Wasatch Back Ragnar!

Two vans of 12 ladies ran 200 miles in 36 hours it was such a blast!  My 3 legs totaled 20 miles and whew, was it hard!  My first leg was just over 3 miles in the heat of the day, my second leg was 12 miles starting at 1 in the morning and my last was 4.5 straight UPHILL!  It was in the heat of the day and so steep it was like scaling a mountain!  I LOVED it!!!  One of the hardest things I have ever done and one of the most enjoyable things too!  We laughed till we cried so many times!  Girl time is the best!
Our van all ready for the race!

Ready for our first run!!!

Do you see that amazing moon?  I enjoyed looking at it for over 2 hours while running in the middle of the night!!!

If you run while it's dark outside you can have a 'pacer' come join you!  James was so wonderful and met me for my run!  12 miles in the middle of the night with my best friend!

After Ragnar hill!  I cried after my run it was SO HARD and challenged me so much!

My van of ladies!!!  I love these girls they are amazing!

Our whole team 
"Where the Wild things run!"

Can't wait till next year!!!!

Dance recital!

The end of year dance recital was a complete success!  The girls all danced and did so well!  Violet was a flower and before her dance started she tipped over in her pot!  The whole audience laughed it was adorable!  After her dance she said "mom I jacked up my dance" not sure where she learned that?!  The older girls danced to Rockin' Robin.
She is absolutely adorable!

My little Diva!!

Cousin dancers!!!

I wanna be a real cowboy!!!!

Preston idolizes his dad!  When James was working in Texas for 6 months he became friends with a dentist at the office.  When he quit the dentist bought him a VERY nice pair of cowboy boots!  Preston loves to go get the boots on and say "I am a cowboy like daddy!"

The End of Soccer!

After coaching Preston and Violet's soccer team the season finally ended.  I was really happy since it was one thing we would not have to worry about every week!  I love all the kids on team and really enjoyed coaching them.  To celebrate the last game we went to Parley's place for dinner!
Violet decided to wear her "pretty skirt" to the game!

James decided that he wanted to grow a beard, he said it makes him look older?!  He told me he is sick of people asking him if he is old enough to be a Dr.  I am not much a fan of facial hair but I think he looks nice with it!  I do like to tease him and ask "Who is that creeper holding my baby!"
