K ran her second SLC (third overall) half marathon this weekend and did awesome. She's funny because she always gets a little nervous beforehand, but kicks tail on her runs. She has a great natural running ability. It's fun to watch her too. This year I took all the kiddies along. We had gotten them all cowbells at the expo the night before and A really got into ringing his, but N and T were so taken by all the runners they just stood and watched them all go by. People would see them and say hello though, which was nice of them.
Teeny and Jayne
The family pic....nice yellows
The biker dudes and Teeny's medal
I had planned out different places along the route we'd see her and as it worked out I had just enough time between each place to pack up the kids, drive to the next spot, unpack the kids, watch her go by and then load them up all over again. Jesse and Neil biked from Riverton to see her run, and her sister Jayne came up to see her too. Becky met us at the finish line. It was great having all that support there for Teeny. It means a lot to her, and me. We've both decided that next year we'll get a room downtown and make a weekend of it.
Anyway, she did great and we're all so proud to have such a great wife, mom, friend, sister, etc..!!
We also went to the tulip festival at Thanksgiving Point. Although the tulips weren't out yet, it was still a blast. The kids ran their little legs out. The gardens are huge and have so much to see. We'll have to go back a couple times to get it all in.
A called these tulips 'roses' because they were red...
Takin' a breather
These next pics are just fun ones I wanted to add....
Bubbles and kids....nothing more fun
N and his cousin Fisher

Teeny had a 'zim-zam' when she was a kid. We had to get this when we saw it.
