Apple Blossom Weekend {in photos}

I’m going to keep it simple today…hey, it’s Monday, right!?!?! It was Apple Blossom Weekend here which means fireworks, concerts, parades and Princesses….yes Princesses. It’s an 83-year-old tradition for each community to put forward a Princess and they go through this week-long interview process. I’ll spare you all the details but a “Queen” is selected and they then have multiple events for the rest of the weekend/upcoming week to attend etc.

We hit up swimming Saturday morning for Lilly’s lesson and then had a picnic lunch at the park and watched some skateboarders do their thing…..

So focused on skateboarders

Bye bye Thomas! I thought she was going to run after it!

Sunday, we had a birthday party to go to, so we got our party dresses on….

Cuties (yes, my kitchen is a mess!)

I did no running, no PT exercises Friday or Saturday 😦 but for some reason I’m completely exhausted!!!! My LEFT hamstring was giving me trouble Friday and that is my good hamstring!!! I figured a few days off wouldn’t hurt. Sunday night I desperately wanted to run but I must have eaten something that didn’t agree with me because I was super sick for a number of hours. No run but I managed to get my PT exercises in.

Anyone in for the Plank Challenge for June?

Don’t forget, I still have a Cordskinz Giveaway going on!

How was your weekend?

Anyone attend Apple Blossom or another festival/event this weekend?

Anyone run ?……please share your running with me…I’m feeling down on running this weekend.

  1. That festival looks so cool! We have a blueberry festival in our area, but nothing with Apple Blossoms 🙂 Don’t feel down on running. It’s better to rest and heal. I know it sucks when you feel tweaks or get sick, but sometimes its your body’s way of saying, “hey, I need a little rest over here!” When I have an off week, I look at Monday as a day to start over and try again. I also think of “off” weeks as my body’s way of taking a “recovery” week, and I often come back stronger! You are doing great!!!
