Flag Football!!

Preston played flag football this fall he really loved going to the games and actually made 1 touchdown and pulled a few kids flags!!!  It was fun to go to his games and watch little Pressy run around and cheer him on!!!

Napa Valley Ragnar!!!

Our couples Ragnar team ran the Napa Valley Ragnar this year.  It was gruelling and by far the hardest Ragnar I have ever run but when we finished it was so rewarding!!!  Four members of our team ended up not being able to attend due to the death of a close family friend and the fact that one of them (the stake president) was speaking at the funeral.  So we were short four runners, Evan immediately conned Jim Dillon (a good friend) into running it with us and he jumped on a plane and came to save the day.  I was only planning on running a total of 13 miles but ended up with 20.  James only planned on 18 but ran 26.  We all ran 4 legs and that last leg was sheer torture but we all pulled together and finished the race!!  We bonded and laughed and enjoyed our amazing trip to San Francisco with a stop at Alcatraz, lots of shopping, Lombard street and a few stops at Ghiradelli square!!!
Can't go and not eat at Scomas!!!  Mmmmmm
Lobster ravioli!!!!

Alcatraz interesting and beautiful!

Our nine man team (not pictured Jim Dillon)

James was lucky and got to run across the Golden Gate bridge!!! 
 7 miles of beauty and the run we all wanted!!!

Our awesome team van!!!  We wrote on the back the 'what not's of running' such as
do NOT forget toilet paper
do NOT eat mexican food before a big run
all whatnots are from personal experience and we laughed so hard writing them all!

The last day we relaxed drove all over the city and stopped for some more Ghiradelli ice cream!!!

Giant Jenga!!!

I borrowed my sisters giant jenga to use for Primary singing time and we decided to play it as a family.  It got really intense since we are all so competitive and we all ended up laughing and talking trash!!!

Nebo half!!

I ran the Nebo half marathon with Kim and Allison.  We had so much fun training and getting ready for the race!  The night before we all went to dinner (Emily too because she was running a different race the next day too)!  Early Saturday morning we left for the 1/2, we had to be on the bus at 5:15!!  The race started at 7 and boy was it cold!!!  We were making record time but at about mile 6 I had tummy troubles!!  We would have come in around 2:10 but I really slowed us down!  I felt awful and kept telling them to go ahead, but we decided before the race that we would all finish together!!!  I am so blessed to have such amazing supportive friends!  To top off a horrible race the clock apparently stopped working?  So my time was never recorded!  According to my Garmin we came in at exactly 2:30 which was not too bad considering the 3 bathroom stops!  I cannot wait to redeem myself next year and run it again!
Dinner the night before!

On the bus up and at the start and finish!

I look like I am fake smiling because I was!!  I was so sick!!!  
I went home and spent the rest of the day in the bathroom and bed!  
I also had a fever, so I think I may have had a bug!!

37th Birthday!

On Labor day I turned 37, we started the morning off with the Payson parade where we danced our pants off as inflatable teeth!  It was exhausting but lots of fun!!  Then we all got ready and went laser tagging!  The kids had so much fun playing with cousins and friends!  We finished off the day at Chick-fil-a where I had a gourmet birthday dinner!  The kids loved dinner and so did I!!
