Amelia turns 11

We had a birthday at our house.  Amelia turned 11.  Our girl wanted a sewing machine for her birthday, so that's what she ended up getting.  She also received sewing accessories and packs to make clothes for her American Girl Doll.

Later, Grandma and Grandpa came over and gave her an intense coloring book and new colored pencils.

Provo Haunted Half Marathon 2016

I ran the Provo Haunted Half Marathon.  I signed up to run because I really wanted the Trilogy medal from Runtastic Events.  The things I do for a medal...  I need help!

Obligatory bus-selfie with Jaci and Sha

Our whole group: Bea, Lisa, Jaci, Sha and I

At the finish line!  Not my best race at all.  I didn't really train for it and the last 3 miles are uphill which is awful!!  But, I finished and that's all that matters.  Probably will not be running this race again unless the course changes.

My finisher swag!

AFS Lagoon Day 2016

We had another great day at Lagoon, thanks to Associated Food Stores.

Clara was a little less-than-thrilled to ride Bombora.

First day of school 2016–2017

It was the first day of school around here. Unfortunately, my first day of school picture taking has become quite lackluster.   Jared signed up for early morning seminary and was already to the school by the time Nathan and I got home from CrossFit.  I did manage to snap a picture of Clara and Amelia. Clara started kindergarten and Amelia is now in fifth grade.

Nathan dropped Isaac off at school and as they headed out the door I reminded Nathan to get a picture of him.  When Nathan sent me the picture, you will see below, I asked him why it was so far away. He replied, I almost forgot to take it and as I was driving away I snapped this one.

 The picture of Jared, it's from this evening. 

 Oh well, here's to a great year!

Jared turns 15

My biggest child turned 15 yesterday, and he is finally taller than me.  Not sure how I'm feeling about that.

This morning Nathan took him to the DMV to get his learner's permit.  Crazy stuff!

Dinosaur Land Excursion 2016

Because Nathan and I were running a race in Vernal, we decided to take the kids with us and see some of the sights.  Grandma and Grandpa Carter joined us.  We visited the visitor center and the quarry.

We also went to the Utah Field House of Natural History State Park Museum.  The kids had a great time exploring and learning.

We stayed at the Spring Hill Inn and Suites in Vernal and it was a very nice hotel.  If we ever find ourselves out in Vernal again, we will stay there for sure.
