were to walk your bike out to the mounting area, and THEN you could ride it. Try explaining that to a 2 year old!
And...crossing the finish line!
I'm so proud of him. He even fell off his bike, cried for a bit, I asked him if he wanted to stop and he said "no, I ride my bike!" so he finished. Next year I'll be doing it. I'll be almost 8 months post-partum and it will be a great motivator to get back into shape! Braden will be at a much better age to do it too! (P.S. Wow, I sure got puffy in the face a lot earlier in this pregnancy!!!)
