Girls Camp

Camp Joseph
July 13-17th 2010
This was our first year at our new camp, Camp Joseph! What an amzing time I had. I forgot to get me camera out most of the time so I missed so many fun and amazing memories. I sure love the Fairfax Ward YW. What an amazing group of girls they are!


Go Anne!

Help, I'm falling!

Yikes...keepin' it real with Tori!

Fairfax ward leaders
I love these women so much!

She's a Middle Schooler...Ahhhhh!!!

5th Grade Continuation

Abbie is officially finished with Elementary School and is moving on to Middle School. We are so proud of Abbie and the kind of student, friend, and example she is!

Abbie and her teacher Mr. Kittrel
Following Continuation Mr. Kittrel came up to Abbie and I to make sure that I knew how fabulous he thought Abbie was. He wanted me to know that at the end of every school day Abbie would make sure she came up to him and told him thank you before she left. He said that on most days, the last part of school can be the hardest for teachers. They are busy trying to help other students who need stuff before the bell rings and are tired after a long day of teaching. He got chocked up and teary eyed expressing to Abbie how much he appreciated her saying thank you every day. I was one proud mom!!!


Go Claire!
Azure, Hannah, Lizzie and Claire. These girls are the best of friends and have so much fun together!

Abbie is an amazing runner. Her long legs make it look easy! She took 5th in the 800M which, in my opinion, is the most difficult race. I hope she has a desire to keep running.

Helping clean up after a fabulous day with friends and family!

Playing some serious catch up!

Yikes! It has been way too long since I have blogged. Can I use the excuse that life has been busy? It will never change so I had better just buck up and get back to it! Since I am using this as my family journal I don't want to forget some of the fun stuff we did over the summer. Starting with our camping trip over Memorial weekend...

BOULDER, CO May 28th - 31st
I decided kid of last minute to run in the BolderBoulder with my friend Paula. We decided to make a weekend of it and headed up Boulder Canyon with our families for some camping before the big race on Monday. We had such a blast!

Watching a movie in the trailer


The dads and the kids (minus Jake and Emma) rode their bikes to Nederland, a cute little town that was close to where we were camping. It was quite the challenging ride with lots of hills. Paula and I drove, after giving them a 15 minute head start, just in case someone couldn't make it. Everyone did...we were so proud!!!

In Nederland is a cute Farris Wheel that has all hand carved animals. It took one guy 25 years to finish each of the detailed animals. It was opening weekend...

The BolderBoulder is such a fun race. We ran it with over 53,700 people!
