Color Me Rad - An Epic End to Summer :)

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Monday, August 20, 2012


My toes are slightly multicolored and half of Audrey’s face is still Smurfy blue, but it’s all a fun reminder of our spectacular end to summer, yesterday. Let me just say, everybody needs friends who will dress up in tutus and do crazy things with them. The fact that this group of friends happened to be mothers and daughters made it even better. It's definitely the most fun I've ever had doing a 5K.


After the Blue Station

For Curious Minds: A portion of the proceeds went toward the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team in Training of Central Ohio. The powder they're throwing on us is just colored cornstarch. It's non-toxic, but the flavor lingers in your mouth for a while. The liquid is just colored water, really COLD colored water. Did the color come out? From us, mostly. From our clothes, don't know, haven't washed them yet. We're soaking them in vinegar to try to preserve the colors, but we've been told not to hold out hope for that. Oh well, that's why we took pictures.

Tuff girls wear tutus

At any rate, it was a spectacular way to end our summer adventure. We'll definitely do this again!


All cleaned up!

    So awesome! What an amazing relationship and bond you have built with your daughter! And to make health and fitness a part of it is icing on the cake! I have 3 girls (12,7,6) and really hope AND pray we have relationships like you guys do. I know how important it is to raising kids who will be open with us and trust us and come to us when they have struggles. Thanks for sharing this great relationship with all of us on SP. it always makes me want to be a better mom myself. So thankyou!!

I did the Color Me Rad 5K in Oklahoma City in July!! It was AWESOME!! Funny thing is, I STILL can't get the Colors out of my UNDERWEAR!! The White Jeans came clean, but I have not tried washing my Shirt yet. I want the color to REALLY set so I sprayed it with Vinegar and it is hanging in the Garage. I will wash it eventually, but for now it is a great reminder of a FUN Day every time I see it hanging there!!

emoticon So glad that you enjoyed it too!!
