A couple weeks ago Reed and I had a sleepover with these 3 lovely ladies.. Of course we had to make some smores with our fire pit in our back yard.
After we all were stuffed we ended our night snuggling on the couch and watched a movie.
Spending time with family is the best.

Engineer Mountain

After a whole day of corn roasting and also after running a 5k with my mom, some of our family talked Reed and I into going on a night hike. We left Farmington at about 8 pm to
Engineer Mountain
past Purgatory. The sunset was so pretty on the way there.
We got to the trail head at about 10:30. All ready to roll!
The hike was a little over 4 miles round trip but it was a steep hike that's for sure we went up over 2,000 ft in elevation. We all had fun but were so tired especially when we all crawled into bed at 4 am. But it was a blast and next time we will go in the day so we can actually see the view. :)

My Mom

This is my mom...

Isn't she awesome? Yes I know she is.
Well my mom decided she wanted to train for a 5k so she did and wanted me to run it with her when the time came. Well that time was this Saturday. Lets just say I ran only one day before the race so I was super sore but my mom pushed me along. She is a champ and finished that 5k like a star.
I love my mom and am so proud of her for doing it!

Oh yeah!

River Fun

One of our favorite things to do in the summer is go to the river and boogie board. These are some pictures of our most recent visit.
This year Rudy had come to love the river. Last year all he would do is barely get his feet wet but this year he is a swimming machine. If you throw a stick out he won't come back until he has it, even if that means he rides a couple rapids before he gets it.

The swimming machine!

Lake Day

{Saturday July 9th}
Saturday Reed and I took the day off and went to the lake with Justin and Brooke. It was a fun, hot day, perfect to be on the lake.
I wake boarded for my second time. :)
Reed showed off some of his mad skills.

We had tons of fun on the tube, until we all got a headache. :)
Even Truman had his turn on the tube.
We all came home tired and sunburned, but it was worth it!

Los Alamos

{June 26th, 2011}
A couple weeks ago Reed and I were having a rough week and we decided we just needed to go on a little trip. We decided to leave after church to Los Alamos where Reed's sister Annie lives.
Yep we decided to take the motorcycle and less than half way there my buns were hurting. Its not a very comfortable ride for a long time, but it sure was fun and a cool experience.
Driving into town we saw this..

Long story short we were only able to stay 1 night instead of 2 and we were evacuated with Annie's family on Monday afternoon. The good news though the fire never reached the town and Los Alamos is back open.
It was sure a quick/short trip, but it was fun and we learned that is way to far for a bike ride.
