Bryce Canyon 1/2 Marathon

Over the weekend of the 19th my Dad and I had a fun opportunity to run the Bryce Canyon 1/2 marathon. We made a weekend out of the trip, complete with a campout at the local KOA in Cannonville. I had a great time with my Dad (like I always do!) I am grateful to him and his desire to get me involved in running. I have to brag about him- he is almost 60 and has run 20 marathons now and 2 half marathons. That is amazing!!! He is encouraging, and even though I am painfully slow he always stays with me and - hey- we finished!!!

Happy Anniversary - Happy 4th of July

Here are some pics of the 4th. We began the morning at the parade in Ogden with my sister-in-law Judith - wait did I say parade? I meant a bunch of cars throwing candy and then more candy. My nieces and nephews took home 6 and half POUNDS of candy(yeah they weighed it!) Not to mention the bag full Brent and Aubrie collected for me. It was hilarious. I was dying. I highly recommend this parade for kids. You won't see any floats, but you will see junior high school officers, and stock your shelves with candy until Halloween. Seriously it was funny!
That night- fireworks and toddlers.... it was actually really comical because we went to my brother's house and all the 3 little ones wanted to do was ride their bikes in the backyard. Brent and Brian got to rock out with some sparklers and flowers and we wondered why we bought any at all? It was entertaining!

On a more exciting note- Brent and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary this weekend. He took me to Park City Friday. I loved that he arranged the babysitting (nice huh?) and took me shopping, to a nice Italian dinner on Main street- and we stayed at the Yarrow hotel for the night. Just some of the reasons why I LOVE my cute husband after ALL these years....

Good Thing Utah Guest CoHost

On Wednesday I had a blast! I had the opportunity (because I sent in a videotape) to be a guest cohost for the day on a local talk show called Good Things Utah. It was very nervewracking but also very fun. I cannot believe how many people saw it. That part is embarrasing- people at work have been coming up to me and saying they saw me- friends calling etc... but its also kind of fun. I totally appreciate all of my friends who came. You can see my Mom here , Kristin, Leslie, Erika and Tammy. Also thanks to Becky and her sisters for making it to the show. I think working in television would be so fun! Attatched below are links to watch the video incase you missed it. I know I'm a total dork and look nervous (hey I was)- but it really was a great opportunity that I highly recommend and would do again in a heartbeat!
