Happenings

So there has been a lot going on with us lately so I am going to post an overall update of the Happenings. At the beginning of April I had the chance to go to Scottsdale, AZ with some of my amazing girlfriends. Since I am way to lazy to post the picture if you want to see us crazy girls in action check out some of my friends blogs for pictures. I had so much fun. It was the longest I have ever left Carter and I missed him like crazy but it was really fun to get together with the girls and get some R & R and laugh a lot.

Easter was fun! I left Arizona with my girlfriends Easter morning at 4am. We got into SLC around 5pm. Jamie and I went to my parents house for Easter dinner. I had only a little time to spend with them because I had to work that night 7pm-730am. I think I was up for like 24 hours or more, but it was totally worth it.
The next weekend April 18th I ran the Salt Lake City half marathon. Now I had every intention to train for the race but got busy and just didn't make the time to run that I needed to. So the Friday before the race I went to the expo and signed myself up for the race. I didn't train at all and was sore for about 4 days after. It was a lot of fun though and I was glad that I did it. Races are so much fun. I had to walk a little after 9 miles so my time really sucked but I had a goal of running it in less than 3 hours. I made that goal barely but I think my time was like 2:54 I know pretty pathetic. I really do need to start running because I am doing the Wasatch back with my brother and sister in law and their team in June. I am really excited to do the Wasatch back/Ragnar relay this year for those who want to know more about it, here is there website. http://www.ragnarrelay.com/index.php

Jamie has had a little break off of school. It has been so nice having him around and not studying all the time. I am so proud of him he got such good grades this semester in graduate level courses. Way to go babe! Jamie is taking one class this Summer and is looking for a job in the school system. So if anyone has any leads send them our way.

Carter is 11 months old today (May 17th) I can hardly believe my baby is almost a year. He is such a fun kid. He is starting to walk a little. The most I have seen him do is take three steps in a row. He loves being outside, riding in his stroller, eating fruit, clapping his hands, waving bye bye, getting into everything he shouldn't, playing with his cars, and jumping on the tramp to name a few. He is so much fun and I couldn't imagine life any other way without him.




SO big in his front facing car seat. He loves going on drives.
