Trent's Manly Weekend!

As I said in my previous post, Trent ventured down to Grand Junction to run the Rim Rock Run. It is a 22.5 mile race that winds over the Colorado National Monument. Trent said it was one of the coolest races he has done and one of the hardest with the gain of elevation. Trent did really well. He came in 11th overall and 1st in his age division. I was kind of bummed I couldn't be there. This is his first race that I haven't been there to watch him run across the finish line.
Trent cruising up of the hill. Doesn't the scenery look amazing? And I think Trent looks amazing too! ;)

Trent always wants to get out and go wheelin', so he took his chance and found a place to go on his mini vacation. It makes it hard to get out and go when the jeep doesn't hold our whole family. Too bad we don't have a money tree so we could buy a second jeep!?!

All my boys. I really like this picture. My boys love to be with their dad and they love to be out in the mountains!

Andrew, Aiden, and Megan. Megan is a week younger than the boys. I think the boys really had fun playing with her. I don't know if she felt the same way...
Trent and the boys really had a great time. Aiden and Andrew keep talking about going back to Ryan's. Thanks to Angela for watching my boys while Trent ran his race. That is no easy task! Next time we will have to plan a trip when we can all go down and hang out! Thanks again for having them Ryan and Angela!

Wow! Nice work. I'm still trying to figure out how I'm going to get through running 3.1 miles for the Turkey Trot. It's pretty much going to kill me.

Funny I just read your prior post after I commented. I actually like seven brides for seven brothers and we just watched it two Sunday's ago, hence the band name. James didn't like it. (except the avalanche) I guess it is true that I am not as Manly as Trent.

The picture of Trent running ...love the back drop. Since Trent is my bro I would rather not comment on the "manly" title. It looks beautiful there.

Andrew's little face just kills me. HUGE congrats to Trent on doing so well in the race! Woohoo! I love that he actually got out of his car to take a picture of it on a rock.

Those are great pictures! I would love to go for a ride in the jeep if I wasn't such a chicken, looks scary. I am so excited to get my butt kicked at the Turkey Trot!! You and Trent will beat us all by an hour!
