Carter: I'm going to run by myself. Which people are you going to run with Elise?
Elise: I'm running with Oma.
Carter: Okay, make sure you tell her then!
Elise: And Opa!
Carter: Opa can't run with you.
Elise: Why not?
Carter: Because he would get too tired. You wouldn't want 2 people to get tired for their races, would you?
It was so cute. True to her word, Elise wanted her Oma to run with her. Carter wanted to run alone but was excited to go over to the start and didn't want to go alone so he asked me to go with him. Once we were over there Elise followed us and pretty soon both the kids were dancing around on the starting line which was adorable! Carter decided I could leave once Elise and Oma were with him so I headed over to find a good spot to watch. Elise kept running over to kiss me before the race started which was the sweetest. The photographer asked me why I wasn't running with her and I said, "Because she wanted her Oma." She said it was sweet she still wanted to give me kisses.

|I couldn't even guess how many times she ran over to kiss me before the race started.|
|Then Carter had to give me kisses too.|
|I love Elise's smile in these pictures!|
