The Wasatch Back Ragnar Relay

Last weekend was so much fun! Adam, Erika, Clark, and I did the 180 mile Ragnar Relay from Logan to Park City. We were on a team of 12 people and we all ran three different legs of the race of varying lengths and difficulty. We started Friday afternoon and finished Saturday evening. You run through the night and throw your sleeping bag anywhere you can to try to catch a couple hours of sleep. It was such a beautiful race covering six lakes, streams, ski resorts, and canyons. Although we can barely walk today...we can't wait to do it next year!

Caroline's 1st Birthday!

Last Sunday was bittersweet. Our sweet baby Caroline turned 1! The year has gone by faster than we could have ever imagined, and nothing has ever brought us more joy than our darling baby. Her party was a blast, from her dunking her face in the cake, to watching everyone take swings at the pinata.

Salt Lake Bees Game with Make-A-Wish

We got invited to attend a Salt Lake Bees game yesterday with one of our wish kids. We thought that it would be freezing and that it might rain, but it turned out to be great weather. Andrea got to eat a "National League Hot Dog" (her favorite) and we were able to visit with one of our favorite wish families. We love to see how happy and how much energy the wish kids have even though most of them are, or have been very sick. It also makes us appreciate how lucky we are that Caroline has been so healthy.
