Turkey Trot

This year we started our First Annual 5k Arnold Turkey Trot. I wanted to run in the Phoenix Turkey Trot but it was $60 per bib!! I rather run with hubs fo free. Can’t wait for next year when we run it with Cruz!

We have decided to start a new tradition, every thanksgiving you have to wear sweat pants and a flannel. This was Joey’s idea, he said it was the perfect mix of comfy and fancy.
