My First Race and another Preschool Graduation

Annie did not have school last Friday so Friday morning we headed to St. George where Friday night Me, Kim, and Annie ran the Midnight 5K. It is the first race I have ever run. Kim and Annie ran it last year and it was so fun I thought I need to do that next year with them. And I did! I walk/run 2 miles about 4 times a week so I thought I should be able to do a 5K. With the heat down there and the extra 1.2 miles it was harder than I thought it would be but it was still a lot of fun and a race I was able to do. I am proud of myself for finishing in 41 minutes. (My husband who has run 2 marathons and many 5K's and 10K's only finished a minute before me. Annie beat us both by a good 10 minutes. They had music playing and music video's going at the beginning and end of the race. People were dancing and rocking out to the music. It was a party. After the race we were treated to water, Gatorade, watermelon, and pizza. It was fun and I look forward to doing it again next year. April and her girls went with us to hang out at the condo we stayed in and enjoy a little bit of summertime, because at our house we are still having winter. Kaitlyn didn't know how she felt about grass.

Brianna was the baby bottle stealer.

Me with my florescent glasses showing the back of the cool florescent tee shirts they gave us to wear.

We had fun with the florescent glasses, and glow sticks before we left for the race. Eliza thought it was all so awesome!

The race started and ended at the old St George airport. This is us with one of our neighbors who was there running it right before the race began.

Kim and I after the race. I was ready for my pizza.

Me with little Kaitlyn. It is amazing how long a bottle of bubbles can entertain little girls.

We had such a fun week end. I can't wait to do it again next year! The picture below is random. Warren wanted me to take a picture of him with his baby cousin one day last week when I was tending. So here it is.

Last Wed. was Warren's preschool graduation. He is the cute boy sitting second to last on the right.

Saying the Pledge of Allegiance.

Singing to the parents and grandparents.

Getting his certificate and gift.

He couldn't wait to get that graduation hat off. Once it came off there was no way he was putting it back on for any pictures.

Seminary Graduation, Preschool Graduation, Soccer, Recital

The past week has been busy. First I attended cute Warren's soccer game. Can I tell you how cute it is to watch these little tiny kids chasing a soccer ball. Warren was a very good player and made several goals. Little Weston made me laugh. He did not want to have his little bare feet touch the grass.

I had to get a picture of me and Weston because we had matching shirts on.

Then on Thursday I attended Eliza's preschool graduation. The theme was Jungle Animals and when you put 20 4 and 5 year old's in a room together they can act like jungle animals especially monkeys. She looked cute in her jungle hat, sun glasses , and lei.

On Sat. evening we attended Eliza's dance recital. The theme was a Princess Garden. There were little Cinderellas, Sleeping beauties, Frog Princesses, Odille's, and Odette's. Eliza was an Odette and she looked so cute in her white swan costume. The picture below is before the performance showing a ballet pose kind of.

After the performance all the little princesses were given crowns. Below is Eliza with her flowers.

We are very proud of you Annie. Now all our kids have graduated from Seminary! YAY!

Mothers Day 2011

Mothers Day started the day before Mothers Day for me when cute Annie and April surprised me with 2 dozen butter dream cookies from Normandy Cafe. They are the best sugar cookies ever! We all had one then saved the rest for desert on Mothers Day. Thanks girls!

I am so grateful for the babies below. Because of them I get to celebrate being a mother on Mothers Day! Me with Jennifer.

Me with Andrew.

Me with April.

Me with Alyse.

And last but not least me with Adrianna (Annie).

One of the best things about Mothers Day this year was getting to talk on the phone with my missionary daughter pictured above. It made my day!

These four made it really special too. Thanks for being my children and for the gifts kids and to Andrew thanks for manning the grill!

I'm grateful to my children for making me a grandmother! It is the best! I am always after a good picture of my grandchildren together. It keeps eluding me. These are the best I could get. Some one was crying or running away in them. Oh well.

I think this was the best over all one except that Warren wasn't in it. Anyway I am so thankful for all of these cuties, I love being a mother and grandmother!
