I can't believe my little nephew Brayden is graduated! I guess he's not so little anymore. I just love this kid and have forever! I spent much of my younger years tending him and loved every minute of it! It has been so fun watching him grow up. Love you Brayd!

See what I mean, not so little anymore!
I cannot believe these are my two nephews! WOW!
I'm so glad my little boys have such good examples to follow.

And on to our next graduation. Hailey is leaving elementary and heading to the big Middle School. She couldn't be happier, but I have to say, it's a little wierd for me. Didn't I just barely go to that school? She can't wait to be able to chew gum and wear flip-flops. It's gonna be great! Hailey is such a good student I know she'll do great in middle school.
Her school had a breakfast for all the kids leaving. This is not the best picture of me, but I'm really not used to being up and at it by 7am!! But it was worth it. Congrats Hailey!

Ogden Marathon Relay

Me and a bunch of my friends decided it would be fun to run a marathon relay! Turns out...we were right! We had such a fun weekend eating out, shopping, laughing (HARD), not sleeping, and running. We headed up to Salt Lake on Friday and the first stop was, of course, the Cheesecake Factory! Sooooo good! Then we went and shopped for a while before heading up to Ogden. We got to Ogden and went to the expo to pick up our packets and ran into about 20 people from Delta. That always happens! Then it was off for more food at the Pizza Factory, then we drove the marathon course. We got back to our hotel and really didn't sleep at all. Thats another story! Anyway, it was up at 4:30 am to get ready to load the bus. It was so fun watching all the runners coming down the canyon. Our team came in 85 out of 130 teams, so I thought that was pretty okay. It was such a fun weekend and we can't wait to do it again!

The Cheesecake Factory!

We had to take a break from shopping to get a foot rub!

"So NOT team Edward" Good job name stealers! They were
39 out of 130 teams!

Go Team Edward!!!!
Tiff, Melody, Kim, Michelle, Me (wishing I would have put
my shirt back on)

Both teams together!

Thumbs up! We're done, we did awesome, and we'll be back
Next year!
I could not have done this trip without my awesome husband. Max and Sydni both ended up getting sick the day I left, but he was a trooper and took such good care of them. Thanks Justin!

Wow! We have been REALLY busy! As crazy as summer will be, I am ready for school to be out. We have been doing a lot lately, but I haven't been doing so good at taking pictures.

The Kindergarten was out for three days, so me and some friends decided to take the kids up to Jumpin' Jacks in Springville. It was really fun, and the kids loved it! We will probably be going back there again since the girls didn't get to go and "Thats Not Fair" (this phrase is now like swearing at our house and if you say it you get your mouth washed out with soap!!)

Hailey had her end of the year dance recital, and did great. She has really loved dance this year. The girls also had their end of the year piano recital. They don't particularly love piano, but they are doing good. We have watched a track meet and baseball game. I hope my boys get their cousins athletic abilities! Hailey and Syd are in the children's choir and they had their program this week. You would not believe how good they sound! Poor Jonah was determined not to miss a day of school this year, and came down with influenza the last week of school! What a bummer! Hailey is going to Middle School next year and couldn't be happier. My parent's still haven't got their mission call yet, so we have no idea when they are leaving! Well, thats about it in a nutshell. I am going to try to remember my camera more often!!
