What a fun weekend we had! There is nothing like getting the cousins together
and letting them play until they drop. We rented a condo in Moab instead
of a hotel and it was perfect. Elise even planned an easter egg hunt for all
the kids. This was my first time in Moab and I didn't get to see too much
because of the marathon and then the exhaustion that followed, so I would
love to go back one day and see all the sights!

Well, I finished my 2nd 1/2 marathon. Now I guess I can say I've ran a marathon! j/k But really my sister in law Katie says it best when she says we ran the FULL 1/2 marathon! These pictures were taken just as I crossed the finish line and I am really holding onto Tim so that I don't pass out! I am so glad I did this marathon and I hope to do another one day, but not for awhile. I really didn't get to prepare for this marathon since I spent 6 weeks after st. george sick and then the last 3 weeks with a broken rib-courtesy of Davis. From the first mile I was thinking things like, "What the heck am I doing", and "I think I want to die right now so that I don't have to run anymore", and "this is excruciating!", and my favorite "Why did I PAY money to do this?" I did have a stretch between miles 9-11 where I felt really good though. I was in a good rhythm and those thoughts went away, at least until we came out of the canyon. About a block from the finish line I was feeling like I was going to throw up and/or pass out and I wanted to stop and walk across the finish line. Just then my sweet sister in law Elise jumped out of the crown with her daughter Brinley and they ran across the finish with me. Then I just had to focus on not crying, especially when I saw Tim and the kids in the crowd (I didn't think Tim was going to be there because he was back at the condo watching all the kids). All in all, it was hard, but I'm glad I did it (in 2 hours 26 minutes) and maybe one day I will break the 2 hour mark!

Emmary is such a funny girl! We truly get a kick out of her everyday! This top picture is Emmary asleep. The polka dot thing is her bum. Don't worry, she is breathing!
This is a picture of Em and I at the UTAH gymnastics meet. Emm loves gymnastics, which is a good thing since she has the body of a rubber band. She is very excited to start gymnastics class this summer. She sat on my lap the whole meet and she loved watching the girls flipping through the air.
Emmary isisted on wearing her halloween clothes the other day. Oh well!

Boys really are more trouble!! Emmary never did strange things like flush cold medicine down the toilet, run out of the house and ring the doorbell of a stranger, or grab the toothpaste and get it all over the place!! Davis is truly a handful, and like the blogging mom I am, I took these pictures before getting upset. I just had to document it!

These are just some random pictures from the last couple of weeks. The best part about living in SLC (besides the live-in babysitters!) is being close to the Mandarin restaurant in Bountiful. This is our favorite restaurant and it was so fun to go on a date with my sweet sweet husband!
Here is Davis before church one Sunday. He got this cute suit for Christmas and I realized that I didn't have any pictures of him in it. He wouldn't sit still so the pictures are a little blurry, but oh well. Isn't he so handsome?!?
And just chillin in a box. Who needs toys when you have your blanket, a binkie and a box?
