Zoo Fun

I took the kids to the zoo yesterday, and it was so much fun!! The weather couldn't have been better and neither could the company! Thanks Janae, Noah, Kyra, Brian, Brooke, Ryah, Heather, Kali, and Alivia!

Some shots of the animals....

And, some shots of us....

Janae can't be apart from Brandon for long, or things like this happen....
All of the kids at the new Komodo Dragon exhibit.Kali really likes Pace. :)
All of us (except Brian, Brooke, and Ryah) in all of our cuteness. :)
Noah showing the camel who's the boss! Pace got too scared at the last minute and wouldn't ride.
Awww, what a cute family!
Brian is so good with my boys!
"Whoa, that's a big elephant skull!"

These two boys were just crazy! I don't know who they belong to! :)

I think this was their "Mad Face"....And this was their "Crazy Face"....

Founder's Day

This weekend was such a fun one! Janae, myself, and our kiddos went to Joseph City to spend time with my mom. It just happened to be Founder's Day as well, which made for even more fun!

We had to stop and give the kids a break on the way to Joseph City. Hard to believe there was this much snow in the middle of March!
Our first attempt at canning chicken. It went very well, and my pantry now has a good supply of chicken!Janae and I ran the Founder's Day 5K! It was freezing (21 degrees)! So much fun though!We took the kids across the street to the Tractor Show. The kids had a blast!We had yummie BBQ at the firehouse.Such a good time in JC!

12 Women, 2 Vans, 204 Miles

About a month ago a friend of mine (Kimberly Harper) called me and asked if I would take her place in running the Ragnar Relay. I'm so grateful for that phone call! I had an amazing experience! Go Team B.L.I.N.G (Better Late Instead'a Never Girls)!
My first run, 7.1 miles at a 7:30 minute/mile pace.Hanging out in Skull Valley waiting for our van's turn to run.
Some of my teammates (wish all their faces were showing). We had the coolest shirts and the coolest team!A few girls from a Joseph City team. It was super fun to see some old friends out there on the course!
Something really tragic happened during the race.... A 17 year old boy was hit by a car in the middle of the night (he ended up passing a couple days later). Due to this, the route of our race was changed and some of us didn't get to run our second leg (mine included).

This is me on my last leg, bringing it in to the finish line! ( I pushed it way too hard, I thought I was going to pass out, but I averaged a 7:15 minute/mile pace.)My family was there waiting for me!Brooke & I. It was so fun to run into her out there as well! Maybe next time we can run together!
