So what do 4 women do when they have no children or hubbies around?
So this past weekend three of my good friends and I flew to Salt Lake for a girls weekend and to run the Top of Utah marathon. We have been training together since my last marathon in April. We had a blast with some pain involved. If you want more marathon details go to http://www.marathonmommies.blogspot.com/ to read my post titled Top of Utah marathon. For those of you who do not want all the details of the race I will spare you.
- They buy People magazine to catch up on all the hollywood gossip while riding on the plane without wiggly children
- They stay up late watching Made of Honor, eventhough they know that they should go to bed
- They go to the Salt Lake temple and enjoy a live session together
- They try and figure out what the whistling noise in the car is, but finally give up and get used to it
- They try and figure out what a good pre-race meal would be and end up at Quiznos
- They get up at 4am to go run 26.2 miles, yes we are crazy!!
- They all finish the race and are still alive to talk about it thanks to Mike who sent me with Zofran (anti-nausea drug)
- They go out to dinner and drink Diet Coke happy to not be drinking water or gatorade!
- They shop, go to a movie at 10pm, and stay up talking and laughing until 2am. Awake for 22hours and ran 26.2 miles. Again we are crazy!!
- Grow to love and appreciate each other even more!
We had an awesome time, I am proud to call these ladies my friends.
My Mom, Dad, sis-in-law and neice were nice enough to drive up to Salt Lake on Sunday and we all went to Music and the Spoken Word with the Mo-Tab choir. It was amazing!!! President Monson was there and spoke a little after the performance. It was a very moving experience and I am sso glas that i drug myself out of bed! It was fun to see some of my family. I feel very blessed to have a life full of great family and friends.
My cup runneth over.

I am way behind on blogging! Since school started my life is so busy. It seems like I am running nonstop from the time I get up!
Sewing his school back with Teacher Linda

I asked him what he was doing to which he responded, " I drank something that tasted like concrete."
I of course was very confused as his chocolate milk was right next to me and it did not taste like concrete. I asked a few more questions like, "Did you really drink something?", and "Where is this thing that you drank?"
He responded, Yes, I did drink something and then he pointed up to the play structure.
So I asked him to go retrieve this thing that he had drunk. I sat there a little apprehensive waiting for him to return. All the time hoping that it would not be what I was thinking that it would be.
Sure enough he came down with one of those king size cans of budweiser. What is a can of beer doing in the kids play structure at McDonalds? What is my son doing drinking out of any open container that he finds?
I took the can to the manager and let him know that there was obviously some extracurricular activities going on after hours in their play structure. He was apologetic and very surprised. Then I had a discussion with Jackson about not eating or drinking anything that he finds. What is common sense to me isn't always common sense to my almost 5 year old obviously.
So beware what your kids might find in the McDonalds play structure. While disgusting it is definitely a classic Jackson thing to do. Gotta love him!!!
Boys are a different breed! I used to think that people were just saying that. I don't anymore!!! You have to love this boy with ice cream all over his glasses!

From this picture you would think that it is Noah's first day of school.
I had to take a picture to document what grade school she is going to. I think that I won't forget but you never know.
I dropped her off on the 1st day so that I could meet her teacher with her. She started right in on her work and has never looked back. So far she is still excited to get up and go. We will see how long that lasts. So far her favorite part of school is everything and recess.

Enjoying the moment while waiting for Megan to finish our last leg and meet us at the finish line! So proud of her!!! Megan is my neice who flew up from Utah to run with us! Thank you to Marcae also for flying up from Utah! It would not have been the same without these ladies!! Shout out to Brian, Marcae's husband who kept their 4 month old while she ran! Running toward the finish line, what an awesome feeling of accomplishment and team spirit!
29 hours, 11 minutes, and 45 seconds later we are still smiling and have made many memories in the process! Thanks to an awesome team and to all those who put up with all of the stress that I went through planning it! It was all worth it! Love you guys!
