Bryce Canyon Half Marathon

Well I can actually say I did it. I ran 13 miles today and I feel great! (tired but great) Let's not anybody (Amanda) get any big ideas, I am not running a marathon I think a half was good enough for me. I am one of those people that would always say, why in the heck would anyone ever run that far? Well there you go I am one of those people. Lets just say the morning was beautiful and the canyon at 6:00AM was gorgeous. It was so fun to run with friends and to have this experience. We will have to see what is next? I am so happy that my dad was able to come. At first I was really sad that he was the only that was going to be there to cheer me on but it ended up being a good thing. He was a GREAT cheerleader and he even jumped in and ran a few feet with me towards the finish line. Thanks dad I love you it was so fun to spend the day with you! After getting some much needed rest I can acutally say that I would do this again. Thanks to all you amazing friends that inspire me to do this, I have loved every minute of it.

4th July!

What a fun time we had celebrating the 4th of July and Dad and Mom's 25th wedding anniversary. It was so much fun to get all the family together. Garett and Andrea we missed you and the kids. The grandkids all had such a good time playing together at the park and riding on Bucks float for the Cedar City 4th of July parade. I hope you guys don't mind the pictures that I posted I think they are all so cute. I think we all ate enough food for a month, we had yummy Cookies, all the watermelon anybody could ever want, LOTS of pink bubble gum (thanks Erin that was a fun treat) and for Darren we will continue to have carmel poppcorn at all family events. I think the kids liked making snowies the best so thanks Grammie! Thanks to everyone for helping put this together for Dad and Mom. I know my family had a great time!

So this is to anyone out there who has a 2,3,4 maybe even 5 year old that might like to lunch a bunch on something that comes out of our noses! Jaci had her little friend Lauren over today and we are sitting at the kitchen table eating lunch. We were talking about playing babies, princess and cooking in the kitchen. Jaci decides to pick her nose and eat it. So me being totally grossed out says Jaci don't pick your nose and then eat your buggers that is discusting. She says to me mom they are not buggers they are crackers! (with little attitude and rolling eyes and everything) There you have it my little 4 year old, she is a precious gem. Love you Jaci.

So I really can't believe I am publishing these picutres on my blog. So Shandie is the one that started this whole triathlon thing. It was not a full tri but it was perfect. We (well I know I had) so much fun. I can't wait to sign up for another one it is kind of addicting. I am so proud of you Shandie and Brooke you guys did so GREAT! If anyone want to join in you are more than welcome, the more the marrier. This was in St George last weekend. We swam 200M biked 5 ml and ran a mile. I came in 4th in my age group. Thanks everybody for all your support it was fun to have so many friends and family there to watch.
