Memorial Day BBQ

Today we had a yummy lunch with my family.

I made these two cakes for dessert:



We had a little pogo stick competition!!
(I think I was the best, but my mom is actually REALLY good too!!)





I just think that this picture of Gracie is SOOO cute!!  
The ONLY brown-eyed grandchild!!  Those eyes are so cute!!


And candy and hugs from Grandpa Welling!


To the Cemetery

Today we went to the cemeteries. 

We never found Grandma and Grandpa Gunnerson, but we did make it to Grandma Mortensen, Grandpa Hodgkinson, and Grandma Welling.  

The kids were asleep on the first two, hence all the pictures by Grandma Welling’s headstone. 

Boy we sure love and miss these folks!

Memorial Day 5k


A few weeks ago I ran into my old (like from way back before I had any kids) running partner, Jana. 

I told her that I needed to start running again, and she agreed to be my partner again.

This girl is AMAZING!!  She is a fantastic runner—like running half marathons on the weekends for fun.

Not only is she a great runner, but she’s fun to run with and even though I’m sure I slow her WAY down she is patient with me.

Well, today we ran a 5k.  I only had one goal—to run it under 30 minutes.

Check it out ladies and gentlemen….

 After the race we had a yummy breakfast. 
 (My kids also LOVE Jana—especially because 90% of the time they come with us on our runs).

And of course, since there was a fire truck we had to take a few pictures by it, and IN it!




Thanks Jana!!!  YOU ARE THE BEST!!!

Get out the Chalk!



Bountiful Sidewalk Chalk Festival is in full swing!



It really is one of my favorite traditions, and the kids are getting old enough that they love it too!



Today we did our own artwork with a few of our friends while we ate our lunches.
We’ll go back later in the week with Darin to see the “real artists” finished products.


















If you are anywhere near Bountiful  you need to go check it out on Main Street!
