Lake Day

For Memorial Day Drew took us out in his boat to Utah Lake. This is such a treat for us! I think Taylor's all time favorite thing to do is go boating. He loves to be out on the water. Capri loved the boat too. I think she mostly just loved all of the attention she got from us because of how dang cute she is in her little swimming suit! It was a perfect day. Thanks Drew and Rach!!!

Weekend Getaway

At the last minute Capri and I decided to hop on a plane and go visit our friends, The Pinegar's in California. Both of our husbands were busy working so we thought it would be a perfect little getaway.  I talked to Lindsey and we planned on a weekend of fun! We would go to Disneyland, swim, go to the beach and of course shop. Lindsey and her girls picked us up from the airport and we headed out shopping immediately, we went to Lulu (my fave), Nordstrom and some cute kids boutiques.
 The next day we woke up early and went to Disneyland. Yes, we braved the crowds, shuttles, and strollers all by ourselves with no husbands to help. It was an adventure but we did it and had so much fun. Capri's favorite ride was It's a Small World. She was mesmerized!  When we got home that night the flu hit me hard! I felt so bad that I was so sick. Sp I went to bed at about 8:30 and thankfully Capri went to bed with me and slept through the whole night. She is perfect! 
The next day all three little girls got sick. It was horrible but we still wanted to have some fun so we headed to Nordstrom at Fashion Island. Pretty soon Capri had a major explosion in the dressing room and was walking around the mall with me in only a diaper. I think that is the only time I have felt like a bad Mom ha! On Saturday it seemed we were all done with the flu so we headed to Laguna and Newport to go to the Beach. It was Beautiful! Capri just wanted to eat the sand and Lindsey's  girls were in heaven! Later that night we decided we NEEDED a break so we got a baby sitter and went to Maggiano's for dinner and then BJ's for dessert. Don't worry, the cookie and ice cream we ate was only 5,000 calories!!! It was a great way to end our trip. Even though we ALL got sick we had a great time!!!

Pool Day

Yesterday we had our first official pool day! Capri was in heaven. I think we have ourselves a little fish. She cried every time I tried to get her out of the water. It's a good thing she loved it so much because I have a feeling we are going to be spending most our time in the pool when we move to hot Arizona!!!

Mothers Day

We started to celebrate Mothers Day on Saturday. My morning started off with what I thought would be a 10 mile run... My cute running friends and I decided it would be fun to do a trail run up to Squapeak. When we got to the top it was BEAUTIFUL!!! We thought it was so pretty that we wanted to keep going up on a trail we found. We started running and running. Pretty soon we were lost and could not figure out how to get down this mountain! I was seriously getting scared! I thought a mountain lion was going to get us or I thought we would be on the news that night because we couldn't find our way back!! None of us had cell phones, we ran out of water and we had gone (we think) 15 miles. Luckily we ran into some hikers and they were nice enough to let us use their phones to call our husbands. After calling and calling we finally got a hold of Abbey's hubby. He said he would be there as soon as he could, so we started running down a dirt road. After about twenty minutes we saw Abbey's husband pull up. We were so happy to see him, I felt like I could cry. We were so exhauseted because the whole run was straight up hill!! Looking back at it now I had a blast and would run that trail again! I would just be smarter about it! 

After I got home from the run Taylor surprised me with a 90 minute massage and Pedicure. Nothing sounded better than that!! After I got home from a few hours of pampering, Tay and I put on our sweats, went to gurus and then came home and watched Friday Night Lights. It was a perfect day! Other than the traumatic running incidence!! 

On Sunday we went to church, took a drive, and had a big Mother's day dinner. It was a great weekend! I am so greadtful to be a Mom to the sweetest, cutest, baby girl around. Nothing makes me happier then spending my days taking care of Capri.

Half Marathon Relay

Tay and I did a half marathon relay this weekend and it was so much fun. We were both supposed to run 6.5 miles but as Tay was getting done with his leg he yelled to me that he was just going to keep going and run with me for my part, he had decided to run all 13.1 at the last minute. He is crazy... He didn't even train! I have the most athletic husband! 

This was such a fun day! It made me so excited for the Utah Valley half that I have really been training for! Also I entered myself and Taylor into the lottery for the St. George Marathon. I am sure we probably wont get in but its worth a try!!! 

Can't run any race with out my Lulu on. I think it makes me run faster!!!;)

I graduated last week from UVU in Communication. I am SO happy to be done with school! It's the best feeling ever! My whole family came to support me and made it such a great day. 

Now we are getting ready to move to Arizona. I am super excited. It will be a fun new adventure. We are also training for a few different races. Tomorrow Tay and I are doing the Provo City half marathon relay. Wish us Luck!!!
