Rugged Maniac 2015

This is our 2nd year participating in the Rugged Maniac.  This was Sofia's first time.  She was so excited.  Basically, you run/walk a 5K with 25 obstacles mixed in between.  And mud.  It is my favorite.  We had such a great time.  

Isabel turns 12...

Isabel turned 12 on October 14.  Seriously can't.  My baby is 12.  And in Jr High.  And now in YW's.  And i just can't.

Happy 40th...for real this time.

Sept 19, 2015. My bestie since the beginning of time...or since our junior year in high school...took me to yummy food and to an amazing show on my birthday.  She is totally toooooo good to me.  Moki's is the most delicious Hawaiian food.  And Wicked was just perfect.  Love you Emily!

Happy 40th....

September 12, 2015.  My sister, friends and family threw a surprise birthday party for me this year.  I was definitely not expecting anything, especially since this was a week before my actual birthday.  Everyone was in on the details, except me.  I thought Kaitlin and I were going to go eat dinner togther, little did I know my family and friends were waiting for me at a friends house just one street over from mine.  I thought we were dropping a swimsuit off for Isabel, then to my surprise I see my family.  Kaitlin, Gaby and my mother made delicious food.  All my favorite cookies, a delicious cake, and yummy sandwiches and veggies and dip.  Totally unexpected, but so fun and special.  Love my family.  Love my friends.

I drove my kids and Gaby's kids up from the valley to Pinetop.  It was a squished car.  But we survived.  Jenny, mom, myself and the kids were the campers.  Dad came up for dinner and stayed the night with us on our last night.  Good times.

The campsite.  Grayling Campground.  Our favorite.
