Pioneer Classic 10k

Saturday- Woke up at 5:30 and met Whitney at A.F. park and ride by 6:00. We headed to Provo for the Pioneer Classic 10K. I was nervous this was only my second time running for an hour straight. The buzzer sounded and the race was on. We started out good I was full of adrenaline and excitement! The the hill started pretty much right away. We got to what seemed to be the top of the hill and then the turn came it was straight up and defiantly not over.  This is the point that people started turning around and running backwards. This was where I began to speed walk. Psh I have not trained for anything like that beast! They weren't kidding when they said this is Goliath! I sure felt like Daivd for a few minutes there. Then we passed the 1 mile marker still climbing the hill. I thought wow a whole mile up hill. I bet my time is going to be extremely long, oh well I just need to finish! We got to the top and there was a water stop thank goodness! From then on it was up and down up and down finally down the South side of the Provo temple and back to Timpview high school.
Okay so maybe I am mean or some call me competitive , but we were at mile 4.5 and there were some girls in front of me that were with us most of the run and I didn't want them to beat me. I took off I passed them and realized I still have 1 more mile left to go. I kept going and passed a few more people. There I was crossing the finish line at 1:06:09!! I thought for sure I'd finish at 1:30:00 with all the walking Goliath made me do. I finished with a 10:40 pace not my best time, but hey something to look forward to beating!

Mike, Pey and Ashton came and found us at about mile 4 or 5.
Ashton took some pretty amazing pictures, I had fun editing a few adding some color!






The first two are about mile 3 I think. The last two are crossing the finish line and I'm looking at my time. 

Whit finishing, she looks killer awesome huh!

We celebrated by going to Gandies!

7 Months

Another month has come and gone. This one just flew by!
*Pey is standing, well she has been standing for a while now, but she is pulling her self up! She did it a few days ago when we were out on the grass and I was laying next to her and she pulled her self up. I tried to get her to do it again and take a video, but you can't see much. Then yesterday she was sitting next to me on the couch and grabbed my hair with one hand the couch with the other and stood up. I was very happy, but in some pain. She has quite the grip.
*Her favorite thing to play with is paper. She tears it apart then EATS it... I know where she gets this from, MIKE! He is a paper eater too, ya gross I know!
* Sleeping through the night? Fat chance! I say that because last night she woke up at 2 and 4AM She usually sleeps from 11 to 6:30 which is okay. I don't like this new little schedule of hers...
* Pey is addicted to otter pops, her dad gave her some of his and now if we have one she cries till she gets some. When I do give her some and it's gone she cries, trying to explain all gone to a 7 month old HA!
* Da Da is still her favorite thing to say. I say Ma Ma and she just says Da Da even louder :) She is screaming a lot more especially in places that are dead silent. She has to fill the silence with screams or giggles.
*Diaper is a 2-3 the 2s are defiantly too small and 3s are big, I'm glad they have the 2.5s.
* Even though her nose has been non stop runny and she is always drooling she is extremely happy for a teething baby. None have broke through yet.
*When I wipe her nose she makes the sound as if she is blowing her nose with her mouth it's funny. Another thing I need a video of!
*The electronics need a new place to stay. She crawls right to them every time.
* When she is not happy she is whiny and wants to be held.
* I can't leave the room with out getting a little tantrum out of her. I have to talk to her the whole time I'm in a different room. Unless she is in her bed then she knows and won't cry!
* She loves her bouncer and loves to jump. Even when we take her out she keeps on jumping!
* Pey loves her aunts they watch her a lot and I know she loves them all! Thanks Aunties!

She likes to stand on the couch and watch who ever's in the Kitchen usually da da making her a ba ba.

In Mom and Dads bed, she kept trying to wake him up. She loves to cuddle with her daddy!
 The neighbors Boston Terrier. She loved him!
Swimming with Kayla and Dannika


She crawled all the way over to Kilo, I remember when she was rolling this far.
Kind of a creepy pic with their eyes.

Then she crawled back.

Watching her first Disney movie. Hercules of course!
I will let her watch some of the Disney shows on TV too, but there's nothing like a good movie.
Hanging out in the back yard with Kilo.

Bouncing away!

2011 Swimming!

I find that someday I just have to get out of the house and this is what we've been doing. She is a water lover! She loves splashing then hates that she has water on her face, it's really funny to watch.

Here were are at the Disney store trying on 2T swim suits. Yes you read that right 2T!! I didn't like the baby ones anyway and the clerk told me they fit really small so maybe that is why she fits in this. Na I think it's her height!

At Lindon Pool with the Esplins

At Seven Peaks with the Moellers and Greens


Alpine Splash Pad with the Moellers



Pleasant Grove Pool with Payden and Annette!

Even swimming in the tub, she rolls and rolls and rolls in the tub.

4th of July 2011

I have lost my camera, so I had to improvise with what other people have taken.

Friday
Heathers Birthday Party up in Midway. It was so fun and way beautiful. We played volleyball and ate some delicious food!
Pey hung out and jumped on the tramp with uncle Colby.

Saturday
Went to Transformers with Colby, Phil and Mike. Payden was on a fire just in case you were wondering.
Later that night we went to Dinner at Terra Mia with The Halls.
Then to Stadium of Fire!!! We took Pey, maybe I'm a bad mom. She liked the fireworks though. We were nervous about her little ears. I got out the shooting muffs and when she had those on all she could do is stare at the fireworks. No smile and no tears just pure fascination!

David Archuletta and Brad Paisley preformed!






squish face!


Monday
We all woke up around 5:30 and headed to Provo for my Freedom Fest 5k. It was amazing and so fun. I will do it every year as long as I am not with child.

I wanted to stick around for the big Provo Parade, but I was STARVING. Gandies wasn't open so we headed to Village Inn with our friend Phil.

Little Miss Americana on her day! The 4th of July. Her FIRST 4th of July!
Mike talking to Phil or maybe puckering up for a smooch.
