Something to blog about

January is one long....boring month. Nothing too exciting has been going on at our house. Finally this weekend we were able to have a little getaway. We left for Cedar on Friday and spent the night with Justin's sister Hilary. It's always fun hanging out with them and all our kids are the same age, so they have lots of fun too. Then on Saturday my friend Tiffany and I were signed up to run a 5k in St. George so we headed down there early in the morning and met up with her. We were both a little nervous since we haven't been running for too long and we've never run three miles without stopping. But I have to say we did pretty good. We ran the whole way and never stopped to walk, plus we ran a little faster than we usually do (which still isn't really fast) so I think we were both pretty proud of ourselves. Plus the weather was awesome, so that's another bonus. I love St. George.....in the winter.

Then Justin's sister was nice enough to keep all the kids for the day so Justin and I could have a day together. After the race we went to the temple, then to lunch at outback - thanks to Michelle. It was a really great day!


My pictures are in wrong order as usual - this is after the race. We made it!
About to run

One more funny story...I really wanted Justin to be at the finish line so he could take our picture coming across. He sat there with his camera ready for about ten minutes just waiting. Pretty soon some poor girl starting puking right before she crossed the finish line. Justin was a little sidetracked by that and totally missed me crossing. By the time I found him, he was still waiting for me with the camera! :) Oh well, maybe next time.

Awesome job!! That is great you guys ran all three miles - way to go! I am sure I will never catch up so I should just stay on my couch with a bag of peanut M&M's! :)
