St. George Marathon #3 and Other Things

Here is another reason for my lack of posting. I am never home. We went to St. George this past weekend for a little vacay and the Marathon. It was a good time, but I already need another vacation WITHOUT kids. They are killing me these days.

First up Jeepin:
Trent pulled the jeep down so we could visit the "big sand" with the kids. Trent loves to drive the Beast and will take any chance he can get. Not sure it was worth towing it down and the flat tire and blow out, but Trent probably has a different opinion on that.

We were going up some red rock and kept sliding down sideways. The kids were pretty scared and I have to admit I was nervous too. However, Andrew was just fine and looked out the jeep and said, "I know the problem. There is a big hole right there." He thought it was great.

We finally made it to the big sand. The kids loved it. Lots of sand in lots of places on their body, but they loved it!

And here are some awesome jumps and poses from Paige and Morgan. Like I said, the kids thought it was the coolest thing.

The Marathon:

It is always fun to go see Trent finish his races. And the kids love it as much as I do. And as always Trent did amazing!

He came in 38th I think. I guess I should know this for sure, but I don't.
The kids love seeing Trent afterwards, but I really think they like the treats he brings them.

Last Bouldering:

Kim and Luke, being the awesome Aunt and Uncle that they are, took the 3 older kids climbing. The kids loved it. And I loved seeing the pics and video afterwards. The greatest story was when Andrew swore trying to get his climbing shoes on. On the video it shows Aiden and Andrew having a discussion on what are swear words and what aren't. I wish I could put the video on here, but I can't. Maybe someday. And just to clarify, Trent and I don't swear, who knows where Andrew got it. It couldn't be the kind of movies he watches....

So thats it. Stay tuned for gymnastics, zoo, and the last soccer game. Hopefully soon....if at all.

Oh my heck, Trent's amazingly fast. Brandon and I both want to know what his time is for this one. We're always in awe. :)

This trip was awesome! Can't wait to take the kids climbing again.

So fun. Nice to get away from home for a while. Even with the kids. But next time maybe it can be just you and Trent for a while. You can always drop them off at my house for a while if you need a break.
