Riley and I ran a 1/2 marathon a weekend or so ago and LOVED it! It was great to have Riley by my side throughout the whole thing. It was a beautiful race and a beautiful (but rainy) day!
Here are my cute kids with their great smiles! Life is good.

Oh and my sister and my bro in law had their fifth baby, so great! We love little Blake!

Riley and I just celebrated our six year anniversary, wow! However, it has been eleven years since we met one another. We have come a long way and we have two beautiful children and a very happy life to show for it. Thanks for the fun Riley, here are some recent pictures of our Memorial Day trip and Rigdon's 6 month pictures from JCPenney.

Honestly, it has been since the birth of our little dude, Rigdon, that I've taken the time to blog (almost six months ago). As some of you may know I was pressured into starting a blog without a real desire to do it because I'm a digital scrapbooker at heart.....and as you can tell the scrapbooking has won out in the end. However, I felt like posting a little something letting you all know we are alive.

Quick update.

Riley just finished his first year of graduate school at BYU. He is still an intern with the UDWR and loving his job and work. He is a biologist and has found his calling in life, I am so glad that he loves what he does and does what he loves! He spent five days in the Heber Valley Hospital a couple of weeks ago, he is recovering and feeling much better. We are both training for a half marathon together that we will be running in June.

In addition to mothering and enjoying my days full of exercising, reading, playing with the kids, cooking and whatever else I feel like doing I have been spending much of my time tutoring math students. This has been a fun hobby for me because all of my tutoring money goes into my "vacation" jar which paid our way to California in February and is also paying mine and Riley's way to Boston, MA this upcoming Friday! That is right we are going on a second honeymoon this Friday for EIGHT beautiful days. We are leaving the kiddos at home and looking forward to a Red Sox vs. Yankees game, historical sites, seafood, Cape Cod and the beautiful ocean that we can see outside of our studio suite!

My two kids are doing well and growing every day! Kenna has a darling personality that keeps me laughing. Just today while we were at the library she pointed to a magazine that had Glenn Beck on the cover and said, "Mommy that is Barak Obama!" I just laughed because this poor girl is way over her head in politics. I guess that's what she gets having a family who is obsessed with Glenn Beck and other political figures! Rigdon is a sweet baby and has a very kind and loving demeanor, he is such a joy!
