And their off!

Yes, they had my permission to get this muddy.

In fact, it was my idea.

I signed them up for this race.

Which turned out to be a mud race.

For those who know Little A you know that she does not like to be dirty. So when I told her the race was through mud she wasn't too sure about the idea.

I kept telling her over and over how much fun it would be so she agreed to do it. Baby Rootbeer was nice enough to help her out and get her to the starting line.

You can tell by the look in her face that she's thinking that this isn't going to be fun.

And there off!!

At the start she seems to be thinking that maybe this is going to be fun...that she might even enjoy this romp in the mud.

And then, it looks like she's starting to change her mind.

And then, dash it all, face first in the mud.

She is probably thinking 'And my mom said this would be fun?! She's in so much trouble!'

People in the crowd started encouraging her to keep running so she decided to give it another try.

And here is my brave little runner! In the end she decided it was fun, but was ready to get out of those muddy clothes (especially her shoes) as soon as she was done.

And then it was time for her sister's to run.

I thought it was cute how they held hands and that E had a big grin on her face the whole time.

They loved it! Baby RB wishes that she fell in the mud like little A. ha ha! Silly girl.

I am grateful that they had a firetruck there to rinse off the muddy kids.

Little A probably loved that last part since it wasn't mud. Looks like a really fun race, to watch! Love it. She was a really good sport about it, even if she did fall down! I'm very proud of her for finishing.

Poor Little A. That does look fun, though.
