Having a place to go is home, having someone to love is family, having both is a blessing!

The 5K race!

Jason and I ran the 5k here in Ladysmith for Mardi Gras! It was something that we have been working on for some time now and we were able to do it! Jason was able to speed up towards the end so his time was a little better than mine...Jason 36:31 mine was 37:16. I wanted to beat my training time and I only did by 2 seconds but the actual race was alot hillier than my course:) It was so great to do it together and now our next goal is a 10k in September. I don't know if we will be ready by then but we will try! It was wonderful to have Jason's parents here cheering us on and helping out with the kiddos! Thanks a bunch!

These are our good friends Josh and Gina. They finished alot sooner than we did but cheered us on at the end:) Jason works with Josh at the hospital he is another PT who moved here about the same time we did.

Cousins visiting!

Since Caleb and Mitchell were here visiting their grandma and grandpa in Green Bay I thought that it would be fun to have them come and stay with us for a few days here in Ladysmith so that the cousins could spend time together! We had alot of fun! We had a bon fire and roasted marshmellows, went to the beach at our park alot and geocaching!!..and also did many other things together including going to the Blue hills festival where they got to play games, get tatoos, compete in a tractor pull and watch baseball! It was a great visit.....we sure love them! We will miss them when they go back to Logan, Utah.

It's about time huh?!?!?!

I know I haven't posted in a long time so I have alot to catch up on so sit back and enjoy! I am totally converted to facebook because my pictures upload alot faster and it is just fun! So if you don't have a facebook I suggest you get one and join the millions that have one:)

Our beach!

We went to the beach on the 3rd when Heidi got here with her girls. We had alot of fun! It was perfect sand and great weather! The water was a little cool but you got used to it quick! We hung out there why the guys back home were putting in the floor in the bathroom! It was alot of fun!

4th of July!

We had alot of fun on the 4th! It was great to have my sister Heidi here with her family! My kids loved playing with their cousins and loved doing sparklers together. We had a bon fire and had smores and just hung out! We love our fire pit it turned out awesome! Landon and Allie loved the sparklers they were even trying to grab at the hot part. We had an all around good ol' time together.

a little bit at a time!

Being that our house was built in the 70's there are countless things that we would like to change! But we have to do a little at a time because it is pricey! Since my bro in law Jeff was coming up for the 4th he suggested laying down the hardwood floor we wanted in our bathroom. He is amazing and always does a perfect job....we are so lucky to have him in our family:) Plus he gives us a great deal! Jason and I had fun taking all our aggression out getting the tile up we did that to lower the cost of the job. I must say that it was really fun actually hammering the crap out of it!:) The end result is amazing and we LOVE IT!!! Thanks Jeff....now we have a little piece of your home in ours:)

Jason doing some sanding....you can see how much crap was in the air....ahhh! He helped out alot it was kinda fun to see him working that way:)

I did it!

I have been training for my first 5k run and was finally able to run a full 3.1 miles plus to my house so a little longer:)! My sister is a big runner she once ran the St. George marathon so I figured since she was going to be visiting us for the 4th of July I would put her to work and have her train me and see if I could run the whole way......she is an amazing coach and was able to slow me down when needed and push me at the end! I sure wish that she could run the actual race with me on the 18th! Knowing that I have done it once pushes me even more to do it again!
Thanks Heidi, you are awesome!!!

Kenzie's butterfly!

Kenzie caught a caterpillar about 2 weeks ago and wanted to keep it. I told her to get some leaves and sticks and put it in a jar. She wanted to take it to show one of her friends the next morning. When she went to get it she couldn't find it and realized it had turned into a cacoon (spelling?) she was sad because she wanted to show her friend but I told her that it would turn into a butterfly soon and to wait. Well sure enough it did and she was able to hold it before it flew away! Now she can't wait to find another one!

lunchtime or naptime?!?:)

Olivia was so tired the other day she was in the middle of eating her yogurt and fell fast asleep. I can't imagine how uncomfortable her chair was, but to her she didn't care......this is why I usually wait until after her nap to feed her:)
