The Race: Wasatch Back 2009

this was the only hill I had to run
After my first 6.7 mile

I saw my cute friend Heather right before her night run.

My hill was nothing compared to Sara's 8 miles of this. She is in the orange shirt

The finish line
So this last weekend my sister Sara and I ran the Wasatch Back. We ran from Logan to Park City: 188 miles. I was a little scared at first knowing that I had to run 13 miles and I haven't been training....but it was a blast. I had to run three different times over two days. Thank goodness I made it and even better felt great the entire time. Our team was fun, I had just met them that morning. They made it go by so fast and were great runners. I don't think I have seen so many runners in my life. Their were all sorts of costumes and crazys all on the road. We made the 188 miles total in 31 hours. We were all in it to have fun and finish. I had so much fun that I actually want to do it again!

Can you believe it....Oakley is One!

The girls in jammies.

That's all I can say...can you believe she is already one?! I don't want her to get big. She is such a sweetheart. I just love this girl to death. I have had so much fun with her. She has seriously been the best baby ever. She has the cutest personality from her mom and her daddy good looks....what is better than that?! haha! We had her birthday over at Grandma Sue's house. Ever since we went to Palm Springs, Oaks has been obsessed with ducks. So we went with it for her party. This little girl has been the best thing for our family. Our boys love her to death. She gets so excited to see them and loves to play with them. They go in every morning and wake her up because they want to play with her. She has been such a blessing in our lives. I don't I could have been luckier. It makes me want another one of her...ha ha! We will see. Who knows.

Palm Springs

Oakley and her ducks
Street Festival

We took Ryker and Oakley for a week vacation to Palm Spring. We have been so busy with work and things that it was nice to get away. I love Palm Springs because it is a relaxing trip. You basically can choose to do nothing and not feel guilty! I love that! We stayed right on the green at the Marriott Dessert nice. Oakley was obsessed with the ducks everywhere in the ponds. She kept saying "duck". She is getting so big! We went swimming all day and took naps, played at the park and just had fun hanging out with my kids. Right now in my life this was the best vacation ever!! :)
