St. George Marathon 2012

I am breaking our vacation up into a few parts. I couldn't tackle it all at once. First up is the Marathon. We had quite the crew there to watch him cross the finish line.
 Love this pic of Grandpa Brad and Oakley.
 Me and Jenny

Heidi and the children.

Trent beating out tube socks guy.

Trent had a rough run. Had some leg/muscle and bowels issues. He went straight to the massage table. Not a lot of chatting it up for him. Even though he had issues he still PR'd with a time of 2:41:11. Amazing.

So while we were waiting for him to recover I tried to get a shot with me and the kids. No one was really happy about it.

After Trent had a massage and threw up a few times we snagged this picture of him and his running partners.  They all did amazing.

And finally a group shot. Love this family of mine.
Another marathon come and gone. Peace out until next year, which I, for some reason, signed up to run. Eeek!

School Pictures

Here are the kids school pictures for your viewing pleasure. Mostly because I need a post and I don't have time to go through all our vacation pictures. Hopefully that will happen this weekend.

We have started the soccer season here at The Hoard and it has made our life total chaos. We have a game or practice every night except Friday. We can barely keep up with it all.
The boys are on the Green Lightning team.

Oakley is on the Red Race Cars. Not sure where they came up with that name.

And the girls are on the Pink Unicorns. Which Aiden informed them was dumb because all the unicorns can do is fly and make rainbows.

Here is to Soccer!

Labor Day Weekend

Over Labor Day Trent took The Hoard up to the cabin for the weekend. Unfortunately I had to work so I had to stay home by myself. I am not going to lie, it was pretty relaxing, but I would have rather been "relaxing" up at the cabin.

They arrived late and had a midnight snack.

Trent had to fit all 6 of them on one 4 wheeler. The kids didn't seem to mind.


They found this cute little frog.

Which I am sure Aiden either wanted to keep as a pet or try and kill it.

Some deer came up for a visit as well.

It rained and apparently the kids were amazed. It must rain differently up there.

So differently they needed a different view.


But since it rained they were able to roast marshmallows. Trent gets extra points for this. He hates smelling like smoke and he hates making smores.


They travelled to the "yelling place." The kids love this.

Trent was so nice to take the kids and entertain them all weekend. Some of his family joined him near the end of the weekend and he was so glad. They were all so good to help with The Hoard and give Trent somewhat of a break.

Speaking of how amazing Trent is I realized even more how much he does around here.

The counter stayed a little messy for a while after they all left.

The garbage was full for most the weekend.


My bed never got made.

And the laundry piled up.

Just had to document how awesome Trent is and how much he does to make our lives spectacular and super clean. ;)

And don't worry, I am not as much of a lazy wife as you might think. I had every thing cleaned up by the time he got home.

SG Girls Trip

Back in August we went on a Girls Trip down to good old St. George. Love St. George and love these Jensen girls.

We spent a lot of time playing in the pool. We even had our own Olympic Trials.

And of course what is any vacation without eating? We ate it up at Larry's Diner, Pizza Factory, In & Out, poolside....and it has been so long I can't remember where else. What a shame...

  And as always we did a lot of shopping and had show and tell afterwards.

There were a lot of hours spent just hanging out, reading books and magazines, and laughing it up.

We took a few GQ photos.

And some "normal" ones with our beautiful goggle eyes.

We had some fun with the underwater camera.

And tried to capture us going down the slide. I left the unflattering "stirrup" pictures off.

And when I got home I noticed a few people had a great time taking pictures of themselves.



And to finish the post with a beautiful portrait of me.
Just call me Floyd from Dumb and Dumber.

It was a fabulous trip and loved relaxing to my hearts content. Thanks to all you girls for making the trip and thanks to Teri for hosting it!!!
