What a fun week it has been. The kids were in the heighth of their glory. They loved every minute of cow camp this year, except for maybe when we told them it was bed time. We slept in a tent, chased cows early morning to mid afternoon, fished, played Folf, roped, ate great food, sang around the campfire, froze a little at night, woke up with aches and pains, smelled not so great, and did I mention chased cows. It really was a great experience this year and I know it was everything my kids had been looking forward to since last year! I will look back on this later as a reminder why we lead the "poor" cowboy life. It raises great kids!

RooT BeEr FlOaTs

What is better then some Root Beer Floats after sitting through your sister's piano recital. Oh, did I say sitting through, well there were those 8 trips to the bathroom between 3 boys! I ran the Governor's Cup Race 10K (6.2 miles for those who are not good at conversions) last Saturday, in the rain/sleet/snow. I was happy to accomplish it and even more excited to run with my kids in the mile fun run. Hyrum's little legs carried him the whole way without stopping and there were some good hills in that mile!
KwinLee and Spencer got out ahead of us and they ran the whole way too.

Spencer beat us all and he actually beat a lot of the runners. He did really well.

This was my race at about 6.15 miles into it. I had the finish line in site and was just happy I made it!
