Playing in the leaves!

Running is kind of fun!

In October, I ran my first half marathon.  I actually really enjoyed it!

Even though two years ago I said that I would never run another Ragnar, I have now done three.  Josh and I participated in the Vegas Ragnar this month.  

Halloween 2012

Bradlee was Jake from the disney channel show "Jake and the Neverland Pirates."  We were crazy and even dyed Bradlee's hair black so he looked more like Jake.   

Bradlee had a cute little halloween party at school.  This was the "boy" table.

We carved Mickey and Donald on our pumpkins.  Bradlee has always hated the feel of the guts in the pumpkins.  I forced him to touch them and he started dry heaving.  He hated me for a while after that!

Bradlee is 6!

Bradlee still has four more days before his birthday, but I wanted to share his pictures I took today.  

He is getting so big.  I can't believe he is in kindergarten.  He is such a smart boy and is truly a joy and blessing to Josh and I.  

And he looks mighty handsome in his pink shirt.  The kid will wear anything if I say it looks nice.  I think he truly likes it though.

A month of races

We have been keeping busy this month participating in races together as a family.  We did the color run and then Bradlee and I did the dirty dash.  Bradlee did the kids race, the piglet plunge, while I completed the 10K course!

Dirty Dash



Before the kids race

Bradlee got a handful of mud thrown in his face on accident by a very "kind" lady who was walking through the mud pit in front of us.  He was NOT pleased and said that he never wants to do that race again!

Kindergarten: here he comes!

Bradlee is officially in kindergarten as of one hour ago.  I am so excited for him, but I will definitely miss him while he is gone.

Summer time!

Warm weather is starting to arrive and we have taken full advantage!  We celebrated easter by dying eggs and kept up with tradition by rolling them down a hill.

 We got ice cream from the ice cream truck.

Played at the park.

 Set up the swimming pool.

 Saw the Hunger Games at the Drive-in.

Honored those who selflessly serve our country.

Went to our favorite vacation spot!!

 Played in the sprinklers.

 And learned how to ride a bike without training wheels!  

Ogden Mararthon

Josh and his friend, Cody, ran the ogden marathon this month.  

 We were there to cheer them on as they approached the finish line.  We are so proud of him!

Bradlee ran the Kids K and did a great job!  He really likes running and amazes me with how far he can run.

We Did It Again!

At the beginning of the month, we went to Disneyland for the 7th time!

The new Lego Store was AWESOME!!

My wonderful husband dragged me on the teacups.  Yep, I still hate the ride!

We met up with our friends, the Tongas, a couple of the days.  Nano on Screamin' was awesome.  You could hear him yelling from the ground!

Nothing was better than Nano on Tower of Terror, though!  Salote and Bradlee were so brave.

Even though Bradlee says he hates that ride, we got him on it 4 times.  We may have bribed him with new toys and candy, but it is my favorite ride in California Adventure.

My boys love Bear River Rapids.  Me, not so much!

It was still fun all by myself!

Waiting to go on Splash Mountain.  The big drop is NOT his favorite, but he still loves this ride.

This picture shows just what I am talking about.  Bradlee definitely hates the drop!

We can't wait for our 8th trip!
