Lynch Family Wedding

We love it when we have a reason to go to Idaho and see Nick’s family. It was great when we had a chance to go there for Kira’s wedding.

When we got to Idaho we were able to go to Donna and Jim’s house to let the kids hang out… Donna and her friend were still making the wedding cake. I cannot believe they would try and make it themselves they did a great job so now I know why…They weren’t sure how to do the flowers on it so I tried to help. They decided I could just do it, I wasn't to sure about that idea but the bride liked it so that’s all that mattered to me..

The wedding was at a beautiful winery in Buhl. It was a perfect day for the couple. They kids loved playing with their other family they don’t see to often. It was great for us to catch up with all nicks cousins..

Soccer Camp

Ryker is finally only enough to play soccer he has been waiting forever to start his own thing he gets so sad that Kennadee gets to go to dance all the time..

Woods Cross girls soccer team put on a 3 hour camp where Rkyer and Daxton got to go show off their skills on the field.

I was surprised to see how well Ryker was doing he was so proud he could take the ball down field and turn it around. Watch out Beckham! Dax and Ryker are on the field now!

EPIC Logan to Jackson Hole

Most people can't say the first time they have ever been to Jackson they ran there. Well now I can...kind of.. My cute friend Julie from the gym asked me to be part of her team. I was very hesitant this girl is a rock star and I had never ran a mile with out having to walk until January. So once I committed I thought I better get my butt in gear. We met at the Smith in Farmington on Friday the 13th at 5am..Wow that was really early for me.

We headed up to Logan to be there by our 7am start time. We go the car loaded decorated and we were on our way. I may have not been the fastest but I felt like I did really well for what I could do. I would recommend everyone doing something like this at some point it is amazing what you learn about yourself and how well you get to know others.

Run #1 was quick and easy

Once our van had finished all of our first runs our van 2 took over so we rested at the school in Grace Idaho we stopped and ate lunch at a little place that was tasty.

Then went and took a nap on the lawn of the school. We redecorated our car...bigger is better. Once van two was done we were off again.

Run #2 True Epic beauty running along the river as the sun went down it was a little over 5 miles but was steady.

I was able to keep my pace around 9:30 which was my goal. I was very pleased. We finished out the rest of our van pretty quickly. It was amazing at 11pm there was no moon in sight and a million meteor showers it was amazing to experience.

Run #3 Words can't explain I am just happy its over with..It started about 4 hours later than expected....I will just leave it at that.

We found an amazing Mexican joint that really hit the spot after our van had finished all three legs were finished as we waited for Van #2

I was able to help one of our runners with her last leg she wasn't feeling very well and wasn't going to run until the last second so I stayed with her to help her keep going.

This had made me realize I can't wait for the Red Rock Relay in a month. It will be even better. Even if you are the last team to finish and cheated a little. It still was worth it.
