Each year since moving into our neighborhood we’ve looked forward to the annual Ridge Run.
For the past 6 years, the Ridge Run shirts have had an illustrated road runner. (as can be seen in these pictures) I was asked to give the shirt a little spruce this year. I clarified if “sprucing” meant I had to keep the road runner and fortunately I was given creative leniency. After surveying a number of neighbors, the consensus was to keep it simple. And simple it is.
Everyone was more than ready to retire the roadrunner and I was happy to have a shirt I would wear again.
We walked as friends and neighbors through the neighborhood; in strollers and wagons and some on bikes.
In year’s past we’ve had a breakfast but this year it was a little later in the day and we had a BBQ lunch in the park. Having it later meant it was significantly warmer and the kids poured water on their heads to cool off.
It was a week before Easter so they threw a bunch of eggs in the grass and let the kids “hunt”. Thank you to the genius behind putting candy in only a 1/4 of the eggs and trinkets or pennies in the rest. Our dentist thanks you.
I look at this picture and I just smile. I think we have a picture of these two every year at the Ridge Run. They’re not so little anymore!
