A birthday, the park and a triathalon!

Saturday was my dad's birthday! He is the greatest dad ever! We celebrated on Sunday cause we were out of town for a triathalon but Dad I hope you had the best birthday yet! Love you so much!

Last week for our "girls day" we went to Layton park and it was a blast! All of the girls were there! So for a little while we had a total of seven moms and seven babies! And you might think it was kind of crazy, but it really wasn't. The babies loved being able to crawl around and find whatever they wanted...to eat. Yes I know, I shouldn't let my child chew on a twig, but he threw a minor fit every time I took it away. So I thought, what the heck, it's just dirt right? Well lets hope so!

This was the funniest. Jaylee loved pushing the strollers around all day long! She would push the stroller all around the park. It was hilarious. So I put Boston inside, and he was having a blast!

My friend Kaylee from our old ward came with her adorable little girl Remy. She's 4 months old, but still had just as much fun as all the other babies.

This is six of the seven babies and moms. Cute crowd huh?

Last weekend we went to Scofield and had a camping overnighter with Ryan's sister Jen and her husband Dave and their cute little family to watch them race in a triathalon. These guys are amazing! They have been training for quite awhile and it sure paid off! This is right before the swim.

Next was the bike...

And last was the run. This was just before Dave crossed the finish line and he's smiling! Jen had just a big a smile on her face too! I'm sure they were excited to finish! I'm not sure of the lengths for all of them, but it was far! Talk about being in shape!

But probably the cutest was to watch little Jacque who is 5 yrs old compete in the kid's triathalon. She was the youngest and beat half the kids there!

She took first in her age group!

Good job Dave, Jen and Jacque! Dave finished 4th in his age group and Jen 3rd in hers.

And we can't forget the cheerleaders!

It was such a blast watching you guys! Thanks for a fun filled weekend!

This last week we went to Bear Lake with my family!  It was such a blast!  Amber, Ashlie's friend, was with us the first day.  She's a blast to be around!  Her family came up the next day and she hooked up with them after that.  Glad you came Amber!

We went up on Wednesday and came back on Saturday.  I haven't been to Bear Lake for a long time and forgot how fun it was!  The water was so clear it was unbelievable!  You can see our whole bodies through the water.  The water wasn't quite as warm as Lake Powell was, but it still wasn't bad.

Here is my SMOKIN HOT husband getting ready to show my family how to surf!

We even got my mom to go on the tube!  If any of you know my mom, you'll know that she is absolutely terrified of the water.  Especially lakes and oceans and stuff like that.  So it was quite the accomplishment that we talked her into getting on the tube.  And if any of you know Ryan, you'll know that he is the most protective dad ever.  So my mom knew if she had Boston on the tube with her, she would be pretty safe.  Ryan took them on a nice slow ride and after the fact, my mom was glad she did it!  Notice how calm the water is...

Well the next day, it was anything but calm!  It was like the ocean out there because of the winds.  The picture doesn't do justice to how big the waves were.  We had to come back in because it was so bad, and a couple of us got sea sick too.  That was no fun!  

So that day we stayed at the condos and played games instead.  They had a volleyball court in the back of our condos.  It was fun except for the rocky sand and the weeds surrounding the court.  That's why we are wearing socks...but as we were leaving, we noticed there was a soft sand volleyball court with no weeds surrounding it right by the front desk.  Oops!  Now we know for next time!

Boston was having a blast watching us all play!  He would clap his hands every time he would hear us cheer.  It was dang cute!  I forgot that it gets a little cooler up there at nights, so I didn't think to bring a jacket for Boston.  So that's why he is wearing a robe!

The last day, the winds calmed down and we were able to take the boat out again.  Me and my sister rode the tube together and like I said, Ryan is really protective of his family, so he was going pretty slow for me cause he knew I was kind of scared of the tube.  But he was going so slow, we decided to try and stand up on the tube.  It was fun!  Then he sped up and made us go outside the wake and that was kind of scary, but it was still fun!

Me and Ryan!  

Family vacations are the best!  I love them because for a few days you can forget about all your normal everyday worries...keeping the house clean, work, cooking etc.  And instead you just spend quality time with each other laughing and playing games!  We've been on a lot of vacations this year and have a few more to go on!  This weekend we're going on a little camping overnighter to watch Dave, Jen and little Jacque race in a triathlon.  Then next week we have the yearly Randall Family Reunion and the week after that, we will be going back to Lake Powell with the Smiths.  So we'll keep you updated!  Thanks family for such a fun Bear Lake trip!  We love you!

4th of July fun!

We hope you all had a great fourth of July!  We sure did!  Here are some highlights:
We started off the morning going to the Cherry Days Parade.  What fun!

This year was the first year we didn't have someone in the family actually in the parade!  It was kind of sad!  Between cheerleading, band, football and officers, we've had someone to cheer for every year.  But Dustin is out of junior high now and no one else was in anything that would be in the parade!

Boston sure had fun though!

Actually we started our fun the night before with a big slumber party at my in-laws.  We stayed up late playing games and having yummy food!  Then after the parade, we came back and had a fun pool party!

We had all sorts of relay races and it was a blast!  Everyone swam!  This is Ryan's grandparents racing each other!  They were awesome!  

All together we had a fun 4th of July and hope you all did too!

We've been tagged!

So I was tagged a long time ago (sorry Kaylee!) but I'm doing it now!
How long did you date? About a year before we got married.
How old is he? 25
Who eats more? Sometimes him, sometimes me!

Who said “I love you” first? He did...it was cute, he said "I really want to tell you something but I'm not sure if I should"  I already knew, so I told him to and he did!
Who is taller? Him, by over a foot!
Who sings better? Him even though he will NEVER admit it!
Who is smarter? We're both probably about the same, but he definitely learns a lot faster!
Whose temper is worse? Mine, he is super patient...especially with me! I like to get things done and he likes to take his time!
Who does the laundry? Me
Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? Ryan.  I'm by the door to get Boston at night...yes he still does not sleep through the night!
Who pays the bills? Me
Who cooks dinner? Me...but it's not very often!

Who drives when you are together? He does.
Who is more stubborn? Probably me
Who kissed who first? He kissed me on the last day we were in Arizona together.  My friends and I went to visit him and his friends while they were there for school.  That's where it all started!
Who is the first to admit when they are wrong? Him, I said I was more stubborn!
Whose parents do you see the most? Same...we try to make it as equal as possible.  Both grandparents can't get enough of Boston.
Who proposed? He did, he had the ring for almost a month or maybe a few?  Anyways, I was at his parents house and had fallen asleep on his bed.  He decided he was going to do it then.  So he made a pathway through their house with candles and Christmas lights (he had a Christmas light business at the time) and his little brother came and woke me up and escorted me through the house and Ryan was at the end of the pathway in a tux down on his knees.  He's so cute!
Who is more sensitive? We're probably both the same.
Who has more friends? I think it's equal.
Who has more siblings? Me, he has 1 sister and 2 brothers and I have 1 sister and 3 brothers.
Who wears the pants in the family? I think it's pretty equal, but if you ask him, he might differ!  But we decide things together for the most part and try to work as a team.
**I tag: Ally, Chelsie, Lauren and Lindsey!
