So this weekend was a blast!! First off Ray and I went on a date to the homecoming football game for the school he teaches at. It was so nice to be able to actually watch the game and follow it. Then Saturday morning I ran in a 5K race. My sister-in-law's Stake put on a fun run and so I decided to run in it. It's been about 10 years since I ran a race and so it felt really good. I finished with a time of 28:13, placed 2nd for my age group (20-29), and placed about 35th overall. I'm hoping to run a couple of more races this year and improve my time.

This is the running crew. :) My good friend Katie, Katie's sis-in-law and Kathryn's nieghbor Kandice, my sis-in-law Kathryn, and me. Trying to get a little warmed up before the race. It was cold that morning!

I was NOT about to let this young kid beat me. Proudly, I did beat him!! :)

They also had a 1 mile run for the kids. Logan placed 3rd for his age group and finished in about 14 minutes. Way to go kid!!
After the race we (meaning Ray's three sisters and their families) all went for a walk. This was not a good idea where it was about 95-100 degrees outside. But it worked because we walked around the river and decided to play in the water which the kids thoroughly loved!

Logan found a "skeleton rock".
Playing in the river. I'm still getting used to the idea that this is a river. Where I'm from, a river is a "little bit" deeper and faster. Oh well, it works for what we need!
Logan enjoyed relaxing in the water.

Messy Faces

These messy faces are just too stinkin' cute!

Somehow Logan has stayed relatively clean lately and so there's no messy face pic for him, but he's still cute!

This last week has been a "finishing" week for us. We've been looking for a new car for a few months and finally found one!! Yes, we are now minivan owners and it doesn't bother me one bit! It has the room we're looking for and the separation for the kids. Now I don't have to hear "he's touching me" anymore! :) It's a 2007 Chevy Uplander and I love it!!!

The next thing we finished was our back yard!! I can't even tell you how excited I am about this! It took ALOT of hard work, and the help of very good family and friends. We plan on using this yard alot, whether it be for the boys to escape to or to have many BBQs, it is totally worth all that it took to make it happen.
